Just when it looked like injuries and advancing age might finally knock the Atlanta Braves off their National League East perch, they're back with a vengeance. And they have brought reinforcements. The Braves now have the second-best record in the National League (behind the St. Louis Cardinals) and are beginning to run away with their 14th consecutive division title. They are doing it with an outfield of relative no-names and Most Valuable Player candidate Andruw Jones. One of those obscure players, though, may soon become a familiar face.

For being a hometown product, Brian Jordan never seems to pass up a chance to aggravate the Orioles. Sometimes it's subtle, sometimes it's in full view of 38,569 fans. He could have signed with them four years ago, providing a nice local touch to their winter dealings, but instead chose the Atlanta Braves and closer proximity to his Alpharetta, Ga., residence. The Orioles countered by signing Albert Belle, a move that backfired with such force, the franchise still is covered in soot. After shaking hands yesterday with players on the high school all-star teams that once showcased his amateur talents, Jordan rattled the Orioles by driving in both runs against them in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 2-1 victory at Camden Yards.

Atlanta Braves Record, finish: 96-66, 1st. Manager: Bobby Cox, 20th season with Braves, 24th overall. Payroll: $80 million. Hot seat: Raul Mondesi. At 34 this could be his last, best chance to reclaim a once-promising career. Best case: Despite another round of offensive losses, Braves magic holds up for a 14th straight year. ... Rafael Furcal, energized by his potential free-agent status, has a career walk year. ... Tim Hudson, the new long-term rotation anchor, wins 20-plus games and overwhelms NL hitters unfamiliar with him. Worst case: Chipper Jones' hamstring woes of a year ago return.

NEW YORK - Brady Anderson would have moved to left field. Albert Belle would have signed with another club. Rafael Palmeiro might have stayed with the Orioles. That is the domino effect that could have occurred if Baltimore native Brian Jordan had signed with the Orioles instead of the Atlanta Braves in November 1998. "It changes history," said Frank Wren, the Orioles' former general manager. "It changes the whole dynamic of our club a year ago, the whole dynamic of the team going forward.

Vince Montoute knows what it's like to be on the short end -- and he doesn't like it.For the past two seasons, the senior defensive back has played on 8-2 football teams at Woodlawn, only to have the Warriors miss the Class 4A state playoffs by the slimmest of margins."

CardinalsWhere they're coming from: St. Louis improved from 62-81 to 88-74, good enough for first place. The Cardinals beat the Padres in the playoffs before squandering a three-games-to-one lead to the Braves in the NLCS.Where they're going: The post-Ozzie Smith era will begin with a back flip into the playoffs, if only by default, in what is easily baseball's weakest division.Key newcomers: 2B Delino DeShields, RP Lance Painter, C Tom Lampkin.What could go right: DeShields proves he's the leadoff hitter who was 9-for-13 in first-inning at-bats this spring, not the batter who had an abysmal .288 on-base average last season in Los Angeles.

His wife Pam is due then, and Jordan hopes the schedule holds long enough to allow him to return to Atlanta in time for the event.

BravesThat was then: Brave new world? Not last year. Atlanta won a franchise-record 106 games and a seventh straight division title, swept the Cubs in the Division Series, then suffered another postseason collapse, losing to the Padres in the Championship Series.This is now: The Braves are heavy favorites in the East, where amazingly no team finished within nine games of any other in 1998, but they must play without clubhouse leader and 44-home-run hitter Andres Galarraga, who has lymphoma.
