SARASOTA, Fla. A writer was talking to Ron Karkovice."The guy," observed the writer, nodding toward Carlton Fisk's cubicle next door, "might go on forever."Karkovice, the other catcher, looked toward the cubicle, glanced for an instant at the ceiling, then back toward the cubicle. Then he spoke in a soft grumble."I know ..."He is 43. He might go on forever.How much longer? No one in baseball ducks a direct question better than Carlton Fisk. If there were a Hall of Fame for Excellence in Ducking, Carlton Fisk would be right there, just ahead of Warren Beatty.

The Pesky Pole got the best of the Orioles on Sunday afternoon. In the Orioles' 2-1 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park, the 100-year-old ballpark's fabled right-field corner played a huge part in two key plays. With the tying run on first in the top of the ninth inning, pinch hitter Jim Thome laced a line drive down the right-field line — it is just 302 feet down the line — that one-hopped over the short fence for a ground-rule double. "It's part of playing in different ballparks," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Quote: "It was like I was somebody important. I think when you play, you never really realize the impact you had." - Carlton Fisk, whose No. 27 was retired yesterday and hung on the right-field faM-gade next to Ted Williams'. It's a fact: The Angels are the last AL team to make their first visit to Comerica Park. Who's hot: The Indians' Manny Ramirez is batting .441 (30-for-68) during his 19-game hitting streak. Who's not: The Blue Jays have gone a season-long 143 at-bats without hitting a home run. On deck: All 25 of the Devil Rays' remaining games are against teams playing over .500.

Gary Allenson once served as backup catcher to Carlton Fisk in Boston. Now he's set to manage Triple-A Norfolk after spending last season guiding Rookie-level Bluefield. Allenson got his start managing in the New York Yankees' system and led the Orioles' former Triple-A affiliate in Ottawa to the International League playoffs in 2003 before leaving the organization for two years. What did it mean to you when the 2004 Red Sox ended The Curse? -- I'm happy they won it. New England fans are real tough on you when you play there.

The Orioles came back from Florida with a roster full of pleasant memories, even if the logistical aspects of spring training left something to be desired. The club that could do no right in 1991 could do little wrong during the Grapefruit League season, which only added to the anticipation of tomorrow's Opening Day festivities at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.The outlook for 1992 couldn't be brighter -- not without some personnel changes anyway. The Orioles seem ready to start the long climb back up the standings.
