Spring training last year, especially, we had him down speaking, basically having a classroom with our coaches and managers and minor leagues and everything. Riding around a cart talking about baseball and listening to him. We went through a drill and he said 'Ah, we were doing that 40 years ago.

BOSTON - Everyone knew that the American League East would be a battle this season, and that's certainly shaping up to be the case. Heading into Sunday, all five teams in the division are separated by just two games. The teams are constantly shuffling within the standings. And here in Boston, with the Red Sox coming off their third World Series title in a decade, it's not too soon for fans here to start panicking. The Red Sox came into Saturday's game with a 7-10 record, and in the first few weeks of the season, losses seem magnified when you're getting further away from .500.

Sitting in the visitors' dugout, Davey Johnson looked out over the park that used to be home, took a deep breath and grinned. It had been 15 years, but Johnson was finally managing again in Camden Yards. "Feels good to be back," said Johnson, now the manager of the Washington Nationals, before Friday night's series opener against the Orioles. "Little different view from this angle," he added. Different view, same landmarks. There, in the dugout across the field, that's where Johnson watched his final game wearing an Orioles cap. Over the right field wall, that's where Tony Fernandez launched his series-clinching home run in the top of the 11th inning, breaking a scoreless tie for the Cleveland Indians in Game 6 of the 1997 American League Championship Series.

  Here are the post-game transcripts of what Orioles manager Buck Showalter, Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson had to say about Monday's dust-up after the first inning in which the two managers screamed at each other and had to be separated by the umpires. BUCK SHOWALTER What caused you to come out of the dugout?  “(Girardi) was yelling at the third base coach. Somebody's wearing black and orange, I'm not going to let that happen.

Baltimore Orioles manager Frank Robinson was impressed with the new Comiskey Park, but he wasn't thrilled with a couple of features he feels might give the Chicago White Sox an unfair advantage.Robinson told The Evening Sun that he feels the White Sox video room is too close to the dugout and that a panel of padding in front of the home dugout shields the White Sox from view while allowing them to watch everything that goes on in the visitors' dugout."It's no big deal," Robinson said. "I just said that whatever they have in their dugout should be given to the visiting team, too. I didn't accuse anyone of anything.

If you want to play for the Orioles, you'll probably have to wait awhile. But if you want to see what it's like to be an Oriole, the wait is a lot shorter.By taking a tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, you can act as if you were an Oriole by sitting in the dugout and walking on the field."You really feel like an Oriole here," said Kevin Brock, 13, of Randallstown, walking on the grass between home plate and first base. "I just need a uniform and a bat, and I'm ready."Most of the excitement came when the tour headed down the long tunnel behind home plate to the field.

WASHINGTON -- Frank Robinson might not have concrete plans for the next baseball season, at which point he will be closing in on his 71st birthday. But that's only because he doesn't know who will own - and thus determine the future of - the franchise he manages. So, there's only one answer Robinson can give to the question of whether he'll be in Baltimore, tipping his cap to the fans who worship him still, for the first interleague visit by the Washington Nationals next summer. "If I'm still here," Robinson said last week, face split in the familiar grin and a just-as-familiar laugh escaping him. There aren't many rational reasons why Robinson wouldn't still be managing the Nationals a year from now, certainly not if his demeanor so far this year is any indication.

1/8 TC KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Davey Johnson was among the first in baseball to embrace the new age of technology, using computer-generated statistics to help him determine lineups. But during Tuesday night's loss in Cleveland, Johnson's anger was generated by and focused on a piece of equipment in his dugout: the phone.In most dugouts, the phone connected with the bullpen is on the wall nearest home plate, where the manager is usually bunkered. But in Cleveland, the phone to the bullpen is at the far end of the dugout, away from the manager.

MIAMI -- What ended as a disappointing loss narrowly missed becoming something tragic last night when a portion of the Orioles' dugout at Pro Player Stadium collapsed during the third inning, scattering players and bruising the right foot of tonight's starting pitcher, Rick Krivda.About 10 feet long, the section gave way when a Marlins Bleacher Brigade cheerleader leaped from the stands near the third base dugout to toss T-shirts to fans. Supported by steel beams, the detachable section buckled, sending the cheerleader sprawling.

Manager Buck Showalter charged out of the Orioles dugout at the end of the first inning Monday night, shouting angrily at Yankees manager Joe Girardi. Showalter was so hot, in fact, that he had to be restrained by the umpiring crew. It didn't take a very astute lip reader to figure out what Showalter was saying on the video replay, and the first thing out of his mouth cannot be printed here. Then he clearly was saying “That ain't right, Joe…That ain't right.” Before Showalter left the dugout, there appeared to be some angry banter between Girardi and Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson that was caught by the camera of the YES Network, leading to some speculation by the Yankee broadcasters that Girardi may have accused Dickerson of stealing signs.

    The Orioles lost 7-3 to the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night.   Stephen Drew had two homers and five RBIs. The Orioles stranded nine baserunners.     But the lasting image from a weird, emotionally charged evening was Boston designated hitter David Ortiz flipping out in the visitor's dugout, swinging his bat viciously at one of the two wall dugout phones.  He crushed the top phone's cover - that's the phone that connects to the press box where public relations reps and the official scorer can be reached - scattering pieces and spraying shrapnel everywhere.

Paul Blair remembers Dave May, who broke into baseball with the Orioles and spent 3-1/2 seasons here, as a skilled outfielder who was in the right place, but at the wrong time. "Unfortunately, when he got here (in 1967), there wasn't any room for him to play. He just couldn't break into our lineup," said Blair, the Orioles standout center fielder who was flanked by Frank Robinson and Don Buford. May died Saturday of cancer. The New Castle, Del., native was 68. A reserve with the Orioles, he hit .216 before being dealt to Milwaukee in mid-1970.

NEW YORK -- Relievers are usually a different breed. They spend most of the game together in the bullpen, where they make up their own activities to keep themselves occupied. But what about when nearly all of the relievers are in the dugout going into the 13 th inning? Cameras caught Orioles players gathering in a circle in the dugout going into the 13 th inning of the Orioles' series-tying 2-1 win in game 4 last night. They later lined all of their hats in a row along the front railing of the dugout, a lineup of cartoon birds staring at the Yankees.

VIERA, Fla. -- The trim man in the sunglasses, jeans and matching World Baseball Classic ballcap and golf shirt wandered into the visiting dugout at Space Coast Stadium yesterday hours before the Orioles played the Washington Nationals. "Hey, Skip," he yelped Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo jumped to his feet and rushed the man, bear-hugging him like a long-lost brother. For the first time since an acrimonious departure from the team at the end of the 1997 season, Davey Johnson was back in the Orioles' dugout, albeit temporarily.

The Orioles sent a powerful message - literally and figuratively - to the Yankeesin their thrilling 10-6 win at Camden Yardslast night. Mixed in with the usual smells of sweat, sunflower seeds and bubble-gum in the Orioles' dugout was the overpowering scent of testosterone. A six-home-run barrage - the most homers by the O's in a game in over five years  - left Yankees pitchers muttering to themselves. And three blasts in the eighth inning by Adam Jones, sizzling Mark Reynolds and Chris Davis - the last on a swing  so relaxed I thought he was falling asleep - sent the sellout crowd into a delirious celebration.
