Orioles right-hander Bud Norris celebrated one of his eight strikeouts in Monday night's win over Anaheim with particular vigor. Norris faced the best player in baseball, Mike Trout, with the bases loaded and two outs, and when Trout watched a 95-mph heater apparently grab the outside corner for strike three, Norris strutted back to the dugout and, well, showed him where that kind of heat came from .

OK, I really don't know whether Adam Jones and Mike Trout would actually vote for each other if it came down to one or the other starting in center field in the All-Star Game, and a couple of votes probably wouldn't make much difference with them locked in a tight battle to be the top vote-getter among American League outfielders. Here's what I do know: Jones is a big fan of Trout and vice versa, both making that clear while the Angels were in town this week. “He's a great guy," Trout said on Tuesday.

It looks as though 53 homers and 138 RBIs doesn't go as far as it used to these days . Orioles first baseman Chris Davis' remarkable season earned him recognition in every major offseason postseason award, but Davis netted just one trophy - a Silver Slugger award - for his effort. And in the race for the American League Most Valuable Player Award, Davis finished third behind back-to-back winner Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers and Angels outfielder Mike Trout. The MVP is one of eight annual postseason award selected by the members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Los Angeles Angels outfield phenom Mike Trout, who led the American League in stolen bases and runs scored and made several incredible defensive plays, including his signature one at the wall at Camden Yards, was named the unanimous AL Rookie of the Year by the BBWAA, it was announced Monday night. In the National League, Washington Nationals 19-year-old outfielder Bryce Harper became the second youngest to win the award, behind only the New York Mets' Dwight Gooden in 1984. He received all 28 first place votes, the eighth in the AL to win unanimously and the first since Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria in 2008.

Cabrera lifting Tigers Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune I know Mike Trout has done historic things, but unfortunately his Angels team is also history, eliminated from the wild-card race on Monday, the same day that Miguel Cabrera's Tigers clinched the AL Central title. That's a difference-maker to me in the MVP vote. I will take Cabrera over Trout because one will play in the postseason and the other will not. Trout was a better player this year, and as such is a strong candidate for the Hank Aaron Award, but the Tigers wouldn't have sniffed October without Cabrera and now they have a chance to win the World Series.

NEW YORK -- Chris Davis has been named the American League's cleanup hitter for Tuesday night's All-Star Game, manager Jim Leyland announced. The Orioles first baseman, starting in his first All-Star appearace, leads the majors with 37 homers. He typically bats fifth for the Orioles. In Tuesday's game at Citi Field, Davis will bat behind the Angels' Mike Trout, the Yankees' Robinson Cano and the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera. Leyland, the manager of the reigning AL champion Tigers, was asked if it was tough to decide on his batting order with all the sluggers voted into his lineup.

  Orioles manager Buck Showalter usually has an answer for most questions thrown his way, but he didn't have a quick response for one interesting inquiry this weekend in Anaheim. Before Saturday's game, Showalter was asked why he believed Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, the team's phenom 20-year-old third baseman, isn't mentioned in the same breath as fellow young phenoms like the Angels' Mike Trout and the Nationals' Bryce Harper. Showalter was stumped. He said he'd really have to think about it. The easy answer is that Machado didn't arrive in the big leagues until last August, and by that time, Trout and Harper had already established themselves as fixtures on contending teams.

Baseball America published the findings of its "best tools" polling Tuesday, and in a development that should suprise no one, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is lauded for having the best power in the American League. The publication polls the major league managers and reveals the top three in each league in a number of categories. Davis also showed up as the No. 3 choice for "most exciting player" in the AL behind the Angels' Mike Trout and Tigers' Miguel Cabrera. Orioles center fielder Adam Jones was voted to have the best outfield arm and he ranked second behind Trout for best defensive outfielder.

The Cardinals held it together without Albert Pujols , going 7-7 and scoring 4.3 runs per game. Tony La Russa was hoping Pujols would be added to the NL All-Star roster so he could avoid a four-day break. … Jim Leyritz , the Yankees' 1996 World Series hero who was acquitted of vehicular homicide after a drunk driving accident, is trying to get his career back on track as a coach for the independent Newark Bears.

With 19 days remaining until Manny Machado's 21st birthday, Elias Sports Bureau and its number-crunching competitors are running out of time to come up with age-20 stats for the Orioles' prodigious third baseman. Here's the latest: If Machado, who has 99 hits this season, gets his 100th tonight in Detroit, he will tie Ty Cobb (100 hits in 71 games in 1907) and Alex Rodriguez (ditto in 1996) for the third-fewest number of games to reach 100 hits in a season by a player under 21, according to Elias.

Twice in two nights, Orioles closer Jim Johnson faced off against one of the most intimidating lineups in the major leagues, and twice in two nights, Johnson notched the save. In shutting the door in the Orioles' 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday , Johnson converted his 23rd save of the year - which tied him for first in the majors with Pittsburgh's Jason Grilli and the New York Yankees' Mariano Rivera at the moment. He also extended his season-high streak of eight successful save opportunities.

Whispers Can the Angels catch the Rangers? They went 19-4 in the first 23 games outfielder Mike Trout started, including a 10-1 record in starts since he rejoined the roster in August. Trout was just named Baseball America's Minor League Player of the Year. … The Rangers went 12-11 in a stretch playing 23 games against teams with winning records. They believe that's when they would have collapsed if they were going to but aren't taking a playoff spot for granted, not with a season-ending series in Anaheim.

Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez said there really is no time when it is not on his mind - even when he is on the mound, even when he is turning in what was arguably his best performance of the year in a 3-2 victory against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. Sometime in the next week or so, the 29-year-old Gonzalez will become a father for the first time. Limiting Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton and company to four hits, one walk and one run in eight standout innings pales comparatively.

I'm a little afraid to toss this question around in the bar today. I'm afraid some of you may be throwing haymakers if the discussion gets heated. It could turn into a donnybrook or brouhaha if things get ugly. (Yes, I know it is a fake bar, there will be no physical altercations. But it allowed me to get the words donnybrook and brouhaha into a blog. I'm forever grateful for my imagination). Anyway, for Tuesday's paper I wrote a story about Orioles third baseman Manny Machado and his rapid ascension from prospect to one of the best young players in the big leagues.
