So let me tell you about my experiences at Camden Yards before I respond to the recent commentary suggesting Orioles fans should not cheer for Derek Jeter in his last appearance at the ballpark ( "Good riddance, Jeter," Sept. 11). I went to a game there in the early 1990s when a friend of mine invited me and one-handed pitcher Jim Abbott and outfielder Danny Tartabull were on the Yankees. My friend who is a Yankee fan invited two Orioles fans unbeknownst to me. Jim Abbott was throwing a shutout and the Yankees were up 6-0 by the third inning.

Can he hit 71?No. 3: Terry Mulholland doesn't know if he'll be in the rotation or pitching in relief. It appears he's needed most in the bullpen.No. 4: The lure of free-agent dollars may help Steve Trachsel break his disturbing pattern of pitching well only in even-numbered years.No.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles are better -- and in a better position to win the American League East -- than they were last season. But watch out for those New York Yankees with newcomers Wade Boggs, Jimmy Key and Jim Abbott.That's what manager Johnny Oates said in a question-and-answer session with The Sun last week. In fact, Oates said he thinks the Yankees are the most improved team in the division: "Talent-wise, I put New York right up there with Toronto."As for his own team, Oates is expecting big comebacks from Cal Ripken and Glenn Davis to propel the Orioles to more than the 89 victories they had in 1992.

California AngelsWhere they're coming from: Few people will remember that the Angels bettered their 1994 record by 32 games or that they won the last five games on their regular-season schedule. California's legacy is this: It led the Mariners by 12 1/2 games on Aug. 20, yet didn't win the West. The Angels lost a one-game playoff and finished at 78-67.Where they're going: They might not be in first place for 125 games again, but they'll end up there.Key newcomers: Second baseman Randy Velarde, rookie third baseman George Arias and starting pitchers Steve Ontiveros (out with an elbow injury)
