The brick facade, the brick archways, the brick fence piers -- Joe Carter had a hand in them all.A bricklayer for 36 years, Carter, 52, had been laid off from another job last March when a foreman called him to work at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. As many as two dozen bricklayers at a time spent a year at the site, where the brickwork was animportant design feature meant to link the new stadium to the old brick buildings around downtown."There are about 30 [actually 26] arches," said Carter, a member of Bricklayers' and Allied Craftsmen Union No. 1 of Maryland.

Rays landing Myers Juan C. Rodriguez Sun Sentinel The Dodgers signing Zack Greinke or one of the Blue Jays' trades will have plenty of short-term impact. In terms a move having the longest-lasting positive effect on a franchise, let's go with the Rays acquiring a future cornerstone player in outfielder Wil Myers from the Royals. The Rays dealt from a position of strength, moving pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis, and they also got back two promising arms in Jake Odorizzi and Mike Montgomery to add to a young, talented stable.

Book it: Orioles' plight is sum of this fan's fears I never thought I would live to see the Orioles get local ownership again, only to have that person destroy what little was left of the "Oriole Way." We now have a situation that cries out for a new slogan to define the future postseason prospects of the Orioles (keeping in mind that Tom Clancy is still a minority owner) - "The Hunt For Dead October." Joseph White Belcamp Let cheerleaders lead; don't forget PSL holders Finally, something of interest to read in The Sun sports section.

Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken should win the AL MVP award when tomorrow's vote is announced, according to those who responded to Friday's "It's Your Call" question.Of the 648 who responded, Ripken garnered a whopping 79 percent of the vote, while Minnesota's Kirby Puckett (9 percent), Detroit's Cecil Fielder (7 percent) and Toronto's Joe Carter (5 percent) were hardly noticed."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.

REMEMBER when the Maryland Chamber of Commerce used to gather for its annual convention -- on the farther side of the Mason and Dixon Line, at the Bedford Springs Hotel in Pennsylvania? The implication being that nowhere in Maryland was there a spa up to convention-goer standards. How we bystanders groaned.So, next week some 500 members of the Pennsylvania Bar Association will be assembling for four days of work and fun. Where? By the Patapsco waterside, at the Stouffer Harborplace Inn, some distance from Pennsylvania.

On Tuesday, he started his 16th straight All-Star Game. Last night, Cal Ripken could have become an easy way out for manager Jimy Williams and the Boston Red Sox. Except this time the Iron Man didn't bend.Foiling Williams' eighth-inning strategy that saw B. J. Surhoff intentionally walked to reach the Orioles' No. 7 hitter with two outs, Ripken looped an RBI single off Jim Corsi (2-1) to score Eric Davis for the decisive run in the Orioles' 3-2 win before 48,014 at Camden Yards. In the course of a 39-50 season that has consistently flogged the Orioles in close situations, Ripken's flare at least broke a crushing string of one-run losses.

Sidney Ponson -- UP -- The 21-year-old rookie justified Ray Miller's faith against the Yankees on Tuesday night with 6 2/3 dominant innings. As an Aruban in the major leagues, he is a rarity. As an organizational find, he is rarer still.Mike Mussina -- EVEN -- Three starts since returning from Sandy Alomar's harrowing line drive haven't helped him rediscover his comfort zone. He has been effective but not dominant. Without a safety net, the Orioles need him to again be fail-safe.Injury epidemic -- DOWN -- Scott Kamieniecki is in traction.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Two weeks ago the Orioles comforted themselves by insisting that they were experiencing nothing more than an early-season slump. Since, they have tumbled into the worst losing streak in a decade, causing manager Ray Miller to rip his clubhouse following Friday night's loss in Oakland and forcing the front office to contemplate an overhaul of an aged, seemingly indifferent club.Last Tuesday, majority owner Peter Angelos insisted the club would not be taken apart until a wild-card berth seemed improbable.

The memo landed on Peter G. Angelos' law office desk early Friday afternoon. The message was cryptic in both delivery and content.The sender: anonymous.The script: a mega-trade involving Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Mike Piazza to the Florida Marlins is imminent. The dead-in-the-water defending world champions, committed to slicing and dicing their payroll to $12 million over the objection of manager Jim Leyland, are then a cinch to recycle Piazza to a contender before August.Translation: Mr. A, Get Involved!

Mike Mussina was bumped back a day to prevent him from pitching with nine days' rest.Joe Carter -- UP -- OK, the right fielder/designated hitter hasn't gone deep yet and, yeah, he has committed two errors. But his five RBIs in Kansas City accounted for the difference in both wins.Schedule guy -- DOWN -- Two off days within a span of four days thanks to a day off in Kansas City.
