Catcher Wade Wass, the Orioles' 13th round pick out of Meridian Junior College, has told the Orioles he will be going to the University of Alabama instead of signing with the club. Wass and Ryan Ripken, the Orioles' 20th round pick out of Gilman and the son of Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr., are the only two draftees who have told the club so far that they are definitely eschewing pro ball for school. Ripken has a baseball scholarship to South Carolina. The Orioles are not planning on signing any more non-drafted free agents from the 2012 class, scouting director Gary Rajsich said.

We are here early this morning, and waiting for the Adam Jones press conference at 11: 30 a.m. The players will be busy with Little League today before the game. And it is going to be a hot one today. But I'm at least here to give you the Orioles lineup this afternoon against the Royals. Matt Wieters was getting the day off - protocol for day game after a night game. But that has changed. Here it is: Avery 7, Hardy 6, Markakis 9, Jones 8, Davis 3, Wieters 2, Davis 3, Betemit 5, Johnson dh, Andino 4. Matusz 1.

We're waiting a few more minutes to go down to the clubhouse - game time is slightly later, 7:10 p.m., than we are used to in Baltimore - so here are the lineups. Orioles: Roberts 4, Hardy 6, Jones 8, Wieters 2, Reynolds 3, Pearce 9, Tolleson 7, Andino 5, Hunter 1. Mets: Nieuwenhuis 8, Valdespin 7, Wright 5, Duda 9, Davis 3, Murphy 4, Quintanilla 6, Thole 2. Santana 1. By the way, we hope to hear more on Nolan Reimold today - and no one is expecting good news.

The Orioles weren't without chances to get after Tommy Miloneand the Oakland A's bullpen on Friday night, but they fell victim to a familiar adversary - the double play ball. Orioles hitters grounded into four double plays and squandered all sorts of opportunities to put left-hander Joe Saunders in a position to continue his great record of success against the A's. Give some credit to Milone for being a wily guy who can move the ball around the strike zone, but double plays have plagued the O's all year.

Catcher Luis Exposito, claimed off waivers from the Red Sox two weeks ago, is down on the field at Fenway Park in an Orioles uniform. That leads me to believe that the Orioles have made a yet-to-be-announced roster move bringing up Exposito, who is on the club's 40-man roster, to the big league club from Triple-A Norfolk. We're waiting to see what the corresponding move is. It's still unknown whether outfielder Nolan Reimold will be available for this series. He went back to Baltimore to receive treatment for neck problems and hoped to return for this season.

Right-hander Jason Berken is back with the Orioles, called up today when Robert Andino was placed on the paternity list. Berken, who had a hamstring injury that limited him for much of spring training, had a 0.60 ERA in 15 innings during three starts at Triple-A Norfolk. “It's good, I am excited. I suppose I pitched pretty well in Triple-A, and I am excited about doing the same here,” Berken said. “It's great to be back. I'm just excited to see all the guys. That's the big thing, I miss the teammates.

The focus is going to be on Brian Matusz, who allowed a career-high 13 hits on Tuesday and lost his fourth consecutive decision. But the microscope has to be on the Orioles' offense. For the ninth time in their last 10 games they have scored three runs or fewer. In that span, they have scored just 20 runs on 55 hits, including a terrible 14 for extra bases, and they're 5-for-52 with runners in scoring position. That's a .096 average, folks. “We keep getting ourselves into position, we just need to hit,” says center fielder Adam Jones.

Make it entertaining this year. Like many fans, I find myself optimistic for the first time in many seasons. Maybe it was the hearty start in spring training. Maybe it was getting Vladimir Guerrero. But that might be a set up for disappointment. I don't mean to be discouraging; it's just that they've let us down before. Every Little Leaguer has been told at one point or another that winning isn't everything. Remember that going into this season. I don't care whether the team makes it to the pennant or if every game is a shutout.

What a thrill to watch the Orioles play these two divisional series games, each with late endings due to rain delays, and to still find coverage and photos in The Sun at 7 a.m. next morning, delivered to our front door! Having the pictures of action, players and fans, as well as reporters' perspectives to describe all that went on is priceless. I've bought extra newspapers and mailed them to relatives who are Orioles fans in Texas, Virginia and Florida. What collectors items! And I've bought them for my 5-year-old grandchildren, who devour the photographs, posters and Orioles advertisements and hang them in their rooms.
