NEW YORK - Roger Clemens decided against retirement - again - and the Houston Astros certainly made it worth his while to stick around for one more season. Clemens and the Astros avoided an arbitration hearing yesterday by agreeing to a one-year, $18 million contract, a record salary for a pitcher. The seven-time Cy Young Award winner eclipsed the mark held by the New York Mets' Pedro Martinez, who earned $17.5 million last year in his final season with the Boston Red Sox. "I'm ready for the challenge," Clemens said at a news conference in Houston.

Minnesota Twins pitcher Johan Santana took a look around Venezuela and realized the significance of his accomplishment. A nation in political turmoil had people dancing in the streets. Santana, 25, became the first Venezuelan to win the Cy Young Award yesterday, as voters made him a unanimous selection for the American League honor, recognizing a season in which he won AL Pitcher of the Month honors for July, August and September. Santana finished 20-6 and led the league in ERA (2.61)

As the Orioles began filing into the clubhouse yesterday morning, their former pitching coach was packing his bags for the trip home to Boca Raton, Fla. It appears that Mark Wiley has elected to take the high road on his way out of town. Wiley was informed before Saturday's game that Ray Miller had replaced him as pitching coach. Wiley was reassigned to scouting duties within the organization, but he asked for more time to consider the offer. Team executives Jim Beattie and Mike Flanagan broke the news to Wiley, who cleaned out his coaches office locker and left the ballpark before batting practice.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The male bonding commences with a few handshakes and an exchange of pleasantries. It's mostly small talk, an icebreaker before the real introductions begin. The pitchers in the Orioles' spring training camp are curious about their new catcher, and he's just as curious about them. They know all about Javy Lopez's 43-homer season, the division titles, the 20-game winners he's guided behind home plate. They don't need a name tag or baseball card to recognize him. If only Lopez had the same advantages.

The offer the Orioles made Sidney Ponson on Saturday includes a package of incentives that would pay him an additional $1 million a year if he wins the Cy Young Award, sources close to the talks said yesterday. The Orioles offered Ponson a three-year, $15 million guaranteed contract with a club option for 2007. Over the first three years of the contract, Ponson could collect about $2.5 million in additional performance incentives based on his number of starts and innings pitched. There are also built-in incentives for All-Star appearances.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Baseball's winter meetings meandered through another uneventful day as frustrated player agents milled around the Opryland Hotel trying to market players that no one seems to want. It is an odd spectacle. Multiple Cy Young Award winner Greg Maddux, who was 16-6 with a 2.62 ERA last year, remains unsigned and seemingly underpursued. Superstar catcher Ivan Rodriguez has garnered public interest from just the Orioles and the Chicago Cubs. Dozens of lesser players sit home wondering when - or if - the phone is going to ring.

Mike Flanagan's journey through the Orioles' organization has taken him from the pitching mound to the coaches' office, and from the broadcast booth to the owner's ear. Now he's ready to get into the jewelry business. Sitting with reporters at the Camden Yards warehouse yesterday, Flanagan removed his World Series ring from his right hand and spun it on a table. He doesn't usually wear it, but the moment seemed right with his introduction as one half of the replacement for Syd Thrift, the club's outgoing vice president of baseball operations.

The Toronto Blue Jays have unloaded potential MVP Shawn Green and former Cy Young Award winner Pat Hentgen during the past three weeks, but it would be foolhardy to assume that one of the Orioles' chief division rivals is downsizing again.Of course, if the Blue Jays succeed in adding big-swinging first baseman Carlos Delgado to the list of departed stars, they will enter the 2000 season with limited offensive potential -- but there are indications that Delgado may remain."As far as I'm concerned, he's going to bat fourth behind [Raul]

Pedro Martinez's summer of dominance was rewarded yesterday when the Boston Red Sox ace was unanimously named recipient of the AL Cy Young Award. Leading a lapped field, the Orioles' Mike Mussina finished a distant second.Martinez produced one of the most overpowering seasons of the game's explosive postmodern era by going 23-4 with a 2.07 ERA and 313 strikeouts in 213 1/3 innings. Within a climate of relentless slugging, Martinez silenced American League hitters (he gave up just nine homers)

It doesn't seem fair, really. The eight major-league teams that survived the long, hot summer now have to put their impressive seasons on the line in a best-of-five Division Series format that places a premium on the game's most dominant starting pitchers.Not a bad time to be Boston Red Sox manager Jimy Williams or Arizona Diamondbacks skipper Buck Showalter.The Red Sox slipped into the playoffs as the American League wild-card team, but they don't figure to be a decided underdog when they open the playoffs against the Cleveland Indians tomorrow night at Jacobs Field.
