WASHINGTON - When the Orioles were discussing trades last month with various teams, they fielded requests targeting their top four pitching prospects: right-handers Kevin Gausman, Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey and left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez, who they ultimately dealt Thursday to the Boston Red Sox for reliever Andrew Miller. But there was another wave of inquiries this summer, too. According to multiple sources, teams asked about the availability of several Orioles position prospects, including Triple-A Norfolk outfielder Dariel Alvarez and first baseman Christian Walker, Double-A Bowie outfielder Mike Yastrzemski and Low-A Delmarva catcher Chance Sisco.

  The Orioles have signed left-handed pitcher Joe Saunders to a minor league deal and the Virginia native will report to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.   Although he has never relieved in his 229-game, big league career, the Orioles are, at least initially, planning to put him the bullpen at Norfolk to see if he can adapt into that role.     Saunders, 33, spent two months with the Orioles in 2012, starting and winning the club's first playoff game in 15 years. Saunders allowed just one run in 5 2/3 innings against the defending American League champion Texas Rangers in Arlington as the Orioles won the first one-game Wild Card playoff in AL history.

As legend has it, Groucho Marx sent the Friars Club a telegram that read, "Please accept my resignation. I don't care to belong to any club that will have me as a member. " At least the Friars Club had standards. What to make of the United Nations? It has a single criterion for membership: existence. Admittedly, this is an unattainable standard for such fictional realms as Westeros, Erewhon, Kreplakistan and numerous locales from the TV series "MacGyver" (Gnubia, Kabulstan et al.)

Many believed NFL commissioner Roger Goodell came down soft on Rice, relating it to drug suspensions of other players, and also called into question the league's women's health initiatives that it pushes each October. Here's a small representation of what they're saying about Ray Rice's two-game suspension: ESPN W's Jane McManus believes it's indicative of a problem with domestic violence in the league . And now ... two games?
