ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.  - While growing up in San Diego, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones idolized Tony Gwynn as a player, then later gained greater admiration for him after getting to know the Padres Hall of Famer as a person. So the news of Gwynn's death Monday at age 54, after a four-year battle with cancer, hit Jones especially hard. "I've known the man for most of my adult life, so it's tough when someone passes like that, especially the impact he'd had on not just myself, but on countless major leaguers, and just people in general, in the San Diego community," Jones said.

The White Sox cross their fingers that this is the year Jake Peavy will pay dividends. But Clayton Richard and the Padres play on house money. Peavy prompted the Padres to trade him because he didn't think he could get back to the playoffs with them. Low payrolls in the wake of owner John Moores' divorce and the sale of the team to a group led by agent Jeff Moorad left the 2007 Cy Young Award winner thinking it was time for a change. Yet the Padres rode a surprisingly strong pitching staff to 90 victories in 2010, their most since going to the 1998 World Series.

Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn always will be linked by a splendid Sunday in July 2007, when baseball fans massed to celebrate all that was still good in the game. The pair went into the Hall of Fame together - Gwynn, the voluble hitting wizard, and Ripken, the indestructible shortstop. They seemed to admire each other as much as the crowd appreciated them both. So Ripken reacted with sadness Monday when news emerged that Gwynn had died at age 54 after an extended battle with cancer . “This is an extraordinarily sad day,” Ripken said in a statement.

If you've watched Orioles right-hander Freddy Garcia through the last few years, you know he doesn't have a lot of margin for error. He's around the plate a lot - and he doesn't throw hard. So when he gets hit, he really can get hit. The San Diego Padres, who cut Garcia this spring, really hit him Wednesday . In the first inning, Garcia did what he's made a career out of doing: getting out of jams. He had runners at first and second and one out and he induced an inning-ending double play.

Former Orioles president Larry Lucchino said yesterday he has put his bid to buy one major-league team on hold in order to see if he can close a deal for another.Officials of the city of Pittsburgh announced yesterday they will negotiate solely with cable television executive John Rigas on the purchase of the Pirates, after Lucchino and the city said they had mutually decided to end talks about the possible sale of the club.Lucchino said he took that step because he and Houston businessman John Moores are in the final stages of a bid to buy the San Diego Padres.

Former Orioles president Larry Lucchino, now the chief executive officer of the Padres, asked for and received ZTC permission to talk to Orioles assistant general manager Frank Robinson last spring about working in San Diego.Offered some sort of assistantship to Lucchino, Robinson decided at that time to stay with the Orioles, but he also left open the possibility that he would talk to the Padres again this fall. Now that San Diego general manager Randy Smith has resigned, it stands to reason Robinson could be among the candidates to replace Smith, or assume some role in the power vacuum that exists there at the moment.

The Orioles granted Mark Smith his wish to be traded yesterday by sending him to the San Diego Padres for Single-A catcher Leroy McKinnis.Smith, the Orioles' first-round pick in 1991, was taken off the team's 40-man roster this winter and did not appear to have a future with the organization. Smith has starred at the Triple-A level but hit just .233 with seven homers in his career with the Orioles. In 1996, Smith batted .244 with four homers in 27 games before missing the second half of the season with a bruised left shin.

New Orioles catcher Nick Hundley arrived at Camden Yards on Sunday morning, happy to be a part of a contending club. Hundley, who was acquired from the San Diego Padres on Saturday in exchange for left-handed reliever Troy Patton , will play an important role with his new team. Starting catcher Matt Wieters remains on the disabled list with a right elbow strain, and his status for the rest of the season is still uncertain. "I didn't know where I was going, but if there was one place I wanted to be, it was here," Hundley said.

The Orioles have acquired veteran catcher Nick Hundley from the San Diego Padres, along with cash, in exchange for left-handed reliever Troy Patton, the club announced before Saturday's game.

Hundley, 30, was hitting .271 with one homer and three RBIs in 33 games with San Diego this season.

Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez admits he hasn't felt like himself lately, and his past two outings show that. Gonzalez, who will start today's afternoon series finale against the Padres in San Diego, is coming off the worst back-to-back outings of his major league career. Over his past two starts, he has allowed 15 runs (10 earned) in 8 1/3 innings.  Before those outings, he had thrown eight straight quality starts. “I just have to be myself,” Gonzalez said. “I think that's the most important thing.

SAN DIEGO - With one swing, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis erased the disappointment of his previous three at-bats Wednesday at Petco Park. Davis had already struck out twice and stranded four baserunners - including three in scoring position - when he stepped to the plate in the eighth inning of a tie game against the San Diego Padres. Wasting no time, he blasted left-handed reliever Colt Hynes' first pitch deep into the right-center field seats. The three-run homer started a string of seven unanswered runs for the Orioles in a 10-3 win before an announced 21,206.

Orioles right-hander Freddy Garcia's formula for success lies in staying ahead of hitters and keeping them off balance by mixing speeds while locating his pitches. Without the blazing fastball that has faded by way of wear, the 14-year veteran must now pitch with finesse instead of flash. And when the 36-year-old Garcia's pitches start to gravitate up and toward the middle of the plate, it can lead to a short day. That was the case Wednesday afternoon, when Garcia failed to get out of the fourth inning against the San Diego Padres - the team that cut him late in spring training - sending the Orioles on the path to an 8-4 interleague loss in front of an announced of 32,418 at Camden Yards.

San Diego--It is a community of rolling hills and emerald beaches . . . an area so livable that the 2.6 million residents of San Diego and its suburbs are willing to brave the Big One rather than move to a less desirable location.So, why won't they put up with the Padres?The struggling franchise should have the same kind of provincial appeal as the Orioles, but a variety of factors have conspired to sap the club of its financial resources and push it into the bargain basement of professional sports.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Reports continue to filter from the West Coast that Fred McGriff will be traded to the highest bidder before the month is over. And if the Orioles are willing to part with left-hander Arthur Rhodes, they probably could put together an acceptable package for the San Diego Padres first baseman."

Buck Showalter's first glimpse of closer Jim Johnson inside the Orioles clubhouse moments after his remarkable consecutive-save streak came to an sudden end Tuesday night was the sight of Johnson working up a sweat on the exercise bike in the training room. “He's grinding out on a bicycle,” the Orioles manager said, “Getting ready for [Wednesday].” Johnson's franchise-record streak of 35 consecutive converted regular-season save opportunities was snapped Tuesday night as the San Diego Padres rallied for two runs in the ninth off Johnson for a 3-2 win over the Orioles in front of an announced 19,096 at Camden Yards.
