Before yesterday's 10-8 loss to the Kansas City Royals, Orioles reliever Rick Bauer hadn't pitched since April 20, and Bauer would be the first to say that that's a good thing. Bauer is the Orioles' long reliever, meaning he's most likely to pitch if an Orioles starter has a bad outing. Take yesterday for example. Starter Rodrigo Lopez couldn't regain his composure after a disastrous fourth inning in which Kansas City scored six runs. Bauer relieved Lopez, who allowed six hits and eight runs (six earned)

Despite their bullpen's success, the Orioles hadn't had a designated long man. Instead, their relievers had taken turns at multiple-inning stints. But now, the Orioles seem to finally have a long-relief candidate in left-hander Dana Eveland . Eveland's contract was purchased from Triple-ANorfolk last Friday so he could make a spot start against the Tampa Bay Rays, and he was subsequently sent to the bullpen. In Wednesday's 15-inning, 4-3 win over the Kansas Royals at Kauffman Stadium, Eveland threw three scoreless innings, giving the Orioles their longest relief outing of the season.

Shaky start Making his second spring appearance, Orioles left-hander Brian Burres failed to get through the third inning and was replaced by reliever Fredy Deza. Burres allowed two runs, both in the third inning, and five hits. He also committed a balk that allowed the tying run to score. Burres gave up a run and four hits in two innings in his debut Monday in Vero Beach. Orioles manager Dave Trembley has indicated Burres should make the club as the fifth starter or a long reliever, based on what he accomplished last season.

Sometimes you just have to wonder when, or if, baseball's statistical craze will end. Or, at the very least, hope that the Figure Filberts of the world find a merciful way to put the rest of us out of our misery.Trying to read some of the newfangled "everything you don't need to know and therefore didn't ask for" box scores is enough to provide indigestion at the breakfast table. They seem to provide everything but body temperatures and horoscopes and are about as easy to read as the assembly directions on those "do it yourself" kits.

CHICAGO -- Manager Mike Hargrove and pitching coach Sammy Ellis viewed Sunday night's 11-inning, 3-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics as a necessary evil. While blowing a 2-1 lead in the ninth inning rarely implies anything positive, Hargrove and Ellis emphasized that the game was an example of how long-term interest sometimes trumps short-term gain during a season. After Mike Trombley gave up the game-tying home run to light-hitting catcher Ramon Hernandez, Hargrove turned to long reliever Tim Worrell to pitch the 10th and 11th innings rather than risk burning up closer Mike Timlin or left-handed setup man Buddy Groom, both of whom had appeared in three straight games.

Short a starter, Orioles manager Johnny Oates turned to his long reliever for help yesterday.Oates asked Mark Williamson yesterday if he would be rested enough to start today's game, received an affirmative response, and with that, Williamson was scheduled to make his first start since last May 15 at Detroit. He allowed three runs and lasted 3 2/3 innings that day against the Tigers."It'll be fun," Williamson said. "I'll approach it just like I do relieving. I'll go out and warm up just like I'm coming into a ballgame as a long reliever."

Rodrigo Lopez looked forward to putting his disappointing 2006 season behind him and proving again that he could be a reliable starting pitcher. He'll get that opportunity, but not as an Oriole. Content with their pitching depth and not interested in paying a significant salary to a long reliever, the Orioles yesterday traded Lopez, their Opening Day starter for three of the past five seasons, to the Colorado Rockies for two minor league pitchers. In return for Lopez, who went 60-58 with a 4.72 ERA in five seasons with the club, the Orioles acquired right-handed relievers Jim Miller and Jason Burch.

66 Paul Kilgus P* HENNEMAN'S VIEW: Used primarily as a starter in the past, he would have to make team as a long reliever or late-inning left-handed setup man. Does not throw hard, but has a good curve that makes his fastball deceptive. He's had his moments with three major-league teams, but like many others hasn't been able to establish a consistent pattern.24 Dwight Evans OF/DH* HENNEMAN'S VIEW: The biggest question is whether his back and legs can withstand the grind of returning to the outfield.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Judging by how the Orioles have set part of their rotation, Rick Helling and Pat Hentgen no longer are competing for the fifth spot. Sidney Ponson has been told that he will start the April 4 series opener against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards, the fourth game of the 2003 season. And Jason Johnson confirmed that he'll make the next day's start. So far, manager Mike Hargrove has confirmed only that Rodrigo Lopez, a 15-game winner last year, will pitch on Opening Day against the Cleveland Indians.

It's not quite the same as knowing where you were when, say, your first child was born, but every big leaguer knows where he was when he got the call to come up from the minors.Alan Mills was sitting with his Rochester Red Wings teammates last Friday, checking out an American Hockey League game at War Memorial Auditorium between the hometown Americans and the Hershey Bears, when he got word that he was heading up from Triple-A."It's kind of funny that they found me at a hockey game," the soft-spoken Mills said last night, following the Orioles' 12-4 pasting of the Detroit Tigers at Oriole Park.
