BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles have agreed to terms with Florida high school shortstop Manny Machado, the third overall pick in this year's amateur draft. The deal was completed shortly before Monday's midnight deadline. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Machado batted .639 with 12 homers and 56 RBIs in 29 games for Brito Miami Private this season. He also scored 43 runs, hit 27 doubles and stole 17 bases. The No. 3 pick was the Orioles' highest since 1989, when they took pitcher Ben McDonald with the first overall selection.

Don't look now, but the Orioles and Nationals are in first place. I said don't look. As I write this column Friday afternoon, Baltimore (8-5) holds a one-game lead over New York and Tampa Bay in the American League East, and Washington (10-4) has two more victories than second-place Atlanta in the National League East. Nobody should be making their World Series plans just yet, but the first three weeks of this Major League Baseball season certainly have been more exciting than in recent years.

Luke Scott felt something old and familiar on Monday. The Baltimore Orioles outfielder had a quick flashback when he walked through the gate to take the field at Halfway Little League. One of the Boys of Summer remembered what it was like to be a boy in summer. “I had no cares in the world,” Scott said about his formative baseball years. “I was just playing baseball to have fun.” Even with all the expertise Scott has gained from years of playing baseball, the idea of enjoying the game topped the list when he spoke to about 90 youth baseball players on the first day of the Orioles in the Outfield Baseball Camp at Martin L. Snook Park.

Even as a major league pitcher, the idea of family isn't wasted on Darren O'Day. He has learned that baseball teams are part of an extended family. And the family is the happiest when it is winning. There are a lot of smiles to go around in Baltimore these days, especially with the Orioles in the thick of a pennant race and seemingly headed for no worse than the franchise's best record and first playoff berth in 15 years. The Orioles' family is built on a common belief this year - that they can really be champions.

BALTIMORE (AP) - The courtship of free-agent pitcher Carl Pavano continued Monday in Baltimore, where the right-hander was escorted through Camden Yards by Orioles executive vice president Jim Beattie. It was the fourth site visited this fall by Pavano, who was 18-8 with a 3.00 ERA with the Florida Marlins in 2004. He has also been wooed by the Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees and world champion Boston Red Sox. Pavano arrived in Baltimore on Sunday and had dinner with Orioles owner Peter Angelos, Beattie, manager Lee Mazzilli and pitching coach Ray Miller.

Jeannette Pearce, of Funkstown, hasn't always been a loyal Baltimore Orioles fan. In fact, she never really got into baseball until last May, when she was 88 years old. On May 6, 2012, the O's were looking to complete a three-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox in Fenway Park. Baltimore won the game in thrilling fashion, defeating Boston 9-6 in 17 innings.

There's no crying in baseball? It was one of those moments when something just happens without any warning or buildup. It was hard to explain why it happened and what sparked it. I shed tears of joy. Yes, is this what I've come to in my mid-40s? Writing my first column in a couple of months about how I've become a bawling, babbling buffoon in middle age? No, this is not what this column is about. It's about baseball, of course. The tears - well at least the lump in my throat, the moistness of my eyes and the sogginess of the sleeve of my T-shirt - arrived last Friday morning as I sat in this very seat at home watching highlights on my laptop of the Orioles beating the Yankees on the night they unveiled the Cal Ripken Jr. statue at Camden Yards.

Emily Bolton has a sweet seat for Baltimore Orioles games this year - and an even sweeter job. Bolton, a 2009 Smithsburg High School graduate, is working as an Orioles ball girl this season at Baltimore's Camden Yards. “It's awesome, I love it,” she said. “I really appreciate the opportunity. I've been an Orioles fan my whole life.” Bolton works at about a half-dozen games a month, seated in foul territory on either the first- or third-base line, waiting to field foul balls.

Dylan Bundy knows you have to walk before you can even start to think about running. Maybe that's why the 19-year-old pitcher is able to take everything in stride. Bundy, the Baltimore Orioles' top pitching prospect, continued his march through Single-A competition as he controlled the Hagerstown Suns for five innings - allowing just one hit in a 3-1 win on Sunday for his first professional victory. It was just another step in the right direction. “I'm just taking it day by day,” Bundy said.
