ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.  - Caleb Joseph now can concede that there were several times during those late-night bus rides through the Eastern League when he considered calling it quits on his lifelong dream of making it to the major leagues. Joseph felt stuck in Double-A, a minor league proving ground for some and a glass ceiling for others, watching younger teammates as he grew older. That is what made Joseph's promotion to the major leagues May 7 from Triple-A Norfolk so satisfying.

When did being host of a late-night talk show become brain surgery?First, the Chevy Chase debacle on Fox last week. And, now, Conan O'Brien's opening night Monday as David Letterman's replacement on NBC, which was almost as bad.Nervous and jittery to the point where it's painful to watch, he plied guests with questions that ran the gamut from "So, what's up?" to "So, how's it going?" Then he was too distracted by nerves and cues from his director to listen to the answers.Even considering opening-night jitters, O'Brien shows very little promise of ever being able to deliver a monologue or engage the audience in any kind of conversation.

Los Angeles -- When NBC picked unknown Conan O'Brien to replace David Letterman as host of its "Late Night" show, most people thought it made about as much sense as the San Francisco Giants asking the team's water boy to take over in center field after Willie Mays left.As it turns out, even Mr. O'Brien admits there are times when he asks himself, "What the hell have I done? Am I going to be able to do this?"Yet, starting tonight, the 30-year-old writer-turned-performer will be host of "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," following in the steps of a show-business legend who made the time slot a gold mine for NBC.The network took its lumps for putting so much faith in a young man whose only real performing work has been in the Los Angeles comedy ensemble known as The Groundlings.

America, it's time to request a mercy killing.The question America asked last September: Why Conan O'Brien?Now, five months and 102 shows later, the question is: Why Conan O'Brien?OK, you probably don't care. You're tired of the Talk Show Wars, and you don't stay up late anyway. Or, you don't stay up that late anymore.You might have watched the debut of "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" Sept. 13. It was awkward and amateurish. But, hey, Mr. O'Brien had been a writer-producer of "The Simpsons," the hippest series on network television, so you harbored some expectations.

It was Conan and the barbarians here last night.When Conan O'Brien, the unknown picked to replace David Letterman as NBC's late-night talk show host, walked into the Rainbow Room atop the Rockefeller Center for a news conference, a pack of about 30 photographers rushed forward, surrounded him and spent the next five minutes jostling, shooting and shouting "Conan, Conan, look this way. Conan, Conan, smile."Among them was renowned photographer Annie Leibowitz. That's the kind of attention the 30-year-old O'Brien has been getting since NBC announced last week that he would take over the late-night spot in August when Letterman leaves for CBS."

In the weight room at the Deerfield Run Community Center, 12-year-old Ashaki Gittens-Smith, wearing red gym shorts and a red tank top, is trying out the exercise machines with a friend: running on a treadmill for a couple of minutes, walking on an elliptical trainer, lifting a dumbbell or two. Down the hall in the gym, meanwhile, his two older brothers are playing a fast-paced game of basketball. Fourteen-year-old Adisa, his white T-shirt soaked with sweat, is darting around the court tirelessly, often with the ball; 16-year-old Ayinde, taller and wearing a sleeveless "Deerfield Run Mustangs" shirt, spends more time under the backboard.

After sending Steve Johnson to Triple-A on Saturday night so he could build up his innings in the Tides' rotation, the Orioles still had an open roster spot with Brian Roberts on the three-day paternity list. So they recalled infielder Danny Valencia from Norfolk and immediately inserted him into Sunday's lineup as the designated hitter. Valencia hadn't had a big league hit since June 16 and was in a 0-for-22 skid as an Oriole heading into Sunday. He grounded out in his first at-bat against the Seattle Mariners' Joe Saunders but snapped his hitless streak with a double in the fourth.

Jay Leno will step down as host of The Tonight Show in 2009, NBC announced yesterday, and turn over the most prestigious job in late-night television to Conan O'Brien, the goofy host of Late Night who has brought insult-spewing puppet dogs, among other innovations, to the small screen. O'Brien, who has been the host of the 12:35 a.m. Late Night show for 11 years, has been itching for an earlier time slot, and another network was likely to give it to him. NBC realized the only way to keep O'Brien, one of late night's most original talents, was to guarantee him the Tonight Show job. In April, Leno signed a five-year contract extension that will pay him more than $16 million a year and extend his run as host to 17 years.

For all the years that they did battle in the clubhouse or the sports pages or on the dais of some charity roast, Jim Palmer knew how Earl Weaver really felt about him. That's why he had to hold back tears Saturday when he related his favorite memory of the Earl of Baltimore - a memory made more poignant because it also involved his late teammate Mike Flanagan. It was way back, on one of those balmy spring training days in Miami, when the Orioles were always one of the best teams in baseball and Palmer was their pitching ace. Flanagan, still figuring things out in his early 20s, was sitting on the bench next to Weaver.
