When John Oates turned on the TV in his Minneapolis hotel room Sunday night, the first thing he saw was Tony La Russa making a pitching change. The irony was not lost on Oates, who had just spent an entire weekend in Boston doing his best impersonation of the Oakland manager.Everyone chuckled when Oates talked of modeling the Orioles' bullpen after the A's, but in less than two weeks, that's exactly what he has done. Twice at Fenway he won using five pitchers -- a juggling act Frank Robinson failed to perform in the first 37 games.

Did you hear about Joe? That's what everyone says, chillingly, as if some awful accident has occurred.Kevin Hickey got the word early yesterday. Roland Hemond sat him down at the Orioles' hotel and told him. Some players see it coming.

You can scratch Craig Lefferts from the dwindling list of candidates for the fifth spot in the Orioles' starting rotation.The veteran left-hander yesterday signed a one-year contract with the Texas Rangers. Terms were not disclosed, but Lefferts likely will make less than half the $2.1 million he earned last year.After going 13-9 (3.69 ERA) for the San Diego Padres, Lefferts was obtained by the Orioles (for minor-league shortstop Ricky Gutierrez and pitcher Erik Schullstrom) for the last month of the 1992 season.
