We'll take a break from Orioles rumors that most likely won't come to fruition -- I never say never, but I say "most likely not" a whole lot in the winter -- to look at the findings of a pretty cool book I thought would be of interest to many of you. In October, Sports Illustrated put out a monstrous coffee-table book called “Baseball's Greatest,” in which a panel of SI's baseball writers and editors looked at the best at each position in...

Jim Palmer pitched most of his career in front of defenses replete with Gold Glovers. Brooks Robinson , Paul Blair, Mark Belanger, Bobby Grich. Palmer benefited from them all. Yet the Hall of Famer turned television analyst barely hesitated recently when asked to put this year's Orioles defense in historical perspective. "This is the best defense they've ever had," Palmer said. "It's pretty simple. " The 2013 Orioles are on pace to obliterate the all-time record for fewest team errors in a season.

It has become a matter of seeming universal agreement that the Orioles have one glaring weakness that will eventually be their undoing - either at crunch time in September or early in the postseason. They lack that one go-to starting pitcher at the head of the rotation who can tip the balance in a one-game playoff or a best-of-whatever series. They don't have a Justin Verlander or a CC Sabathia or a Clayton Kershaw to strike real fear into a quality opponent. That's the rumor, and it certainly has a ring of truth after all the years the O's tried to pass off Jeremy Guthrie as the staff ace and hoped against hope that one of their bright young prospects would finally morph into the next Jim Palmer.

On my first night in Baltimore in 1981, in keeping with my adventurous and highly sophisticated palate, I took my wife out for pizza. We were at this place in Towson and I was reaching for a slice of pepperoni with my fat little fingers when there was a rustle at the next table. I glanced over and my eyes nearly popped out of my head. There was the great Johnny Unitas having dinner with his family, helping one of his kids cut his food. "It's Johnny Unitas!" I whispered to my wife.

When the Orioles promoted Manny Machado last August to play third base, they felt the 20-year-old's impact immediately. His defense solidified one of the club's weaknesses, and the stability he provided at the position was instrumental in the Orioles' first playoff appearance since 1997. But this year, in Machado's first full season in the major leagues, the 2010 first-round pick has taken his game to another level, his name spoken in the same breath as past baseball wunderkinds Ty Cobb, Al Kaline and Mickey Mantle.

Nationally, the highest-rated shows among young adults in April and May were “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS, “Modern Family” on ABC and “The Voice” on NBC. But in Baltimore, those viewers preferred a different show: Baltimore Orioles telecasts on MASN. When Jim Palmer and Gary Thorne can trump Blake Shelton and Sofia Vergara, maybe there really is “Orioles magic.” Since the Orioles started playing never-say-die comeback baseball the second half of last season, TV viewing has spiked.
