CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The numbers when projected over a full season are even better than last year, when outfielder Danny Clyburn was an International League All-Star.Still, Clyburn remains on the waiting list for the Orioles' outfield, locked in at Triple-A Rochester, where he has little more to prove on offense.Other Red Wings outfielders have been summoned to Baltimore -- Jesus Tavarez and Lyle Mouton, for instance -- and Clyburn, a member of the 40-man Orioles roster, is hoping to follow.

Brad Pennington, OriolesWho has the best-looking uniforms and caps, and why?Cincinnati's got the best, with their sleeveless. First off, they were my favorite team when I was growing up, and they look awesome. They've got the red outlining and the white pinstripe in the front. That's just a great look to me.I like the Yankees, because they've pretty much been the same since Day 1. They've got a lot of history to them. They never put the names on their shirts. They've never changed, and it's still a nice-looking uniform after all these years.

* Don't rule out Brad Pennington, who started at Single-A and is now at Triple-A, in the Orioles' search for another left-handed reliever. Speaking of which, it's hard to believe that after going 84 games with only one left-hander, the Orioles are willing to risk losing Jose Mesa to add Pat Clements. They wouldn't have made that deal before spring training, when Mesa didn't even figure into their plans.* Milwaukee's Bill Wegman suddenly has challenged Ben McDonald as the American League's leading provider of home runs.

MINNEAPOLIS -- If the Orioles were throwing shutouts, pitching coach Mike Flanagan could show up at the park each day and sip some coffee, watch the Cubs game and occasionally switch over to see how the NBA playoffs are going.But the ERA of the bullpen before last night's game against Minnesota was 13.50, and this is a busy time for Flanagan. He swung a chair around and sat directly in front of the locker of the struggling Alan Mills, and they talked. He chatted with Brad Pennington, Armando Benitez.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The competition for jobs in the Orioles outfield appears to be limited to right-field candidates Luis Mercedes, Chito Martinez and Rule V draftee Sherman Obando, but manager Johnny Oates has a caveat.Don't count out Triple-A player Jack Voigt.Voigt, who made a brief visit to the major leagues last year, does not figure to compete for the starting right-field job, but he is the kind of player Oates would like to have around when he needs to spell Brady Anderson in left.Oates doesn't know Voigt that well, but he has been impressed with what he has seen and heard of him during the first few days of camp.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The basic refrain in the Orioles' clubhouse after their bullpen collapsed in a 7-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins last night is that this is just a temporary problem, something very finite.New manager Phil Regan said it; relievers Alan Mills and Brad Pennington said it.If they're right, then, they can look upon these first two days of the season and laugh. If they're wrong, well . . . they can forget about competing with the New York Yankees or Toronto Blue Jays.The pitching problems were augmented last night by two Cal Ripken errors, the first time he committed multiple errors in almost two years.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- At first glance, the idea of making Curtis Goodwin the Orioles' leadoff hitter and regular center fielder appears risky, perhaps even dangerous. But at least Phil Regan thinks it's a plan worth exploring.Regan's excitement over Goodwin reflects the sea change in philosophy that takes place under any new manager. Johnny Oates' favorites were overachieving veterans. Regan fell in love with a prospect in winter ball.The contrast is nothing short of stunning. Oates would have viewed Goodwin as just another young player who might get him fired, and banished him to Triple-A.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The bruise is almost gone now, though it's still easy to tell where the line drive struck Brad Pennington, rebuilding Rochester Red Wings reliever.It nailed him on the left temple. Sent him to the ground, where he stayed motionless for what seemed like forever to those at hushed Silver Stadium.A few minutes later, Pennington walked off the mound without assistance and headed for the hospital for a few hours. Five days later, he was back on the mound for Rochester."Horrible," Pennington said of the experience.

SEATTLE -- Different city, same inning, same hitter, same result, same question put to Orioles manager Johnny Oates.Why didn't you bring in left-handed reliever Jim Poole to face Ken Griffey?Oates had left-handed reliever Brad Pennington pitch to Griffey the first time, lefty starter Jamie Moyer the second time, Poole neither time.Griffey and Jay Buhner hit back-to-back home runs in the eighth inning Friday night at the Kingdome, leading the Seattle Mariners past the Orioles, 5-4. Griffey's home run, off Moyer, traveled 442 feet and landed in the seats beyond the center field fence.
