It's not easy to find out what Vice President Dick Cheney is up to, but somehow as information dribbles out he always seems to have been at the heart of every egregious move undertaken by the Bush administration. Mr. Cheney sponsored the lawyers who came up with the idea that torture was a beneficial addition to American jurisprudence, he has dismissed a suggestion by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to resolve the Guantanamo Bay outrage, and he blocked the promotion of a Justice Department lawyer who resisted the warrantless wiretapping program.

Willing to give Mike Fetters a tryout in his own backyard, the Orioles followed through yesterday by signing the free-agent right-handed reliever to a minor-league contract but virtually assuring him a place in their retooled bullpen.Signing Fetters, a ground-ball pitcher suited to the tight confines of Camden Yards, guarantees that the club will begin the coming season with only three holdovers from last year's bullpen."I like the general makeup of our bullpen," general manager Frank Wren said last night.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Mike Fetters is in good health, but still hurt by the rumors.There were whispers last season that Fetters had an arm injury, that he was damaged goods and not worthy of a serious look in the free-agent market this winter. The Orioles didn't buy it.That's why Fetters is in camp as a nonroster player who believes he has something to prove to all of baseball.His first appearance yesterday didn't go exactly as he wanted, though it could have been worse. Two batters into his only inning, Fetters was putting out fires, escaping a second-and-third, no-out jam with only one run allowed.

Orioles reliever Mike Fetters threw about 40 pitches off a mound in the indoor cage yesterday and remains encouraged by his progress from elbow surgery. He accompanied the team to Tampa Bay last night and could begin a rehab assignment in the minors within the next two weeks.Throwing only fastballs, Fetters said the elbow was free of the pain that had forced him on the disabled list on June 7 and required surgery two weeks later to remove bone chips and spurs. He had been scheduled for a bullpen session but was confined indoors because of rain.

MIAMI -- Convinced that Mike Fetters will miss significant time because of a sore elbow, the Orioles placed the veteran reliever on the disabled list yesterday and activated pitcher Scott Kamieniecki.Fetters will be examined in Baltimore today by team orthopedic doctor Michael Jacobs. Club officials initially have termed the ailment a right elbow strain, but manager Ray Miller said he was told by Jacobs on Sunday that Fetters could be out anywhere from one to six weeks, "depending on what's wrong with him."

ON A RECENT visit to an inpatient psych unit, it becomes clear that several convalescents have more in common than spiritual anguish and labels culled from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. They are unemployed. "I'd be a lot better if I had a job," says one highly intelligent, credential-laden man, his crisis triggered by a paycheck deficiency. Another patient lost a blue-collar slot as part of the great diaspora of U.S. factory jobs to Mexico, China and beyond.

Members of a committee trying to update Ellicott City's master plan are struggling to find money to complete it, regardless of whether the final document can be ready before comprehensive rezoning of Howard County begins. Since an application for a $10,000 Community Legacy grant from the state Department of Housing and Community Development was denied, the panel of residents has been looking for other ways to pay for an editor for a 45-page draft. More than 50 people met for a year to develop a preliminary plan, which addresses issues including development, senior housing and signs along the U.S. 40 commercial strip.

Other than that, it was a masterpiece." - Astros manager Larry Dierker on Scott Elarton's win over the Diamondbacks It's a fact:The Astros' Moises Alou had the 14th four-hit game of his career and third of the season Tuesday night.

As they severed ties with two members of last season's dysfunctional bullpen, the Orioles yesterday appeared ready to reacquire free-agent designated hitter and St. Michaels native Harold Baines.Increased momentum for Baines' accepting a one-year contract came as the Orioles declined to offer arbitration to their free-agent relievers, Jim Corsi and Mike Fetters, while making the offer to incumbent left-handed reliever Arthur Rhodes and first baseman Jeff Conine.The Indians yesterday declined to offer arbitration to Baines, meaning the Orioles can re-sign him without surrendering a draft pick as compensation.

To entertain fans at Camden Yards before the last three games, the Orioles have been showing highlights on the video screen from their 1983 World Series victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Too bad that reality, in the form of their 1999 bullpen, kept slicing through the warm feelings.The cuts ran deep yesterday. Handed a four-run lead, Doug Johns and Mike Fetters crafted a six-run sixth inning for the Phillies. And placed on level ground in the seventh after the Orioles rallied to tie, Ricky Bones took a nasty spill, allowing a two-run homer to Mike Lieberthal in Philadelphia's 11-7 victory over the Orioles before 47,833 mostly dissatisfied customers.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Speaking of Cal Ripken's breakneck run at 3,000 career hits, manager Ray Miller recently contemplated its significance and said succinctly: "I'd like to see it happen."An enigma to the end, the Orioles topped an 11-game winning streak on Sunday, the same day their postseason chances died. Sunday's three singles allowed Ripken to move to within 10 hits of the career milestone. Now, as he supervises the franchise's longest run since 1987, Miller increasingly refers to his tenure as manager in the past tense.

Another round of baseball-related activities passed without any setbacks for Cal Ripken, and the Orioles third baseman is expected to be activated before tonight's game against Tampa Bay.Ripken moved freely as he took batting practice and infield yesterday. The club chose to delay activating him in part because rosters expand today, eliminating the need to clear space for his return."Cal will probably be activated, but I don't know whether he'll play or not. It depends how he feels," said manager Ray Miller.
