Orioles general manager Frank Wren returned to his South Florida home last evening after three days of exhaustive interviews with manager Ray Miller, chief scouts and fellow front office members.Though Wren has yet to disclose his organizational blueprint for public consumption, the Orioles appear headed for significant changes intended to provide greater offensive balance, a healthier, deeper pitching staff and perhaps a realigned outfield.The extreme but not inconceivable fallout could leave only two position players, third baseman Cal Ripken and shortstop Mike Bordick, in the spots they occupied last season, according to club sources.

Doug Drabek wasn't given any promises last night, only the ball. For someone who watched a month go by without pitching, it wasn't a bad deal.Unfortunately for Drabek and the Orioles, it didn't get any better from there. With 24 games remaining, they must wonder if it ever will.Activated earlier in the day, Drabek lasted into the sixth inning and was charged with four earned runs. He allowed a homer to rookie Jeff Abbott leading off the fifth that moved Chicago ahead, Albert Belle continued his monstrous second half and the Orioles sputtered to another loss, 9-5, before 40,016 at Camden Yards.

Pittsburgh Pirates general manager Ted Simmons, responding to persistent rumors that a deal with the Atlanta Braves was imminent, said yesterday the Pirates won't trade Barry Bonds this season.Simmons also said he won't deal former Cy Young Award winner Doug Drabek, who, like Bonds, can become a free agent after this season.Simmons made the remarks just minutes after releasing bullpen closer Bill Landrum in the second cost-cutting move by the Pirates this week. John Smiley, a 20-game winner last year and a prospective free agent next winter, was dealt Tuesday to the Minnesota Twins for two prospects.

Doug Drabek -- EVEN -- A strong spring and an encouraging first start elevated him to the No. 4 starter, but he struggled in Friday's loss at Detroit. Mike Mussina was bumped back a day to prevent him from pitching with nine days' rest.Joe Carter -- UP -- OK, the right fielder/designated hitter hasn't gone deep yet and, yeah, he has committed two errors. But his five RBIs in Kansas City accounted for the difference in both wins.Schedule guy -- DOWN -- Two off days within a span of four days thanks to a day off in Kansas City.

Trying to pass along a compliment to Orioles reliever Alan Mills can be like offering a T-bone to a vegetarian. With a smile stretching the ends of his Fu Manchu, he'll push it away.As long as the subject has anything to do with baseball, Mills would rather go hungry than feast on superlatives.Maybe it comes from losing parts of the past three seasons to injury. Maybe it's just part of his superstitious nature. Whatever the reason, he finds any mention of his statistics utterly distasteful, an unwanted invitation to jinxing himself.

BOWIE -- Doug Drabek, on the disabled list retroactive to Aug. 1 with a strained left hamstring, tossed five hitless innings against Harrisburg last night in an injury rehab start at Double-A Bowie.He threw 55 pitches, striking out three and walking none, and said afterward that he's ready to return to the Orioles in any capacity."There was no pain as far as I could tell," said Drabek, who will rejoin the club in Chicago today. "I could tell in the fifth inning that my legs were a little tired just from non-activity.

The Orioles' leading hitter is 36. Their second-leading hitter is 39. Their most dependable reliever is 41. Evidently, some of these geezers can still play. Jesse Orosco doesn't look ready to retire. Eric Davis and Harold Baines are at the top of their games. And suddenly, Jimmy Key might be reborn. The Orioles aren't getting older; they're getting better. They're 28-8 since the All-Star break, 6 1/2 games behind the wild-card-leading Boston Red Sox, winning every night at Bingo.

CLEVELAND -- As of Tuesday the Orioles may find themselves in the odd position of having too many healthy pitchers. The result may mean an extended stay for Doug Drabek in roster limbo.Drabek, on the disabled list since Aug. 1 with a strained left hamstring, threw pain-free in the bullpen for 10 minutes before Friday night's game. The news got better yesterday when Drabek's hamstring did not become sore overnight. However, his improved condition doesn't necessarily translate into his being activated today.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The contagion that spread through the Orioles' Opening Day rotation won't let go. Doug Drabek, already exiled to the bullpen after suffering through three indifferent months, was placed on the disabled list yesterday with a strained left hamstring. It is the second time Drabek has been put on the DL this season. The Orioles announced the move was made retroactive to Aug. 1, meaning Drabek will be eligible to return Aug. 16.Right-handed reliever Bobby Munoz was promoted for the second time from Triple-A Rochester.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Doug Drabek may not have a bigger sup porter in baseball than Orioles manager Ray Miller, which has come in handy while the veteran pitcher has struggled this season. But Miller couldn't hold a spot for him in the rotation any longer, moving Drabek to the bullpen last week.Now, Drabek, 36, is clinging to his job with the Orioles, perhaps the most vulnerable pitcher when reliever Arthur Rhodes eventually returns from the disabled list.Drabek went the last five innings Friday night, his first relief Drabek appearance since 1989 while with Pittsburgh.
