Athletics@Orioles 7 p.m. [MASN2] Once upon a time, this series would be a playoff preview - 1971, 1973, 1974. Vida Blue vs. Jim Palmer. Catfish Hunter vs. Mike Cuellar. Ken Holtzman vs. Dave McNally. The funny uniforms and mustaches didn't mean those Oakland guys couldn't play ball. And now we have two teams sunk in double-digit deficits below .500. Maybe a mustache or two would help?

Orioles pitcher Jim Palmer, the 45-year-old Hall of Famer who bucked convention to make a comeback after six seasons away from the game, sadly acknowledged yesterday that it's just not in the cards.After two disastrous innings against the Boston Red Sox in an exhibition game Monday, Palmer conceded yesterday that he had gotten a severe hamstring injury in practice, and he just won't be able to carry on. It's easy to admire his decision, given the physical punishment an athlete of any age must endure in training, and the ridicule so often meted out by fair-weather fans to those who insist on learning the hard way it's time to quit.

I don't remember a thing about the 1966 World Series, except for what I've read and heard. If you're like me, or if you want to relive some wonderful memories, it would be wise to visit The Murphy Fine Arts Center on the campus of Morgan State University on Oct. 19. The connection? The Babe Ruth Museum is presenting a reunion of the '66 team, and about 20 members are expected to attend. It will be fashioned after the popular 1950s television show This Is Your Life, with manager Hank Bauer joining his players and swapping stories.

WEATHER and the gods cooperating, he was to take the mound again today -- 45-year-old Jim Palmer, driven by who-knows-what to return to baseball. The graceful Oriole pitching legend is trying to defy the long, long odds, and cynics and romantics alike can only root for him.One's mind fast-reverses to a fall day a quarter-century ago. Oct. 6, 1966. Game 2 of the World Series between world champion Los Angeles Dodgers and upstart AL winners, the Orioles of Baltimore, paced by triple-crown winner Frank Robinson.

Sure, Cal Ripken is having a banner year and a most productive career, but he has not dislodged No. 5, Brooks Robinson, from his exalted spot as the greatest Oriole of all-time, according to respondents to "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's phone survey on topical issues.The Hall of Fame third baseman was selected by 249 of the 646 callers (38.5 percent), with Ripken finishing second (25 percent). They were followed by Eddie Murray (15.5 percent), Frank Robinson (13) and Jim Palmer (8).TTC "It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

A Baltimore County judge ordered former Orioles pitcher Jim Palmer yesterday to pay his ex-wife $1,809 as compensation for three pieces of art that were missing when the couple's collection was auctioned in November. Circuit Judge Susan M. Souder also ordered the trustee who oversaw the auction to pay Joan H. Palmer $1,809 from the $2,485 escrow account set up after the sale, bringing the total payment to $3,618. Geoffrey H. Genth, Joan Palmer's attorney, said yesterday that the ruling means the judge agreed that his client is entitled to the full value of the artwork -- a vase, a bronze sculpture of a jockey on a horse, and a wooden turning bowl.

I have been putting off this post for a couple of weeks. It's about Mike Bordick's performance on MASN as an analyst on Orioles games. It started with a colleague, who is usually a keen observer of sports media, casually stopping me in the newsroom to say, "Z, you gotta write about Bordick. " As he said it, he shook his head side to side, winced and gestured with two thumbs down. So, I started watching and listening to the likable former Orioles shortstop. Instead of jumping into print with what I saw after a couple of games though, I also started asking other media types who watch a lot of Orioles baseball about their impressions of him. Representative of what I mainly heard was this: "Geez, Z, you're not going to rip Bordick, are you?
