Before there was a Brooks Robinson, there was a George Kell. Doug DeCinces had to supplant Robinson, and starting today, Mike Bordick becomes the answer to who followed Cal Ripken at shortstop.But while Robinson, DeCinces and now Bordick can forge new ground on the playing field, where success can easily be measured, Jim Hunter will have to replace the broadcasting legend of Jon Miller in both the radio booth and, just as importantly, in the minds of fans, where wins and losses aren't so precisely calculated.

MASN journalist Amber Theoharis, who has been the network's on-field reporter covering the Orioles since its inception, is shifting to a new role this year. Instead of covering the team on a day-to-day basis and providing live reports during and after games, she'll be focusing on interviews and features for the network's "Mid-Atlantic Sports Report," blogging regularly and filling in for Jim Hunter alongside Rick Dempsey on the "O's Extra" pre- and post-game shows when Hunter shifts into the booth for play-by-play.

We keep hearing about Erik Bedard's accelerated pace on the mound. Not seeing it so far in the first inning. Desperately need it. Bedard got the first two outs before three straight singles gave Tampa Bay a 1-0 lead. He also hit a batter. The morning and afternoon crews from 98 Rock are providing analysis on the station's broadcast of last night's game. Jim Hunter is doing play-by-play. The morning team is in the booth for the first five innings. Kirk McEwen, a fellow Old Mill High School grad, will take over Hunter's duties in the fourth.

Reaching into their past has become so commonplace for the Orioles, they have extended the practice to the broadcast booth. Joe Angel, who called the team's games as Jon Miller's partner on WBAL Radio (1090 AM) for four years, will return to the flagship station as lead play-by-play announcer - a move that affects holdovers Jim Hunter and Fred Manfra, among others. Orioles spokesman Bill Stetka confirmed Angel's hiring after the station's Web site unexpectedly released the news. "Joe will be part of our radio team," Stetka said.

If they gave points for aggressive contact in soccer, Arundel and Old Mill would have run the table in Gambrills last night.Sophomore halfback Kyle Beckerman scored in each half as unbeaten, No. 9-ranked Arundel outlasted Old Mill, 2-0, in a physical game at Steve Carroll Field.The Anne Arundel County inter-division match-up left the South's Arundel a perfect 5-0. The host Wildcats snapped Old Mill's four-game winning streak, leaving the North division Patriots 5-2-1 overall.Both coaches stopped short of saying the officials could have called the game tighter.

I WAS AFRAID it might come to this. The broadcasters are starting to fight back. The other night I was watching the Orioles' television broadcast and Jim Hunter - right between a wistful paean to Jay Gibbons and an attempt to convince Buck Martinez that Miguel Tejada should be immediately eligible for sainthood - leveled an unexpected broadside in the direction of The Sun's highly respected Page 2 columnist. OK, I figured what goes around comes around. Hunter has been sacked a few times on this page, so he's entitled to defend himself.

IT HAS BEEN a wonderful spring, but I fear there might soon be trouble - with a capital "T" - in Jimmyville. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Pete, how can you say there might be trouble in Jimmyville when the Orioles are still in first place and Jim Hunter is still glowing so brightly that there are rumors he's become a member of the Fantastic Four ?" That's true. The Orioles have shown admirable resilience and the new community has been able to abandon fossil fuels and depend entirely on the light coming off Hunter as an alternative energy source, so what's not to like?

Last night it was an umbrella. Tonight it'll be a set of baseball cards. Tomorrow night, a print of Pride of Baltimore II.The Orioles are celebrating the club's final 33 dates at Memorial Stadium with a different giveaway item each night. For each of the final 33 "Memorial Days," a corresponding number of items will be awarded to selected fans at that game. The winners, determined by random seat selection, will be flashed on the scoreboard during the game.Last night, for example, 33 umbrellas were given away.

Jim Hunter's first moments in the Orioles' radio booth yesterday were, to say the least, memorable.After Fred Manfra's generous introduction, welcoming the new lead voice to the area, Hunter sheepishly admitted that he hadn't turned his microphone on.If that's the extent of Hunter's problems in Baltimore -- and except for one blown call in the eighth, things went smoothly yesterday -- he'll have a long and healthy run behind the mikes of WBAL (1090 AM).Next...

IT SEEMS LIKE a long time ago, but it has been only three weeks since I boldly predicted the Orioles would finish second in the American League East ... and I thought I would come off looking like a homer. Now, I feel like one of Spiro Agnew's nattering nabobs of negativism. The Orioles just swept away the Tampa Bay Devil Rays (which would have been no small feat a year ago) and put some more air between them and the two supposedly dominant teams that were expected to divvy up the two playoff berths that generally come out of the division.

WELCOME to my new little corner of the sports world. Wipe your feet. Chances are, you've dropped by here before, maybe to pick up a TV listing or just to browse the Sports Digest for news of the latest NFL bail hearing. Chances are, you didn't stay very long, because it was obvious to you and everybody else that something was missing from the second page of The Sun's award-nominated sports section. Me. How frustrating it must have been to wait until Sunday and leaf through page after page of mundane sports copy to find Peter Schmuck's "On Baseball," only to begin the cycle again and again until that terrible day when all there was at the bottom of the page was a small gray box that said, sadly, "Peter Schmuck is on vacation," replaced on an interim basis by Joe Christensen or Roch Kubatko or - by popular demand - major league statistics.
