FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- With Jesse Garcia, it's the little things that seem to get him noticed.Like the time he began shouting commands at the other infielders just as Orioles coach Sam Perlozzo was about to apprise Garcia of the given situation. Or during the 11th inning of Sunday's exhibition in Havana, when Garcia made a diving stop at second base with two outs and had the presence of mind to wipe his hand on his pants leg as he spun to throw."His knowledge of the game and his calm under pressure are what impresses me every bit as much as his physical skills," Perlozzo said.

Five years ago, a group of wide-eyed minor-leaguers stood near the door of the Orioles' spring-training clubhouse in Sarasota, Fla., waiting to catch a glimpse of Cal Ripken.Jesse Garcia was 20 then, starting his second professional season. Summoning all his courage, he asked Ripken to sign two baseballs that day, one for himself, one for his father."I was so nervous, I dropped one of the balls right in front of him," Garcia said.For all anyone knew at the time, meeting Ripken might have turned out to be the highlight of a career that looked less than promising.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Orioles manager Ray Miller said he had a "little discussion" yesterday with left-hander Arthur Rhodes, who turned in one of the worst performances by an Orioles reliever this spring in Tuesday's 11-10 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Given a five-run lead to protect in the ninth, Rhodes allowed four runs and walked three in two-thirds of an inning. By the time Jesse Orosco got the final out, Rhodes already had stormed into the clubhouse. It was the second straight time Rhodes couldn't close a game in the ninth.
