OAKLAND, Calif. -- It seemed only fitting that when Gregg Olson broke the Orioles' club record for saves, he did it the hard way."If I have to get one of these kind of saves to get records, I don't know if I want to do anymore," said Olson. Minutes before, he had retired Jose Canseco on a called third strike with a runner on first base to preserve a 7-6 win for the Orioles over the Oakland Athletics.It was the 106th career save for Olson, who knocked Tippy Martinez (105) out of the top spot.

The Orioles' new starting pitcher, Tsuyoshi Wada, likely won't make his Camden Yards debut until the first full week of April, and it won't be known for several months how well he'll make the transition from Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball to major league baseball. But the first impression of the 30-year-old, soft-tossing left-hander is that he'll work to assimilate - as evidenced by his opening statement Thursday at his introductory news conference at Camden Yards, which he delivered in English.

As expected, it's all Michael all the time around here these days. With so much bling around his neck, the Incredible Phelps looms now as the most accomplished - if not the greatest - athlete to ever come out of Maryland, and if medals are the measure, he's the greatest Olympian ever. Someday, in Baltimore, there will be a new aquatic center named for him - hopefully in the lower level of the new downtown arena - with a magnificent, life-size bronze of MP in Speedo at the entrance. We should all savor this for as long as possible.

NEW YORK -- When the Orioles signed Jamie Walker to a three-year, $12 million deal this offseason, several baseball pundits were astounded that a team would spend that much money on a left-handed relief specialist. But Walker has proved to be much more than that this season, going 1-2 with a 3.40 ERA and five saves, while being asked to fill just about every role possible. In the Orioles' 8-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, Walker made his 77th appearance. That not only leads the American League, but it also broke a franchise record previously held by B.J. Ryan (2003 and 2004)

Joe Orsulak has never been one to draw attention to himself.Many Orioles fans remember him as the workmanlike outfielder who dived after balls and the unheralded hitter who batted nearly .290 year after year, though he was often overlooked during his career.That's one of the reasons Orsulak, 36, relishes his new role as assistant coach at Loyola High School."I'm not in it for the accolades or the publicity," Orsulak said. "For me, the pleasure I gain out of it is to watch someone do something that I taught them, to watch them learn it and perform it and to watch them do well."

Just when you thought the last swash had been buckled, along comes a new saddle on the old war horse. No, that sentence doesn't make much sense, but then neither, really, does "The Horseman on the Roof," although it's still a lot of fun!First surprise: The title isn't ironic or metaphorical. It's literal. It's really about a horseman on a roof! Obviously he can't stay there long, because that would be a pretty dull movie. A fiddler? See, now a fiddler could stay on the roof a long time. You could even make a movie about a fiddler on a roof.

First he picked off Barry Bonnell. Then he picked off Dave Collins. To complete the inning, he picked off Willie Upshaw.Tippy Martinez had a solid 10-year career as a left-handed reliever for the Orioles, but that moment on Aug. 24, 1983, -- when he picked off three Toronto Blue Jays in one inning -- defined it."Seems like everybody was there that night," Martinez said. "I hear about it even today. That's how I'm remembered. Which is OK."Moments later, Lenn Sakata, in real life an infielder but who was, of all things, the catcher, hit a game-winning home run, capping a couple of the most bizarre innings in Orioles history.
