BALTIMORE - Miguel Tejada rescinded his demand to be traded by the Orioles, telling team officials during a phone call Saturday that he's willing to help Baltimore become a contender in the AL East.

It was just a small wire service story, an early December offseason baseball dispatch from the Dominican Republic that hardly would catch the eyes of newspaper editors, but it sure opened the eyes of team executives, including those on both sides of Chicago. Miguel Tejada, Baltimore's All-Star shortstop, was quoted as saying a "change of scenery" might be best for him. It took only a few hours before general managers were calling Baltimore with their plans to facilitate and accommodate Tejada, much to the shock of Orioles executives.

"Talk to me in August" was the response of my cousin, a Boston Red Sox fan, after the Baltimore Orioles completed a three-game sweep of the New York Yankees a few weeks ago. He wasn't about to entertain the idea of the Orioles being American League East contenders in April. But I sure was. Still am in May. With Brian Roberts on base, Melvin Mora at the plate and Miguel Tejada on deck, anything seems possible these days. Sure, we're only a month into the season, but the statistics already are on the Orioles' side.

andrewm@herald-mail.com As a longtime Orioles fan, I only allowed myself to be slightly intoxicated by Baltimore's opening-night win over Pedro Martinez and the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. Coming off a long, baseball-less winter, it's hard not to get excited about the results of one game, especially coming on the heels of the NCAA basketball tournaments. In March Madness, each contest means everything. But the reality of Major League Baseball is that a team could lose all of its games in April and May and still not be mathematically eliminated from the title hunt.

CHICAGO - If the Baltimore Orioles indeed fulfill Miguel Tejada's desire to be traded this winter, the Cubs most likely would be among the long list of suitors. Industry sources say several teams already have called the Orioles after Tejada's surprise request in an Associated Press story Thursday, and the Cubs are thought to be among them although there was no official confirmation. Cubs general manager Jim Hendry refused any comment Saturday. The Cubs' interest would be one of those "duh" things, so logical you would presume it. Almost any team would want a former MVP shortstop who hit .304 with 26 homers and 98 RBI last season.

Miguel Tejada makes a good point about the Baltimore Orioles. They are truly adrift, going nowhere, with no chance to compete at any time in the foreseeable future. That wasn't the picture they sold him when they also added Javy Lopez and Rafael Palmeiro - and almost signed Vladimir Guerrero - for the 2004 season. Once one of the proudest franchises in the majors, it has had eight consecutive losing seasons, including 4-32 and 25-48 dashes to the finish line in 2002 and 2005.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles ended their 10-game losing streak in dramatic fashion, getting an RBI single from slumping Nick Markakis in the 11th inning to defeat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 Sunday. The victory was the first for interim manager Juan Samuel, who was promoted from third base coach when Dave Trembley was fired on Friday. The Orioles lost Samuel's first two games by a combined 19-2 score. Cesar Izturis led off the 11th with a walk against Hideki Okajima (2-2)

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Miguel Tejada had a season-high four hits, ended a long home run drought and drove in four runs to lead the Baltimore Orioles past the Florida Marlins 11-5 Thursday night. Tejada singled in a run and scored in the third inning, singled in the fourth, singled and scored in the sixth and hit a three-run homer in the seventh. The drive ended a career-long streak of 205 at-bats without a home run. Coming into the game, Tejada had only one RBI in his last 99 at-bats.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Nick Swisher and Curtis Granderson hit two-run doubles in the second inning to back another stingy start by Phil Hughes, and the New York Yankees handed the Baltimore Orioles their seventh straight loss, 9-1 on Wednesday night. Robinson Cano hit a two-run homer in the seventh and ran his hitting streak to 16 games for New York, which had 14 hits. Jorge Posada returned to the lineup after sitting out since May 16 with a broken bone in his right foot and went 1 for 3 with a walk.

That noise you hear is the back end of the Baltimore Orioles bandwagon dragging the ground as fans who had given up on the team in recent years scramble to jump back on for the ride. Yes, the magic is back for Orioles fans. The O's finished out the month of April in first place, a position only the most optimistic of fans could have guessed they would be in after 23 games. The question now is: Can they stay on top? Conventional wisdom says that the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees will eventually start playing the kind of baseball that they always play and that sooner or later the Orioles will cool off. I think the conventional wisdom is wrong this year.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- A wretched first half has taken much of the mystery out of the 2010 season for the Baltimore Orioles. The possibility of securing a winning record for the first time in 13 years ended with a 2-16 start, and manager Dave Trembley was fired on June 4 after Baltimore slipped to 24 games below .500. Although the Orioles took a four-game winning streak into the All-Star break and were a less-than-awful 14-20 under interim manager Juan Samuel, they still own the worst record in the majors (29-59)

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles didn't need a history lesson to feel good about sweeping the Boston Red Sox. There were plenty of other reasons to celebrate the accomplishment. Ty Wigginton doubled home the winning run in the 10th inning following a throwing error by Boston closer Jonathan Papelbon, giving the Orioles a 3-2 victory Sunday and their first three-game sweep of the Red Sox at home in 36 years. None of the Orioles really cared that disco was the craze or that Gerald Ford was President the last time Baltimore swept a three-game home set from Boston.

I completed the JFK 50 Mile ultramarathon for a second time last month. People are still asking me how I did it. Lots of training and hard work, I tell them. And on race day, you just have to suck up the pain and suffering and find a way to persevere. Being a Baltimore Orioles fan also has helped with my preparation. Running 50 miles almost seems easy compared to sticking with the O's for a 162 games a year, through eight straight losing seasons. And the aid stations at the JFK don't even offer any shots of vitamin B-12.
