FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Kurt Ainsworth and Sidney Ponson have lockers that sit side by side in the Orioles' clubhouse this spring, giving the team its own version of a reality TV show. What happens when two pitchers with completely different personalities get traded for each other one summer and are then asked to unite on the same starting staff the following spring? They could call it The Orioles' Odd Couple. Yesterday morning, for example, the Orioles invited a nutritionist into their clubhouse to give players tips about improving their diets, and Ponson was having a hard time containing himself.

When Berea resident Nia Redmond heard that the long-vacant paint manufacturing plant in her East Baltimore neighborhood was to be torn down, she went door to door passing out fliers, inviting her neighbors to an emergency meeting. "A lot of us are still planting vegetables in our yards and we don't want to eat lead," Redmond said. "This is an elderly neighborhood. A lot of people already have asthma in here; a lot of people already have emphysema in here. " Early next year, the city is set to demolish the Ainsworth Paint and Chemical Co. plant, an empty eyesore for more than 20 years at the corner of Edison Highway and East Biddle Street.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- An examination of Kurt Ainsworth's right shoulder yesterday in Baltimore revealed two tears and a defect that threaten to end his season, and perhaps his playing career. Once a candidate for the fifth spot in the Orioles' rotation, Ainsworth has been found to have a torn labrum and a partial tear of the rotator cuff. Dr. Charles Silberstein, the team's orthopedic specialist, also found a divot in the glenoid fossa, or shoulder socket. "This is something that has developed over time," assistant trainer Brian Ebel said.

It took Kurt Ainsworth less than 48 hours to completely rearrange his life after the San Francisco Giants traded him to the Orioles on Thursday as the centerpiece of a package for pitcher Sidney Ponson. Ainsworth was with the Giants in Chicago when the deal was made. The right-handed pitcher flew back to San Francisco, where he and his wife packed for Baltimore, all the while tending to their 11-month-old daughter. "We completely moved out of San Francisco," Ainsworth said. "Did it all in a day."

Before he can make it back to the Orioles and try to salvage another lost season, Kurt Ainsworth will return to his roots - the ones that run all the way down to the lowest depths of the minor leagues. Maybe something good will grow this time. Ainsworth made the trip last night from Sarasota, Fla., to Aberdeen, where he'll start Sunday for the Single-A IronBirds of the New York-Penn League. Coming off elbow surgery two months ago, he'll be restricted to 50 pitches. Assuming he's no longer burdened by the same painful arm and shattered confidence - both detrimental to staying in the Orioles' rotation - Ainsworth will complete his rehabilitation at Aberdeen and likely reenter Triple-A Ottawa's roster.

Orioles pitcher Kurt Ainsworth underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow yesterday and could miss two more months of the season. A magnetic resonance imaging test appeared to show a bone chip in the elbow, but none were found during yesterday's procedure at Johns Hopkins Medical Center. Instead, Ainsworth had a condition called "synovitis," or fluid in the joint. "They cleaned up the inflamed tissue," head trainer Richie Bancells said. "There were no loose bodies. His elbow otherwise looked very good."

TORONTO - The Orioles were tied entering the ninth inning yesterday when the Toronto Blue Jays turned to their hottest reliever, Justin Speier, a pitcher Larry Bigbie had never faced in any form of organized baseball. Bigbie needed a quick scouting report, so he asked hitting coach Terry Crowley for what he described later as "the famous yellow paper in Crow's back pocket." With one glance, Bigbie learned that Speier was a sinker and slider specialist, so he went to the plate looking for something hard over the plate.

Coming off another bad outing that left his confidence shaken, Orioles pitcher Kurt Ainsworth was optioned to Triple-A Ottawa before last night's game in the latest shakeup of the team's struggling rotation. Manager Lee Mazzilli indicated that Rodrigo Lopez will replace Ainsworth, though he wasn't sure when the right-hander would make his first start of 2004. Reliever Darwin Cubillan, 31, had his contract purchased from Ottawa, and he arrived yesterday at Camden Yards during batting practice.

No matter how Orioles manager Mike Hargrove arranges his rotation during the last two weeks of the season, it doesn't appear that Kurt Ainsworth will be in it. Ainsworth, the centerpiece of the package acquired from the San Francisco Giants on July 31 for Sidney Ponson, is likely to pitch in relief once he's activated from the disabled list. "I would say the chances of him starting are slim," Hargrove said. Ainsworth is getting closer to his Orioles debut while recovering from a fractured right shoulder blade.

Uncommon Carriers is his most recent anthology of previously published pieces. With the exception of the Thoreauvian "Five Days on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers," which fits the collection like a glove fits a handbag, the essays explore the people and processes involved in the transportation of freight.

I guess we don't have to wait around any longer for Kurt Ainsworth's dramatic comeback with the Orioles. The oft-injured pitcher signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers. It's probably not a good sign that he heard a tearing sound when he reached out to shake hands with Dodgers executives. Ainsworth dropped some strong hints last spring that he was ready to retire after needing shoulder surgery, one year after having his elbow scoped, but he's giving it another shot. His next one most likely will contain cortisone.

The Orioles today announced that they have declined to tender a contract offer to outfielder Eric Byrnes, allowing him to become a free agent. Byrnes was acquired from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for OF Larry Bigbie on July 29. He hit .192 with 3 homers and 11 RBI in 52 games for the Orioles and combined to bat .226 in 126 games between the Oakland A's, Rockies and Orioles last season. After hitting safely in his first 11 games with the Orioles, he batted .137 over his final 41 games of the season, including an .073 average over the final month.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - If Sidney Ponson can be believed, and he says it with such conviction, he has never cared where the Orioles used him in their rotation. He'll treat an Opening Day start the same as any other. Throw strikes, retire batters, win games. Slotting isn't important. Told on Saturday that he would be the No. 4 starter this season, Ponson downplayed its significance when approached by reporters before yesterday's exhibition game against the Minnesota Twins. "It doesn't matter to me where I make my first start," he said.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Orioles pitcher Kurt Ainsworth most likely will undergo surgery to repair his right shoulder, with a goal of returning for the 2006 season. Retirement, it seems, no longer is an immediate consideration. Ainsworth returned to Fort Lauderdale Stadium yesterday morning, arriving in the clubhouse at 7:48 with the results of his magnetic resonance imaging test in one hand. Examined in Baltimore the previous day, Ainsworth found out that the pain in his shoulder is related to slight tears in his labrum and rotator cuff and a divot in the socket.
