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 ushered in another new era Monday afternoon, introducing their 17th full-time manager -- and third skipper this season -- in baseball lifer Buck Showalter, who took both a humorous and a realistic approach to the challenges he and the declining franchise face in the basement of the ultracompetitive American League East. "They talk about the three leagues: the American League, the National League and the American League East," Showalter said. "But I don't think they handicap games.

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.

HAVANA -- So much for subtle political overtones.The Orioles had hoped to cast yesterday's historic exhibition game against members of the Cuban national team as a nonpolitical, people-to-people event, but the high-profile presence of Cuban President Fidel Castro at Latin American Stadium nearly overshadowed the baseball dimension of the goodwill trip.The Orioles worked overtime to score an 11-inning, 3-2 victory before a crowd of more than 50,000, but some of the most interesting action -- or interaction -- took place about 50 feet behind home plate, where Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos, baseball Commissioner Bud Selig and Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke sat with Castro throughout the four-hour game.

Less than 14 hours after beating the Red Sox in 13 innings last night, the Orioles return to Fenway Park to face the Red Sox for an afternoon matinee. Jason Hammel, who has gone at least six innings in four of his five starts this season, will start for the Orioles. That should help an Orioles bullpen that threw eight shutout innings. Five different relievers threw on Friday, including three who threw multiple innings. “They were all pretty short last night,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of the bullpen.
