Anna Benson is on the phone from Atlanta, and if you have to ask "Who's Anna Benson?" you should probably pick up the morning paper once in a while or at least turn on the 11 o'clock news. If you did, you'd know Anna Benson is the neck-snapping, poker-playing, pistol-packing ex-stripper-turned-model-wife of pitcher Kris Benson, who was just traded to the Orioles by the New York Mets and who may become the answer to the question "Who's that guy with Anna?" if his wife keeps saying all these outrageous things every time there's a TV camera, microphone or notebook around.

UNSUNG HERO Right-handed reliever Dennis Sarfate didn't factor into the decision, but he was easily the Orioles' most valuable player Tuesday. It was Sarfate who took the ball after starter Alfredo Simon left the game with one out in the second inning because of right elbow discomfort. Sarfate logged 3 1/3 scoreless innings at a time when the Orioles needed not only an extended effort, but a quality one. STREAK STOPPED Entering the game, opposing teams were 11-for-11 on steal attempts against the Orioles.

So much for all that available space on the 40-man roster. The Orioles had their reasons for outrighting all those players after the season. They wanted to purchase the contracts of pitchers Bob McCrory and Fredy Deza from Double-A Bowie and activate Erik Bedard, Kris Benson, Jay Gibbons, Adam Loewen and Chris Ray from the 60-day disabled list. Now they're at 40 again. Kris Benson? Is he still in the organization? McCrory has a real chance to accompany the Orioles north when camp breaks in spring, though the smart money has him beginning the year at Triple-A Norfolk.

TORONTO -- Orioles reliever Danys Baez will get a second opinion after a magnetic resonance imaging taken Friday confirmed a partial tear in his right elbow, an injury that ends his disappointing 2007 season and could force him to miss parts if not all of next season. Baez, whose season will end with an 0-6 record, a 6.44 ERA and three saves in 53 games, will decide shortly whether he'll try to rehabilitate the injury and be ready for spring training or have the surgery done and be out for an extended period.

Just when I was about to become a Washington Wizards fan, coach Eddie Jordan made up with Gilbert Arenas and the team held a players-only meeting to clear the air and now everything supposedly is ducky again. How boring is that? The last thing I want in my favorite NBA team is locker room harmony. Give me Kobe vs. Shaq, The Answer and Larry Brown or - if you want to get Wizzy with it - another spontaneous heavyweight boxing match between Etan Thomas and Brendan Haywood. When Arenas scored only nine points against the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday and blamed it on the coaching staff, I was sure he had gotten his diploma from the Terrell Owens School of Media Relations and we were in for the regular-season ride of our lives.

Just two days before pitchers and catchers report to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for the start of spring training, the Orioles are facing the reality that they will likely be without one of their most reliable starters for much if not all of the season. Kris Benson, expected to be the veteran anchor of a young Orioles rotation and either its No. 2 or No. 3 starter, will likely have surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, his agent Gregg Clifton confirmed yesterday.

His early childhood years were spent in a small, lake-shore city in Wisconsin, a peaceful place that reminds Kris Benson of a landscape painting. He then moved on to the Deep South, where a diverse environment shaped the youngster's easygoing demeanor. Benson's professional life took him to blue-collar Pittsburgh, the bright lights of New York and now Baltimore, where his new digs offer him a great view of the Inner Harbor and a short drive to Camden Yards.

NEW YORK -- Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo had been contemplating granting Rodrigo Lopez another start before the season was over to give the pitcher a shot at his 10th win. Call it a reward for Lopez's toughness during the most trying season of his career. Perlozzo did the next closest thing last night at Yankee Stadium, inserting Lopez into a tie game after a back injury forced starter Hayden Penn off the mound.
