PHILADELPHIA - The Cincinnati Reds are finding out that great expectations aren't always so great. The arrival of superstar Ken Griffey Jr. was supposed to turn last year's 96-win wonder into a dominant playoff team, but instead has magnified disappointment over a .500 start. Griffey has struggled to adjust to a new league. Fellow newcomer Dante Bichette is in a deep slump. The starting rotation needs a jump start. And all the while, the St. Louis Cardinals - the other greatly improved team in the National League Central - have been getting comfortable at the top of the standings.

Who is Jeffrey Hammonds? The Orioles asked that question for the better part of six seasons. And Hammonds couldn't answer. Who is he now? The everyday right fielder for the Colorado Rockies, batting .370 with 13 home runs and a career-high 56 RBIs in 50 games. Who was he then? A kid who played only 60 minor-league games. A kid who frequently was injured. A kid who didn't know how to be a major-leaguer. "I didn't have a feel for the game," Hammonds said last week. "In Baltimore, when I got hurt for an extended period of time, my skills diminished.

The Milwaukee Brewers already have had a very busy week. Owner Bud Selig was named to act as interim baseball commissioner on Wednesday and outfielder Robin Yount recorded his historic 3,000th hit later the same night. Now, they must refocus on a division race that could be decided in the next 10 days.Little more than three weeks remain of the regular season, so the series between the Brewers and Orioles that begins tonight at Camden Yards -- along with a four-game series between the same teams in Milwaukee next weekend -- could determine whether either club makes a serious run at the first-place Toronto Blue Jays.

The Cincinnati Reds are a long way from clinching the National League Central, but they have sent a definite message to the two clubs that have any hope of catching them.The Reds spent the long weekend pushing the Chicago Cubs to the brink of noncontention as they continued their cross-divisional battle with the Atlanta Braves for the best record in the National League. The second-place Houston Astros are in a better position to compete for the division title (or a wild-card berth) but they already have found out who's who in head-to-head competition.

CLEVELAND -- Thirty-four homers. Rafael Palmeiro is one short of the Orioles' highest total since 1979, two short of their highest total since '69, six short of only the third 40-homer season in club history.Forty is probably out of the question, but only because this is a 144-game season. When Palmeiro finally plays the full 162 for the Orioles, he might produce a season comparable to Frank Robinson's in 1966.A Triple Crown? That might be out of Palmeiro's reach in this offensive era. But a world championship?
