Orioles' president Andy MacPhail reiterated on Thursday that extending the contracts of Brian Roberts and Nick Markakis are among the team's offseason priorities. "I would say we're still in the initial contact phase, but there have been conversations as it relates to both players," MacPhail said. "We have plenty of time to talk to the two of them, but it's not a horse race. It's not one over the other or one ahead of the other. We're interested in talking to them both."
