Andy MacPhail's likely departure a blow to Baltimore Orioles - SI.com

The week that was in Birdland (Sept. 11th) - isportsweb
"There’s no question that these Orioles are playing out a string of games to merely get to the end of the season at this point, however we’re also starting to learn a few things about some of the younger players we’re starting to see."

Baltimore Orioles GM Candidates - MLB Daily Dish
"The Baltimore Orioles are beginning to look at general manager candidates and the few whispers making their way up the I-495 are that former Diamondbacks GM Josh Byrnes is a leading candidate to be the teams next GM. Let's take a quick look at Byrnes and two others who are on the Orioles' radar." Up the "I-495"? I do not think that means what you think it means.

Buck Supposedly Has the Option of Being GM and Manager Concurrently - Camden Depot
"Buck would be the first person to occupy this position since Paul Richards who was the Orioles GM and manager from 1955 to 1958 when Lee MacPhail took over the GM role, leaving Richards as only the manager of the team. Even back in the 50s this was considered a unique situation. There are just too many reasons for this not to be a good idea and it is why few have ever tried to do it."

Steve Melewski: Potomac rallies and beats Frederick to force Game 5 - MASN
"The Frederick Keys took a 1-0 lead to the eighth inning this afternoon at Potomac. Six outs from advancing to the Carolina League championship series, the Keys could not maintain the shutout. Potomac came up with six runs in the last of the eighth to post a 6-1 victory that evens the best-of-five series at two wins and sends the clubs back to Frederick Monday night at 7 p.m in the fifth and deciding game." The winner of that game will play Kinston in the championship series.

Orioles Buzz: James Baker: As fall slowly starts to arrive ... - MASN
"That is why I watch, because Markakis still feels the need to lower his shoulder and drive through Cervelli in a game that means nothing to Baltimore, save for pride. As long as that is the case, I will feel the need to sit and comment, watch and cheer. It's in my blood and even though this season has been an unmitigated disaster as fall begins to show itself in between the raindrops, my heart begins to sink because I know it is coming to an end."
