In twenty-one years with the Baltimore Sun, Kubatko became one of the region's most talented sportswriters, having won the 2004 Maryland Sports Writer of the Year award from the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association. During his tenure at the Sun he covered nearly every major sporting event in North America, including the NBA, the NFL, NCAA lacrosse, boxing, the World Series, the CFL Grey Cup and the MLB All-Star games. This is his thirteenth season covering the Orioles.
In November 2005, Kubatko began writing Roch Around the Clock, a blog which quickly became a central internet destination for sports fans in Baltimore and nationally. Attracting more than 100,000 page views every week, Kubatko's blog rapidly became the most highly trafficked blog at the Baltimore Sun and was often the most visited sports blog within the Tribune Company of newspapers.
