I promised not to write about Prince Fielder until the super-sized slugger signs somewhere. Well, I am writing about Fielder and he hasn't signed yet. Hey, it's not like I took a vow in church or anything. Besides, it's you people that have done this to me. You are the ones that have flooded my email box and Twitter account with questions about Fielder now that a few national writers have mentioned that the Orioles are interested in him. So here's what I gleaned after talking to some people Monday: The Orioles are more interested in signing Fielder than they were, say, three weeks ago. And the reason is because it's three weeks later than it was three weeks ago. The club's stance on Fielder hasn't changed.

TORONTO -- As his chase of the Orioles' single-season home run mark intensified, it seemed like first baseman Chris Davis' bigger focus was doing his best to deflect the attention away from himself and toward his club's chase of a playoff berth. And when Davis swatted his 50th homer of the season - tying Brady Anderson's franchise record set in 1996 - the historic blast came at a perfect time, breaking a late-inning tie in sending the Orioles to a much-needed 5-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays before an announced 20,024 Friday night at Rogers Centre.

They were Harry Stuhldreher, Jim Crowley, Don Miller and Elmer Layden, but you probably know them as Notre Dame's Four Horsemen of the 1920s. "Outlined against a blue-gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again," Grantland Rice wrote after a 13-7 upset of Army. "In dramatic lore they are known as famine, pestilence, destruction and death. Those are only aliases." We bring you a baseball version of these literary horsemen of the Apocalypse. They are Albert Pujols, Joe Mauer, Prince Fielder and Adrian Gonzalez.

Saturday was Dan Duquette's official welcome to Baltimore baseball fans. Amid the hoopla and carnival atmosphere that filled the Baltimore Convention Center for the team's annual FanFest event, it was the executive vice president of baseball operation's introduction to Orioles fans. Orange balloons were everywhere. Fans brought backpacks of memorabilia, posters, bats and jerseys for their favorite players to sign. Approximately 9,000 fans — about 1,000 fewer than last year — braved the aftereffects of the season's first snowstorm to attend the team's official season-kickoff event.

John Kruk, who will be part of ESPN's broadcast of the Home Run Derby, says Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is the favorite “without question” to win the event at Citi Field on Monday night. “When you watch his home runs, he doesn't swing hard,” Kruk, a former big league first baseman said during a conference call Wednesday. “As the later rounds come on if he keeps advancing, to me, he's going to be fresher than anyone else in this thing. To me, he's the leader in the clubhouse right now to win it, even though Prince did win it last year.” Fellow ESPN analyst Nomar Garciaparra said he expects the competition to come down to Davis and Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder.

Four Orioles players are still in line to start for the American League in this year's All-Star Game at Citi Field in New York, but one race is getting extremely close, according to the latest AL all-star fan balloting results released Saturday night.

After losses to Toronto and Washington, the rookie entered Sunday's matchup with Detroit - the best hitting team in the majors - with an 11.00 ERA. But before the matchup with the Tigers - a 4-2 Orioles win - Gausman spent more time in the video room with catcher Chris Snyder looking over the Tigers' lineup from top...

DETROIT - Orioles first baseman Mark Reynolds offered no apologies after getting ejected from Friday night's 5-3 loss to the Tigers at Comerica Park, only a frustrated sermon on how he believed two controversial calls forced the O's to battle two difficult foes   - the Tigers and the umpires. Prince Fielder provided the offense for the Tigers, hitting a pair of two-run homers, but Reynolds had bigger issue with the performance of the umpiring crew. Reynolds and manager Buck Showalter were both ejected in the fifth inning after a close call at first base was overturned by home plate umpire Tim Timmons.

Even if Ian Kennedy regresses, the Diamondbacks' rotation will be solid. The Central is wide open. You can make a case for the Cardinals, Brewers and Reds. I'll take the Brewers. Ryan Braun doesn't need Prince Fielder to put up big numbers and Yovani Gallardo is my Cy Young pick. The Cardinals will edge the Reds for one of the wild cards.

Pujols in short term Dave van Dyck Chicago Tribune Are we talking long- or short-term? For the next three years, Pujols will mean more to the Angels than Fielder will to the Tigers. After that, the roles reverse, only because of Pujols' age (no matter which age you believe). What makes Pujols so valuable are the things he does past the obvious. Yes, he hits home runs at key moments, hits for average and plays a decent first base (better than Fielder)

The Orioles, who can officially avoid the 100-loss plateau with one win in Monday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, haven't made a big splash in free agency in recent years -- unless you count overpaying for Zombie Vladimir Guerrero or inking the immortal Garrett Atkins -- but Jon Heyman says this winter could be different. Heyman, who is a national baseball writer for Sports Illustrated , believes the Orioles are the favorites to sign Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder , who said last week that this is likely his last season in Milwaukee . “They've used power-hitting but strikeout-prone Mark Reynolds and Chris Davis at first base since trading Derrek Lee, but it isn't certain how sold they are on either one,” Heyman speculated.

The champagne corks can be popped now throughout baseball. Popped in the Motor City and by national baseball writers who have been held hostage by Prince Fielder Talk, Day 112. Fielder has reportedly signed with the Detroit Tigers for nine years and $214 million, according to various outlets, including Yahoo Sports and CBS Sports. That's roughly $23.8 million per season. Let's recap. I was told yesterday that a seven-year, $140 million deal -- what the Orioles offered Mark Teixeira a couple of offseasons ago -- would be out of the Orioles' comfort zone for Fielder.

Orioles fans received a free-agent acquisition -- albeit not the one they were likely waiting for -- on Monday evening. The Orioles agreed to terms with 30-year-old utility man Wilson Betemit on a two-year deal (with an option for a third year), pending a physical, The Sun first reported Monday. While the acquisition of Betemit isn't the flashiest, and it's obviously not Prince Fielder, it fills several key needs for the Orioles. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Betemit, a native of the Dominican Republic, is a generally underrated player, even though he's never been an everyday guy and hasn't played in more than 97 games since 2007.
