You know you've been covering the Orioles beat a long time when right-hander A.J. Burnett is 37 and a free agent again. News out of Pittsburgh on Tuesday was that Burnett, a Monkton resident, wants to pitch again in 2014 and that he is willing to open his market and not just limit himself to the Pittsburgh Pirates, for whom he has pitched the past two seasons. That's good news for the Orioles, who need a veteran starter, want one on a short deal and can offer Burnett a home stadium that's a short drive down Interstate 83. It's also bad news.

It was another chance to win a series, and another opportunity lost as the Orioles' 6-4 defeat to the Boston Red Sox tonight featured the kind of play that has been mostly absent under the Buck Showalter regime. There was first baseman Ty Wigginton's error that contributed to the five-run second inning by the Red Sox off Brad Bergesen. There was the infield's failure to turn a double play in the eighth on Mike Lowell's groundball, leading to an important Red Sox insurance run a half inning after the Orioles scored four times to get back in the game.

The Twins continue to explore trade options to replace injured closer Joe Nathan . If the price for available arms such as Heath Bell and Jason Frasor remains too high for their taste, the options include moving Francisco Liriano (above) from the rotation and counting on prospect Anthony Slama , who has been pitching great. Jon Rauch and Matt Guerrier are also candidates. Pat Neshek is not an option as his velocity hasn't returned. … Tyler Flowers' unimpressive spring showing makes it more likely the White Sox will look to extend catcher A.J. Pierzynski's contract during the season.

It is looking more and more like Mark DeRosa will need a second wrist surgery, which probably would end his season. He's in the first year of a two-year, $12 million deal with the Giants, who remain a hitter or two short. … Mike Lowell (above) remains a possibility for the Rangers. Rookie first baseman Justin Smoak, a switch hitter, has been terrible against left-handers, and Lowell's playing time has been limited by David Ortiz in Boston. … The Brewers might have to release Trevor Hoffman, although they continue to try to find him a role in the bullpen.

Representatives of Ripken Baseball are heading to China next week for the second time in six months to continue building a baseball foundation in the world's most populated country. In November 2007, a baseball diplomacy envoy sponsored by the U.S. State Department and led by Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. visited China and conducted clinics for players and coaches in Beijing, Shanghai, Wuxi and Guangzhou. Next week, a group of four Ripken Baseball instructors, including former Orioles infielder and Cal's younger brother, Bill, will conduct clinics in Wuxi, a city 80 miles west of Shanghai, from April 29 to May 5. The State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs is funding the trip.

Zack Greinke , who has two years left on his deal with the Royals, is talking like he's getting the itch to move to a contender. He's unlikely to ask for a trade, but the Royals could decide to deal him at some point after this season, as did the Padres for Jake Peavy last year and the Astros for Roy Oswalt last week. … Indians catching phenom Carlos Santana is out for the season after tearing up his left knee in a collision with the Red Sox's Ryan Kalish on Monday night.

Joe Crede is just about ready to go after his latest back procedure. Agent Scott Boras says there's a chance Crede could help a team this season, but it's more likely he will look to sign in the offseason with an eye on 2011. … Adam Dunn is looking for a deal of at least four years for $60 million after having to settle for a two-year deal with the Nationals in his first run at free agency. The Nats want to keep him, but not at that price. It's likely he will be traded, with the Yankees, Angels and White Sox at the head of the list.

DENVER -- They started this season as a World Series favorite, a team with a $143 million payroll, a rabid fan base and a roster brimming with highly-paid, veteran talent. Last night, before an energetic but ultimately crestfallen crowd at Coors Field, the Boston Red Sox made good on all of that promise with a 4-3 victory against the Colorado Rockies in Game 4 to complete a World Series sweep and secure the franchise's second title in four seasons. After blowing a 2-2 fastball past Colorado pinch hitter Seth Smith for the Series-ending strikeout, Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon threw his glove high into the Denver sky and then leapt into the bear hug of Red Sox catcher and captain Jason Varitek.
