Last Week's questionL Do you think the Orioles' highly touted offense is overratedYES -- 32%NO --- 68%The Orioles' offense is very highly overrated. For one, they don't have a true No. 2 hitter and they certainly don't have a true number No. 4. The Orioles can't get by having Cal Ripken as their fourth hitter. [Owner Peter] Angelos is spending way too much money on aging players when he should just spend a lot of money on one big free agent in his prime."E. J. Shipley"I know there's a school of thought up there that pitching and defense wins baseball games, but when the other team beats you, 2-0, you've got real offensive problems.
