Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman isn't sure why it is happening, but he knows he needs to be better early in games if he's going to continue his ascent as a major league starter. On Sunday, in the Orioles' 5-2 loss to the Houston Astros, Tillman walked the first two batters he faced and then gave up a three-run homer to Jason Castro to immediately put his team down three runs. Tillman didn't allow a run during the remainder of his five-inning outing, but it didn't matter. The outcome was determined after the first three batters.

With the evident agenda of President Barack Obama to make friends of our enemies and to make enemies of our allies, it was understandable that he would not only shake hands with Raul Castro but even exchange pleasantries with that Cuban dictator ( "Obama and Castro," Dec. 13). With little regard for the history or the reasons for isolating Cuba and a total lack of understanding of Latin American politics, President Obama has given the seal of approval to a communist regime hostile to the U.S. and engaged in subverting our friends in the region.

The Orioles continue to make adjustments to their shortstop position, acquiring Juan Castro from the Colorado Rockies' organization yesterday for Triple-A infielder Mike McCoy and placing him on the 25-man roster. And they might not be finished. Castro, 36, would be the sixth player to start at shortstop for the Orioles this season. One of the others, Freddie Bynum, was sent outright to Norfolk and has 72 hours to accept his assignment or become a free agent. The trade was part of a busy day of roster shuffling for the Orioles, who also returned pitcher Randor Bierd from his injury rehabilitation assignment in the minors and activated him from the disabled list.

Despite taunts from leftt and right, President Clinton appears on course in preventing a repeat of the massive Mariel boatlift that brought 128,000 Cubans to our shores on short notice in 1980.Although the president's critics fretted that his tightening of the economic embargo against Fidel Castro's regime would only increase the flow of refugees, quite the opposite has occurred. The administration's determination to intercept the Cuban rafters before they get to Florida and detain them in tent camps on Guantanamo has substantially reduced the number of asylum-seekers willing to risk their lives in shark-infested waters.

HAVANA -- Cuban leader Fidel Castro acknowledged yesterday that he has lost 41 pounds since undergoing intestinal surgery more than a month ago and reiterated that he faces a lengthy convalescence. But the 80-year-old leader said "the most critical moment" of his health crisis has passed. He vowed to meet with visiting dignitaries in the next few days, apparently referring to the 14th summit of nonaligned nations that opens in Havana next week. "Today, I recover at a satisfactory pace," Castro said in a statement in the Communist Party newspaper Granma.

HAVANA -- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced that he would fly to Cuba last night to celebrate Fidel Castro's 80th birthday today with the ailing leader. The announcement came the same day that the Cuban Communist Party newspaper gave the most upbeat assessment of Castro's health since the leader announced July 31 that he had undergone surgery and temporarily ceded power to his younger brother, Raul, the defense minister. The front-page article in the Granma newspaper said that Castro is walking, talking and sitting up, as well as undergoing physical therapy.

It's ironic that Republicans, who seem to spend all of their time finding things to criticize President Barack Obama for rather than doing anything positive to help our country, are now up in arms regarding his handshake with Cuban President Raul Castro ("Handshake shakes up foes, friends of Cuba," Dec. 11). Without going into the pros and cons of whether it was appropriate or not, consider the milieu in which this diplomatic incident took place. It was at a ceremony eulogizing the extraordinary life of the man whose singular accomplishment was to rise above the intense animosity and vitriol in South Africa during the apartheid era, and who by embracing his implacable foes, brought peace and a spirit of reconciliation to his country, thereby avoiding what could have been a massive, bloody civil war. Nelson Mandela's life was a remarkably vivid demonstration of the benefits of finding the road to peace and cooperation as opposed to continuing confrontation.

Now that the Orioles have hired Dave Wallace as their pitching coach, the focus turns to naming a bullpen coach. That search hasn't officially started yet, according to an industry source, but it will begin within the next few days. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that Wallace, who has a decade of major league pitching coach experience and was the Atlanta Braves' minor league pitching coordinator for the past four seasons, will have plenty of input in selecting a bullpen coach and will probably make the final call.

The suicide of former school bus driver and Ohio kidnapper Ariel Castro comes with mixed sentiments, but it serves as a reminder that many other predators like him still live and work among us. People across America can no longer claim, "It doesn't happen here. " The Cleveland kidnappings are a horrific but timely reminder that sexual slavery exists in our neighborhoods and in every state across America. We just aren't looking. And we aren't speaking out. Our young adults are the ones paying the price.

With the baseball season heading into its final quarter, the Orioles likely will be making their pennant push without pitching coach Rick Adair, who was granted a leave of absence for personal reasons Friday and was replaced, at least temporarily, by bullpen coach Bill Castro. Castro's spot will be filled by former Orioles left-hander Scott McGregor, who had been the pitching rehab coordinator in Sarasota for the past two seasons. Manager Buck Showalter held a brief, closed-door meeting with his team before the clubhouse opened to the media Friday afternoon to, among other things, discuss the staffing changes.

No round of professional golf can be played on the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club without, it seems, comparing it to the events of two years ago, to the 111th U.S. Open in which Rory McIlroy appeared to make a mockery of the place. So here came Thursday, the first round of the AT&T National, just two weeks removed from the most recent U.S. Open, held at Merion Golf Club. The difference between a major and a regular PGA Tour event can be found in the length of the rough, the speed of the greens, the distance from tee to flag, the tension in the players' necks.
