ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jeff Conine could have filled the first months of his post-baseball career with golf, fishing and travel - the usual pursuits that a 41-year-old man with financial security might enjoy. Instead, Conine, a 17-year veteran of six big league teams who had two stints with the Orioles, has spent long hours swimming, cycling and running in preparation for an ambitious triathlon schedule that will culminate in the Ironman world championship in Kona, Hawaii, in October.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Sam Perlozzo's pre-game talk with reporters yesterday started like so many of the others from the past week. Not long after walking off the field and into the dugout and picking his way through reporters to find a seat on the bench, the Orioles' manager is asked about the club's murky outfield situation. He talks fluidly about the pros and cons of several of his options without giving even the faintest hint of which direction he is leaning. "Sufficiently vague enough for you?"

SEATTLE - The Orioles and Florida Marlins have discussed a potential trade that would send Jeff Conine back to Florida for Derrek Lee, baseball sources confirmed yesterday. The Marlins first approached the Orioles about swapping the first basemen last week, but the talks have cooled, with Florida starting to play better. Orioles officials say they also have reservations about parting with one of their clubhouse leaders. Conine, 37, is batting .287 with 12 home runs and a team-high 63 RBIs.

The first five batters reached against Orioles starter Kris Benson in the second inning yesterday, starting with Jason Stokes, who reached them all after homering to left-center field. Lenny Harris, Wes Helms and Reggie Abercrombie singled, and Chris Gomez committed the first of his two errors. Helms' single came on a hit-and-run checked swing. Can't blame Benson for that one, or for Gomez's two fielding miscues. Benson threw three innings and took the loss. The Orioles scored once in the third on a leadoff double by David Newhan, an Ed Rogers single and a Val Majewski sacrifice fly. Newhan barely beat the throw from Abercrombie in center.

Yesterday, the Orioles conducted a drill on one of their back fields that provided a few laughs. Naturally, Jeff Conine and Kevin Millar were responsible. In the drill, third base coach Tom Trebelhorn created different game situations with the bases loaded, depending on where he hit the ball. Pitchers would have to cover first base on a grounder to the right side. Outfielders would chase down singles and throw to the plate. And each time Trebelhorn made contact, the "batter" would run to first.

Looking to add power and solid defense to an outfield that struggled in both areas last season, the Orioles are nearing an agreement with Chicago Cubs free agent Jeromy Burnitz. The Orioles are close to signing the outfielder to a two-year deal worth about $6 million a season, according to sources familiar with the negotiations. An agreement could be finalized by the end of this week. A left-handed hitter, Burnitz, who turns 37 in April and is one home run short of 300 for his career, batted .258 last season for the Cubs with 24 homers, 87 RBIs and a .322 on-base percentage.
