Nice four-hit shutout by John Maine on Friday night, but I have no regrets over the Orioles trading him to the New York Mets for Kris Benson. If a young starting pitcher had to be sacrificed, and that's usually how these deals work, Maine was a good choice. I'd still rather have Daniel Cabrera, and his huge upside, in the system. If only he could find a league that had a huge strike zone. Shea Hillenbrand won't be coming to the Orioles. The Blue Jays traded him to the San Francisco Giants, which means Hillenbrand no longer will be the biggest jerk in his clubhouse.

For a long time, Boston third baseman Shea Hillenbrand was a player without a position. Now, he has helped put the Red Sox in position to challenge for the American League East title. Hillenbrand entered yesterday batting .342 with five home runs and 20 RBIs. Two of those home runs came against the Orioles on April 7 at Camden Yards. He was back this week and had another productive series, going 4-for-13 with two doubles and three runs scored. "He knows exactly what he wants to do at the plate, and he's tough," said Red Sox hitting coach Dwight Evans.

Can't we all just get along? It isn't even football season yet and Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb are at it again. Frankly, I expected Donovan to take the high road after T.O. re-ignited their running feud with his new tell-all book, T.O., but McNabb always seems to take the bait. He labeled Owens' autobiography a "children's book" and disputed many of the revelations included in it during a media session Friday, as if there is anyone out there who needs to be reminded that T.O. is a major loon who would say just about anything to get on SportsCenter.

When Shea Hillenbrand was traded from Boston to Arizona in May 2003, it was a mixed blessing. He was leaving a perennial contender and the only organization he had known. At least he was going home, he figured. Hillenbrand went to high school and junior college in Arizona. He and his wife have a house there. He was comfortable there. In January, Hillenbrand was traded again, this time to the Toronto Blue Jays -- his third organization in two years. "It was tough," Hillenbrand said earlier this week.

STRATFORD, Conn. - The cool evening mist doesn't penetrate the ground beneath this beech tree in Stratford. Near here, monk parakeets native to South America, the descendants of long-ago escapees, have built their intricate nests. This is a favorite walk of Stratford poet Norah Pollard. She enjoys the juxtaposition of craggy fishermen and women on a nearby dock and the delicate green birds meant for cages. The beech's trunk is covered with whirls and folds that look, says the poet, like body sex-parts.

With the Orioles off to their worst start since 1993, manager Mike Hargrove gathered his players for a brief post-game meeting yesterday. The Orioles' slumbering offense had just made Pedro Martinez look superhuman again, and Shea Hillenbrand had just hit two home runs to give the Boston Red Sox a 4-1 victory before 33,790 at Camden Yards. So with the losing streak at five games, and the collective batting average at .167, Hargrove told his players to enjoy their day off today before beginning a three-game series with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

It seems audiences can't get enough of either Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling book, Seabiscuit: An American Legend, or the film it inspired as they cram into theaters during the waning days of summer. For David Woods of Longmeadow, Mass., and his sister, Martha McMakin of Walsenburg, Colo., the book and movie bring back warm memories of their father, David F. Woods. Woods, the director of public relations during the halcyon years of the Maryland Jockey Club, helped make the 1938 match race between War Admiral and Seabiscuit a reality.

WASHINGTON - Nine days before Seabiscuit's national debut, filmmaker Gary Ross, who previously wrote the hit comedies Big and Dave and wrote and directed the subversive fantasy Pleasantville, sat in a D.C. cafe and said: "Sometimes we give ourselves a little too much credit for the way things are rendered. Sometimes what gives our work its impact are the facts and power of the story." (The movie opens across the country Friday and receives its Maryland premiere tonight at the Senator, in a sold-out benefit for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Maryland Horse Industry Foundation.

BOSTON - The Orioles fell back into last place yesterday. Their top starting pitcher had blood all over his right middle finger. Their hitters were melancholy after getting shut out for the second time in a young season. But their manager, Mike Hargrove, still summed up the weekend in Boston like this: "I think we feel better about ourselves coming out of here than we did coming in." Two rainouts turned the weekend into a nightmare task of facing Pedro Martinez on Saturday, followed by Derek Lowe yesterday.

Laura Hillenbrand's book, Seabiscuit: An American Legend, remains perched for the 59th week on The New York Times best-seller list. It is being translated into 14 languages. And now, the colorful story of the Depression-era racehorse is being made into a movie. Filming started Monday, and the movie is scheduled for release by Christmas 2003. Hillenbrand, who lives in Washington, has served as a consultant, discussing the rags-to-riches story with the screenwriter as well as the actors.

Trot Nixon and Shea Hillenbrand homered yesterday for the Boston Red Sox, who fell behind briefly before rallying to defeat the Orioles, 6-3, in Fort Myers, Fla. Boston grabbed a 1-0 lead in the third on a leadoff double by Lou Merloni -- right fielder Jay Gibbons took a poor angle on the ball -- and a broken-bat single by Adrian Brown. The Orioles took a 2-1 lead against Ramiro Mendoza in the fourth, getting a run-scoring double by Jeff Conine and an RBI single from Gibbons. Nixon hit a two-run homer off Rick Helling in the fourth, and Hillenbrand hit a three-run shot off John Stephens in the fifth.
