MILWAUKEE -- Jeff Huson and Jeff Manto are very similar. Both are 30 years old. Both have bounced around the minor leagues. Both have thought about quitting the game in recent years, even when they've been sure they can play in the majors.Huson, in fact, briefly thought about ending his career earlier this month, the culmination of 2 1/2 years of frustration and two months away from his family. But Sunday night, Huson got a reprieve; he was called up by the Orioles, after Manto pulled a hamstring muscle and was placed on the disabled list.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Jeff Huson, a former infielder with the Texas Rangers and now in camp with the Orioles, has many friends who are on strike. He also has friends, other minor-leaguers in other camps, who are being forced by the owners and the union to choose sides.With all this running through his mind, Huson, 30, stood up before Saturday's workout and told the other Orioles minor-leaguers they should realize how lucky they are. We have an owner, Huson said, referring to Peter Angelos, who is taking the pressure off us. We don't have to make choices.

Not only did the Orioles lose their regular third baseman in Friday night's game -- they also lost one of his backups.B. J. Surhoff, who sprained his ankle on a strange play, was placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday, along with utility man Jeff Huson, who somehow injured his left knee after he pinch ran for Surhoff.To replace Surhoff and Huson on their roster, the Orioles called up outfielder Mark Smith from Triple-A Rochester and right-hander Esteban Yan from Double-A Bowie.Surhoff was running to first base on a grounder hit to the left of Seattle second baseman Joey Cora in the sixth inning, when Cora's off-balance throw drilled him in the left ear. Surhoff, staggered by the throw, stepped awkwardly and turned his ankle inward.

LOS ANGELES -- The Orioles dispensed with a little more off-season business yesterday, signing right-handed reliever Alan Mills and utility infielder Jeff Huson to one-year contracts.Mills (3-0, 7.43 ERA), who was sidelined much of last season by a shoulder injury, agreed to a slight pay cut, accepting a base salary of $540,000 with incentives that will allow him to equal his 1995 salary of $600,000.Huson (.248 in 161 at-bats), got a modest raise, signing for $320,000, with incentives that could move him up significantly if the club needs him to play more than a utility role.

DETROIT -- The fate of manager Phil Regan, to be determined at the end of the season, will affect the entire organization. But his future, whether he is retained, reassigned or fired, means more to some players than to others.If Regan is let go, Cal Ripken still will be here, and so will Mike Mussina, Chris Hoiles, Bobby Bonilla. That is not necessarily true for some of the more replaceable Orioles, such as utility man Jeff Huson, whose job status could be linked directly to that of Regan.

Who's on third?The answer will only be a matter of history, but true to form in this disastrous season, the Orioles don't know for sure."I wonder if Phil [Regan] accepts bribes," Jeff Manto said."I'd be willing," Jeff Huson added."Give him a pair of spikes, that might do it," Manto said.For weeks, the two journeymen have been needling each other, trying to figure out who would start at third base the night Cal Ripken broke Lou Gehrig's consecutive-games record.Now, it appears Huson has hit the lottery.

"War of the Worlds, martians invading. Cal Ripken injured. Had to be a hoax.But the radio announcers repeated the news again and again, and Mills finally was convinced. "I mean, it's Cal Ripken," Mills said.

Darryl Strawberry, who spent most of this season in the independent Northern League, signed with the New York Yankees yesterday and homered twice in his first game with their Triple-A club in Columbus, Ohio. He is tentatively scheduled to make his Yankees debut in Baltimore during a four-game series right after the All-Star break.The Orioles began scouting Strawberry a few days ago, and a source close to Strawberry said the Orioles were prepared to offer him a minor-league contract if the team was impressed by his play.

On the field: SkyDome fans gave Roberto Alomar a lot of respectful cheers in his first at-bat Monday, but with each at-bat, the booing directed at him gets progressively worse. He's responded with hits and defense. He was involved in two double plays in the first three innings last night.In the dugout: Orioles general manager Pat Gillick and manager Davey Johnson will have a tough decision to make when Jeff Huson comes back from knee surgery sometime in the next two weeks. They'll have to cut someone to add Huson, who went 7-for-16 in four games for Single-A Frederick, and then 0-for-4 in his first game with Double-A Bowie on Monday.

Brady Anderson is moving from a career year to what may be a record-setting one.After hitting two home runs and driving in five runs Sunday night, the Orioles center fielder is on pace to break the all-time mark for RBIs by a leadoff man (85), set by Harvey Kuenn in 1956."It's too early to think about that right now," said Anderson, who has 49 RBIs and whose 23rd and 24th home runs improved upon his previous high of 21, which he accomplished in 1992. "Back then [in 1992], I didn't think about breaking the record as much as I should.

Ripken pulled up, and the ball ticked off Huson's glove just before he was undercut by Smith, sliding low. Trainer Richie Bancells checked on Huson, who bruised his left arm, but Huson stayed in the game.In the dugout: For the second straight night, Scott Erickson was available out of the bullpen.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Orioles and Royals went 16 innings Saturday night, and both teams just stopped hitting as relievers for both teams dominated. In fact, the Orioles had only three base-runners in the final six innings of the 7-6 loss.But that often happens in extra innings, and Orioles hitting coach Rick Down didn't hesitate in offering an explanation."It's because hitters want to do a little bit more than they usually do," Down said. "They all want to be the hero. Not everybody, but in general, they want to end it with one swing.

Orioles pitching coach Pat Dobson has started calling pitches from the bench in some key situations.Almost all of the time catchers Chris Hoiles and Gregg Zaun call pitches from behind home plate, but they've looked to the bench for help about a half-dozen times the last two weeks.For example, Thursday night Jimmy Haynes was pitching with the bases loaded when Zaun looked to the dugout and Dobson called a pitch that resulted in a groundout. Other times, the catcher is signaled from the bench if he hasn't yet looked over.
