  1. Losing Machado hurts O's lineup, defense

    Christina Kahrl

    CHICAGO -- With the news already out, the Orioles' brass was ready to put the best possible face on the fact that third baseman Manny Machado will have to miss the remainder of the season with an injury to his right knee almost identical to the one ...

  2. Chris Davis' big blast an echo from 2013

    Christina Kahrl

    For an instant, it was like we hadn't flipped the calendar to 2014: Chris Davis, game on the line, game-winning blast. Because 2014 has not been that kind of year for Chris Davis, and that has to make you wonder whether he'll ever produce as much mag...

  3. First-place O's get Chris Davis back

    Christina Kahrl

    So the first-place Orioles are getting Chris Davis back. That comes after they're already getting Manny Machado back. Along with the big-bopping benefits of Nelson Cruz, they should be ready to roll, right? Well, maybe not so much, because Matt Wi...

  4. Would adding Johan Santana help O's?

    Christina Kahrl

    This is getting talked up on Twitter as very close to happening: Johan Santana could be an Oriole. If so, I love it. I love it even if it subsequently turns out that he has nothing left and that his towering stack of injuries has robbed him of his...

  5. Sizing up the best World Series Web Gems

    Christina Kahrl

    There's something ironic about talking about some of the best plays in World Series history when the key feature of the first two games of this year's Fall Classic have been the defensive miscues that decided the outcome. But as quickly as we've judg...

  6. Does AL MVP race have an easy answer?

    Christina Kahrl

    Another day provided another chance to see what the likely leaders in the American League Most Valuable Player race were up to. Miguel Cabrera homered. Chris Davis homered. And Mike Trout, the guy you'd prefer to pick if you were starting your team t...

  7. Tejada latest bittersweet news in fandom

    Christina Kahrl

    Miguel Tejada's 105-game suspension might seem like just the latest sad chapter in one man's fall from grace. This wasn't his first time running afoul of the game, after all: He admitted to lying to Congress and to buying HGH. He's provided alibis ev...

  8. Sizzling Blue Jays won't just streak and fade

    Christina Kahrl

    Now that the Blue Jays have rattled off a 10-game win streak, we're almost back to what I think we all expected in the American League East when the season started: a five-team race where nobody -- nobody -- should be considered the automatic...

  9. Need to add O, how about a platoon?

    Christina Kahrl

    It's easy to say spring training means nothing, that clubs know their rosters, and action from the Cactus or Grapefruit Leagues is just a time-filling cash cow that's about three weeks too long. But there are elective decisions to be made, and as muc...

  10. Orioles starters offer few sure things

    Christina Kahrl

    The number of reasons to doubt the 2013 Orioles is as long now as it was last year -- the one-run games, the extra-inning wins, the improbable performances, there are all sorts of reasons to wonder how they could repeat any of it. But the rotation is...

  11. Forget-me-nots for the missing men of 2012

    Christina Kahrl

    Say you're a team that has a problem, like losing an everyday player to free agency. Market solutions tend to be expensive, whether in cash spent or prospects dealt. But some teams already have potential solutions for their seeming offseason needs on...

  12. Does picking top skippers make sense?

    Christina Kahrl

    It was the managers' turn Tuesday in Major League Baseball's awards week, and you can understand why this might be greeted by a collective yawn by the performance-analysis community. The throwaway comment is that it's the award for whichever guy in t...

  13. Winter's discontent -- why not go for it?

    Christina Kahrl

    OK, we know: This year's free-agent market is not like last year's. It isn't like the market will yield many or any easy choices for who to throw a six- or 10-year contract at. You can probably set this winter's over-under on nine-figure free-agent d...

  14. A's fielding their best, and just win

    Christina Kahrl

    A's versus O's in September, and there's something major at stake? Gritty starting pitching, a stack of well-turned double plays and the winner winds up being whoever homered with somebody on base -- what is this, a "That '70s Show" rerun? Perhaps no...

  15. Zach Britton's gem O's latest surprise

    Christina Kahrl

    The Orioles are the team that won't go away. For months now, they've been predicted to, expected to, and they have no end of excuses for why they're supposed to be long since out of the expanded wild-card picture already. Injuries, run differential, ...

  16. Decision day approaching for Orioles

    Christina Kahrl

    The Baltimore Orioles' walk-off win over the Detroit Tigers in the 13th inning Saturday makes for an interesting moment, and not just for the O's. You don't expect to win a game in extras on your new backup catcher's first hit of the year -- but the ...
