Seated in the lower reserve seats along the right field line at Memorial Stadium, I was convinced it was going to happen. Another late-inning rally to win a game - this time for a World Series championship. In 1979, the season that gave birth to Orioles Magic, the home team was down by a run to the vaunted Pittsburgh Pirates. It was the eighth inning. The Orioles had loaded the bases, and Eddie Murray stepped to the plate. The crack of the bat caused right fielder Dave Parker to take a quick step toward the wall, and he nearly stumbled.

When it comes to All-Star Games, no one in Baltimore knows them better than Frank Robinson and Brooks Robinson, who appeared in 29 midseason classics.But when it came time for the Orioles legends to fill out a sample All-Star ballot yesterday during a news conference kicking off the voting process for the July 13 game, they had to admit the National League was a mystery to them."I don't know any of these guys playing second," said Brooks."You got me," said Frank.Eventually, they settled on the Houston Astros' Craig Biggio, but later they were just as baffled on NL third basemen and agreed on Dave Magadan of the Florida Marlins.

* BARRY BONDS -- The best player in the National League last year is the unhappiest player in the major leagues this year. Bonds has been feuding openly with the Pittsburgh Pirates organization since he lost his salary arbitration case.* DARREN DAULTON -- The Philadelphia Phillies gave Daulton a three-year contract worth $6.75 million and helped kick off another free agent free-for-all last November.

TORONTO -- The dynasty is about to be dismantled.The Oakland Athletics came up short in their 1992 run for the American League pennant, and now must face some hard economic facts. They cannot afford to bring the same team back for another try.This is not exactly hot news. The veterans on the club have viewed 1992 as the last hurrah right from Opening Day. The A's won four American League West titles, three pennants and a world championship the past five years, but success has come at a high price.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The 1992 Elias Baseball Analyst portrays Joe Orsulak's arm as a howitzer responsible for one of the greatest outfield explosions in the history of the game.We're truly sorry about this.But Joe, it just ain't so.Indeed, if Orsulak's arm truly commanded respect, he never would have compiled the 22 outfield assists that made his '91 season such a statistical freak.Statistics are the lifeblood of baseball, and heaven knows we all love the Analyst. But this is an example of numbers gone haywire.

When Dave Winfield was in the process of recovering from back surgery two years ago, he began to hear whispers that his baseball career was finished. And, as he watched the 1989 season flash by without him, Winfield made a promise to those who doubted him."I was determined not to fade into oblivion," Winfield recalled last night at Memorial Stadium. "I didn't want to end my career like that, in New York."Winfield takes apparent pleasure in knowing that his former boss and chief tormentor over 10 years, New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, is the one who has exited baseball's stage, banished from the game by commissioner Fay Vincent.
