While other Orioles pitchers head to different fields to throw bullpen sessions or work on their fielding and pickoff moves, Brandon Erbe stays off to the side and plays catch with an athletic trainer. It is a tedious and, at times, frustrating routine for the pitcher, but it's also a necessary one if the former McDonogh standout hopes to rebound from shoulder surgery and get to the big leagues. "It's tough because you want to get back as soon as possible," said Erbe, a 23-year-old right-hander who had surgery to repair a torn labrum in mid-August.

Joan Erbe, at 84, still wields a mean piece of graphite. Inspired by the art hanging in a sunny space at the Edward A. Myerberg Senior Center in a Northwest Baltimore neighborhood, she casually sketches an odd, square, quizzical little face on a corner of white table paper. She limits herself to drawing these days because she longer feels strong enough to push her arm across a canvas. But the spark is still there. She shows off her gnarled hands. "I used to think when my hand went, the art would go too," she says.

It's always a pleasure to see the work of an artist conscious of just what her talent is and working firmly within it. That's certainly the case with Joan Erbe, native of Baltimore and veteran of more than 50 museum and gallery shows in the past 40 years, from Massachusetts to California.Erbe's figural paintings exist on several levels. With their vivid colors and bright patterns they can be seen as extremely decorative, in the good sense of the term; Erbe's acrylics, sometimes in combination with drawing and with collaged, patterned paper or fabric, produce vibrant works that pulse with life and display the evidence of an unfaltering hand.

Every time the Orioles think they have a handle on how good Brandon Erbe can become, the 18-year-old Pikesville native pitches just a little better. First, he was a great value pick in the 2005 draft. Next, he was a strikeout machine in Rookie-level ball. Then, he jumped to a good start this season at Single-A Delmarva. And lately? If Erbe continues to dominate as he has, he may finish the season as one of baseball's best teenage pitching prospects. "He started the season well, but now he's even better," said Orioles minor league director David Stockstill.

Anyone who thinks an artist's life is a peaceful thing has never spent an evening with Joan Erbe and her husband, George Udel.First of all, the phone won't stop ringing. (Hello, Steve. . . . Hold on, Elsie. . . . Come on over, Tilden.) Then there's Natey, the couple's handsome 9-year-old grandson, shuffling around the second floor. Isn't that the doorbell? Just a neighbor dropping by to chat about his new airplane.Mr. Udel, meanwhile, is trying to lead an impromptu tour through the couple's Roland Park home.

Even a baseball novice could've told you which high school pitcher would make the majors. At a lean 6 feet 4 with a fastball that crossed 95 mph and uncommon poise for a teenager, McDonogh's Brandon Erbe could have been cast by Hollywood as a young Jim Palmer. Chorye Spoone? Well, the player from Northeast High was a chunky kid with an unruly temper whose fastball topped out at 87 mph. But a funny thing has happened since the two local pitchers were picked by their hometown Orioles in the 2005 draft.

St. Paul's Steve Johnson won his highly anticipated pitchers duel with McDonogh's Brandon Erbe yesterday, tying a state record with 20 strikeouts and allowing just one hit in the No. 7 Crusaders' 5-2 victory over the No. 5 Eagles. Johnson, the first player to be named All-Metro by The Sun in each of his first three years of high school, lost a bid for his first high school no-hitter with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. "Steve was absolutely dominating today," said coach Paul Bernstorf, whose Crusaders improved to 2-4. About 55 pro scouts armed with radar guns and representing all 30 major league baseball teams were in attendance to see the two senior right-handers, who are the area's top two pitchers and pro prospects.

When Single-A Frederick pitcher Brandon Erbe is on his game, he reminds the Orioles why they drafted him in the third round two years ago. Executives from other teams wonder how they could have passed on him. He flashes major league talent that can be blinding. But when Erbe struggles, he reminds everyone that he's only 19 and has a long way to go. And, boy, can he struggle. Erbe, a graduate of McDonogh, entered yesterday's start with a 6-4 record and 6.07 ERA in 18 games. He had allowed 89 hits in 86 innings, with 48 walks and 76 strikeouts.

Young pitchers Luis Lebron and Brandon Erbe were among seven players sent out of Orioles camp Monday, but they left manager Dave Trembley with a lasting impression as they headed to the minor league facility. "Both of them have special, special arms and great bodies. They are pitchers, long, lean, good workers, good makeup," Trembley said. "People won't miss on them. There are other guys that have come through … and people have missed on them and maybe over-projected.

- Day after day after the 2007 season, Brandon Erbe arrived at Twin Lakes Park, got dressed and headed out to the bullpen to meet Orioles minor league pitching instructor Dave Schmidt. For more than a month, they worked under the Florida sun, doing the same drills and retracing the same movements. Erbe never threw a single pitch. "We had three or four drills that we'd do over and over, just dry work. It's not exactly fun. It's rather mundane, just boring stuff over and over again," Schmidt said.

Joan Erbe has always been fascinated with the unusual. Recently she found three of her childhood drawings, from the 1930s, and just for fun they're included in her current show at the Gomez Gallery. Their subject matter is the circus.Over the decades she has developed a style in which weird-looking characters in colorful costumes find themselves in abnormal situations. These pictures combine a childlike interest in strange creatures and an atmosphere that's slightly unset- tling and sometimes almost sinister.
