Steroids. Staph. Suspensions. Arrests. Acrimony. Aborted trades. The 2005 Orioles have endured it all in what was once a promising season. Rafael Palmeiro's 10-day suspension from baseball yesterday for steroid violations is the latest in a string of setbacks to beset the club this season. The Orioles have had problems from head to foot. Specifically, Sidney Ponson's head and Sammy Sosa's foot. Trouble started on Christmas Day 2004. Ponson, the $22.5 million pitcher, was incarcerated after an altercation on the beach in his native Aruba.

Having diagnosed Eric Davis' affliction, though uncertain of its cause, Orioles team doctors believe the outfielder likely will need two to three weeks to recover fully from an abscess in his abdomen.Dr. William Goldiner said yesterday that Davis has shown significant improvement since Thursday, when doctors were still uncertain of what had caused a 3 1/2 -inch mass to develop inside Davis' abdomen. Further tests revealed the abscess, which Goldiner said has shrunken significantly in the past two days as Davis has been treated with antibiotics.

Orioles outfielder Eric Davis has reached a critical juncture in his recovery from an abdominal abscess. Doctors plan to wean Davis from antibiotics today then watch what course the roughly inch mass inside him takes.Should the abscess remain "sterilized" and not become aggravated, doctors believe Davis may be able to rejoin the team next weekend in Atlanta. If the inflammation and pain recur, doctors believe Davis will have to submit to surgery, which would necessitate his missing six to eight weeks or possibly longer.

Baltimore heavyweight Hasim Rahman had surgery Friday to remove an abscess on his spine, which could keep him out of action "for at least six to eight weeks," according to a spokeswoman for the University of Maryland Medical Center. The two-hour operation, conducted at the medical center, forced the postponement of Rahman's 10-round fight with Danell Nicholson, an elimination bout scheduled for Oct. 7 in Connecticut for the International Boxing Federation's No. 2 ranking. "He had compression of the nerve roots of the spinal canal, causing leg weakness," said Dr. Barbara Lazio, chief resident in neurosurgery, who described the growth as "a collection of infectious material or pus, which is a staph infection."
