Jesse Orosco, Orioles relieverHis top five things to do during the All-Star break:1. Just do as much as I can possibly do with my family. That is probably all five things together.2. Taking a little break from baseball is real nice.3. Catching up on some rest from all of the travel we do.4. Watching the All-Star Game, although this year I didn't see the whole game because I was in the park with my kids. I try to get them to sit down and watch the game with me. I tell them they are watching the greatest players in the world, but they look at the TV for a few minutes and then take off.5.

Arizona Diamondbacks Manager: Bob Brenly 2002 finish: 98-64, first place Story line: The Diamondbacks ran aground in the playoffs last year, but they'll have offensive cornerstone Luis Gonzalez back from injury and, of course, those two monsters in the starting rotation to lead them back into October. Changing faces: The acquisition of right-hander Elmer Dessens from the Reds makes the rotation more than a two-man operation, and the arrival of several veteran relievers - Mike Jackson, Ricky Bottalico and Manny Aybar - deepens the bullpen.

Highlights and lowlights from the Orioles' 9-8 victory over the New York Mets in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. UP - Delino DeShields: No, his first homer since Aug. 19 doesn't "count," but the Texas Rangers were on hand to take notice of the monster shot. UP - Ryan Minor: Another double amplified his spring training statement. EVEN - "The Next Mo Vaughn": Calvin Pickering slashed a double during the game-turning seventh but botched a toss. UP - Wayne Kirby: Yanked a game-tying homer off Jesse Orosco in the seventh.

BOSTON -- Armando Benitez sat at his locker with his head in his hands, sat there a good five minutes while his teammates gathered around two large tables to eat their post-game meals.Moments before, Benitez had suffered his first true adversity as a major-leaguer, giving up a game-winning, pinch-hit homer to Wes Chamberlain in the bottom of the ninth inning at Fenway Park.This is the test, for Benitez, for any young pitcher. Chamberlain circled the bases pumping his right arm high in the air. The first-place Boston Red Sox emptied their dugout to swarm him at home plate.

The models that first-year pitching coach Mike Flanagan draws from are two of his former coaches, George Bamberger and Ray Miller. They developed strong bonds with their regular communication.This is what Flanagan wanted to do with his pitchers in his first year, have that strong relationship. So his one big regret this season, Flanagan said yesterday, was the spring training time lost to the strike. "I know the relationship that I want to have [with the pitchers]," he said. "I don't know if I have it yet. " Flanagan knew many of the pitchers who had been with the organization, like Mike Mussina, Ben McDonald and Brad Pennington.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Orioles slipped into Kauffman Stadium yesterday riding their most powerful wave of the season. Their 16-7 April established them as a first-place team but a recent run that began July 21 allowed them to avert a calamitous meltdown surrounding the All-Star break.During the stretch the Orioles lost second baseman Roberto Alomar to the disabled list, inserted Rick Krivda into the rotation and emerged from a prolonged slump partially due to the awakening of recently acquired designated hitter Geronimo Berroa.

Within the same clubhouse, one player started 2,632 consecutive games and is one swing removed from 400 home runs. The bench coach is one of only three hitters to compile 500 home runs and 3,000 hits. The most accomplished designated hitter in history is in the house.But if a record falls in middle relief, does it make a noise?Jesse Orosco will be listening.In a summer devoted to what Cal Ripken calls baseball's "big, round numbers," Orosco is approaching one of the game's most understated but imposing records.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Aggressive offense and improved starting pitching have become the Orioles' second-half touchstone. Last night, in a game that meant the difference between a good road trip and an invigorating one, the streaking Orioles learned the power of patience.Now they get to preach it to their own front office.Four ninth-inning walks -- three straight with two outs -- and a two-run single by Cal Ripken gave the Orioles a 7-4 win over the Anaheim Angels and closer Troy Percival last night before 38,840 at Edison International Field.

Davey Johnson made it official last night that he is thinking long term. Pardon Mike Mussina if he doesn't join the celebration.With his two-run, two-strike home run in the eighth inning, right fielder Geronimo Berroa turned what looked like a seldom-seen bullpen defeat into a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Twins before 48,263, the largest crowd ever to see a regular-season game at Camden Yards.Mussina was four innings gone, last night's fall guy in a plan that now sees the first two weeks in September as more important than now.Berroa turned the game against Twins reliever Greg Swindell (7-3)

SEATTLE -- They don't come easy at the Kingdome. The Seattle Mariners always seem to have the last word here, so the Orioles had to feel fortunate to sneak away with a 4-3, extra-inning victory last night and a split of the quick two-game series.It certainly beat the alternative, which remained a possibility right up until Randy Myers retired Rich Amaral in the bottom of the 11th to secure his 32nd save of the season and send the Orioles off to Anaheim with a little more padding on their American League East lead.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Sitting down and taking a day off, in theory, can almost sound appealing, especially if you're coming back from reconstructive knee surgery, as is Orioles outfielder Jeffrey Hammonds.But when it's the beginning of the season and everybody is getting cranked up and your name disappears from the lineup for a couple of days, that's hard.That Hammonds has sat out the last two days is not a surprise. Orioles manager Phil Regan said he was going to keep Hammonds off the Metrodome artificial surface in two of the four games with the Twins.

ATLANTA -- The hard-luck Pirates became martyrs when they lost the National League playoffs in the ninth inning of Game 7. But if you go down with Stan Belinda on the mound, don't you deserve to go down?The Braves' fortunes in this World Series began going south, no pun intended, when the Blue Jays' Ed Sprague and Candy Maldonado solved Jeff Reardon in the ninth innings of Game 2 and Game 3. But were the Braves the only ones who didn't know the 37-year-old Reardon had lost speed on his fastball?

NEW YORK -- It started as soon as the madness of Game 1 was over Wednesday night."We came into the clubhouse and immediately started saying, 'That one is over. Put it behind us,' " Jesse Orosco said after Game 2 yesterday.Easier said than done with The Kid Who Saved the Yankees rubbing it in their faces yesterday on the morning shows and the front pages of the tabloids."He was even on 'Regis and Kathie Lee,' " someone said to Brady Anderson yesterday."Ah," Anderson said, feigning interest.
