The Orioles still would have signed free-agent shortstop Miguel Tejada in 2003 even if they had known his correct age, a club official said yesterday. But it probably would have been a shorter deal if they had known he was about to turn 30. "I don't think it matters being a couple years," said Orioles executive vice president Mike Flanagan, who, along with Jim Beattie, signed Tejada to a six-year, $72 million contract in December 2003. "That still would have been considered his prime." But, "we probably wouldn't have signed him for so long," Flanagan said.

Freddie Bynum, Orioles utility player In light of Jackie Robinson Day, what has Jackie Robinson meant to you? He means a lot. If it weren't for him, we couldn't be playing today. I looked up to him a lot, even though I wasn't born when he was playing. ... He did some great things for us, and he did some great things for baseball.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The proximity of the Orioles' minor league complex in Sarasota to Tropicana Field gave several injured players an opportunity to show team officials how much they've progressed. And for reliever Chris Ray, being back with his teammates gave him even more motivation on the road back from elbow ligament reconstruction surgery in August. "I think it's a nice relief this year that our bullpen's performing the way they are," said Ray, who was the Orioles' closer before being shut down last season.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Two bullpen sessions brought different levels of encouragement yesterday for two injured pitchers in Orioles camp. George Sherrill sounded optimistic about his strained right hamstring. Troy Patton became more discouraged about the tightness in his left shoulder - and perhaps his chances of pitching this year. Sherrill will throw on the side again tomorrow and could appear in his first exhibition game Monday. "I threw somewhere around 30 pitches and I felt fine," he said.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- Orioles manager Dave Trembley didn't have to wait for the team's first workout to get his first good piece of news this spring. Catcher Ramon Hernandez reported to Fort Lauderdale Stadium yesterday, feeling healthy and looking in considerably better shape than last season. "Right now, it's unbelievable," Hernandez said when asked how he felt. "I really concentrated this offseason on working out. "I've been taking my vitamins, and I need to help my body rebuild.

Baseball's Ad Hoc Committee on Re-Integrating the National Pastime met yesterday in the home clubhouse about an hour before the first pitch of the re-scheduled Jackie Robinson Night at Camden Yards. Two of the Orioles' African-American players, later joined by the third, stood in front of a locker with a writer before the game and batted around ideas for keeping the memory of Robinson alive beyond the landmark-anniversary celebrations - and for taking the next step, preventing players like themselves from disappearing altogether.

On the Orioles [Nick] Markakis' two assists [in the opener] were thrilling - it's so awesome seeing an outfielder who's not merely competent. If we had a couple more guys like him, man, what a team that could be. It is truly sad that the best available pinch-hitter on our bench [Monday] night was [Freddie] Bynum. From what I observed, I really liked Jay Gibbons' curly red locks.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. -- If the Orioles go with a four-man bench this season, they must decide which player will fill the last spot, a competition that has no clear-cut favorite. It was supposed to be Freddie Bynum, but he's batting .152 after going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts as the starting left fielder in yesterday's 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
