The longest tenured Oriole left for pinstripes. Veteran second baseman Brian Roberts, who has played his entire 13-year career with the Orioles and has been the face of the franchise through many of those seasons, has agreed to a one-year deal worth $2 million plus incentives with the rival New York Yankees, according to an industry source. The 36-year-old Roberts, who completed a four-year, $40-million deal this past season, didn't return multiple calls Tuesday, but in September, he told The Baltimore Sun that he wanted to end his career with the Orioles.

The Orioles ushered in another new era Monday afternoon, introducing their 17th full-time manager -- and third skipper this season -- in baseball lifer Buck Showalter, who took both a humorous and a realistic approach to the challenges he and the declining franchise face in the basement of the ultracompetitive American League East. "They talk about the three leagues: the American League, the National League and the American League East," Showalter said. "But I don't think they handicap games.

For the past several weeks, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette turned to the Kansas City Royals in an attempt to acquire outfielder David Lough from the club's logjam of outfielders. It was one of many trade possibilities Duquette pursued in addressing the lack of a left-handed outfield bat created by the departure of left fielder Nate McLouth. And interestingly enough, the Orioles' selection in last week's Rule 5 draft paved the way for a trade, and on Wednesday, the Orioles acquired the 27-year-old Lough in exchange for infielder-designated hitter Danny Valencia.

The excitement that filled Camden Yards this weekend for the Orioles' three-game series against the Nationals didn't go unnoticed by Orioles players. They didn't see the crowded Oriole Park concourse full of orange and red - mostly orange - or get a good look at the rows of standing-room fans in the flag court and behind the bullpens. But the Orioles could definitely feel it. “I'm not going to jinx neither of us, but this was like a playoff atmosphere, every game,” Orioles center fielder Adam Jones said.

Late Monday night the Orioles traded former All-Star closer Jim Johnson to the Oakland Athletics for second baseman Jemile Weeks and a minor league player to be named later. Johnson, who saved 101 games for the Orioles in the past two seasons, was set to make more than $10 million in arbitration in 2014. Instead of paying that much for a closer - and one who had led the majors with nine blown saves last season - the club picked up a young infielder and another minor leaguer and will be able to use the money allocated for Johnson in other ways.

Addressing a longtime need in the organization, the Orioles selected Florida high school shortstop Manny Machado with the third overall pick in Monday night's first round of the 2010 amateur draft. Machado, who hit .639 with 12 homers and 68 RBIs in 29 games for Brito Miami Private, was considered the top prep position player in the draft. "If Machado stays at shortstop, you have a potential All-Star offensively who is no worse than average with the glove," said Keith Law, a writer for ESPN.

Former Orioles top pick Matt Hobgood, who has battled ineffectiveness and injury in his brief pro career, will have right rotator-cuff surgery April 2 and is expected to miss all of the 2012 season. The 21-year-old Hobgood, whom the Orioles selected in the first round (fifth overall) in 2009, was shut down earlier this month with shoulder discomfort, something that previously has hampered him in his career. He was examined by Dr. Craig Morgan earlier this week and surgery to repair the shoulder was recommended, according to John Stockstill, the Orioles' director of player development.

The Orioles released a statement Wednesday afternoon with principal owner Peter G. Angelos' comments about best-selling author Tom Clancy, a minority owner for the team who died Tuesday at age 66 . The statement reads: For decades, Tom Clancy entertained millions with his novels and enjoyed producing no fewer than seventeen best-sellers. He was an extraordinary storyteller who had an ability to keep readers on the edge of their seats. His passion for the military was evident in his efforts to ensure that the men and women who serve our country were properly recognized for their service and commitment.
