Orioles radio broadcaster Fred Manfra, who underwent hip replacement surgery in April, has targeted July 1 as his return date, broadcast partner Joe Angel said during today's game against the Tampa Bay Rays on WBAL Radio (1090 AM). In early June, Manfra told The Baltimore Sun's Peter Schmuck that he would be out several more weeks after undergoing a second procedure May 19 to correct a displaced surgical pin in his femur. “Everything's going well," Manfra told Schmuck.

Maybe this is one of those gift horse situations that you shouldn't analyze too closely, but it's hard not to notice that the Orioles are in one of the most productive offensive slumps ever. Their 1-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday is just their latest high-wire act in the grueling 2 1/2-week stretch against the top teams in the American League West that ended with yet another important series victory against another tough playoff contender. The lovely totals, as broadcaster Joe Angel likes to call them, clearly don't tell the whole story, but no one is going to turn a nose up at 10 wins in 16 games at a time when the Orioles needed to solidify their hold on first place in the AL East.

Joe Angel, the radio voice for the Orioles for the past six seasons, confirmed Sunday that he will return to that role for the 2010 campaign. Fred Manfra is also expected to be back as Angel's partner, though the Orioles have yet to make an official announcement. "This is where I want to be," Angel said in a telephone interview. "I've left Baltimore twice and come back twice, so this obviously is where I want to be. I'm ready to go." During the past month, Angel was under consideration for a similar role with the Los Angeles Angels, who are searching for a replacement for the late Rory Markas.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- With six starters in the rotation, as well as Thursday's scheduled day off, right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez was able to have an extra work day before his next start Friday against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Jimenez has struggled to maintain consistency this season, going 2-8 with a 4.86 ERA in 14 starts, but he has pitched better with extra time between starts. In two starts with six days' rest this year, Jimenez has a 2.13 ERA, compared to a 5.40 ERA in his other 12 starts.

Orioles radio broadcaster Fred Manfra, who underwent hip replacement surgery in April, will be out several more weeks after undergoing a second procedure May 19 to correct a displaced surgical pin in his femur. “Everything's going well," Manfra said in a telephone interview Monday. “A pin slipped, and I had a second surgery two weeks ago. Hopefully, this one will take.” Manfra, who teams with Joe Angel on the WBAL radio broadcasts, is still using a walker to get around and said he hopes to be back at work toward the end of this month.

"I was driving to Joe Robbie Stadium in a heavy downpour," Joe Angel was saying. "It was coming down like you wouldn't believe. A typical Florida downpour. Dark, windy, gloomy. I've got the radio on. The press conference is going on out there."All of a sudden, I hear O. J. described as a double-murder suspect. They're saying that he's on the run, that's he's a fugitive. They're saying, 'We will get him.' As soon as they said those words, it hit home."It was unbelievable. You're hoping he's innocent.

Orioles radio broadcasts will remain on WBAL-AM 1090 for at least the next two seasons. The club and the station have finalized a multiyear deal for WBAL to remain the Orioles' radio affiliate, according to an industry source. It is believed to be a two-year pact. Joe Angel and Fred Manfra, who have called Orioles radio broadcasts together since 2004, will also return, the source added. A previous three-year deal with WBAL expired at the end of this season. Specifics of the deal are not known, but it is structured as a revenue-sharing partnership between the two sides.  The Orioles don't plan to make a formal announcement on the new deal.

It's late at night, and Jon Miller is on the radio from the West Coast. You're stiff, sore and increasingly frustrated while trying to piece together some furniture using instructions written in Swedish. But then Miller goes into his Vin Scully, and you can laugh again.Does Miller get a little more off-the-wall when he broadcasts Baltimore Orioles games from the Pacific time zone? Not only did he go into his Scully earlier this week, but he Scullied something about Moliere and Paris and what did they know about sliders during the 17th century in France?

It came as surprising and welcome news that Joe Angel is returning to WBAL Radio's Baltimore Orioles broadcasts.In just three seasons, Angel became quite popular and was the best fit of any radio partner Jon Miller has had in nine seasons. WBAL had talked about hiring a seasoned professional to replace Ken Levine, who has joined Jack Wiers in the one-year-and-out Orioles announcers club.Another name connected to the Orioles job was Ernie Harwell, about as seasoned and professional as one could want.
