Nov.19, 1991: "The whole season, it just seemed like I couldn't do anything wrong," Cal Ripken Jr. says in winning his second American League Most Valuable Player Award. Ripken (34 home runs, 114 RBIs, .323 batting average) edges slugger Cecil Fielder of the second-place Detroit Tigers. Says Fielder: "I've lost to somebody who played on a sixth-place team. It's a joke, as far as I'm concerned. " Nov. 21, 1977: Eddie Murray, 21, the Orioles' designated hitter and first baseman, takes AL Rookie of the Year honors after a stellar season in which he batted .283 with 27 home runs.

Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken should win the AL MVP award when tomorrow's vote is announced, according to those who responded to Friday's "It's Your Call" question.Of the 648 who responded, Ripken garnered a whopping 79 percent of the vote, while Minnesota's Kirby Puckett (9 percent), Detroit's Cecil Fielder (7 percent) and Toronto's Joe Carter (5 percent) were hardly noticed."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

He missed the first game of a doubleheader on May 29, 1982.* Cecil Fielder went from April 22 to Friday night before homering.* The Cleveland Indians were on a pace to make 188 errors.* San Diego's Fred McGriff has hit 30 or more home runs in each of the past four years -- but has yet to make an All-Star team.* It has been almost a year since the Chicago Cubs' Danny Jackson won a game (June 14, 1991).* Since 1973, the Oakland Athletics have had only one winning season at Fenway Park (they are 35-72 in that span after Friday's game)

Tigers updateThe Orioles are 2-4 against the Tigers and 0-3 at Tiger Stadium this season. The only thing riding on these games is the season series -- the teams play four at Tiger Stadium this week and end the year with three at Camden Yards.Neither the Tigers' hitting nor pitching has been respectable. The team is last in the league in batting average and hits, second to last in ERA and third to last in wins. Chad Curtis leads the Tigers offensively (.271 average, 19 home runs and 62 RBIs)

There is more to baseball than home runs, and A's outfielder Rickey Henderson has the American League's Most Valuable Player award to prove it.Henderson won the award yesterday. And he received it ahead of Cecil Fielder, who hit 51 homers for the Detroit Tigers.Fielder was the first player to hit 50 or more homers in a season since George Foster hit 52 for the Cincinnati Reds in 1977, but Henderson was recognized for his overall contributions in helping the A's to a third consecutive AL championship.

The Orioles will go into New York for the start of an eight-game trip tonight without momentum or their ace. They have a chance to regain only one before returning home.Forced to stay behind because of injuries suffered Thursday, Mike Mussina was placed on the disabled list yesterday for the second time in five weeks. The move is retroactive to Friday, meaning he will be eligible to return May 30 when the Orioles are home against Texas, though he won't be ready.Mussina (4-2, 2.52 ERA) was scheduled to start tonight opposite the Yankees' David Cone, but that changed when he was hit in the face by a line drive from Cleveland's Sandy Alomar, suffering a deep gash over his right eye and a fractured nose.

ATLANTA -- John Smoltz had to envision it something like this. Had to see himself going eight innings, giving up no earned runs, saying his own fond farewell to retiring Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.But not exactly like this.In his visualization, the Braves win the final game in the old ballpark. They don't get blindsided by New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte.Smoltz could not have pitched much better. He gave up just four hits and struck out 10, but an error in the outfield led to one unearned run and that was enough to spoil the final -- and perhaps finest -- game of his greatest season.

EDDIE MURRAY has come home to the Baltimore Orioles. From the rapturous applause he received on July 22 when he came to bat in an Orioles uniform for the first time since 1988, Baltimore fans seem to love having him back. And Murray was even seen to smile as he tipped his hat following his 492nd home run in the sixth inning. Two nights later, he hit 493, tying Lou Gehrig for 15th on the all-time homer list, and another homer on Thursday put him in front of Gehrig.Murray's return to the team for which he performed so marvelously for 12 years provides a good time to take an in-depth look at his remarkable career.

* The Cubs didn't figure to make much of an attempt to re-sign P Rick Sutcliffe after a couple of injury-filled seasons, but he may have changed their minds with a strong performance in his 6 starts since coming off the disabled list. He's 3-1 with a 2.21 ERA in those 6 games.* Just to put the recent 13-strikeout performance by converted Indians reliever Doug Jones into perspective, only 2 other pitchers -- Nolan Ryan and Dwight Gooden -- have struck out more than 13 in a game this year. Jones has made 3 major-league starts since he made the transition from stopper to starter, and he has won them all.* Angels reserve OF Dave Gallagher has 29 RBI this year, and 14 of them have come against the Orioles and White Sox, the 2 teams that got rid of him last year.

Johnny Oates, as detail-oriented as major-league managers come, had to admit he was stumped this time.He knew the identity of his starting pitcher, Scott Klingenbeck. He just didn't have a clue as to his appearance. Oates saw two unfamiliar, young faces in the Orioles' clubhouse yesterday morning and figured he had found his man. He figured wrong."I started to go up to them and say, 'Which one of you is Scott?' Then I saw them picking up laundry," Oates said. "Scott hadn't arrived yet."He arrived in the major leagues yesterday, and no one with the Orioles ever will mistake a clubhouse attendant for him again.
