IF YOUR FAVORITE team is the Orioles and your second-favorite team is whatever team is playing the Yankees, then the Anaheim Angels made a discouraging weekend in Baltimore a little more bearable. The Angels swept the Yankees in the Bronx to help the Red Sox tighten up what once looked like a runaway race in the American League East. That may not do the Orioles any good - especially after an 0-6 homestand that refocused local attention on the NFL exhibition season - but it was food for the soul if you're one of those fans who is sickened by the sight of pinstripes in the postseason.

Angels: The Anaheim City Council voted 3-2 yesterday to approve a memorandum of agreement with the Walt Disney Co. for a 33-year lease of Anaheim Stadium, with Disney retaining a 20-year bailout option. The club will be called the Anaheim Angels next season, and in three years they will be playing in a renovated, state-of-the-art stadium. The club will remain in Anaheim for at least two more decades, and more likely 33 years or beyond. Immediately, Disney announced that it has renewed an agreement to buy a minority interest in the California Angels from Gene Autry and his wife, Jackie, and take over operational control of the American League team.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- As the news conference announcing the signing of Fernando Valenzuela was under way upstairs last evening, California Angels pitcher Scott Lewis sat in the Anaheim Stadium clubhouse and pondered his future.Neither Angels manager Doug Rader nor pitching coach Marcel Lachemann had told him how the acquisition would affect Lewis, the fifth starter in the rotation, but the rookie righthander did not need an explanation."They don't have to tell me anything," said Lewis, who is 1-4 with a 6.21 earned run average.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Rams will notify the city of Anaheim today that they intend to invoke the escape clause in their long-term lease for Anaheim Stadium to explore the option of moving.The team will not give formal 15 months' notice today, as required by the escape clause, but will provide the city with a specific date indicating when it will do so.While declining to provide the date, sources said the team is not expected to give formal notice before April, which would allow enough time to begin play elsewhere in the fall of 1995.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Ron Moyer, a Los Angeles Rams season-ticket holder for 20 years, was tailgating Sunday in the parking lot outside Anaheim Stadium."If we're going to keep the same front-office management, we welcome the Rams [moving] to Baltimore," said Moyer, a marketing executive in the aerospace industry. "It'll save us all a little money. We'll still have our party, only it'll be in the living room instead of the parking lot."Many Rams fans are already staying home. There were 7,260 no-shows Sunday for the Rams' game against the Washington Redskins, which drew 45,546 to 69,008-seat Anaheim Stadium.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The talks about selling and moving are heating up, even if the Los Angeles Rams aren't.And at maybe their lowest ebb since the franchise motored down the freeway to Anaheim, John Shaw, the team's most powerful executive, had to be re-asked the question:Is this club (a) for sale, as widely rumored? Or (b) strongly considering a move to another city?"The team isn't for sale, I can tell you that," said Shaw, the executive vice president, "but . . ."And this next comment was perhaps the biggest hit of all for Rams' fans to absorb Sunday when their favorite team was being shut out, 13-0, by the NFL's worst defense (Atlanta)

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The two Los Angeles NFL teams -- Raiders and Rams -- are both virtually homeless these days.The day after the Anaheim City Council voted to evict the Rams from their training facility on March 31, Raiders owner Al Davis announced he hasn't sent out season-ticket applications for the 1994 season because he doesn't know the status of the earthquake-ravaged Los Angeles Coliseum."

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- You don't have to be a Las Vegas sharpie to figure this thing out. The chances of the Los Angeles Rams staying in Anaheim now are about as good as some wise guy, high-roller's attempt to break the bank at Caesar's.Make the odds long. Real long. Or, in horse racing parlance, this is the way a handicap might read now that the race to win the Rams' hearts and home in 1995 officially has begun:* Baltimore (2-1): Favorite must fight J.K. Cooke.* St. Louis (5-2): Only glitch is lease snafu.

MESA, Ariz. -- If the eyes are the windows of the soul, Mark Langston's soul is carefully hidden behind blue shutters.Through the worst days of his often dreadful first California Angels season, the days he was chewed up and spit out after 2 2/3 innings or, worse still, the days he pitched brilliantly but received little offensive support, never once did those blue eyes flash in anger in front of television cameras or reporters.Never once, as he flailed toward a 10-17 record and an earned-run average of 4.40, was he seen kicking a bench or a water cooler.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Maybe it was just your basic Halloween prank, but here were those wild and wacky Los Angeles Rams, beginning the day discussing a change of quarterbacks.And ending it denying a possible change of franchise venues.Is the world really ready for the Baltimore Rams?Hey, a few weeks ago, no one was ready for T. J. Rubley, either.It is almost part of this team's funky tradition by now. If the organization isn't deeply immersed in some hot, juicy controversy, you need only stand back and wait.
