Right fielder Bobby Bonilla probably will be tied to the Orioles for at least one more year, unless players and owners reach a labor agreement soon.Bonilla has been under the impression all summer that he would become a free agent after this season. However, Bonilla was told by his agent, Dennis Gilbert, yesterday that this may not happen because of service time the players lost during the strike of 1994-1995."We are aware of [the Orioles'] position," Gilbert said yesterday, "but we don't care to comment any further at this time.

There is nothing quite so ugly as a good baseball team playing a bad game. Exhibit A, the Orioles, losing 11-3 to the Chicago White Sox last night.Mike Mussina pitched poorly, his worst outing since July. The Orioles' defense was lousy and lackluster, and in a complete departure from the last month, they gave away runs.Chicago right-hander Alex Fernandez can take responsibility for shutting down the Orioles, holding them to three hits, only one after the first inning. But even so, they looked flat, reminiscent of their play in May and June, and it cost them.

Jesse Orosco, Orioles relieverThe five toughest hitters:1. Chili Davis. "He's just absolutely destroyed me. Doubles, singles, homers, whatever it takes."2. Danny Tartabull. "He's hit me very hard. He's the only guy I've allowed three homers to in my career."3. Harold Reynolds. "He's got like eight or nine hits against me in 10 at-bats. He wouldn't try to drive the ball off me. He'd hit it wherever the pitch would be."4. Andre Dawson. "He's always been so aggressive. You can throw him a good pitch, down and in, and he's such a good hitter where he's still going to be able to drive the pitch somewhere."

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The "Pine Tar Controversy" it wasn't.The Baltimore Orioles caught Kansas City Royals outfielder Danny Tartabull using an illegal bat on Thursday night, but were unable to take advantage of the situation.Tartabull was using a bat produced by a Japanese manufacturer (Zett) that is not approved for major-league play. If he had gotten TC on base in the opener of the four-game series at Royals Stadium, the Orioles were prepared to challenge the bat and -- if necessary -- protest the game.

BOSTON -- Danny Darwin led a day of firsts for the Boston Red Sox.Darwin earned his first American League victory in five years, Tom Brunansky, Wade Boggs and Mike Marshall hit their first homers and Jeff Reardon got his first 1991 save yesterday in the Red Sox' 5-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals.Along the way, the Red Sox also got their first runs after a 22-inning drought that began with consecutive shutout losses to Cleveland.Embarrassed in lasting less than two innings against Cleveland last Thursday, Darwin was determined to turn boos to cheers.

NEW YORK -- The toughest part of signing a $27.5-million free-agent contract, being asked to carry a ballclub, yearning for recognition as one of baseball's elite players and having to do it on the bright stage that is New York is the furniture. You see, Danny Tartabull has none, at least none of his own yet.His new home in Saddle River, N.J., has some pieces of rental furniture. But they are so few in number that Tartabull had to laugh when he described the decor as unintentionally minimalistic.

With so much at stake, a playoff berth, the idea of the Orioles reverting back to their form of May and June seemed preposterous. Guys not running hard? Lack of intensity? Impossible.But for whatever reason, the Orioles played the first five innings of last night's game as if they were out of any race and merely finishing out their schedule, and the lethargy cost them. The White Sox foiled Mike Mussina's first attempt to win his 20th game, knocking out the Orioles' ace in the fourth inning in an 11-3 Chicago victory, before 47,342.

The landscape of the American League East changed dramatically Friday, like the San Andreas Fault shifting the division's relative powers. Weaknesses became strengths, the first-place team suddenly looks like a loser, and the Orioles have emerged as the front-runner.The revised predictions:1. Orioles. Best defensive team, best pitching among AL East contenders, serviceable offense.2. Yankees. Best hitting among AL East contenders, average defense, very good pitching.3. Boston Red Sox. Worst defense in AL, a pitching staff in tatters, and the inherent knowledge that somehow, they are always supposed to fail (and don't underestimate the importance of that last part)

Although not thought of in the same ecclesiastical sense, there's a similarity in the philosophies of George Steinbrenner and Father Flanagan, who are famous in different ways, in that they espouse an identical personal belief:"There's no such thing as a bad boy."Steinbrenner believes in rescuing adult delinquents, which is an admirable quality, and offering them the opportunity to become productive citizens. He gets them into rehabilitation programs with his New York Yankees . . . especially if there's even a remote hope they might be able to pitch or hit.It's a possibility, should the price be right, that Steinbrenner's next reclamation project will be Darryl Strawberry, who has had bouts with drugs and even a jam with the Internal Revenue Service -- the same kind of difficulty that sent Pete Rose off to pull time in prison.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Danny Tartabull has survived three years of potential turmoil with the New York Yankees without his placid nature becoming the least bit disturbed.There was the night at Camden Yards in September 1992 when he had nine RBI in a blowout of the Orioles and declined a chance at breaking or tying the major-league record of 12 RBIs in a game by allowing manager Buck Showalter to remove him from the lineup in the late innings as the game got out of hand.There was the night in Milwaukee in September 1993 when the Yankees were trying to stay in the American League East race with Toronto and owner George Steinbrenner suggested Tartabull needed to assert himself more and not be so quick to come out of the lineup because of minor injuries, a charge the outfielder-DH has faced most of his 11 seasons in the majors.

NEW YORK -- Most major-league pitchers will agree that it's difficult, if not impossible, to establish all of their pitches in the first inning.Arthur Rhodes has learned that lesson the hard way several times, most recently yesterday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.And it's a lesson he most likely will have to learn a few times at Triple-A Rochester.With Rhodes, it's a question of getting both of his pitches established, because he's basically a two-pitch pitcher -- fastball and breaking ball.
