FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles did most of their damage offensively yesterday when they were doing the very least.Four consecutive walks by Florida Marlins left-hander Armando Almanza in the fifth inning followed leadoff singles by B. J. Surhoff and Lenny Webster and helped the Orioles to a 6-1 victory in their home exhibition opener.The game was scoreless when Almanza entered and shook up the proceedings. A balk moved Surhoff to second, and Webster's single gave the Orioles a 1-0 lead.

Before I get into this week's column, I'm taking a minute to fill out an All-Star ballot at mlb.com, with some interesting results. After three weeks of the season, you'd be hard-pressed to find a first baseman worthy of representing the AL at this year's game in Detroit. Pretty sad. Chicago's Paul Konerko (seven HRs, .236 average) and Texas' Mark Texeira (five HRs, .229 average) both have big power numbers. But in a surprise move, I'm going with Toronto's Eric Hinske, who's hitting a respectable .290 with three HRs, 13 RBIs and a couple of steals.

Last Oct. 3, with the Orioles playing their final home game at Camden Yards, Jeff Wilson became engaged to his fiancee, Susan. Then an Arizona Diamondbacks farmhand, Wilson didn't know that he was soon to become Orioles property. "The mascot came by and gave her two dozen roses and everything," said the Bowie Baysox left-hander, who ranks seventh in the Double-A Eastern League with a 2.72 ERA. "Two months after that, the Orioles took me in the Rule 5 draft. It was ironic, almost eerie."
