They talk about the trade every day. The Royals' success is introducing them to a new and much bigger audience, so there are a hundred stories being retold to people who never paid much attention before. That means Alex Gordon's bumpy road to stardom. Salvador Perez's emergence as the American League's premier catcher. Yordano Ventura and his 102 mph fastball. And, every day, questions about the trade. It is talked about enough that we should probably call it The Trade, capital letters, and the impact of acquiring James Shields and Wade Davis is obvious to anyone who watches this team.

Membership will top 1,200, according to a press release.

The Orioles announced Friday that right-handed reliever Preston Guilmet, who was designated for assignment off the 40-man roster Saturday to make room for infielder Alexi Casilla, has been traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash considerations. Guilmet, acquired in a minor league trade with the Cleveland Indians in April, was shuttled between the major leagues and Triple-A Norfolk frequently this season, making 10 appearances with the Orioles and 40 for the Tides. He allowed six earned runs and eight hits in 10 1/3 innings in the majors.

Mike Preston, columnist: Good move by Ravens - there are still several players they value who are available. Chris Korman, reporter: We won't know why the Ravens moved back until we see who they pick (unless they opt to tell us in the press conference we're heading to any minute), but they obviously favored Alabama's Dont'a Hightower over Courtney Upshaw. It also seems they would have liked Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler, but  weren't sold on drafting Badgers center/guard Peter Konz this early.

During the seventh-inning stretch of an otherwise brutal Orioles' beating on Saturday, the video scoreboard at Camden Yards flashed a message that drew a thunderous roar from the announced crowd of 35,335. The Orioles had just traded two minor leaguers for likely Hall-of-Fame slugger Jim Thome, who is expected to join the team here Sunday and be the club's regular, left-handed designated hitter. It's a straight trade, with the Orioles picking up the remainder of Thome's $1.25 million salary for 2012.

Some Maryland lawmakers concerned about declining numbers of sharks worldwide have introduced legislation to ban trade in the ocean predators' fins, the prized ingredient in a soup that is popular in Chinese cuisine. Bills introduced Tuesday in both House and Senate would outlaw sale, trade, distribution or even possession of raw, dried or processed shark fins.  Violations would be punishable by fines ranging from $5,000 for the first offense up to $50,000 for repeat infractions.

- Brian Roberts was playing golf in Arizona on Wednesday when Florida Marlins outfielder Cody Ross alerted him that the Orioles had just traded for a starting pitcher. Brian Matusz was in Hawaii on vacation and learned about the trade on a phone call from his brother. Jeremy Guthrie had heard the rumors for much of the day, but he didn't hear that the deal was final until he was preparing to play in Pam Shriver's charity tennis event at 1st Mariner Arena. All three were pleased to learn of the trade that landed veteran starter Kevin Millwood from the Texas Rangers for reliever Chris Ray and Rule 5 selection Ben Snyder.

Judging from the reaction on Twitter to the Orioles' trade of Robert Andino to the Mariners on Tuesday, many O's fans have a heavy heart over the infielder's departure. Andino will be forever etched in Baltimore baseball lore for getting the game-winning hit in the Orioles' Game 162 win in 2011 over the Red Sox. The game was later nicknamed the “Curse of the Andino” since it played a huge part in Boston missing the postseason. Many fans point to that game as a tonesetter to the team's success this past season.

The Bush administration's rather zestful bashing of 37 nations accused of unfair trading practices -- with Japan, China and Taiwan predictably heading the list -- may be but a prelude to retaliatory action. If so, it could indicate that the administration is interested in an important legislative trade-off (pun intended).It would work this way: In exchange for its agreement to continue tough mandatory sanctions against miscreants who throw up barriers to U.S. imports and dump their exports at artificially low prices, the administration would retain its authority to negotiate trade agreements subject only to an up-or-down vote in Congress, without changes.

The root cause of undocumented immigration, whether from Mexico or Central America, is the poverty and lack of economic opportunity that have afflicted those nations as a result of failed economic policies - including their trade agreements with the United States. Those thousands of migrants - including unaccompanied minors - arriving at our border are not criminals trying to break the law. They are a warning sign that the collateral damage of so-called "free trade" agreements cannot always be found in closed factories and shuttered Main Street businesses in the United States.

The country's top foreign trade official told a gathering at a Baltimore County electronics components and design company Friday about gains in U.S. manufacturing jobs, and agreements being negotiated that would open two-thirds of the globe to free trade. U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman's appearance at Zentech Manufacturing Inc. in Woodlawn was part of Maryland's celebration of National Manufacturing Day, first organized by several industry groups in 2012. Across Maryland, state and local officials and business leaders conducted factory tours and gave speeches, all to highlight the significance and promise of manufacturing jobs in Maryland, which made up about 3.5 percent of total state employment in August.

World events over the last month or so have proven that we do have a very creditable terrorist threat, not only to the Middle East, but to Europe and the U.S. As this is the start of the NFL season and all the fantasy leagues are in full force, I would like to recommend a World Leader Fantasy League. As we already have a World Leader team in place, I propose trading our current world leader, President Barack Obama, for Great Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron. Last week demonstrated that Mr. Obama is not up to the task.

Given the Orioles' need for a corner infielder, Miami third baseman Hanley Ramirez might have made sense in Baltimore . But early Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the O's to the punch, acquiring Ramirez (and left-handed reliever Randy Choate) from the Marlins in exchange for rookie starter Nathan Eovaldi and minor league pitcher Scott McGough. Dan Connolly, citing an industry source, reported Tuesday night that the Marlins might have had interest in a young O's starter -- such as Jake Arrieta, Brian Matusz or Zach Britton -- but Baltimore would have had to include much more in a trade proposal given the competition for Ramirez.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette mentioned several times this month that he would like to bolster his bench depth, especially from the left side of the plate. Well, in a matter of four days, he added four left-handed hitters to the roster. No sexy names, but potentially role fillers, and that's a Duquette specialty. Catcher and left-handed hitter Steve Clevenger came up from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday. Switch-hitting utility player Jimmy Paredes arrived from the Tides on Thursday.

The Orioles made a second trade Saturday night, acquiring infielders Kelly Johnson and Michael Almanzar from the Boston Red Sox for minor league infielders Jemile Weeks and Ivan De Jesus Jr. It came on the heels of a trade with the Chicago White Sox that yielded the Orioles outfielder Alejandro De Aza for two low-level minor leaguers. Johnson, 32, has played with the New York Yankees and Red Sox this season. The left-handed hitter and 10-season veteran has hit a combined .212 with six homers in 87 games this season.
