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.

The Orioles have added to their infield depth, acquiring 28-year-old third baseman Danny Valencia from the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday for cash considerations. Valencia led all third basemen in games in 2011, when he played in 154 and hit .246 with 15 homers for the Minnesota Twins. He was third in the American League Rookie of the Year voting that year. But Valencia really struggled last season, batting just .198 in 34 games with the Twins. He was demoted to Triple-A and eventually was dealt to the Red Sox in August.
