Major league draft 6 p.m. [MLB Network] Twenty years ago, the Orioles selected Ben McDonald (left) with the first overall pick. He didn't exactly make it to Cooperstown, but then no pitchers taken No. 1 overall have. The best of them are Mike Moore, Andy Benes, Tim Belcher and Floyd Bannister. It's something for the Nationals to think about before choosing phenom Stephen Strasburg.

Woody Williams probably will get a shot at starting in the NL Championship Series for the St. Louis Cardinals after missing the Division Series with a pulled muscle in his left side. Williams threw 20-25 pitches from the mound Sunday, the day after the Cardinals completed their first-round sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and played catch yesterday. He could get a start as early as Game 2 of the NLCS on Thursday night. Manager Tony La Russa said the team would wait until tomorrow, the morning of Game 1, before making its roster final for the second round of the playoffs.

It appears the Orioles' payroll will exceed $40 million for the 1995 season. Some of the numbers below and the roster itself are highly speculative -- it is assumed, for example, that the Orioles will sign free agents Ted Higuera and John Franco, as well as San Diego Padres pitcher Andy Benes. But, in any case, the Orioles likely would be subject to any luxury tax enacted after the next labor agreement is reached.Note: a-projected salary for 1995 for unsigned player; b-Hoiles and the Orioles have an agreement on a five-year, $17.5 million contract.

PHILADELPHIA -- The meteor shower began without the big guy, which was just fine with St. Louis Cardinals slugger Mark McGwire. He was getting tired of being a one-man band anyway. McGwire missed Opening Day and a big chunk of April with a sore lower back, but -- for once -- he wasn't terribly missed. The new and improved Cardinals lineup has launched baseballs into the bleachers at a rate heretofore unseen even in the "juiced ball" era, the club's 55 homers shattering the major-league record for the first month of the season.

From the start, the National League Central seemed doomed to middle-market obscurity. Baseball's rush to regional realignment isolated several of the league's low-revenue clubs in the same division, and it only got worse when the 1997 expansion pushed the economically challenged Milwaukee Brewers into the picture. If not for the exploits of Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa the past two years, the division would have had trouble finding itself on a map. Not anymore. The arrival of superstar Ken Griffey in Cincinnati has added a dimension to the home run chase, and major off-season additions to several clubs have changed the chemistry of the division.
