FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A degree of suspense entered the Orioles' clubhouse yesterday but checked any sense of tension at the door. Jerry Hairston and Delino DeShields stepped inside to be greeted by a supposedly uncertain situation at second base. Hairston brandished youthful exuberance. DeShields spoke with a veteran's calm cut by last season's lingering hurt. Beginning with today's first official workout by position players, Orioles manager Mike Hargrove begins sorting out a position that last year featured a mix of injury, bad feelings and discovery.

NEW YORK - Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts was aware that he has been in a pretty good groove at the plate lately and that his doubles total was mounting. After all, nearly 30 percent of his hits have gone for two bases. But the fact that he is vastly approaching a team record was breaking news to the Orioles' leadoff batter. With Roberts' third-inning double Saturday, his 43rd of the season, he moved into a tie with Roberto Alomar (1996) and Delino DeShields (2000) for third place on the team's all-time single-season list.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- For a utility infielder who often jokes about his limited playing time, Jeff Reboulet sure has a knack for finding his way into the Opening Day lineup.If happened in 1997 when second baseman Roberto Alomar was slapped with a five-game suspension to begin the season. And it could happen again next month, at the same position but for a different player and reason.With Delino DeShields out five to seven weeks with a broken thumb, Reboulet will be the starting second baseman today in the Orioles' exhibition opener against Minnesota in Fort Myers.

UP -- Bud Selig This time, the commish got it right by stopping the games. The next step will be to roll over the current labor agreement through 2002. But where was the "sanctity" of the 162-game schedule in '94 and '95? DOWN -- Ticket speculation The warehouse was flooded by calls from irate fans who paid exorbitant prices for seats to tonight's "Ripken farewell." Hey, it wasn't the Orioles who scalped the tickets. A bit of perspective, folks. DOWN -- Syd Thrift The vice president of baseball operations didn't accompany his listing team to Toronto.

Moose - DOWN - A heavy season has become unbearable. Jerry Hairston - UP - Gone but not forgotten for four months, he has reminded Camden Yards how to turn on the electricity. Delino DeShields - UP - Position switch or not, he has been the most consistent offensive presence this season. Team MVP? Jason Johnson - DOWN - His talent provides no reason for a 1-9 record. Without a doubt, this season's biggest enigma. Birth certificates - DOWN - We've heard about the Orioles being a graybeard team.

The Orioles' top three minor- league pitching prospects have been shut down for an indefinite period because of injuries, with two of them scheduled for examinations tomorrow by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. Former No. 1 draft picks Beau Hale and Richard Stahl will be evaluated by Andrews, the renowned orthopedic surgeon, as a precautionary measure. Hale, the 14th overall player taken in the 2000 draft, has been diagnosed with right triceps tendinitis. Stahl, the 18th overall selection in 1999, is bothered by tendinitis in his left shoulder.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - With the Orioles having an off day on Monday after concluding their three-game series with Tampa Bay, they won't need a fifth starter until next Saturday in Minnesota. Chuck McElroy's turn will be skipped Tuesday, with Pat Hentgen making the start in Detroit's spacious Comerica Park on five days' rest instead of the usual four. McElroy still hasn't been told whether he'll remain in the rotation, though it's assumed he's headed to the bullpen and a more familiar role.

WHEN Cleveland's Marty Cordova lined a two-out, two-strike, two-run single to right field in the top of the sixth inning last night, pushing the Indians' lead over the Orioles to 4-0 at Camden Yards, a sizable contingent of the 28,801 fans popped out of their seats and headed for the exits, the parking lot and beyond. It was hard to blame them for the visions of car heaters dancing in their heads. The cold, blustery conditions were miserable, as bracing as any experienced in the ballpark's history.

Delino DeShields always prided himself on being a patient hitter, one who could work a count in his favor and hold the advantage over any pitcher. Balls out of the strike zone didn't tempt him. They never could in 11 seasons as a major-league player. But that was back when DeShields knew what a strike was, which no longer is true. Does anybody? Last year's Most Valuable Oriole had become the team's most frustrated. His average was down to .083 before last night's game against Tampa Bay, with 11 strikeouts in 36 at-bats.

Rating the players **** Jay Gibbons: A pretty smart December pickup. *** Jeff Conine: His average is up to .344, and his 14 RBIs lead the team. ** Cal Ripken: The bat was slow on his opposite-field double, but it did the job. And again, no setbacks. Jerry Hairston: Contributes a fifth-inning single, but he's scuffling. Jose Mercedes: He'll never get three stars because that's his unlucky number. * Ryan Kohlmeier: Would have been worse if a save had been on the line. The arms Mercedes allowed 10 hits and four runs (three earned)

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - From the day he first arrived, Jerry Hairston has represented a jolt of caffeine within the Orioles' clubhouse. He can do without the stir. First there was the challenge for a veteran's second base job, then a roster crunch that sent him back to Rochester and eventually to a surgeon's office with whispers of a trade request tossed in for flavor. And, oh, the game's premier second baseman supposedly told Hairston last April to play his own rather than a copycat's game.
