Faced with Friday's early afternoon playoff game, school officials and business owners in the Baltimore area are preparing for a day of empty classrooms and vacant work spaces. Sort of. "I don't know how big the number is, but there will definitely be some kids out," predicted Gilman School Headmaster Henry Smyth, himself an Orioles fan with tickets for Friday's game who faced the quandary of what to do. He and his two boys will not be going to the game, Smyth said. But he understands if some parents decide to make baseball the priority.

The hit that broke open the National League Wild Card Game on Wednesday night revealed an almost unbelievable baseball postseason statistic. Brandon Crawford's fourth-inning grand slam for the San Francisco Giants was the first four-run homer hit by a shorstop in the postseason. Ever. Crawford -- the 24-year-old infielder who has hit 26 home runs in 511 regular season games -- has more postseason grand slams than one guy who most Orioles fans love (Cal Ripken Jr.) and another they begrudgingly grew to respect over a frustrating 20 years (Derek Jeter)

John Burkett, San Francisco Giants: "I've heard so much about it that my expectations were high, and it's great it lived up to my expectations. I saw it on TV, but it's so much better in person. It's a new park that's designed to be old, but look new. What else could you want?

The Orioles claimed lefthanded pitcher Brian Burres off waivers today from the San Francisco Giants. Burres, 24, went 9-6 with a 4.20 ERA in 26 games for Double-A Norwich in 2005.

The Orioles officially announced the one-year signing of 25-year-old outfielder Francisco Peguero on Saturday morning. Peguero hit .200 in 45 at-bats with the San Francisco Giants in the past two seasons, but is a .306 career hitter in the minors and had been considered one of the Giants better prospects over the years. He has been a center fielder but can play left or right and should be in the mix for a roster spot this spring. Here's executive vice president Dan Duquette on Peguero: “I like this kid we signed, Peguero.

Monday night's five-home-run outburst temporarily silenced concerns about the Orioles' offense, and gave the team 168 home runs on the season, 18 more than the next-closest team in the majors. But if the Orioles are to bring the first World Series title to Baltimore since 1983, they will have to buck a recent trend of the best slugging-teams in the league not making the World Series.  The Orioles are searching to become the first team since the 2009 New York Yankees to lead the league in home runs and go on to win the World Series, showing that teams with multiple ways to push runs across ultimately have a better chance to advance in the playoffs.

The Orioles are close to signing outfielder Francisco Peguero, according to an industry source. A deal is not complete and there are several teams interested in the 25-year-old, the source said Tuesday afternoon. Peguero, who was designated for assignment by the San Francisco Giants last week and non-tendered on Monday, spent most of the past season at Triple-A Fresno, hitting .316/.354/.408 in 70 games and playing at all three outfield positions. He missed 12 games after a concussion in June.

The Orioles have made another roster move, acquiring 27-year-old catcher Johnny Monell from the San Francisco Giants in a trade for cash considerations Saturday. Monell, 27, was designated for assignment by the Giants last week after playing in eight big league games in 2013. He was 1-for-8 with one RBI and two runs scored for the Giants last September. A former 30th-round pick in 2007 out of Seminole Community College (Fla.), Monell hit .275 with a .364 on-base percentage and 20 homers in 121 games for the Giants' Triple-A team in Fresno in 2013.

In talking to Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette on Thursday, I asked whether he had made any progress on the club's pending free agents,a group that includes pitchers Scott Feldman and Jason Hammel, infielder Brian Roberts and outfielder Nate McLouth. “No," Duquette answered. "We haven't had any discussions on those.” I'm sure some of you will find that alarming. I don't. First, Duquette's juggling other responsibilities, including the pitching coach search. Secondly, this is typical of Octobers.

The Orioles had plenty of opportunities to make left-hander Wei-Yin Chen's rocky sixth inning not matter Saturday afternoon against the San Francisco Giants. While Chen held up his end for five innings - holding the defending World Champion Giants scoreless and limiting them to one hit - the one-run lead his teammates gave him wasn't enough. And with regular-season games beginning to dwindle and the Orioles paying attention to the standings more closely, they realize they can't waste quality pitching performances.

The beauty of baseball is that even fat guys can play it, and play it well. It's the most democratic of sports. You can be chunky, you can be roly-poly, you can be out and out blubbery and still find a place in this game. I should know. I played it for years. But if you need further proof, I give you Pablo Sandoval. The Kung Fu Panda sure lit it up last night in the San Francisco Giants' 8-3 win over the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the World Series. Sandoval became only the third player in history -- the others are Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson and Albert Pujols -- to smack three home runs in a World Series.
