ON A DAY for mothers, it seems appropriate to remind Orioles fans of some of mom's pearls of wisdom. If you can't say something nice about somebody, don't say anything at all. Don't look down on those less fortunate than you. And never, ever celebrate the misfortune of others, even if they are mean, even if they are bullies, even if they are, well, the spiraling-out-of-control New York Yankees. Stop your snickering, Orioles fans. Stop your taunting. Or we'll have to wash your mouth out with soap.

Ivan Rodriguez received his first offer from the Orioles last night, and in a surprise development, Japanese slugger Hideki Matsui received one, too. Orioles officials returned from the winter meetings and put their fax machine through a workout, sending offers to Rodriguez and Matsui that could add significant power to their stagnant offense. Jim Beattie, the Orioles' executive vice president, declined to specify the length or financial terms of the two proposals, but he did say the club will add both players if it can. "We're ready to sign both of them."

The Orioles worked to establish their first contact with Japanese slugger Hideki Matsui yesterday after receiving a letter he sent to all 30 major-league teams. Orioles vice president for baseball operations Syd Thrift said he sent an e-mail to Matsui, expressing the club's interest. The club later sent Matsui an overnight package with brochures and other information about Baltimore, the Orioles and Camden Yards. Once contact is established, the Orioles might follow with an offer, but Thrift and Orioles owner Peter Angelos would not specify.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The search for a big bat could take the Orioles overseas and lead them to Japanese slugger Hideki Matsui. It could also lead them to five-time All-Star Frank Thomas. The Orioles have expressed interest in four of the top hitters on the free-agent market, including Cleveland Indians first baseman Jim Thome, but now they have other options. High-ranking Orioles sources say Thomas expressed interest in signing with the Orioles yesterday, through his agent, Arn Tellem. The sources also indicated that the team is gathering information on Matsui, who hit 50 home runs last season in Japan.
