Orioles Review: Looking Back at Preseason Debates | Baltimore Sports Report
BSR takes a look back at some of the questions surrounding the Orioles and how they played out.

Jones has busy day talking about playoffs |
"Two days after Baltimore's regular season ended, Adam Jones embarked on a day-long tour of interviews and appearances that took him from the WFAN-AM studios in Manhattan's West Village to the MLB Network studios in Seacaucus, N.J. -- and several more stops in between."

Steve Melewski: During a trying season, Reimold turned to Brady for help
"I had his number for two weeks and then just finally hit rock bottom. I was probably, 0 for 30 at the time. It was after an 0 for 4 day and on an off day I was flying to Florida to see my daughter and I texted him. He flew out the next week."

School of Roch: Four players choose free agency
"Four Orioles minor leaguers have elected to become free agents: Infielder Scott Moore, first baseman Michael Aubrey and pitchers Cla Meredith and Alberto Castillo."

School of Roch: Brian Roberts non-update
 Brian Roberts hasn't undergone a CT scan, and the club hasn't scheduled one. I guess that means he's doing better.

Baltimore Orioles break with Aramark at Camden Yards -
"Aramark Corp. has been serving ballpark fare at Camden Yards since the stadium opened in 1992. But next year, the Baltimore Orioles will break their long-standing relationship with one of the country's largest food service operators and go with a new concessionaire."

Orioles notebook: Juan Samuel likely to interview for Pirates' and Brewers' managerial jobs -
"Juan Samuel, who guided the Orioles to a 17-34 record this season after he replaced the fired Dave Trembley, will likely interview for both the Pittsburgh Pirates' and Milwaukee Brewers' managerial jobs. Those became vacant when John Russell and Ken Macha were let go."

Orioles Insider: Grading the Orioles 
"A lot of people ask how I determine the marks, and how could the best all-around player on the team, Nick Markakis, get a worse grade than fellow outfielder Corey Patterson, or how seldom-used backup catcher Craig Tatum gets a better grade than starting backstop Matt Wieters."

Orioles: Orioles look for young rotation to continue to improve in 2011 -
"What we have done the last couple months shows the potential that we have. There are going to be rough times; it's not going to be all smooth sailing all the time," said Matusz, the 23-year-old left-hander who was 10-12 with a 4.30 ERA in 32 starts. "But just what we have done the last couple months [has shown] what we can do. So it is exciting."
