NEW YORK -- The "Mooooose" chant that Orioles fans showered down on their former ace for many successful seasons started just before 7:10 last night when Mike Mussina prepared to deliver his first pitch for the New York Yankees. About 30 minutes later, the chant was replaced by a steady chorus of boos as Mussina ducked into the dugout after one of the most difficult starts of his 18-year-career. Taking advantage of Derek Jeter's throwing error that prolonged the first inning, the Orioles scored seven times in the inning off Mussina, who recorded just two outs in a 12-2 Orioles rout that included a bench-clearing confrontation in the top of the sixth inning.

DENVER -- In one calendar year, reliever LaTroy Hawkins has gone from an Orioles club stuck in a losing spiral to being a contributor on a Colorado Rockies' World Series team. The move, he said, probably saved his career. "Losing does something to you, it makes you start thinking that it is time to hang it up," said Hawkins, 34. "But coming over here with young guys who are very energetic and want to learn and are very passionate about what they do, makes you look like, `Yeah, I like that.

The Orioles have swapped one irritable reliever for another. The only difference, besides one being right-handed and the other a southpaw, is Steve Kline's a great media guy and LaTroy Hawkins is a complete jerk. But if he gets hitters out, nobody outside of the press box will care. For that to happen, the Orioles must keep Hawkins in a setup role and not fool themselves into thinking he can close, even on rare occasions. He's like Arthur Rhodes, mentally unsuited for the pressure of a ninth-inning save situation.

Minneapolis -- It has been more than two years since Orioles reliever LaTroy Hawkins left Minnesota as a free agent, but the personalized license plates, the ones with "LHFC," are still on some cars in the Twin Cities. The LaTroy Hawkins Fan Club. Hawkins, who has one of the personalized plates with his old No. 32 on it, said there are about 800 members in the group. He said it started one day about six years ago when he was the only Twin to sign autographs after a game. It grew from there, and Friday, when Hawkins pitched again in the place where he spent the first nine seasons of his career, about 60 LHFC members were in attendance.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Relievers' row at Fort Lauderdale Stadium exploded with howls when LaTroy Hawkins made the statement. Left-handed pitcher Eric DuBose nearly fell off his stool while screaming, "Can I get an `Amen' from the back row? Hallelujah." Hawkins laughed at the reaction, but he hadn't been joking when he said he had no problem taking charge in the Orioles' revamped bullpen. "I'm a born leader, player," Hawkins said. "I'm a born leader." Hawkins, the 33-year-old right-hander whom the Orioles acquired from the San Francisco Giants in December for disgruntled lefty Steve Kline, gives the club a much-needed veteran to set up inexperienced closer Chris Ray. Entering his 12th major league season, Hawkins believes he can help guide a staff that - at least for now - includes just one pitcher (Kris Benson)

TORONTO -- When Daniel Cabrera was hammered for seven runs by Boston in his 2006 debut, it was Orioles reliever LaTroy Hawkins who took a seat next to the 24-year-old starter, and told him to forget about the outing. When reliever Eric DuBose was optioned to Double-A Bowie, it was Hawkins who sought out the pitcher and reminded him that he was still relatively young and there would be better days ahead. In his short time with the Orioles, Hawkins, who was acquired in a December trade with San Francisco for Steve Kline, has become one of the clubhouse leaders.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- With Rodrigo Lopez experiencing minor soreness in his pitching arm, the Orioles have decided to keep struggling rookie Hayden Penn in the rotation for at least one more start. Penn will start tomorrow's series finale against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo acknowledged that he went both ways on the decision before choosing to give Penn another opportunity. In three starts, Penn is 0-3 with a 27.00 ERA. A 21-year-old right-hander who is one of the organization's top pitching prospects, Penn has given up 24 hits and 22 earned runs in 7 1/3 innings.

Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo can't seem to get his rotation set for the final month of the season, no matter how hard he tries. Just when Perlozzo had settled on his five starters, he lost Kris Benson to a bout with strep throat. Benson was scratched last night and replaced by Rodrigo Lopez, who had been told Friday that he was going to the bullpen. "He had a sore throat a little bit [Sunday], but nothing severe," Perlozzo said. "He woke up this morning and wasn't feeling very good, so he went to the doctor.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The uncle of Orioles reliever LaTroy Hawkins called his nephew around midnight Saturday after he left his job at a steel mill and asked how that night's game against the Tampa Bay Devils Rays went. "`I'm not even going to tell you,' " Hawkins said he told his uncle. "I said, `When you get home, turn on ESPN and then call me back.' And he called me back about 2 a.m." This is how Hawkins summed up the Devil Rays' 13-12 victory, which was the first time in 73 years that two teams each scored nine runs or more in an inning in the same game.

For years, I have told the Orioles what to do. For just as many years, they have ignored my suggestions. It's time for another approach. Instead of telling them what they should do for the rest of what is shaping up as their ninth straight losing season, I'm going to try telling them what they shouldn't do. Reverse psychology works with kindergartners, right? When you tell them not to touch a hot stove, they usually burn themselves within minutes - but never do it again. Maybe if I couch my suggestions in terms of what not to do, I can trick the Orioles into doing things my way. Here are eight specific "don'ts" (one for each losing season in the current streak)
