Poll results Last week we asked which former Oriole from the past five years would you like to see back with the team? More than 2,400 people responded, and New York Mets pitcher John Maine, traded two offseasons ago with Jorge Julio for Kris Benson, won in a landslide with nearly 65 percent of the vote. Former slugger Sammy Sosa, now with the Texas Rangers, received just 3 percent. The results: John Maine, 64.2 percent (1,566 votes) Gary Matthews Jr., 12 (292 votes) Eric Byrnes, 11.5 (281 votes)

NBA 51st pick McClinton seen as combo guard by Spurs After a longer than expected wait, Jack McClinton finally got the news late Thursday night: the former Calvert Hall and Miami Hurricanes guard was taken by the San Antonio Spurs in the second round of the NBA draft. He was the 51st overall pick. "It was crazy," McClinton said of the wait. "I just heard so many things, hearing the Knicks are going to take you at No. 29. But you don't know anything until it happens." Rumors of the Knicks' interest picked up steam when they acquired the Los Angeles Lakers' first-round pick.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - John Maine pitched a seven-inning no-hitter in the second game of a doubleheader with the Winston-Salem Warthogs last night to lead the Frederick Keys to a 3-0 victory in the Single-A Carolina League. Maine (1-0), making his second start since joining the Keys from lower-level Single-A Delmarva, struck out six. The Warthogs' only runner reached on an error by first baseman Mike Huggins, whose team-leading ninth home run gave Frederick a 1-0 lead. Maine, the Orioles' sixth-round pick in the 2002 amateur draft, earned the call-up from Delmarva by going 7-3 with a 1.53 ERA in 12 starts, striking out 108 and walking 18 in 76 1/3 innings.

Other than watching some videotape and taking a few more swings in the indoor batting cage, right fielder Jay Gibbons wasn't sure how to end a slump that lowered his average to .202 heading into last night. Maybe all it takes is a broken bat. Gibbons was 3-for-31 before singling twice last night. His first hit stayed in the infield, and scattered pieces of wood in the grass. He also looped a single into left field. "I'd almost rather hit line drives at somebody than have two cheapies," he said afterward.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - After signing his first professional contract with the Orioles in 2002, John Maine went out and set a ridiculously high standard for himself. He struck out nine of the first 10 batters he faced. For most pitchers, it would be downhill from there, but not Maine. He dominated the Single-A South Atlantic League last season for Delmarva, earning a promotion to Frederick of the Single-A Carolina League, and in his second start there, he tossed a no-hitter. The Orioles eventually named him their Minor League Pitcher of the Year.

John Maine might have completed more than a start yesterday, more than five shutout innings against a team that scored 12 runs the previous night. With each pitch he threw, it felt as though he were auditioning for a full-time job with the Orioles. "Yeah, I'd say so," interim manager Sam Perlozzo said. "I am, too. Why should it be any different for him?" The difference is Perlozzo already had his first major league win before yesterday. Maine gathered his own with a 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays before 29,445 at Camden Yards that became official when B.J. Ryan struck out Alex Rios for his 26th save.

BOSTON - According to major league sources, the Orioles are giving serious thought to trading closer Jorge Julio before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, with multiple teams showing interest in acquiring him as a primary setup man. Julio, who is making $385,000 this year, will be eligible for arbitration at season's end and could command about $3 million for next season. The Orioles know how valuable he could be to a contender, and if they can get the right players in return, they would move Julio, 25, and insert left-hander B.J. Ryan into the closer's role.

TORONTO - The Orioles have become a better offensive team this season, but their overall progress has been stunted by something they never expected: the continued struggles of their bullpen. A year ago, Orioles relievers were second in the American League with a 3.49 ERA. After yielding four runs in last night's 13-4 Toronto rout, the Orioles bullpen's ERA is 5.10, a difference of 1 1/2 runs per game. The cast is pretty much the same, with the exception of newcomer Kerry Ligtenberg, who has come in and posted a bullpen-low 3.14 ERA. But Jorge Julio, Buddy Groom, Willis Roberts, Rick Bauer and B.J. Ryan have been unreliable a year after forming the bedrock for the team.
