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.

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.

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.

Second baseman Brian Roberts' wife, Diana, gave birth to the couple's first child Friday, a son named Jax Isaac, who weighed six pounds, seven ounces. “Everything seems to be going well,” Showalter said. “He was up for most of the night.” Roberts was still on paternity leave for Saturday night's game against the Seattle Mariners, with Alexi Casilla - who is starting his first game since July 8 - taking his place in the field. Showalter said Roberts could return for Sunday's season finale, but he wasn't sure yet. The current plan is for Roberts to return to the Orioles on Monday and fly with the team to San Diego.

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.
