Doug Jones, OriolesHis worst bullpens:1. Tiger Stadium "It's like you're sitting in a bunker. You can't see anything. It's like a hole in the ground."2. Arlington Stadium "It was tough to see the foul lines. It was a bunker, like Detroit."3. Fenway Park "You feel like you're in a boxcar. They have sliding doors, and it's like cattle being herded. It gets really cold in there."4. Cleveland Stadium "I couldn't see home plate. The fans were really close to us, but they can turn on you. They liked to throw things at us."

He saw me standing there in the hotel lobby and asked me what I was doing. I told him I was looking for a place to get a hamburger and he said, 'C'mon, let me buy you a steak.' "2. Dan Quisenberry.

The Orioles went 17-10 in July and jumped back into the AL East race. Fueling the team's surge was Rafael Palmeiro, who hit nine homers in the month, tied for second most in the American League. Palmeiro also had 61 total bases, tied for eighth most.Among other Orioles who ranked among AL leaders in July: Brady Anderson (seven stolen bases, tied for second; 18 walks, tied for eighth); Mike Mussina (five victories, second); Doug Jones (eight saves, tied for second); and Terry Clark and Jesse Orosco (14 games pitched apiece, tied for third)

When Mike Mussina emerged from the Orioles' dugout and jogged to the mound to pitch the bottom of the ninth inning last night at Camden Yards, the crowd stood and cheered.One part of the cheer was for Mussina, who was on his way to a four-hit shutout against Toronto. The other part of the cheer, unmistakably, was for manager Phil Regan choosing not to bring Doug Jones in from the bullpen to close the game.Camden Yards would have experienced its first bonfire in the bleachers if Regan had made that move.

MILWAUKEE -- A week into June, the Orioles' bullpen was a mess. Closer Doug Jones and setup man Jesse Orosco were throwing well, but because of middle relief problems, the Orioles often couldn't get from the starters to Jones and Orosco.But the Orioles added veterans Terry Clark and Mark Lee from Triple-A Rochester, and now the bullpen is a strength. "Big-time," Orosco said. "They've been big-time. I've been saying that for awhile, watching these guys throw."Jones said, "The experience has been a contributing factor for us. I think there was a lot of pressure on the young guys [Armando Benitez and Brad Pennington]

The construction of Denver's Coors Field, proposed home of the National League's Colorado Rockies, may be delayed because the land could be contaminated with substances used to maintain railroad tracks, formerly on the site.Environmental engineers said the ballpark might not be ready for its planned opening in 1994 because a cleanup could take years.* PIRATES: President Carl Barger said he may step down before the season ends to concentrate on building the expansion Florida Marlins.Barger had said he hoped to remain with the Pirates for the full season and then move to Miami, an unprecedented arrangement that has drawn charges of conflict of interest.

The Orioles just lost another game.Camden Yards is burning, burning from the wrath of Peter Angelos, burning from the rage of Phil Regan, burning from the arsonists in the Orioles' bullpen.The warehouse?It's the towering inferno.The walk from the bullpen to the pitcher's mound?Gasoline Alley.To think, the Orioles are talking seriously about acquiring another relief pitcher.

Whenever possible, a manager prefers to give his relief pitchers some margin for error. To that extent, Phil Regan fulfilled his obligation to Doug Jones Tuesday night.The Orioles' manager hardly could have suspected his closer would exceed his marginal limits by allowing six runs without getting one hitter out. The resulting 12-10 loss to Toronto left an exasperated Camden Yards audience asking the obvious question in hindsight."With a 10-6 lead, why was Jones in the game?" was the obvious post-game query by disgruntled fans, who reacted with predictable hostility.

It is said that Baltimore is one of the best baseball towns in America. Unless you're a closer.Around here, closers aren't much different than potholes. They're there to be cursed. And replaced every few years.Gregg Olson was one of the best in the business until his elbow injury in 1993, recording 160 saves before his 26th birthday, but the fans at Camden Yards treated him like he was Bob Irsay's lawyer or something. They all but booed him out of town.Lee Smith? The fans didn't get on him, but only because he happened not to be the dreaded Olson.

Doug Jones sat in front of his locker before yesterday's game watching the NASCAR qualifying. He knows several of the drivers.In many ways, Jones fits the image of those stock car drivers: a competitive son-of-a-gun on the field but a laid-back, aw shucks type of guy off it.Win or lose, Jones' demeanor never changes."

His numbers are impressive, just as they were at this time last year. But those who keep trying to equate the loss of Lee Smith to the Orioles' horrible start are fishing in an empty stream.Even though Smith picked up his AL-leading 12th save against his most recent former team last night, the big right-hander isn't even the ex-player the Orioles miss the most.That distinction, easily, belongs to Mark McLemore, who is among the American League batting and stolen-base leaders while performing for former Orioles manager Johnny Oates and the Texas Rangers.
