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. "You know how people say friends are people that know all about you and still like you?

Tino Martinez, meet Doug DeCinces and Ray Knight.As Martinez prepares to replace Don Mattingly at first base for the Yankees today, he should take comfort in the knowledge that he is not the first player to replace a living legend. In two comparable circumstances, DeCinces replaced Brooks Robinson at third base in Baltimore and Knight replaced Pete Rose at third base in Cincinnati.DeCinces and Knight lived to tell about it, and now they have some advice for, and some thoughts about, Martinez.

A TALE OF TWO CITIESThe Orioles were on the verge of picking up a game on the Yankees yesterday until two three-run home runs (one in Oakland, Calif., and the other in Anaheim, Calif.) hit almost simultaneously at about 7 p.m. resulted in an Orioles loss and a Yankees win. Here's what happened:In Oakland: The Orioles took a 6-0 lead against the Athletics into the seventh inning and a 6-2 lead into the eighth. But Scott Hemond's three-run home run -- his second homer of the year -- tied the game at 6. Oakland went on to win, 7-6, when Rickey Henderson scored on Mark Eichhorn's wild pitch in the ninth.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- After he stroked his final putt, Lucas Glover could barely muster a fist pump. "I don't know if I could have thought up a good celebration," he said. "Mentally, I was done." But his brain wasn't scrambled to where he forgot about a bet, actually more of a promise, that caddie Don Cooper had made: If Glover won the U.S. Open, Cooper would buy himself a Corvette. After the men hugged Monday afternoon on the 72nd green at Bethpage Black, Glover told him he had to live up to the deal.

With all the 21st-century might a television remote control can bestow, I close the curtain daily on the numbing, maniacal theater that has become the Elian Gonzalez custody battle. The angry grimaces, mouths wide open, dental fillings exposed. The yellow tape barricades and shrieking hand-scrawled signs. The passionate monologues near the house in Little Havana. It's a drama with all the venom of a Shakespearean tragedy -- and I can remove it from my world with a press of a buttom. But just when I consider myself free of the nonfiction soap opera captivating world attention, Ben Wade drags me back.

New York -- IT'S EASY for politicians to vilify Richard Kraft, the Yankees' former director of community reelations, who compared South Bronx children to "monkeys." It will be harder to solve the complicated problems between the team and the neighborhood, Mr. Kraft's resignation on Saturday not withstanding.Fernando Ferrer, the Bronx borough president, took advantage of Mr. Kraft's insensitive statement (which I reported recently in New York magazine) to give a boost to his political profile and mayoral aspirations.
