Recaps from the last game of the year can be found at Orioles.com, The Sun, MLive.com, and MASNsports (w/post-game Buck).

Orioles Insider: Roberts talks about headaches; hit himself in helmet with bat
"I just have some lack of balance and some headaches, and just stuff that hasn’t been a whole lot of fun," Roberts said. "So unfortunately I haven’t been able to obviously get out there and play, but we’re still working on trying to get all the results and figure out what’s going on."

School of Roch: The Buck really stops here
"Like I told the players, you need to get away from it," he said. "We're so close to it every day. It's right there in your face every day. Sometimes, you've got to back off and take a breath and look at things realistically. I've been very fortunate to have some players who helped, who played real well while I was here. Pitched better. And like I said before, I think the same thing would have happened regardless. They've had an impact. We hope it continues."

Orioles Insider: Attendance low reached at Camden Yards
"The 2010 final attendance for 80 home dates (Friday’s doubleheader is counted as one admission) was 1,733,019. That's the lowest since the 1988 Orioles, who lost a franchise-record 107 games, drew 1,660,738 at Memorial Stadium."

Orioles Insider: MacPhail won't approach Angelos about extension
"I don’t think it’s fair to put him in that position. The deal was the deal and we’ll talk about it, as far as I’m concerned, when it’s over," MacPhail said.
