If Jason Johnson keeps pitching well, a former Oriole may get a thank-you card in the mail. Johnson, who is 2-0 with a 1.83 ERA in his first three starts with the Cleveland Indians, said he has been using a refined sinker with a grip taught to him by sinker specialist Scott Erickson when the two were Orioles teammates. "I like it a lot," Johnson said. "I am comfortable with it now." Johnson showed it off Tuesday, when he allowed just one run in seven innings in his former home park. The first seven outs he recorded came on grounders - a departure from the Johnson that Baltimore knows.

Earlier this year, when Jake Arrieta was named the Orioles' youngest Opening Day starter since Mike Mussina, he talked about the magnitude of the honor and the leadership responsibility it carried. Feeling fully recovered from August elbow surgery, Arrieta said he was ready for the role, and, on April 6, he pitched a two-hit shutout, backing up his words with his talented right arm. Two months later, after a 9-6 shellacking Friday night by the scuffling Philadelphia Phillies that perhaps was the worst outing his career, Arrieta is likely out of the rotation and headed to Triple-A Norfolk.

IT WAS JUST A HOBBY WHEN JASON Miccolo Johnson began photographing life within African-American churches in 1995, but Johnson says he always knew the 10-year project would serve as a historical marker of one culture's spiritual experience. Published this year, Soul Sanctuary: Images of the African American Worship Experience (Bulfinch) is a pictorial documentary book that led Johnson to 200 Christian churches in 25 states, including 13 in Maryland. "Sooner or later, everybody comes through, comes by or comes around the black church," Johnson says.

A scout's take On Cole Hamels, 22-year-old left-handed starter for the Philadelphia Phillies; 1-3 record, 4.41 ERA in 6 games Pitches -- He's got three solid big league pitches: an above-average fastball, curveball and changeup. His fastball is 88 to 93 mph. His curveball is ... not over the top, but it has a good, sharp break. He throws all of his pitches for strikes. Makeup -- He's a Southern California kid, a real good young man. He's going to make normal, young mistakes, but he has poise beyond his years.

With every well-placed 96-mph fastball on the outside corner, with every hard breaking pitch that buckled the knees of a Los Angeles Angels hitter, the concern surrounding Daniel Cabrera dissipated last night. Cabrera's first two outings had been marked by wildness, but last night, the enigmatic Orioles right-hander was nearly flawless in shutting down the Angels, 4-2, in front of 15,691 at Camden Yards.

"How can you get angry with the Vikings for playing to their talent level? They lost a few too many games early and won a few too many during their streak." Tom Powers St. Paul Pioneer Press columnist "Brett Favre is passing the torch these days a lot better than he's passing the football." Don Pierson Chicago Tribune columnist "It hasn't been as hard as people would think. Because once we found our way of doing things, we just stuck with it. It's been the discipline and the strength of your belief in what you are doing that has made this possible."
