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.

The Orioles' first postseason in 15 years paid the team $2,124,312.75 in postseason shares. For advancing to the American League Division Series, each player who received a full playoff share earned $34,825.61. The Orioles issued 54 full shares, third most of any postseason club (the Yankees issued 58 and the Cardinals 56), and also issued 5.85 partial shares and 25 cash awards. By comparison, Giants player shares were worth $377,002.64 for winning the World Series.  The postseason share pool is formed from 50 percent of gate receipts from the Wild Card game, and 60 percent of the gate receipts from the ALDS, American League Championship Series and World Series.

In an article in today's Baltimore Sun, "Starting to look like his old self" (May 13), we read that Oriole pitcher Brad Bergesen was sent down to the Triple-A team in Norfolk April 19th. "In three starts since returning to the Orioles rotation, Bergesen is 3-0 with a 2.33 ERA and has allowed 18 hits and walked four in 19-1/3 innings. Bergesen (3-2) has lowered his ERA from 12.19 to 5.76 since returning." Perhaps the Orioles would be a better team if they sent all of their pitchers to Norfolk for a few days.

Like many fans quoted in "Sorry season hasn't stopped Orioles fans" (June 20) I too find myself with a renewed interest in the team this year. It has been several years since I gave up my season tickets. Although I haven't attended a game this season, I have been tuning into the broadcasts with greater frequency. Perhaps as suggested by Michael Brody, others are doing so to "establish a link to something more than themselves." In my case, I believe it's more out of morbid curiosity.

When a major league baseball team loses 98 times in one season, finishes 39 games out of first place and secures its 12th consecutive campaign under .500, a roster overhaul for the next year is not just possible. It's expected. But not this spring, not with these Orioles. The seismic personnel shift occurred in 2009, when the Orioles used 48 players, including 23 who made their club debut. This offseason, they added first baseman Garrett Atkins, third baseman Miguel Tejada and starting pitcher Kevin Millwood to a crowded lineup and rotation.

What did you expect after such an uplifting 2012 season? The Orioles clubhouse is full of players who think that they can go even farther into October this year if they can stay reasonably healthy for the duration. “I do," said catcher Matt Wieters. “One, we're getting a healthy Nick [Markakis] back and a healthy Nolan [Reimold] back. We're comfortable with all the guys we have in this clubhouse and just what we did last year and improving on it. The good thing is we do have a lot of guys back from last year and now if everybody takes a step forward, we're right where we want to be.” The big question, after a year that produced some highly unusual statistics - 29-9 in one-run games, 16 consecutive extra-inning victories - is whether that winning chemistry will carry over into 2013.

The Orioles look to halt their six-game losing streak in today's 4:05 p.m. game against the Rays at Tropicana Field. Baltimore had lost six straight for the first time since Aug. 16-21, 2011. The Orioles are struggling in both facets of the game. The starting rotation has pitched to a 8.06 ERA over their last five starts (26 R, 23 ER, 25 2/3 IP), while the offense has scored just 14 runs over the sis-game losing streak. They are hitting .233 in that span and don't have an extra-base hit in the last two games.

A few years ago while working outside Washington, I was attempting to tune in an Orioles' afternoon game on my car radio. This was an FM frequency, the flagship station. Imagine my frustration at not being able to receive the broadcast, a mere 40 miles outside Baltimore. I was elated to hear the news yesterday that Orioles baseball broadcasts are coming back to WBAL-AM in Baltimore ( "Orioles headed back to WBAL after four seasons at 105.7 FM," Feb. 8). It's where the Os belong, having listened to hundreds of games from what will be the flagship station once again.

To make room for Luis Ayala on the Orioles' 40-man roster, the club designated outfielder Matt Angle for assignment. The speedy 26-year-old outfielder, a seventh-round pick in 2007 out of Ohio State, hit .177 for the Orioles in 31 games. His lone big league homer came against AL Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander to lead off the Sept. 24 game in Detroit. He hit .271 in 108 games for Triple-A Norfolk last season before joining the Orioles. Angle becomes another recent Orioles draftee to be jettisoned this offseason, joining outfielder Kyle Hudson and Brandon Snyder -- all picks under former amateur scouting director Joe Jordan.
