Sitting in the visiting clubhouse at Yankee Stadium in April, wearing Toronto blue and a solemn look, Raul Mondesi mentioned how much he would love to be a Yankee someday. Having cut his teeth in the Los Angeles Dodgers' organization, Mondesi was aching to be back in the spotlight again, away from the sterile confines of SkyDome, where the Blue Jays have drawn mostly miserable crowds for years. Mondesi even hinted that Baltimore and Camden Yards would be a nice fit. "I need fans," Mondesi said.

LOS ANGELES - It was supposed to be paradise. Former Orioles assistant general manager Kevin Malone and former Orioles manager Davey Johnson were reunited in Los Angeles and handed the keys to what used to be a major-league kingdom. The Dodgers needed a jumpstart. Money was no object. What could possibly go wrong? It is two years later, and almost everything has. The club remains an expensive underachiever. Malone's dynamic personality, which made him a popular figure in Baltimore, has become a liability in La-La Land.

Jeffrey Hammonds' agent said the outfielder would welcome a trade following the Orioles' decision not to invite Hammonds to travel and work out with the team during the playoffs.Hammonds, the Orioles' No. 1 pick in the 1992 amateur draft and a major-leaguer for parts of four seasons, injured his left knee Aug. 15 and did not play for the Orioles after being activated from the disabled list Sept. 22. At the time, manager Davey Johnson said Hammonds did not play because he was rusty, the Orioles were fighting for playoff position and the team was worried that Hammonds might aggravate the injury.

The Orioles, trying to augment their club for the final month, are looking into acquiring third baseman Kevin Seitzer from the Milwaukee Brewers and have talked to the Pirates about several of Pittsburgh's most expensive players.The Orioles have asked the Brewers what they want for Seitzer, hitting .316 with 12 homers and 62 RBIs for the Brewers. Orioles assistant general manager Kevin Malone would neither confirm nor deny the talks with Milwaukee.If the Orioles acquired Seitzer -- who has cleared waivers and also has attracted interest from the Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians -- they probably would play him at third base and move B. J. Surhoff to the outfield.

In June, the Orioles appeared ready to trade for David Segui but instead acquired Geronimo Berroa. Nearly six months later, they appeared ready to keep Berroa but instead signed Joe Carter after again pursuing Segui.Are we having fun yet?Not if the Orioles remain unsettled at DH.The position is their Bermuda Triangle, in part because Paul Molitor has spurned them twice in the past three years for his hometown Minnesota Twins.When it happened again last Sunday, the Orioles retained Harold Baines as their left-handed DH by offering him salary arbitration.

TORONTO -- Before the game, the wait had seemed almost intolerable. Afterward, it bordered on magical.Davey Johnson smiled easily. Assistant general manager Kevin Malone roamed a busy clubhouse. Desperately needing a win, the Orioles rediscovered some magic last night. It hitched a ride into SkyDome on the rookie right arm of Nerio Rodriguez, transferred to Roberto Alomar's second-inning stare-down of Roger Clemens and reached the late innings on a seamless bullpen effort by Arthur Rhodes, Armando Benitez and Randy Myers.

If the Orioles hoped for last February to represent a seamless extension of the previous summer, they intend for Friday's official opening of spring training to represent an abrupt break from a lost season.When pitchers and catchers report to Fort Lauderdale Stadium, 144 days will have passed since a 79-83 season closed. Frank Wren's October naming as general manager also was meant to signal an end to organizational factionalism. A subsequent roster renovation was intended to restore purpose to a team lampooned as too old, too indifferent and divided.

Citing a desire for innovation, common direction and greater emphasis on international scouting, the Orioles named Florida Marlins executive Frank Wren yesterday as the ninth general manager in the club's 35-year history.The selection of Wren, 40, concluded a hectic 36 hours that began Thursday with an early-morning phone call from majority owner Peter Angelos and an agreement on a guaranteed three-year contract reached early yesterday afternoon. Terms were not disclosed.Angelos was similarly impressed by the qualifications of the four finalists for the job, but chose the former Marlins assistant general manager because of an instant rapport that developed between the two, according to Orioles chief operating officer Joe Foss.
