DOGWOOD HARBOR - For one day, Phil Price's 47-foot fishing boat had a Hall of Fame defense and an All-Star offense. The small, orange-and-black flags flying from the rigging signaled why: No. 3 and No. 5 were on board. No. 3, as in Harold Baines. No. 5, as in Brooks Robinson. But, as someone pointed out to Robinson, it could easily have been a No. 34 up there. That was the Hall of Famer's number during spring training in 1957. Who knew? Not Robinson. "I'll be darned," he said, shaking his head when shown an Orioles early-season program from that year.

July 23, 1996: Construction begins on the Ravens' $200 million stadium at Camden Yards, which is due to open in 1998. "We will deliver a football stadium that will do for the NFL what Oriole Park has done for baseball," Maryland Stadium Authority chairman John A. Moag Jr. says at the groundbreaking ceremony. July 24, 1993: Bad knees and all, Orioles designated hitter Harold Baines beats out an infield chopper for his 2,000th career hit in a 9-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins at the Metrodome.

Now that Cal Ripken has become the third player in the past year to get his 3,000th career hit, the focus can shift to the on-deck circle. Who's next? There are two veteran players close enough to get there if they can just hang on a little longer. New York Mets outfielder Rickey Henderson and Orioles designated hitter Harold Baines are both within striking distance. With Ripken at 3,000 Henderson needs 177 hits, a total that probably would require him to play into 2001 to accumulate.

When I reported that the Orioles had held a brief workout for lefty reliever Arthur Rhodes at Camden Yards on Thursday, I received a whole lot of age jokes on my Twitter account. For once, they weren't aimed at me. Rhodes, who didn't pitch professionally in 2012 and was last seen winning a World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011, turned 43 in October. (That's actually slightly older than me, so take that). I think the best line I saw on Twitter was from the guy who asked me if Rhodes had developed a deer-antler spitball to get hitters out. Hey, insulting and topical.

Harold Baines is the biggest Os acquisition since Glenn Davis.Haitians must understand that when Bill said he would let them into the country he did not mean, of course, that he would let them into the country.It turns out that some of our smart bombs don't read Arabic.The British Parliament will enact laws to prevent the scurrilous press from snooping on politicians the same as royals.From all the hoopla, you would think it was David Letterman who got elected, not Bill Clinton.

CLEVELAND -- The Orioles' lineup is posted just outside the trainer's room here, and as players arrived before last night's game and glanced at the batting order, there were some double-takes.Orioles manager Phil Regan, having watched his team go through an 0-for-22 stretch with runners on base, made major alterations to his lineup, and said he'll test the changes for the next few games.From the top:Rookie center fielder Curtis Goodwin, hitting .478, was inserted into the leadoff spot, and left fielder Brady Anderson, who slumped to .251 after a tremendous start, was dropped to No. 2."

TORONTO -- It's hard to believe, but Cal Ripken did have one disappointment in the All-Star Game last night. When Cincinnati righthander Rob Dibble, reputedly the hardest thrower in the game, came in with two on and nobody out in the seventh inning, Ripken was the scheduled hitter.But manager Tony La Russa decided to use all lefthanded hitters against Dibble, and sent switch-hitting Ozzie Guillen up to pinch-hit for Ripken."It would have been a challenge," Ripken said, when asked if he looked forward to facing Dibble.

I'll assume that the speeches given at yesterday's Orioles Hall of Fame ceremony were quite moving. I can only imagine, since the PA system here is so bad, you can't understand a single word in the press box. Now that Chris Hoiles and Doug DeCinces have been inducted, I'm wondering which former Orioles are next in line? Mike Bordick? B.J. Surhoff? Will all be forgiven after Mike Mussina retires? It's hard to imagine an Orioles Hall of Fame without Moose. I'm going to assume that there's not enough forgiveness for Rafael Palmeiro, but I'd be interested in your opinion.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Harold Baines discovered another way Monday night his role might be diminished. Center fielder Brady Anderson couldn't play. Baines, whose presence has steadily decreased since he opened the season as the Orioles' regular designated hitter and No. 5 hitter behind Albert Belle, couldn't pinch hit for rookie center fielder Luis Matos with runners at second and third in the ninth inning of a 12-12 game as manager Mike Hargrove found himself...

Cal Ripken -- UP -- Hits in 10 straight games, passes Brooks Robinson for the franchise hit record and extends his streak of reaching base to 45 games in a row. Oh, yeah, The Streak hit No. 2,600 eight days ago. Shut up about range. He leads AL third basemen in fielding percentage.Chris Hoiles -- UP -- Two grand slams in the same game earned his jersey a ticket to Cooperstown. Only Harold Baines and Eric Davis have been better with runners in scoring position. Give him at-bats, the RBIs will come.

Chuck McElroy - DOWN - Right now he's the symbol of Syd Thrift's inconsistent bullpen. The Orioles owe him $2.6 million through next season. That buys patience, but how much? Harold Baines - UP- Broke out of a two-week malaise last week. Overabundance of left-handed bats may cut into his time, however. Brady Anderson, Will Clark and Albert Belle have made guest appearances as DH. Albert Belle - DOWN- Will soon be appearing in remake of "It Happens Every Spring." Right now, he's behind the fastball and ahead of the curve.
