In case you missed it, the Colorado Rockies traded former Oriole Eli Marrero to the New York Mets for Kazuo Matsui and cash. It's now safe to say that Matsui was really, really over-hyped when he came to the United States. It's been a tough year for anyone named Matsui. I can think of at least two. Seeing so many comparisons between Brandon Fahey and Mark Belanger got me thinking about the left side of the Orioles' infield, back when Belanger and Brooks Robinson were collecting Gold Gloves.

For all the turbulence in the airline industry, flight attendant Laura Belanger's retirement plan is soaring. Despite pay and benefit cuts as her employer tried to right itself after filing for bankruptcy, she has maximized her company savings plan and diversified into real estate. At 42, her net worth is a comfortable $282,588. In February, her union ratified an agreement that locks in employer direct and matching retirement funds of up to 6 percent of salary in a 401(k)-style plan. The plan still isn't as rich as the original pension Belanger was expecting.

They call him "Blade." He's got long, flowing, jet black hair. And you would never know by looking at former Orioles shortstop Mark Belanger that he knew Cal Ripken when Junior was just a pup.Belanger chatted with the graying, balding Ripken yesterday in the Orioles' clubhouse. Ripken has credited Belanger with teaching him many of the fielding techniques that Ripken uses today."That's nice, I really appreciate that," said Belanger, an eight-time Gold Glove winner. "I'm just one of many, I'm sure.

Former Orioles shortstop Mark Belanger was an early arrival at Camden Yards yesterday, listening in as his son stood near home plate rehearsing the national anthem. Robert Belanger, 28, of Lutherville, sang the anthem before last night's game, as he had done here four years earlier."He's the singer in the family," said the elder Belanger, a Major League Baseball Players Association official. "He didn't get it from me."Belanger enjoys whatever success is achieved by Davey Johnson, his former Orioles roommate.

Mark Belanger considers it his good fortune that he invariably was with the right team at the right time during his 18 years in the big leagues.Most of those teams, of course, were the Orioles.Only twice was he with teams that finished lower than third, the Orioles of 1967 (tied for sixth) and 1978 (fourth). His only other non-Orioles team, the 1982 Los Angeles Dodgers, was second. Even when he was progressing through the Orioles' minor-league system, Belanger's teams were either first, second third.

In a book selecting baseball's best 100 players several years ago, author Maury Allen wrote: "His lifetime average is .228. He has 20 home runs in his career. He has batted under .200 four separate seasons and he once batted .186 with 53 hits as the regular shortstop for the Baltimore Orioles."What in the world is this Punch and Judy hitter doing with the big guys?"Did you ever see him field a ground ball? That's what Mark Belanger is doing on this list."Perfect.Quite simply put, Mr. Belanger was the finest fielding shortstop of his time.

After raising an estimated $10,000 for lung cancer research in each of the first two years of the Mark Belanger Celebrity Golf Classic, tournament organizers knew that a larger event was needed to increase awareness and donations toward finding a cure for the disease that took the life of the former Orioles shortstop in 1998. "We just felt like we could only raise so much money in one day. You've got to have an event to do more," Rob Belanger, the late player's son and chairman of the Belanger-Federico-Pitterich Foundation, recalled yesterday.

DELTONA, Fla. - A veteran probation officer and three of his supervisors were fired yesterday as a result of a major failure of the state corrections system that missed several opportunities to put behind bars the suspected ringleader in the vicious beating and stabbing deaths of six people last week. Troy Victorino, 27, a felon with a long and violent criminal history, met with his probation officer Thursday, hours before investigators say Victorino and three 18-year-old friends used aluminum baseball bats to bludgeon to death the six people in a Deltona home Friday.

DELTONA, Fla. - Dressed in black with scarves draped over their faces, four men armed with aluminum baseball bats burst into a house here and beat six people to death. Their motive: revenge over a missing XBox video game player and a bundle of clothes, Volusia County sheriff's deputies said yesterday. Investigators said that the Microsoft XBox, which retails for about $150, belonged to Troy Victorino and that he was bent on retaliating against the woman he blamed for its disappearance.

In the experienced hands of Paul Belanger, the long, slender balloons quickly take shape. Pulled from waist pouch and pumped full of air, they are knotted and twisted, looped and squeezed. For a minute, they writhe in mid-air like caterpillars and then -- as if by magic -- are transformed into a butterfly. Eight-year-old Katie Cooper, the birthday girl, is speechless. She has stood beside Belanger the whole time and yet somehow can't quite believe her eyes. The precious butterfly lands atop her head -- a winged crown -- for her family and friends to admire.
