Ryan Howard just wanted to concentrate on baseball this spring. No squabbles over his contract. No daily questions about his future. The big slugger got his wish - and a hefty raise, too. Howard and the Philadelphia Phillies agreed to a three-year, $54 million contract yesterday, avoiding a potentially contentious arbitration hearing. The 2006 National League Most Valuable Player will earn $15 million this season, $19 million next year and $20 million in 2011. "The things that have happened prior with Ryan, it was really nothing adversarial, although I know with some people it was depicted that way," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said.

1. Alex Rodriguez New York Yankees, third baseman Technically, he is not a free agent, but he can opt out of his final three years (and $81 million) by Nov. 10. He says he loves New York, but he's booed when he missteps and is a constant tabloid target. Look for Rodriguez, 32, to be elsewhere in 2008. Orioles factor: They dealt with agent Scott Boras once this year and agreed to a contract outside their comfort zone ($6 million bonus to first-round pick Matt Wieters). Don't bet on it happening again this winter.

ATLANTA // They showed the graphic on the scoreboard last night at Turner Fieldwhile Russ Ortiz was warming up before throwing his first pitch as an Oriole. In 2003 as a member of the Atlanta Braves, Ortiz won a National League-high 21 games. That same season, Tim Hudson won 16 games for the Oakland Athletics with a tidy 2.70 ERA. Three years later, on a humid night in Atlanta, they were simply two veteran pitches, relying on stuff not good enough to consistently get major league hitters out. In the Orioles' 7-4 victory in front of 38,414, Hudson was yanked after 2 2/3 innings, booed off the mound after giving up six runs (five earned)

PHILADELPHIA - Andruw Jones sits at a card table in the middle of the visitors' clubhouse with a smile on his face and one comment after another hanging on his lips. He taunts Atlanta Braves bench coach Pat Corrales, playfully refusing to sign Corrales' charity baseballs. He talks trash to teammate and fellow card player Brian Jordan, freshly spinning first-person athletespeak by abbreviating himself: "A.J. is comin'. A.J.'s gonna get ya." He berates rookie outfielder Jeff Francoeur for leaving the table after losing.

One by one, members of the Pabao Little League of Willemstad, Curacao, named their favorite baseball player for the TV broadcast of the 2005 Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa. "Andruw Jones." "Andruw Jones." "Andruw Jones." There was no deviation. No Roger Clemens or Alex Rodriguez thrown in for good measure. "Everybody said him," Atlanta Braves outfielder Brian Jordan said with a laugh. "But he does a lot for Curacao and the Little League there, so they have a good role model and it is good to see. He put them on the map."

WASHINGTON - The Washington Nationals can scrap. That much seems clear. They seemed to face a terrible mismatch yesterday against the division-leading Atlanta Braves. Throwing for the Braves: John Smoltz, a borderline Hall of Fame candidate who's still near the top of his game with an assortment of pitches among the most devilish in the sport. Throwing for the Nationals: 23-year-old Jason Bergmann, a rookie who had never started a game in the big leagues. And it was a mismatch. Smoltz pitched an efficient seven innings and was followed by five relievers, while the Nationals ended up using eight pitchers.

With O's down 2, Cameron's upside clear MIKE CAMERON is not a .476 hitter. His career average is .249, weighed down by a propensity to strike out - albeit in dramatic fashion. It's tough to fault an athlete as gifted as Cameron for thinking he can do everything exceedingly well. He has the body and running style of a Michael Johnson, if not quite the speed. Get him on base and he can push a running game into high gear. However, he has a few liabilities at the plate, and it bothers him when he falls short with such an overload of talent.
