Jesse Orosco, Orioles relieverThe five toughest hitters:1. Chili Davis. "He's just absolutely destroyed me. Doubles, singles, homers, whatever it takes."2. Danny Tartabull. "He's hit me very hard. He's the only guy I've allowed three homers to in my career."3. Harold Reynolds. "He's got like eight or nine hits against me in 10 at-bats. He wouldn't try to drive the ball off me. He'd hit it wherever the pitch would be."4. Andre Dawson. "He's always been so aggressive. You can throw him a good pitch, down and in, and he's such a good hitter where he's still going to be able to drive the pitch somewhere."

No one will argue that the Orioles' offense could use a bit of a boost. Whether two men who joined them Thursday in batting practice could provide it is a different conversation entirely. Former Orioles Harold Reynolds and Brady Anderson were in full uniform yesterday before the Orioles' 3-1 loss to Houston, with Reynolds taking his hacks in the batting cage and trying to regain his late-80s All-Star form. Reynolds, now an MLB Network analyst, will broadcast today's Civil Rights Game in Houston.

Not enough real fans? YupIn response to an earlier editorial about the absence of real fans at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, I agree with the writer wholeheartedly that only about 20 percent of the people at the game are real fans and the rest are yuppies and corporate types.The cure to this problem is simple: eliminate some of the corporate box seats next year so more real fans that want to get a close-up look at Cal Ripken can have that chance.I feel bad for those fathers and their sons who will never get achance to walk up to the ticket booth and buy box seats because some yuppies and their clients wish to do business in the comforts of the yard.

SEATTLE -- Jeff Ballard couldn't believe it.Three innings. Three runs. See you later.Manager Frank Robinson apparently can't afford to be patient anymore. The three runs were enough to carry the Seattle Mariners to a 3-1 victory last night and drop the Baltimore Orioles back into the American League East cellar."Obviously, he saw something he didn't like and he didn't want to see it anymore," Ballard said. "But if you're going to be a starting pitcher, you've got to be able to work out of a jam. To me, it [the hook]

Shortly after joining the Orioles, Harold Reynolds was asked for money by a woman wheeling a baby carriage in Baltimore. Reynolds had an appointment with the team doctor for a physical, but after brushing past the woman, he turned around."

Releasing B. Ripken an errorI am outraged that the Orioles have decided to sign Harold Reynolds and release Bill Ripken. First, Roland Hemond wastes the Orioles' too easily earned dollars on a winter vacation in Louisville, accomplishing nothing memorable. Then he signs an aging free agent to replace one of the best fielding second basemen in the league.Though I never would have replaced Billy for anyone in baseball, this move might have been defensible if Reynolds were a power hitter (he's not)

The Orioles drew some criticism for their apparent indecisiveness at the winter meetings earlier this week, but the front office made a couple of difficult decisions yesterday that could have a significant effect on the chemistry of the team.General manager Roland Hemond announced that the Orioles had signed All-Star free-agent second baseman Harold Reynolds a one-year contract worth $1.65 million plus incentives. To make way for Reynolds to play full time at second base, the club waived Bill Ripken for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release.

Right-hander Rocky Coppinger has not been right since the final week of spring training, but he was visibly upset when he was informed yesterday that he was being optioned to the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings. He was so upset that he would not comment on his demotion.RTC "I've got nothing to say," he said as he rumbled -- red-eyed -- out of the clubhouse.Manager Davey Johnson had a lot to say. He said the decision should have been made sooner and Coppinger should benefit from the opportunity to pitch his way back into shape away from the pressure that comes with trying to produce at the major-league level.

Harold Reynolds has spent a good part of the past 10 years trying to make people happy, on the field and off.BBut in his first month with the Orioles, after 10 seasons with the Seattle Mariners that included three All-Star Game appearances and the 1991 Roberto Clemente Award for community involvement, Reynolds wasn't making anyone happy, least of all himself.Reynolds, the new Orioles second baseman, did little during April to make Baltimoreans forget cult hero Bill Ripken, the former Orioles second baseman, batting .146, with six hits in his first 41 at-bats.

Arthur Rhodes has hit a snag, namely a lack of control, on his way to returning to the Orioles starting rotation after knee surgery.Rhodes, who is on a rehabilitation assignment with the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings, has had a hard time finding the plate and has been wild enough to give manager Johnny Oates cause for concern."

The Orioles have one more chance to get off to a good start. They are looking at the second half of the 1993 season as a new beginning, and no one wants to waste it.Remember April, or are you trying to forget it? The Orioles started 5-13 and looked as if they were going to puncture a lot of inflated preseason expectations. They had slipped 10 1/2 games out of first place by late May, but came back to close within 1 1/2 at the All-Star break."It's a new start for us," manager Johnny Oates said.

SEATTLE -- On the surface, the final score of the Orioles' 11-4 loss to Seattle last night would indicate that Bob Milacki was totally ineffective.He wasn't. He probably deserved a better fate, but the big righthander knows he helped seal his own."How many times do you see me hit a guy?" asked Milacki, who plunked Edgar Martinez to start the first inning. "Then I walk the next guy [Harold Reynolds] and commit a balk. That cost me three runs."All three came in the first inning, and denied Milacki any margin for error later in the game.

The Seattle Mariners will honor Harold Reynolds tonight. They will reintroduce him to the Kingdome crowd during pre-game ceremonies and, no doubt, offer some token of appreciation for the 12 years he spent in the organization.It is unclear whether it will play out as a homecoming or a final farewell, but it doesn't seem to matter to the man of the moment. Reynolds has said his goodbyes, and he has found a new home."I'd just as soon sneak into town and sneak back out with three wins," he said, referring to the three-game series between the Orioles and Mariners that begins tonight in Seattle.
