Buck Showalter just wanted to know one thing from Ron Johnson and Mike Griffin. How did they steer the Triple-A Norfolk Tides to a winning record when Showalter spent the whole season stealing their players? “My gosh, I never heard a complaint,” Showalter said, gushing over Johnson, the Norfolk manager, and Griffin, the team's pitching coach. “It was just, 'What do you need? What does the club need?'” Johnson and Griffin were unsung heroes of the Orioles' improbable season, handling a dizzying array of call-ups and send-downs as the major league club coped with injuries and the struggles of young pitchers.

DETROIT - Orioles bench coach John Russell is expected to be interviewed for the Minnesota Twins' managerial position. Russell, who has been the Orioles' bench coach since 2011, has previous managing experience. He managed the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2008 to 2010, compiling a 186-299 record over those three seasons. All of manager Buck Showalter's coaches, including Russell, are currently under contract for next season, so the Orioles would need to give permission to interview Russell.

Sometimes it's easier to put these things into a question-and-answer format, and since I've gotten a bunch of questions from readers about what's next for the Orioles and their pitching coach situation, that's what we'll do. If you want to take a look at potential candidates, check out this piece that ran Friday morning. What type/style of pitching coach will the Orioles seek? My sense is they are looking for experience. Manager Buck Showalter has a rather experienced staff, and I think he'll add to that with someone who has already done the job in the majors.

Every morning, just after 7 o'clock, Orioles pitcher Jake Arrieta leaves his temporary home in Siesta Key and bikes the nine miles to Ed Smith Stadium. "It's a nice little stroll, but it's a fun ride," Arrieta said. "It's not because I want a workout. It's kind of my routine. I really want to keep that throughout the season. I rode my bike to the field in Baltimore all last year when I was there. I'm on the bike everyday in the offseason so I figure, 'Hey, let's try to keep the routine as close to what it is in your day-to-day life.' That's what I'm doing.

Mike Griffin and Keith Winder possess two distinct playing styles on Edgewood's basketball team, but they strive to keep everything about their relationship equal. And appropriately, that includes being team captains, as the ninth-ranked Rams are likely to go as far as their standout guards can take them."Our team is unique in that we don't hold a player vote to pick team captains," Edgewood coach Bob Slagle said. "It's a natural evolution. It's assumed that the seniors who have established their leadership will have that role, and Mike and Keith have done that."
