Pitches -- He's got some power stuff. His fastball is at 96 to 99 [mph]. He's a Chris Ray type with a real power slider and a good curve. Weaknesses -- The one thing I wonder about is that on 1-2 and 0-2 counts, he likes to come with his fastball. And I don't know why, because he has that good slider. Evidently, he has more confidence in that fastball. Future -- He is going to be a good one. He'll be up soon (he's currently at Triple-A). He could do whatever they want. He could start, and he has closer's stuff right now. Mariano [Rivera]

Dave Trembley said last weekend in Toronto that converted starter David Hernandez would be used in long-relief situations for the time being, but it took only one outing for the Orioles manager to change his mind. Trembley said after Tuesday's series-opening 3-1 loss to the New York Yankees that Hernandez, who pitched 11/3 scoreless innings in the game, would most likely be used late in games, particularly in the seventh and eighth innings. "I think he's looked a lot more comfortable than I expected he would look coming out of the bullpen this early," Trembley said when asked what changed his mind about Hernandez's role.

SOME INNING Before the bottom of the second inning had come to a merciful end, the Orioles scored eight times, collected eight hits, sent 13 batters to the plate and knocked out Yankees starter Phil Hughes. Their most productive offensive inning of the season included a sacrifice fly by Brian Roberts, an RBI double by Adam Jones, a three-run homer by Aubrey Huff and a run-scoring single by Gregg Zaun. The Orioles also scored on a throwing error by right fielder Nick Swisher and a wild pitch from Hughes.

Electronic readers don't come with traditional pages or the familiar numbering system. They show you a percentage of the book that you have read. Sometimes, while looking forward to the ending, the book just ends. Who knew that the last 23 percent would be footnotes and acknowledgments? Managerial careers can be like that too - over unexpectedly, without the ending that we wanted. The 2010 season brings with it an unusual, perhaps unprecedented, sense of foretelling. Bobby Cox and six others who have been the best managers of their generation enter what could be their farewell season.

As a pickup line, "I'm Joba Chamberlain" certainly beats "I've lost my number; can I have yours?" And, according to a young man who apparently enjoyed a fruitful summer on the Jersey Shore, the pitcher's pitch helped him hit home runs. Ryan Ward, a 29-year-old unemployed resident of Asbury Park, bears a resemblance to the New York Yankees' pitcher. So he started telling people that's who he was. To hear him tell it - to the New York Post, no less - it was great to be young and a pretend Yankee, especially when it came to women.

Do NASCAR collectibles qualify as legal tender? Or, in this case, illegal tender? A Pennsylvania man jailed on a charge of selling painkillers allegedly wanted a witness against him rubbed out. After finding his "hit man," however, he was planning to pay him off in bobbleheads. Allen Bridges of Everett was asking around the Bedford County Jail, searching for someone to kill for him, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. "I want him fed to the pigs," said Bridges, apparently a Hannibal Lecter fan. But Bridges seems to have blabbed too much, and another inmate tipped law enforcement officials, who then set up a state policeman to pretend he was interested in murder for hire.

AL EAST Yankees Starting point: 103-59, 1st (beat Twins in first round, Angels in ALCS and Phillies in World Series). Project manager: Brian Cashman. General contractor: Joe Girardi. Bones: The free agent spending binge of 2009 contributed to the Yankees winning their first championship since 2000, but the team wasn't as deep as its record suggests. Girardi used only three starting pitchers in the playoffs. New materials: CF/leadoff Curtis Granderson, RHP Javier Vazquez, DH-1B Nick Johnson, OF Randy Winn, OF Marcus Thames, LHP Boone Logan.

THREE'S COMPANY In his first 86 appearances, Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie had never given up three home runs in a game. On Wednesday, he did it in one inning against three straight batters. Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano and Melky Cabrera hit back-to-back-to-back homers off Guthrie in the second inning, all three landing in the right-field seats. It was the 11th time in Yankees history that they had three consecutive batters hit home runs, and the first time since June 2005. MARKAKIS SCUFFLING Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts on Wednesday, the 10th time in his career he has struck out three times in the same game.
