Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost, who was Orioles designated hitter Nelson Cruz's first manager with the Milwaukee Brewers, said the slugger has surpassed even Yost's high expectations for him since their time together in 2005. “I loved Nelson Cruz when he was there,” Yost said. “Nelly was right on the verge of becoming a special player at that time -- still struggling to make contact, but when he did make contact, it was loud contact. But you could tell down the road that he was going to be a big-time power hitter.” The Brewers, who Yost managed from 2003 to 2008, acquired Cruz from the Oakland Athletics in December 2004.

MILWAUKEE -- One night after breaking the Orioles' spirit with his bat, Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo shut them down the conventional way. Gallardo lasted 6 2/3 solid innings Wednesday in the Brewers' 8-3 victory in the series' rubber match at Miller Park. “A lot of people may not be familiar with him, [but] he is one of the best pitchers in the National League,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said about Gallardo, who allowed three runs, four hits and five walks Wednesday.

MILWAUKEE -- The Orioles and the Milwaukee Brewers may not play against each other often, but they sure do make it entertaining. After the Orioles pulled off a dramatic, extra-inning victory Monday afternoon, the two were back at it Tuesday night. This time, the Brewers won, 7-6, in 10 innings on a pinch-hit, RBI double by the next day's starting pitcher. His game-winning hit followed an intentional walk to former Orioles infielder Mark Reynolds with no one on base and two outs.

MILWAUKEE -- The great thing about baseball is how we can take one moment in a 3-hour, 44-minute game and blow it up. Such is the case from the Orioles' 7-6 loss Tuesday night to the Milwaukee Brewers after manager Buck Showalter decided to intentionally walk Mark Reynolds with nobody on base and two outs in a 6-6 game. We'll get to that in just a second, but I quickly want to look at another move by Showalter that is being second-guessed -- taking hot-hitting Nelson Cruz out of the game (and left field)

The Orioles are in continuing negotiations with free-agent right-hander Bronson Arroyo, according to an industry source. They are not the only serious suitor, however, as the sweepstakes for Arroyo appears to be nearing a close. The 36-year-old, who was 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA in 32 starts with the Cincinnati Reds last year, is one of several high-profile starters still available on the market. It was believed that Arroyo, who turns 37 later this month, was seeking a three-year deal, but he seems to have softened that stance.

Reynolds, a former Oriole, will get a $2 million salary with an additional $500,000 available in performance bonuses if he makes the Brewers' roster. "I talked with Mark, and he's not afraid to have to beat out somebody for a job," general manager Doug Melvin told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Jim Johnson is not in an Orioles uniform anymore because, as executive vice president Dan Duquette explains it, the club needed to better allocate its financial resources throughout the 25-man roster. In other words, paying roughly one-tenth of the expected payroll for a closer - a position that can be exceptionally volatile - didn't make sense when the Orioles have other holes to fill and can use the money saved to do that. Rational concept, but there's a Catch-22 here: The sense is the Orioles may have to go out of the organization for its next closer because there is a concern that they can't fill it internally.
