They are the two hitters most likely to lift a struggling offense out of its malaise, to carry the Orioles for stretches when little else is going right and to help the team overcome other shortcomings. Brian Roberts can do it with his bat and his legs, and Miguel Tejada can do it by rediscovering his power stroke that has been missing for much of the season.

It's one of those baseball statistics that's hard to believe. I checked it a couple times to make sure I hadn't missed anyone. And I really believe I haven't. According to baseball-reference.com, there are 44 active major league pitchers who have at least 80 career wins - a modest accomplishment, but impressive considering all who have played the game. Of that group of 44, none has played for the Orioles. Think about that for a moment. I'm not talking about none of the 44 plays for the Orioles right now. I am talking about ever.

ARLINGTON, TEXAS -- It's never easy predicting which Daniel Cabrera the Orioles are going to get - the wild one who can't throw strikes consistently or the dominating one who commands his pitches and often looks unhittable. Trying to pitch the Orioles to a series win last night and continue his late-season momentum, Cabrera didn't keep his teammates in suspense for long. He gave up a home run to the first batter he faced, walked the next two and then surrendered an RBI double. He never found his command, pitching five spotty innings in the Orioles' 7-5 loss to the Texas Rangers before 21,446 at Ameriquest Field.

Good morning and welcome to the non-waiver trade deadline day. Hope you brought your party hats. And nimble fingers for your refresh button. I've checked around and nothing seems to have changed early this morning (although there were several trades in baseball overnight). Let's recap quickly. The Orioles and Phillies have been talking about a deal that would send right-handed starter Joe Blanton to the Orioles for a minor leaguer - and not one of major circumstance.

With roughly two hours to go to until the non-waiver trade deadline, the on-again, off-again talks with the Philadelphia Phillies about right-hander Joe Blanton seem on again. The Orioles were adamant that they didn't want to pick up the remainder of Blanton's $8.5 million contract, which is roughly $3 million. But it looks like they are willing to pick up some of the contract, according to an industry source. The Orioles would likely have to deal at least one player to the Phillies and take on some of the money owed, since the Phillies are seeking salary relief.

Walk this way The Orioles used three relievers but couldn't get out of the eighth with the game tied. Yuniesky Betancourt led off with a double off Danys Baez. Jamie Walker then came in and, after retiring Ichiro Suzuki on a flyball that sent Betancourt to third, intentionally walked Jose Vidro. Chad Bradford hit Jose Guillen to load the bases. He got a second out as Kevin Millar fielded Raul Ibanez's ground ball and threw out Betancourt at home. But Bradford walked Adrian Beltre to plate the winning run. Cabrera knocked around It's hard to be too critical of Daniel Cabrera, who stepped up to make the start on three days' rest when interim manager Dave Trembley pushed Erik Bedard back to tomorrow as a result of a stiff neck.

Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard asked for $18 million in salary arbitration yesterday, the third-highest figure submitted since the process began in 1974. Philadelphia offered $14 million to the 2006 National League Most Valuable Player, a raise of $4 million. Howard hit 48 homers and had 146 RBIs last year, helping the Phillies win their first World Series title since 1980. Houston Astros pitcher Roger Clemens set the record for highest request in arbitration at $22 million in 2005.

No one really anticipated in April, with the trade deadline looming in late July, that the Orioles would be looking to buy and the Philadelphia Phillies looking to sell. That's the way it appears to be right now. The Orioles and Phillies have already made one trade this summer, with the Orioles acquiring designated hitter Jim Thome for two minor leaguers. The clubs are talking again with Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline approaching, and there are several players that could fit the Orioles' top needs of a starting pitcher and a corner infielder/outfielder that can get on base: starter Joe Blanton and a trio of outfielders, Juan Pierre, Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence.

The Orioles are deep into negotiations with the Philadelphia Phillies about acquiring right-hander Joe Blanton, but the amount of money the Orioles would have to pick up could be a sticking point in reaching an agreement before Tuesday's 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline. They likely could acquire the 31-year-old Blanton for a mid-level minor leaguer, but the Phillies also want to shed what remains on Blanton's $8.5 million contract -- which is approximately $3 million. And, according to an industry source, the Orioles appear hesitant to absorb that figure for a pitcher who is considered a mid-to-late-rotation innings eater.
