ARLINGTON, Texas - The Rangers have had success against left-hander Joe Saunders -- the Orioles' starter in tonight's AL wild-card game -- but Texas manager Ron Washington said Saunders is a much different pitcher that he one his team saw often in the AL West when he pitched with the Angels. “From what I understand and what I've been reading in the reports, he's not the guy I remember reading about when he was in Anaheim,” Washington said. “So I think we're just going to have to wait and see. We know he's going to use his off-speed.

Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz played the past eight seasons with the Texas Rangers, hitting the first 157 home runs of his career. When his free-agent market seemed to be crashing this winter, it was rumored that Cruz would simply return to Arlington, Texas, where he has batted .294 (26 points higher than his .268 career average) and blasted 92 home runs in 400 career games. Instead, the Orioles jumped in and grabbed Cruz on a one-year, $8 million deal and brought him to another place that has seen its share of home runs over the years: Camden Yards.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Chris Davis has admitted that coming to Baltimore - and leaving a Texas Rangers team which he grew up loving and struggled to live up to expectations with - was an important part in his development into one of the best players in baseball this season. But Davis entered Saturday 1-for-17 with 11 strikeouts and just one RBI in five games against his former team this season. Since coming to the Orioles in a trade from the Rangers on July 30, 2011, Davis is 4-for-38 with one homer, one RBI and 23 strikeouts against Texas (including last year's wild-card game)

Even though the trade was made only a week ago, the Brewers had Zack Greinke T-shirts available for holiday sales. They sold more than 1,500 new season tickets last week — showing that owner Mark Attanasio and GM Doug Melvin correctly read the appetite of their fan base. … The Rangers' signing of Arthur Rhodes was a blow to Dusty Baker , who got 69 appearances out of him, his most since 2001. The Reds had $4 million budgeted for Rhodes and could use that to sign Scott Podsednik , who would share left field with Jonny Gomes . … Rhodes joins Darren Oliver to give the Rangers two left-handed relievers who should be better than the top lefty in many bullpens.

ARLINGTON, Tex. — It took seven games for Giants manager Bruce Bochy to get the left side of his infield right in the playoffs. He tried three combinations at shortstop and third base, mixing and matching with the likes of Pablo Sandoval and Mike Fontenot . But before Game 3 of the NLCS, he installed Edgar Renteria at short and Juan Uribe at third. Bochy rode that combination the rest of the way and wound up with a World Series championship, with Renteria an unlikely MVP. "Edgar's been through it," Bochy said.

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Cowboys will remain sports kings of the Metroplex. But by changing their culture and mindset, the Rangers have seized the success that eluded them for years as they tried to outslug their opponents. "It's not like we've taken over (from the Cowboys)," said outfielder David Murphy, whose Rangers will try to complete a three-game sweep of the Rays in this best-of-five American League Division Series that resumes Saturday at Rangers Ballpark.

NEW ORLEANS - One of the most vivid images that Orioles bullpen coach Elrod Hendricks carries of Miguel Tejada from last season doesn't involve any of the shortstop's home runs or plays in the field. Hendricks is more impressed by how Tejada reacted when he failed. "He's a take-charge guy, even when he's going bad," Hendricks said by telephone. "If he didn't get a hit, he didn't go to the dugout and slam his bat. He went right back to rooting for the next guy to get a hit. I liked that.

There are few times when a visiting player comes to Camden Yards and puts on such a spectacular show that he turns the fans in his favor. But Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton, the 1999 No. 1 overall pick who overcame the depths of drug and alcohol abuse to become one of the game's top sluggers, orchestrated one of the most magnificent power displays in baseball history in the Rangers' 10-3 win over the Orioles on Tuesday night. He gained a share of fans along the way. When Hamilton rounded the bases in the eighth inning -- becoming the 16th player in major league history to hit four home runs in one game -- those who remained of the announced 11,263 on hand at Oriole Park offered their appreciation by giving Hamilton a standing ovation.

Manny Machado's whirlwind week continued Wednesday, when he flew to Baltimore a day before his team physical, which will take place today and Friday. He'll then head back to Florida to sign his contract Friday night or Saturday and suit up in his first Orioles minor league uniform Sunday. Machado, a Miami high school shortstop who agreed to a $5.25 million deal Monday night as the third overall pick in the 2010 draft, won't officially be introduced at Camden Yards until Sept. 3 or 4, during the Orioles-Tampa Bay Rays series.
