Fact: My favorite question from the polygraph exam Rafael Palmeiro's agent set up last June to help Palmeiro prove his innocence: "Do you recall ever secretly doing anything that would have caused shame or dishonor to your family?" Opinion: Maybe it's just me, but I think this would have been a better question to ask: "Have you ever taken steroids?" Fact: My second-favorite question from the exam: "In the past year, did you ever seriously think about violating your personal beliefs by doing something unlawful?"

The Oakland Athletics ran off a 20-game winning streak and won baseball's toughest division. The Anaheim Angels stayed right with them down the stretch and earned their first postseason berth in 16 years. The St. Louis Cardinals are a compelling team with a compelling tale, as are the defending World Series champion Arizona Diamondbacks, the uncontractable Minnesota Twins and regular-as-clockwork Atlanta Braves. But it always seems to come down to the Yankees. The bell is about to ring and they again must be considered the team to beat in this year's three-tiered postseason tournament.

DETROIT - To anyone who believes justice delayed is justice denied, Pat Hentgen offered a convincing rebuttal last night at Comerica Park. The Orioles' Opening Day starting pitcher had done everything within his power to win his first four starts, only to be handed an 0-2 record through bad luck and poor offensive support. The Orioles had scored eight runs in his starts, only three with him still in the game. In a perverse way, it was as if they decreed Hentgen wait until last night's coming-home party before giving him his due. Benefiting from his team's third consecutive double-digit hit game, Hentgen (1-2)

DETROIT -- The standings say the Orioles had won six of their past 10. Last night's effort against the Detroit Tigers suggested something far less flattering.Once again lost against a struggling pitcher whose effectiveness outweighed his reputation, the Orioles stumbled to a 5-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers before an unusually large crowd of 37,600 at creaking Tiger Stadium. For a highlight, the Orioles could cite Cal Ripken's pre-game exchange of the lineup card or emergency starter Doug Johns surviving five innings with a defense that treated every bunt as if it were a live explosive.
