This story can be titled either "Gresham's Travels" or, in an autobiographical sense, "My Grand Tour of the Oriole Farm System." Talk about moving around. Kris Gresham, a military brat growing up, has cornered the market.In early April, with the 40-man Orioles roster at a delayed spring training, Gresham, previously a backup, began the season as the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings' starting catcher.When the major-leaguers broke camp in late April, he was assigned to the Double-A Bowie Baysox, where catcher B. J. Waszgis had been earmarked for everyday play.

In a deal that reduces its legal, regulatory and fuel cost risks, Constellation Energy Group Inc. has reached a new long-term agreement to sell all the electricity produced at its unfinished High Desert Power Project to the California Department of Water Resources. The California agency will pay Constellation's Power Source unit $12.1 million per month for almost eight years, or $1.1 billion. A comprehensive settlement reached late Monday also releases Constellation from a complaint the state filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in February against companies with long-term power contracts with the California Department of Water Resources.

The Orioles made an acquisition yesterday, but his name is not Jay Buhner and he did not cost the club $16 million.His name is John DeSilva, a right-hander from the Los Angeles Dodgers farm system, and he only cost the Orioles minor-league left-hander John O'Donoghue.DeSilva, 27, comes recommended by Orioles manager Phil Regan, who managed DeSilva in Caracas last winter, and by Orioles coordinator of instruction Dave Jauss, who is coaching in Caracas, where DeSilva is pitching after a late arrival this winter.

If there is one conclusion to be drawn from the Orioles' minor-league results this summer, it is that the best is at the bottom.Although Triple-A Rochester squeezed into the International League playoffs as a second-place finisher in its division, the real power of the system is at the Single-A level or lower.Three teams, Single-A High Desert (41-29 second half) and rookie-league clubs Bluefield (42-26) and Gulf Coast (36-24), finished with a combined .601 winning percentage after June.Even Frederick (33-36 in the second half of the Carolina League)

Last Oct. 3, with the Orioles playing their final home game at Camden Yards, Jeff Wilson became engaged to his fiancee, Susan. Then an Arizona Diamondbacks farmhand, Wilson didn't know that he was soon to become Orioles property. "The mascot came by and gave her two dozen roses and everything," said the Bowie Baysox left-hander, who ranks seventh in the Double-A Eastern League with a 2.72 ERA. "Two months after that, the Orioles took me in the Rule 5 draft. It was ironic, almost eerie."

When Matt Snyder first heard the news, he admits he was a "little stunned."The Orioles organization wanted him to be a starting pitcher. Immediately."After having a lot of success as a reliever, I was a little upset. I didn't understand why," Snyder said.Now, Snyder not only understands the move, he endorses it heartily. He has evolved into the ace of the Bowie Baysox's rotation and undergone a personality revision.From the wacky, jittery, loosey-goosey closer, Snyder has turned into the patterned, precision-like Double-A starter who is nearer to the big leagues than ever.

The Orioles' search for a reserve outfielder had focused on former National League Rookie of the Year Jerome Walton, but it now appears that he will sign with the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves.Orioles general manager Pat Gillick considered Walton a perfect fit for the utility outfielder role because of his solid power statistics against left-handed pitching last year with the Cincinnati Reds, but has all but given up hope of signing him."My information is that he is leaning toward Atlanta," Gillick said.

Remember Sidd Finch, the fictional Sports Illustrated character who threw 168 mph?Nerio Rodriguez is almost as phenomenal a creation -- and he actually exists.A little more than a year ago, Rodriguez was a struggling Single-A catcher on the verge of getting released.Now, he's a reliever for the Orioles, pitching in the middle of a pennant race."I still can't believe it," said Jeff Morris, the minor-league pitching coach who helped convert Rodriguez last season at Single-A High Desert.Rodriguez, 23, probably will be sent to Triple-A Rochester when Armando Benitez comes off the disabled list, but he could rejoin the club when rosters expand Sept.
