Cheer up, Ken Williams. Things could be worse than they are with the White Sox. If Williams had not gone all in by adding Jake Peavy and Alex Rios late last season, he would have had the resources to aggressively pursue one of his longtime favorites, Chone Figgins. Figgins signed a four-year, $36million deal with the Mariners instead. He has been a huge disappointment, going from irascible igniter to over-the-hill warrior in a matter of months. He recently was dropped from the No. 2 spot behind Ichiro Suzuki to No. 9, with his response contributing to the mounting tension in the clubhouse.

When the rains came in the top of the third inning, Russ Ortiz was on the ropes. He had already squandered a three-run lead in what manager Sam Perlozzo deemed an important start in assessing the veteran's future in the rotation. He did not return to the mound after a delay that lasted nearly an hour and a half. Did the club see enough to decide his days in the Orioles' rotation are numbered?

R. Johnson, 45, reaches one-year deal with Giants baseball The Big Unit is heading home to the San Francisco Bay Area. Randy Johnson and the Giants agreed to a one-year contract yesterday, meaning the pitcher, 45, will go for his 300th win with a new team. Johnson, a 21-year big league veteran who spent the past two seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks, was born in Walnut Creek, Calif., about 30 minutes from the Giants' waterfront ballpark. The five-time Cy Young Award winner has 295 victories after going 11-10 with a 3.91 ERA in 30 starts last season.

There's living right, and living at the right time. Meet Barry Zito - Zen guy, musician, would-be actor, dater of starlets, collector of stuffed animals and a man very definitely living both right and at the right time. Zito, the consistently fine left-hander formerly of the Oakland Athletics, has just agreed to a seven-year, $126 million deal with the San Francisco Giants. This staggering contract is the richest ever awarded a pitcher, which results in three immediate conclusions: Zito is the most fortunate pitcher in baseball history, Scott Boras has again proved to be the greatest agent in baseball history and the Giants are the dumbest organization in baseball history, or at least this week.

Ryan swings, misses with comparison One can only sit back and marvel at the unbridled stupidity of professional football players and coaches. In a column by Mike Preston ["Opponents in no rush to throw near Reed," Oct. 28], Rex Ryan, defensive coach for the Ravens, is high in praise of the Ravens' defensive back, Ed Reed. Good old Rex tells us that Reed is in the same league as Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants. To quote Rex Ryan: "I compare Ed Reed to Barry Bonds and the year he hit like 73 home runs."

Rodrigo Lopez's 2006 season has seemed like a miniature reflection of his team's. He has struggled more than he has thrived. The talk around town says he might be discarded soon.

THE TIME has arrived. The official non-waiver trade deadline isn't until July 31, but the speculation season is upon us. What will the next six weeks bring? Who will get that extra piece to put them into the postseason? Which big names will be dealt? What will the Orioles do? One general manager speculates that there will be some movement, and some recognizable names will switch uniforms, but it won't be as exciting as last summer when Nomar Garciaparra, Carlos Beltran and Orlando Cabrera, among others, were traded.
