Right-hander Hunter Harvey garners most of the attention when the pitching staff at Low-A Delmarva is discussed, but three left-handers in the six-man starting rotation are doing their part to ensure the Shorebirds continue to compete in the South Atlantic League. Mitch Horacek, Steven Brault, and Luis Gonzalez are among the system's best pitchers halfway through the minor league season, with each ranking among the league leaders for starting pitchers. Horacek, unfortunately both for him and the timing of this piece, turned in his worst outing of the season Wednesday night when he allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings.

MIAMI - Arizona Diamondbacks manager Bob Brenly still shakes his head when he thinks about the time earlier this season when he decided to give star outfielder Luis Gonzalez a day off. It wasn't an easy decision. Gonzalez is having the best all-around season of any player in baseball. The Triple Crown is not out of the question. If you're the manager - particularly the manager of a contending team in a close division race - you want that kind of guy in the starting lineup every day, every at-bat, every inning.

    In Chris Davis' breakout season last year, he hit 33 homers and drove in 85 runs.     With a two-run homer in the first inning Saturday against Andy Pettitte, the Orioles first baseman now has 33 homers and 85 RBIs - and it is July 6. So Davis has statistically already matched his great 2012 before this year's All Star Break   Call this his shattering season.     Davis' 33 homers in 87 games before the break is the most anyone has had post-break since San Francisco's Barry Bonds and Arizona's Luis Gonzalez in 2001.

On the Orioles' free-agent targets Mark Mulder should be the Orioles' No. 1 signing this offseason. ... If the Orioles can sign a starting pitcher immediately in the offseason, their chances of making a trade for a hitter increase. If we take the big names out, then I would like [the] suggestion of Luis Gonzalez in left field for a year. Oakland and St. Louis have already expressed interest in Mulder, so scratch him off the list. Look for Gil Meche or Vicente Padilla.

The Orioles' monthlong quest to acquire a starting left fielder apparently has come to an end. According to an industry source, the Orioles have reached an oral agreement on a two-year deal with Oakland Athletics free agent Jay Payton, who will become the team's only right-handed-hitting outfielder. Executive vice president Mike Flanagan and vice president Jim Duquette acknowledged last night that the club has had significant conversations with Payton's agent, Craig Landis, though they wouldn't confirm that an agreement had been reached.

PHOENIX - The defending world champion Arizona Diamondbacks enter the postseason with the two most dominant starting pitchers in the National League, yet they appear to have little margin for error in October. The St. Louis Cardinals have only one starting pitcher with an impressive won-lost record, but they have a balanced, explosive offensive lineup that just might be good enough to carry them all the way to the world title. The New York Yankees appear to have it all, which should be no surprise considering the size of their payroll, but that is no guarantee they'll cruise past the energetic Anaheim Angels in the American League Division Series or fly over the division winner they would play in the second round if they are fortunate enough to get that far. That's the beauty of the three-tiered playoff format.

It was the type of spring to make volatile New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner pound his fist on the desk and virulent Yankee haters dream of an end to seven years of American League domination. The Yankees, quite literally, were hamstrung by a leg injury to Bernie Williams and sideswiped by the sore rib cage of $10 million free-agent acquisition Rondell White. Starting pitcher Andy Pettitte and several other pitchers were behind schedule. Off-season centerpiece Jason Giambi was hitting under .200 with a week to go in the exhibition season and temporarily hobbled by a calf cramp.
