Just when everyone was starting to feel all warm and fuzzy about the opening of the regular season, reality crept into the visiting clubhouse at Tropicana Field late Friday afternoon. Left-hander Brian Matusz, who is widely regarded as the cornerstone of the club's pitching future, walked disconsolately to his locker and put his street clothes back on. Instead of getting ready to chart pitches in advance of Saturday night's scheduled start against the Tampa Bay Rays, he was getting ready to undergo an MRI to determine the cause of soreness beneath his left shoulder blade.

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.

More than two years after Miguel Tejada was traded to the Houston Astros for five players to start a massive rebuilding project, he will return to the Orioles with a lot less fanfare and at a different position. In a somewhat surprising move that goes against several of Andy MacPhail's tendencies, the Orioles agreed to terms Saturday on a one-year, $6 million deal with Tejada to be the team's regular third baseman, a role that he's never filled in his 13-year big league career. The deal won't be complete until Tejada passes a physical, which is scheduled for Tuesday.

Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz will make his fourth spring start today against the Phillies at Ed Smith Stadium, going against Phillies ace Roy Halladay. It's also a big day here at Ed Smith because Nick Markakis, who has spent the entire spring recovering from offseason abdominal surgery, will make his first start in right field today. He's made three starts at DH, going 2-for-8. Kevin Gregg, Jim Johnson, Willie Eyre, Zach Phillips and Pedro Strop are also slated to pitch today for the Orioles.

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.

His manager, Earl Weaver , called him "the best leadoff man in the game," and who's to argue? In five years with the Orioles, Don Buford batted .270, ran the bases with ferocity and helped the club reach three World Series. It's no coincidence that, one year after Buford crashed the lineup, the Orioles won 101 games and the first of three straight American League pennants (1969-1971). Twice, he hit .300 or better in the postseason. In 1969, Buford made history as the first player ever to lead off a World Series with a home run, connecting off the New York Mets' Tom Seaver.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Largely overshadowed by the more publicized installation of general manager Frank Wren and his front office entourage, John Angelos has graduated to Orioles executive vice president, making him the club's third-ranking official behind his father, majority owner and chairman Peter Angelos, and chief operating officer Joe Foss.The move places John Angelos in charge of day-to-day administrative operations, a role formerly held exclusively by Foss.In turn, Foss will be freed to assume a more strategic role, handling the team's dealings with Major League Baseball, its protracted search for a new spring training site and the owner's downtown hotel project.
