Curtis Goodwin (above) is coming to the big leagues. The Rochester Red Wings center fielder was flying to Baltimore last night and is expected to be with the Orioles tonight when they face Oakland.Goodwin, who had impressed Orioles manager Phil Regan in winter ball and was given a chance of making the Opening Day roster, may replace Andy Van Slyke, a candidate for the disabled list, or Damon Buford, who is hitting .063.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Every spring, it's the same refrain: Boy, the Orioles' lineup looks great. This team will hit, that's for sure.Then the season starts.And, inevitably, the offense fails to deliver.Overrating your club is a rite of spring -- not just in Baltimore, but every major-league city.Why should this spring be different?Well, the Orioles added an offensive-oriented manager, a hitting coach whose teams won two batting titles and, last but not least, two .300 hitters.L Their attack could be as potent as Boston's and Cleveland's.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- No one thinks of Brady Anderson as the Orioles' signature player. That distinction belongs to Cal Ripken, for the rest of this century, and probably forever.Still, this will be Anderson's ninth season in Baltimore. Frank Robinson didn't play for the Orioles as long. Neither did Mike Cuellar nor Don Buford, Bobby Grich nor Don Baylor.In fact, only 23 other major-leaguers have been with their current teams since the day the Orioles acquired Anderson from Boston for Mike Boddicker July 30, 1988.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Nothing has really surprised Phil Regan in his first season as a major-league manager. From his time spent as a pitching coach, he had gotten a taste for the pressures inherent in the job, dealing with players and the media and such.About the only thing he didn't really know about, Regan acknowledged yesterday, was the relative abilities of his players. Because Regan's first real look at the Orioles came in a shortened spring training, he feels as if he didn't have enough time to get a good evaluation of his players.

The Orioles' negotiations with free-agent right-hander Bill Swift reached the serious stage yesterday. How serious? The Orioles had him in Baltimore for a physical examination, took him to lunch and gave him a tour of Camden Yards.Swift and agent Craig Fenech visited with Orioles general manager Roland Hemond, assistant GM Frank Robinson and attorney Russell Smouse. Hemond would not say whether the Orioles made Swift an offer, but he did say the team remained interested in signing him after he completed his physical.

Whether he'd consider managing a team:"I think it would be a tremendous challenge. Am I qualified? If surrounded by talented people. The reason I was a good pitcher is because I was surrounded by talented players."[But] managing is different now like this season one of the Oriole coaches [Al Bumbry] asked Curtis Goodwin to take some vTC [practice] balls off the wall in Fenway Park, to see how the balls would bounce. Curtis said no. He didn't think he needed to do that."If I was managing, I would have gone to Curtis Goodwin and said: 'Listen, you have two choices.

Curtis GoodwinWhat he would be doing if there were no strike: Goodwin, 22, would be trying to justify the faith that new manager Phil Regan has in him. Regan has made it clear that the left-handed hitter is the front-runner to be the Opening Day center fielder. Goodwin, who hit .286 at Double-A, had a terrific off-season, in the Arizona Fall League and in Venezuela.Where he is instead: Goodwin is in Los Angeles, waiting for a resolution to the strike.How he's filling his time: Goodwin just began working out, lifting weights and taking a few swings.

VIERA, Fla. -- Jimmy Haynes? Tall kid from Georgia. Never says a word. "A green pea" when the Orioles drafted him in 1991, according to scouting director Gary Nickels.Jimmy Haynes? Mention the name, and Larry Pitts starts to chuckle. Pitts is the baseball coach at Haynes' alma mater, Troup County (Ga.) High School. He first met Haynes in sixth grade, and remembers him as, well, a flake."He's a little bit off the wall," Pitts said. "He's got a weird sense of humor. He'd be cutting up a lot on the bus and in the dugout when he wasn't pitching."

An Orioles official attempted to contact Padres president Larry Lucchino on Friday for clarification on the status of San Diego general manager Randy Smith, two sources have indicated.Lucchino, however, has not returned the phone call, and probably won't until tomorrow. Club officials in San Diego say the Padres want to get through the last weekend of the regular season before reaching some sort of resolution with Smith, who turned in his resignation last week.The Orioles sought permission earlier in September to interview Smith as a possible successor to general manager Roland Hemond.

The Orioles are now in full audition mode, looking ahead to 1996, with less than three weeks remaining in the season, and this is who's on display:* Bobby Bonilla, at third base. "I'd like to see him for a stretch of time, and see if he can play third base," said Orioles manager Phil Regan. "Personally, I think he can, if we just leave him there, instead of switching him around."The Orioles' desire to get a long look at Bonilla at third probably is affected by the scarcity of third basemen in the open market.

Their bullpen still is a weak link, their playoff hopes are slim and none, and the Boston Red Sox have a virtual lock on first place.But the Orioles' five-run eighth inning last night finally gave the 40,585 fans at Camden Yards something to cheer about other than Cal Ripken's 2,135th consecutive game, a 10-7 victory that sent the Red Sox into their first four-game losing streak of the season.The victory also kept the Orioles -- who are one loss or Boston win away from elimination -- alive in the AL East race.

CLEVELAND -- What can be salvaged from what remains of the Orioles' disappointing season is knowledge. For instance, manager Phil Regan wants to learn more about Curtis Goodwin, in the event he is the manager again in 1996.And Regan wants Curtis Goodwin to learn more about Curtis Goodwin, in the event Goodwin is the center fielder and leadoff hitter in 1996. Every game is a study session, and Regan wants Goodwin cramming.He and the Orioles flunked yesterday in a 2-1 loss to the AL Central champion Cleveland Indians.

He has the speed and facial features of Otis Nixon, the pencil mustache and style of Cab Calloway. There's one other aspect of Orioles rookie center fielder Curtis Goodwin, though, that makes him a perfect carbon copy of one Rickey Henderson.The man does not lack for confidence.The big leagues to Curtis Goodwin, after two days, is getting a couple of hits a day, stealing a base, starting a couple of rallies. He did that again yesterday at Camden Yards, in the Orioles' 9-5 victory over the Athletics, their fourth straight win.Cal Ripken hit a grand slam, one of three Orioles homers in the fifth inning, and Mike Mussina pitched well with a big lead and picked up his fourth win of the year.

Earl Weaver lived and died by the three-run homer, but Phil Regan cannot live on power alone.Regan needs speed.The Orioles are 14-1 when they steal a base. Curtis Goodwin stole his fifth last night, tying him with Brady Anderson and Manny Alexander for the team lead, and the Orioles won, 6-2."I guess the manager ought to give the steal sign more often," Regan said.With Goodwin, Anderson, Alexander and Jeffrey Hammonds, Regan has speedsters at both ends of his lineup. It's a lineup that entered last night's game second in the American League in home runs, but one that can steal bases, too.For Regan, speed and power go together like crabs and beer.

He just didn't have that many hits to show for the way he was hitting the ball.Phil Regan * EVEN * He'll be with the Orioles for the rest of the year. Beyond that, no guarantees.Armando Benitez * DOWN * If this year is a learning experience for him, as Regan says, then he deserves extra credit for the pounding he has taken.

NEW YORK -- A month ago, two hits for Curtis Goodwin would've been no big deal. Multi-hit games were a habit for the Orioles' rookie center fielder.But his average dropped more than 60 points and he was benched. Goodwin was back in the lineup yesterday, after being benched for most of the last 10 days, and he had two hits for the first time since July 15."I felt like I did when I first came up," said Goodwin, who also stole a base for the 19th time this year.How he felt then, he said, was confident, cocky.
