FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Until recently, Brian Roberts' comeback played out almost entirely outside the public eye, away from the curious gaze of many of his teammates and the critical glare of reporters, looking for proof that the Orioles second baseman is ready to play in a baseball game again. At first, he took batting practice on a back field at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, where no fans are allowed and where planes taking off nearby drown out any sounds associated with baseball. He has followed hitting coach Terry Crowley, both of them ducking into the batting cage adjacent to the main field, a thick netting obscuring the diminutive All-Star swinging at soft-toss pitches inside.

Cruising around the west coast of Florida this week, a few thoughts came to mind: Is there any place in the free world with more strip malls per square mile than the greater Tampa-St. Pete area? Are they called strip malls because, at least in Tampa, there seemingly is a strip joint on every corner? Aren't the Orioles lucky that they have a great city like Fort Lauderdale to spend six weeks in? And could Fort Lauderdale Stadium be any worse? Spending a few days in Clearwater, Sarasota and Tampa opened the eyes to how bad the Orioles' big league training facility is for fans, players and media alike.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles yesterday assigned left-handed pitcher Matt Riley to their minor-league camp in Sarasota less than 48 hours after the troubled 20-year-old was sprayed with Mace, handcuffed and arrested on charges of disorderly conduct following an altercation with Fort Lauderdale police outside a beachfront nightclub. Riley was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on the same day that he was scheduled to appear in a televised exhibition against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
