VERO BEACH, Fla. -- The dissolution of Fernandomania reached its somber conclusion yesterday when Los Angeles Dodgers officials decided they had seen their once-great pitcher struggle for the last time.In a tiny, windowless office here in Dodgertown, Fernando Valenzuela, at 30, was told that he no longer was a Dodger. Intending to give him his unconditional release, the Dodgers put him on waivers."They call me into the office and say, 'This is very hard for us,' " Valenzuela said. "I said, 'What is so hard?

The Orioles have completed a deal for pitcher Dana Eveland, sending a minor league pitcher and outfielder to the Dodgers for a journeyman left-hander who had a solid season at Triple-A Albuquerque last year and pitched well after being called up to the majors in September. The Orioles gave up lefty Jarret Martin, 22, and outfielder Tyler Henson, 23, for Eveland. Eveland was 3-2 with a 3.03 ERA in five September starts but was considered a candidate to be nontendered this winter by the Dodgers.

The hometown Orioles missed the playoffs, but Baltimore-based Ashton Design still has a rooting interest in this year's Major League Baseball postseason. The design firm helped develop graphics at Dodger Stadium and Fenway Park, the homes, respectively, of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox. Ashton Design completed the enivornmental graphics for Dodgers Stadium this spring, as part of a larger renovation of the 51-year-old venue. The company has done work at Fenway since 2002.

Kasten practical choice Peter Schmuck Baltimore Sun This is almost a trick question. The Dodgers need somebody to ride in on a white horse and remind fans that they're still the Dodgers and that happy days will soon be here again. The perfect guy for that particular assignment would be former owner Peter O'Malley. But it seems unlikely that Bud Selig would offer him the assignment, and it's also questionable whether O'Malley would accept it unless he's in a position to buy a controlling interest in the team, which I'm guessing he's not. Which brings us to the more practical candidate, former Braves and Nationals President Stan Kasten, a tough operator who knows the game inside and out and knows where all the bodies are buried.

Given the Orioles' need for a corner infielder, Miami third baseman Hanley Ramirez might have made sense in Baltimore . But early Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the O's to the punch, acquiring Ramirez (and left-handed reliever Randy Choate) from the Marlins in exchange for rookie starter Nathan Eovaldi and minor league pitcher Scott McGough. Dan Connolly, citing an industry source, reported Tuesday night that the Marlins might have had interest in a young O's starter -- such as Jake Arrieta, Brian Matusz or Zach Britton -- but Baltimore would have had to include much more in a trade proposal given the competition for Ramirez.

The Orioles are officially up to three candidates for their vacant top executive post after interviewing 45-year-old De Jon Watson on Wednesday. It is expected the club will talk to one, and potentially two, more candidates before wrapping up the process, which began last week with the interviews of Arizona senior vice president Jerry Dipoto and Toronto assistant general manager Tony LaCava. Wednesday was Watson's turn to meet with the committee, which includes manager Buck Showalter, club general counsel H. Russell Smouse, managing partner Peter Angelos and his son, Lou. Like the previous candidates, Watson has a wealth of experience in scouting and development.

The game Jerry Hairston and Tony Batista homered off reliever Ricardo Rodriguez, and the Orioles took advantage of five Los Angeles errors, including an errant pickoff throw by reliever Lindsay Gulin with the bases loaded that scored two runs. Third baseman Adrian Beltre made two throwing errors in the same inning, and left fielder Marquis Grissom dropped a fly ball. Only five of the Orioles' runs were earned, and the Dodgers wasted 16 hits. The arms Josh Towers went two scoreless innings.

Littering the bases Orioles starter Steve Trachsel went four innings yesterday. Only one of them was clean. Trachsel allowed four runs (three earned) and seven hits, walked one and didn't record a strikeout. He faced 19 batters. The Dodgers almost hit for the cycle in the third, getting a single, two doubles and a triple. Andruw Jones bounced an RBI single up the middle in the first after an error and walk put Trachsel in trouble. Rafael Furcal, Delwyn Young and Matt Kemp drove in runs in the third, but Trachsel blanked the Dodgers in the fourth despite allowing two singles.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Los Angeles Dodger left-handed reliever Steve Wilson was released yesterday after clearing waivers.Wilson, 29, never equaled the success he had in helping the Dodgers down the stretch in 1991. After the Dodgers had claimed him on waivers that September from the Chicago Cubs, Wilson did not give up a run and yielded only one hit in 11 games, a total of 8 1/3 innings.

For the fourth consecutive time this season, Orioles starter Jake Arrieta couldn't make it to the sixth inning. Arrieta allowed five runs, all of them earned, against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. He was pulled from the game with the Orioles leading, 4-3, in the top of the fifth inning at Camden Yards. The Dodgers had runners on the corners and no outs when he left. Those two runners scored after T.J. McFarland entered the game, but they were credited to Arrieta, who is in line for the loss if the Orioles don't erase this one-run lead.

Top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy, who has only thrown soft toss since being shelved since March due to tightness in his right forearm/elbow, will throw Monday from 75 to 90 feet in Sarasota, Fla., according to Orioles manager Buck Showalter. He has yet to pitch in a pro game this season, but is expected to get on a mound toward the end of next week. Bundy apparently suffered forearm spasms because of the way he was placing the ball in and out of his glove - and the Orioles have worked with him to change that routine.

Right-hander Jake Arrieta stood stonefaced at his locker Sunday afternoon and placed the Orioles' 7-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers - and a missed chance at the club's first series sweep of the young season - squarely on his own shoulders. “I really didn't feel like the Dodgers beat us today. I beat us. I put us in a tough situation,” said Arrieta, who lasted just four-plus innings, giving up two hits, five walks and five earned runs. “Not giving up many hits at all, just making their job a lot easier by putting them on base for free.

Orioles starter Jason Hammel didn't do much to alleviate manager Buck Showalter's pregame concerns about playing a doubleheader Saturday against the Dodgers. Hammel allowed three runs -- all on a towering homer by right fielder Andre Ethier -- during a 32-pitch first inning in Game 1 against the Dodgers. He then allowed another run in the second on Mark Ellis' sacrifice fly. Of the first 10 batters Hammel faced, six reached base. He needed 51 innings to get through the second inning.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter had confidence that Nolan Reimold's bat would eventually come around. Even though Reimold's batting average dipped below .200 just two days ago as he struggled to find a comfort zone splitting time between designated hitter and left field, Showalter remained patient. And it was patience at the plate that led Reimold to the game-winning hit in the Orioles' 7-5 interleague win Saturday afternoon in Game 1 of their day-night doubleheader against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly first met Orioles manager Buck Showalter 22 years ago as 20-year-old minor leaguer. They were teammates for the Yankees' Double-A team in Nashville. Tonight, they will manage against each other for the first time in the opener of this weekend's interleague series at Camden Yards. Mattingly said he noticed Showalter's ability to gauge talent once Showalter became a coach and eventually managed Mattingly with the Yankees from 1993-95. “You really see it as a manager,” Mattingly said.

On occasion, Orioles manager Buck Showalter will wax poetic about certain baseball subjects as if he were sitting on a country porch, telling stories and sipping lemonade. Thursday afternoon was one of those times - when Showalter was asked about managing this weekend against Los Angeles Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly, whom Showalter played with in the minors, managed in the majors and has remained close to over the years.
