The Cincinnati Reds claimed former Orioles outfielder Jeff Fiorentino off waivers. The Orioles designated Fiorentino for assignment this week to make room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Chris Roberson, who was acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies for cash considerations. Fiorentino, drafted in the third round in 2004, batted .282 with 15 homers and 65 RBIs at Double-A Bowie last season. He hit .253 with one homer in 32 games with the Orioles during the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- In the past few days, it became more likely that right-hander A.J. Burnett was not going to sign with the Orioles, and Wednesday brought official word that the 37-year-old was heading elsewhere when he agreed to terms on a one-year, $16 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies. Now that Burnett and right-hander Bronson Arroyo -- who signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks last week -- have both went elsewhere, two of the club's top offseason targets are off the board, and the Orioles' search to improve their rotation through free agency hasn't led to any additions.

It was the spring of Gavin Floyd's senior year, and professional baseball scouts were flocking to his games at Mount St. Joseph High School. A right-handed pitcher with a blazing fastball and knee-buckling curve, Floyd was considered one of the top prep pitchers in the country and perhaps the closest to being major league-ready in 2001. "Pitching that year was really fun," reflects Floyd, now 30, a dozen years after drawing national attention. "I remember the visuals. It was a long time ago. " Born in Annapolis, Floyd grew up in the Chartwell neighborhood of Severna Park and honed his skills with the Green Hornets at Kinder Park and in youth leagues in Gambrills, according to his mother, Elaine Floyd.

How badly is Cliff Lee's head spinning? Lee leads the Phillies to the World Series, delivering one of the best postseason runs by a starter since a third round was added, and only a little more than a month later he is traded for the second time this year. The first trade was in July, only about eight months after he had won the American League Cy Young Award. Now that he has gone from the Indians to the Phillies to the Mariners in four of the craziest months imaginable, he must be ready to settle down, right?

PHILADELPHIA - -Over three days at Citizens Bank Park, Orioles manager Dave Trembley listened to loud cheers and resounding boos directed at the Philadelphia Phillies, who just eight months ago captured a World Series championship. When pinch hitter John Mayberry's bid to tie the game off George Sherrill died in front of the left-field warning track to secure the Orioles' 2-1 victory Sunday, Trembley heard something else from an announced 45,256 - stunned silence. "It was real quiet here after the final out," Trembley said, a wide smile stretching across his face.

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia Phillies slugger Ryan Howard offered a warning to the Tampa Bay Rays earlier in the day that his bat was warming up. Joe Blanton, however, kept his emerging power stroke a secret before last night's World Series Game 4. Using two homers by Howard, the National League's most prodigious basher, one by Blanton, the starting pitcher who had never gone deep in his big league career, and one by former Orioles farmhand Jayson Werth,...

GLEN ROCK, PA. - When Bob Bogart married in 1989, his streak was in its infancy, about 500 games. His new bride couldn't have known it would keep going, that it would last 19 more years and counting, that it would be acknowledged by his heroes. Still, Lauri Bogart said she wasn't blindsided. "It's pretty obvious when you are around him," she said. "You know there is something else on his mind all the time, even in the offseason. "And all these people keep giving him attention for being nuts.

You've heard of banjo hitters. Well, for a day, the Philadelphia Phillies' Shane Victorino was a ukulele slugger. Victorino, nicknamed the Flyin' Hawaiian, hit a walk-off home run to beat the San Francisco Giants, 9-8, on Sunday, which also happened to be his own dashboard figurine day. You have to hand it to Victorino. On a day when the Phillies participated in a campy promotion that included playing Don Ho's "Tiny Bubbles" when the right fielder batted and hula dancers swaying on the dugout, the guy managed to bring some dignity to the whole episode.

The Philadelphia Phillies are playing for the National League pennant even though in the opening playoff series, they really didn't do what they're supposed to do best - hit. They dispatched the Milwaukee Brewers in four games, scoring just under four runs a game, more than a full run below their season average. And their two most dangerous hitters, Ryan Howard and Chase Utley, went a combined 4-for-26 with three RBIs. So, for starters, is it likely that Howard and Utley will stay this quiet?

It's hard to imagine this fall being better scripted for TV executives and Major League Baseball. Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Boston are all involved as baseball kicks off its postseason with three games today. New York teams failed to join the high-powered mix, but it was the Milwaukee Brewers, a pretty good story and baseball commissioner Bud Selig's hometown club, that ruined things for the Mets last weekend. So MLB can't be too upset with that. Besides, there are plenty of story lines worth following.
