Terry Crowley is entering his 21st season as a hitting coach, including two stints with the Orioles, but many fans remember him as one of baseball's best pinch hitters during his playing days. Who gave you the nickname King of Swing? -- That came from the back of the bus one day from Ken Singleton. He was singing a song and trying to find words that rhymed. He was rhyming the whole deal. And he said something like, "Weaver said to Crowley, get up and do your thing. You are the King of Swing."

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters, mired in a 1-for-30 slump, is out of Friday night's starting lineup because of a tight right biceps. "We want to make sure we can get that full go," Wieters said. "We think if we get a day off today and we'll be good to go tomorrow. We don't want a one-day tightness to turn into something more. " Wieters said he began feeling tightness in his arm going into his first at-bat Thursday and it grew worse throughout the game, especially on the tail end of his left-handed swings.

I t's impossible to make sense of the things we will never understand, so let's just remember Mike Flanagan for all the things he did during a very eventful life and a very impressive athletic career that played out on several stages. Flanny, as pretty much everyone called him, played college basketball alongside Julius Erving and pitched for the Orioles in the days when they still smelled of champagne. He went on to become a respected major league pitching coach and a pretty good broadcaster before rising to become the executive vice president of the team that inducted him into its Hall of Fame in 1994.

The unassuming King moves purposefully, head down, and quietly through the maze of first-floor arteries at Camden Yards. Terry Crowley has an appointment in the hitting tunnel with a future Hall of Famer. Time waits for no man, not even the King, and not even if the subject is timing.Known during his 15-year playing career as the King of Swing for his uncanny ability as a left-handed pinch hitter, Crowley now oversees Orioles hitters. During a protracted surge, they have reached second in the league in home runs, fourth in batting and fifth in runs despite a painfully sluggish April.

Orioles hitting coach Terry Crowley can't believe it has been 30 years. He was a 26-year-old platoon outfielder when manager Earl Weaver inserted him into the 1973 Opening Day lineup as something called a designated hitter. The DH rule will celebrate its 30th anniversary today, probably with just a few close friends and relatively little fanfare. The decision by baseball owners to take the pitcher out of American League batting orders was controversial from the start, but Crowley didn't mind it a bit. "I loved it," he said.

When Adam Jones was asked recently about the differences between new hitting coach Jim Presley and his former one, Terry Crowley, the Orioles center fielder inadvertently threw a jab cushioned by the highest form of flattery. "Presley is Crow," Jones quipped. "He's just 30 years younger. " To be fair, Crowley, 64, is only 15 years older than Presley. The important part of Jones' declaration, however, is the apparently seamless transition from one of the most tenured coaches in club history to a man with a wealth of experience but a fairly low profile.

The Orioles are discussing a multi-faceted position with Terry Crowley, an arrangement that will end his long career as the team's hitting coach but keep him in a prominent teaching role in the organization. The details have not been finalized, according to multiple sources, and the Orioles haven't completely closed the door on Crowley returning for his 13th straight season as the team's hitting coach and his 17th overall on the staff. However, Orioles manager Buck Showalter and president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail have had extensive discussions with Crowley recently about a different position, one where the 63-year-old wouldn't travel regularly with the team and be in the dugout during games.

— Orioles Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer has never been shy in sharing his opinion, whether it was as a player or now as a broadcaster. So it probably comes as no surprise that Palmer had no problem with outfielder Nick Markakis' comments in Friday's editions of The Baltimore Sun that questioned the offensive approach of his teammates. "I'm sure he's frustrated," Palmer said Friday before the Orioles' series opener with the San Diego Padres at Petco Park. "I'm sure he said that to his guys.

- For the first time this spring, Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail acknowledged that the club is concerned that second baseman Brian Roberts might not be ready for the start of the season. Roberts, who has a herniated disk in his back and then got sick as a result of the medication he was taking to ease the inflammation, hasn't played in a game all spring, and now he has been shut down until at least Thursday. "I talked to Richie Bancells, our head athletic trainer, about it again today, and at this time he still thinks Brian is going to be ready for Opening Day, but you have to be concerned now," MacPhail said.

The news that the Orioles and Miguel Tejada had agreed to terms on a one-year, $6 million deal was well received by several players and coaches at Saturday's FanFest. Starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie "As a player, I love watching him. I love the passion he plays with and the excitement. His desire to be on the field is commendable. He's going to be a great addition for any team and if we're fortunate enough to finalize the deal, I think we're a better team because of it."
