Chris Tillman's groundbreaking moment came and went without much fanfare Tuesday. The Orioles right-hander pitched seven innings in a 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays and, in doing so, surpassed 200 innings pitched for the season - a milestone only four other Orioles have reached in the past 12 years. But because the loss ended the Orioles' playoff hopes, Tillman said it was difficult to celebrate his benchmark year. "It's tough," Tillman said. "[Two hundred innings] is more of a personal thing, and this is a big team thing," he said.

One night after rejuvenating a skeptical but eager fan base with an exhilarating victory against the bullies of the American League East, the Orioles took on the New York Yankees again at a rocking Camden Yards on Friday night. This time, there were no lasting moments of comeuppance, just a pedestrian 8-5 loss to the Yankees complete with an early deficit that was too deep to overcome for an Orioles club that specializes in rallies. What separates Friday's defeat from those in past years, of course, are the stakes: The win snapped a first place tie in the division, pushing the Yankees (78-60)

One thing lost in the Orioles' victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night was a bit of club infamy made by first baseman Nick Johnson. Johnson, a career .270 hitter entering this season, went hitless in three at-bats Thursday. That put him 0-for-26 for the season and gave him the club's all-time hitless record for a position player to begin an Orioles career. The previous record was 0-for-25, set by infielder Ron Hansen from 1958 to 1960. The all-time Orioles record is pitcher Wes Stock, who never got a hit in his Orioles career, which spanned 36 at-bats from 1959 to 1964.

A few Thursday morning thoughts from the Orioles beat: -- The outcome of Orioles pitcher Brad Bergesen's arbitration hearing will be made public today. Bergesen, who made $434,000 last season, filed for $1.2 million while the Orioles countered with $800,000 It's the first time the Orioles have gone to arbitration since 2006 with pitcher Rodrigo Lopez. Given that Bergesen went 2-7 with a 5.70 ERA in 34 appearances (12 starts) and has an unclear role going into spring training because of the surplus of rotation candidates, the fact that he filed for a 57 percent raise is interesting.

Orioles right-hander Brad Bergesen lost his arbitration bid Thursday, giving the team its seventh consecutive victory in the process. Bergesen, 26, filed for $1.2 million after a season in which he was 2-7 with a 5.70 ERA in 34 games, including 12 starts. The Orioles countered with $800,000, and since the sides could not find middle ground, they went before a three-person arbitration panel Wednesday in St. Petersburg, Fla. The panel chose the Orioles' figure - which is still a considerable increase for Bergesen, who made $434,000 in 2011.

Right-hander Brad Bergesen's arbitration hearing was scheduled for this morning at 9:30. He was looking for $1.2 million, the Oriolescountered with $800,000. I have received no information otherwise -- and I've checked -- so it's assumed the private hearing commenced today. They usually run for several hours, and the three-member panel usually doesn't offer its opinion until the following day. This is the first time the Orioles have gone to a hearing with a player since 2006 with pitcher Rodrigo Lopez.

So the Prince Fielder truck rolled along I-95 without ever stopping on the interstate. Well, that doesn't mean the Orioles can't get on the Scott Boras Free Agent Bandwagon before spring training starts. Right-hander Edwin Jackson, the pitcher with the highest upside remaining on the market, is still available. And so is DH/outfielder Johnny Damon, and some other Boras' clients. Jackson is the prize here. And the Orioles would love to have him. In fact, I've been told the club would consider a four-year deal for Jackson (something the Orioles and/or EVP Dan Duquette wouldn't usually do for free agent pitchers)

The Orioles did not settle with four of their arbitration-eligible players heading into today's deadline for exchanging figures Now the Orioles and the players will exchange salary numbers and - if they don't settle - an arbiter will choose one figure or the other during a February hearing. They can continue to negotiate up until that hearing. The players heading toward arbitration are pitchers Brad Bergesen and Jeremy Guthrie, outfielder Adam Jones and infielder Robert Andino.

The next Orioles deadline of note is Tuesday at noon, when the club officially exchanges figures with its arbitration eligible players. They had seven arbitration-eligible players for whom they offered contracts - and five remain unsigned. The Orioles agreed to a $1.35 million deal with reliever Darren O'Day, whom the Orioles claimed off waivers from the Texas Rangers this offseason. O'Day received a $100,000 bump. The club also settled with lefty Dana Eveland, acquired in December from the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Four years ago, he was a waiver claim, a guy with an intriguing arm and an impressive pedigree whom the Orioles had to take a chance on given their lack of pitching depth. On Friday night, the pitcher whom the Cleveland Indians discarded in January 2007 will toe the rubber at Tropicana Field in his third Opening Day start for the Orioles in the past four seasons. With that outing against the Tampa Bay Rays, right-hander Jeremy Guthrie ties Steve Barber and Rodrigo Lopez for fourth-most Opening Day starts in modern Orioles history.
