Though he moved to Florida at the age of 12, Janzen has stayed in touch with his beloved Birds. His attachment has even grown stronger the past couple of years through friendships with pitcher Mark Williamson and former Orioles reliever Gregg Olson.

Smith did not play much, but Pagliarulo quickly moved into a regular role at third base and made enough of a contribution to get strong consideration for a new contract."This was a procedural thing," said general manager Roland Hemond.
