This isn't the way the Orioles wanted it - forced to go through Arlington for a one-game wild card playoff to get to the American League Division Series - but I like the O's chances in Texas on Friday night. Maybe it's delirium from a lack of sleep -- my flight leaves for Texas in about five hours -- but I've gotta think that Orioles manager Buck Showalter loves this kind of winner-take-all matchup. All signs point to Showalter turning to rookie right-hander Steve Johnson to start Friday's game.

Monday was a pretty productive off day for the Orioles since both the Rays and Yankees lost. So the Orioles head into tonight's series opener in Boston trailing the Rays by four games for second place in the AL East, as well as the first AL Wild Card spot. They also got a little extra distance on the Yankees, who are now two games behind them in the division. But an Oakland win over Detroit put the A's 2 ½ games over the Orioles for the second AL Wild Card spot. The Indians are two back of Oakland.

As the end of the Major League Baseball regular season drew to a close this year, something that hadn't happened in a long time came to pass: the Baltimore Orioles made it to the postseason, winning the wild card playoff with the Rangers and then dropping their divisional round playoff with the Yankees. All-in-all, the 2012 season was a success for the Orioles, who hadn't make the playoffs since 1997. Some credit the team management, some the players, most likely both. This is baseball, though, a sport notorious for its legendary superstitions.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Buck Showalter often mixes gut feelings with statistical data to make his managerial calls on a case-by-case basis. On Thursday, Showalter chose his instincts over statistical wisdom, selecting 31-year-old left-hander Joe Saunders to pitch Friday's one-game wild-card playoff against the Texas Rangers instead of rookie Steve Johnson, who hasn't pitched since overextending his left knee Sept. 29. “Joe is rested,” Showalter said. “He's ready to go. Obviously, [he has]

There were two important developments on Friday at Camden Yards that could shed a little more light on who might pitch a one-game wild-card playoff next Friday. Chris Tillman again pitched exceptionally well Friday night - a one-hitter over eight innings against the Boston Red Sox. And Jason Hammel tested his right knee again Friday afternoon with a three-inning simulated game in the bullpen. He threw 47 pitches and rested in between each simulated inning, like he would during a game.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Orioles first baseman Mark Reynolds said it will take more than a painful foul ball off his left foot to keep him from playing in Friday's American League wild-card playoff game against the Texas Rangers. Reynolds fouled a ball off a bone in his left big toe in the fifth inning of the Orioles' 4-1 regular season finale loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, but he remained in the game. X-rays on Reynolds' foot were negative and he expects to play Friday. “No problem once you get under the lights and get a little adrenaline flowing,” Reynolds said.

The Orioles have known since Sunday night that they were playoff-bound. On Wednesday night, they finally learned whom they'll play. The club will begin its first postseason in 15 years at 8:37 p.m. Friday in Arlington, Texas, where the Orioles will have to win a wild-card game against the Rangers to keep their season alive. If the Orioles win Friday night, they'll begin the American League Division Series at home Sunday against the New York Yankees. The Orioles cost themselves home-field advantage in the wild-card round with a 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night, surrendering three home runs to third baseman Evan Longoria.
