Brian Roberts and Corey Patterson continue to rank among the American League leaders in stolen bases, but O.J. Simpson says most of them belong to him, and he wants them back. Jamie Walker now holds the Orioles' single-season record for appearances with 77. Here's hoping that next year, he can return to his intended role - left-handed relief specialist. Right-handed hitters are batting .283 against him, compared with .223 for left-handers. The bullpen doesn't need a complete overhaul, but the Orioles must find a closer and an eighth-inning guy. Jim Hoey could develop into the latter, but not yet. roch.

As the year comes to a close, it seems appropriate to look back on the most lasting Orioles memories of 2011. It's no easy task, as there plenty of things that stood out in the past 12 months, and there are many ways to go about this. But I'm going to name a best memory and worst memory, both on and off the field. (Of course, as one would expect of a 69-93 season, there are far more bad on-field memories than good ones, but I'm sticking to one each.) Below are the things that left the biggest impression on me. We'd like to hear yours in the comments section.

It remains to be seen how good the Orioles' pitching staff will be this year, but they sure have the makings of a heck of a Division I basketball team. Nine pitchers in camp are 6 feet 5 or taller, and four others are 6-4. Asked whether he has seen so much size in one place before, Orioles starter Adam Loewen said: "I saw it in Jurassic Park. I don't know, maybe we're playing the wrong sport." With that in mind, Loewen, who is 6-6, was asked who would be in his starting lineup if he were coaching the Orioles' basketball team.

Jim Hoey got the call to the majors Sunday while Class AAA Rochester was in Scranton. He left Scranton for Philadelphia -- but missed his connecting flight to Baltimore, so he didn't arrive in Charm City until 12:30 a.m. Monday. It was plenty of time for the right-hander to think about how he would approach his former team. "The last two games of spring training they were just sitting dead-red fastball," Hoey said. "I wanted to show them tonight that you can't do that. " So Hoey, with a fastball that hit 97 miles per hour on the Camden Yards radar gun Monday, opened with a split-fingered fastball to Derek Lee, then got him to fly out to end the seventh.

The Orioles put their hitting shoes back on at Ed Smith Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, hammering Francisco Liriano and the Minnesota Twins 11-2 in the first game of another split-squad day in South Florida. The O's are scheduled to play the Boston Red Sox tonight at City of Palms Park in Fort Myers, but the "A" team enjoyed a cool, sunny afternoon with the wind blowing out hard to left field. Vladimir Guerrero, Adam Jones and Ryan Adams enjoyed it most of all, slamming long home runs to carry Jake Arrieta to his first victory of the exhibition season.

Jeremy Guthrie could have packed his belongings and returned to his Las Vegas home, his body aching and his pride a little bruised. The 2007 season brought enough personal achievements to satisfy most rookie pitchers, even as it threatened to end sooner than the schedule dictated. There wasn't much reason for Guthrie to keep pushing himself as the Orioles tried to avoid last place, except he wanted to take the ball one more time before letting go. A strained oblique kept Guthrie off the mound for nearly three weeks, but he fought through the pain until the muscle healed, convinced manager Dave Trembley that he shouldn't be shut down and gave the Orioles five innings last night, along with some much-needed stability for their rotation, in an 8-5 victory over Toronto at Camden Yards.

Andy MacPhail, the target of intense fan criticism this offseason for his failed attempt to sign the Orioles' top free-agent targets, was one of the busiest general managers this week at baseball's winter meetings. Over four days, MacPhail acquired a new left side of the infield by trading for Mark Reynolds and J.J. Hardy, added a utility player in Brendan Harris, agreed to terms with closer Koji Uehara, selected pitcher Adrian Rosario in the Rule 5 draft, and laid the groundwork for deals with free-agent first baseman Adam LaRoche and several relievers, including Kevin Gregg.

When he retired his final batter, Orioles emergency starter Rodrigo Lopez sprinted off the mound and into the Orioles' dugout. He shouldn't have been in such a hurry to give the ball to the Orioles' bullpen. In an unsightly seventh inning that prompted boos from those fans at Camden Yards who actually showed up to cheer for the home team, the Orioles coughed up a three-run lead to the New York Yankees when rookie reliever Jim Hoey melted down, and converted outfielder Fernando Tatis fell down.

TORONTO -- While there is uncertainty about who will be the Orioles' closer next year with the news that Chris Ray had ligament transplant surgery on his right elbow, manager Dave Trembley said there should be no such ambiguity for the rest of this season. Even though Trembley removed Danys Baez in the middle of a save situation during Wednesday's 6-3 victory over the New York Yankees, the manager said Baez will remain the team's closer in most situations. "I don't think there's anybody else," Trembley said.
