During the past two years, John Lowenstein has been seen all over the western United States and Canada. From cigar festivals in Arizona to Alaskan cruises to trips through British Columbia, the iconoclastic former Orioles outfielder-turned television analyst has been in more places than Waldo.Where he hasn't been, since the end of the 1996 season, is the Orioles' broadcast booth, and from just outside the hot tub at his Las Vegas home yesterday, Lowenstein said he's tanned, rested and ready to get back to calling the action.

SOFTBALL Player of the Year Nicole Lowenstein John Carroll The senior catcher was one of the most feared hitters in the metro area, hitting .472 with 20 runs and eight RBIs to lead the Patriots to an 11-8 season in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. Perhaps most telling of the respect she earned from opposing teams was the 32 times she was walked this season, many intentionally. A four-year starter and captain, Lowenstein was sturdy behind the plate and also provided leadership to the Patriots' inexperienced pitchers.

Whatever yesterday's Orioles home opener telecast lacked in excitement and suspense, it more than made up for in hilarity, thanks to everybody's favorite wacky, iconoclastic analyst, John Lowenstein.Listening to Lowenstein work a broadcast is the television equivalent of watching Dennis Rodman play basketball in that both are totally unpredictable, which can be good or bad.Lowenstein, in his 11th season as an Orioles analyst, was a font of twisted syntax, malaprops and just flat-out daffiness yesterday on Channel 13 during the Orioles' 7-0 loss to Milwaukee.

The Jan. 2 phone call from Home Team Sports general manager Jody Shapiro to John Lowenstein, informing the former Orioles outfielder that his services as an analyst on the channel's baseball telecasts would no longer be desired, caught him like a fastball to the noggin, and he still hasn't recovered from the blow."

The first thing to know about this year's baseball Hall of Fame ballot is that Pete Rose isn't on it (don't get excited; he's not eligible until next year) and that John Lowenstein is.Lowenstein, a 16-year veteran, is a long shot, of course, to be elected to Cooperstown, although he can visit any time he wants. Still, the former Oriole has two very important legs up on Rose:* He has never cheated on his taxes (at least, he's never been caught).* And he's not in prison.That may not be enough.

If you've paid any attention to the Sunday letters section of this newspaper, you've undoubtedly noticed that the absence of John Lowenstein from Home Team Sports and O's TV telecasts this season has been noted and lamented by a variety of readers.To be certain, the iconoclastic Lowenstein brought a spirit of wackiness and a sense of mirth that the too-rigid game of baseball can use, and his presence has been missed.But that's not to say that the man who has replaced him, former Orioles pitcher and pitching coach Mike Flanagan, hasn't been a joy to listen to, because he has.Flanagan was brought in by HTS officials, presumably because of his more immediate connection to the game than Lowenstein's, yet the best thing the 1979 Cy Young Award winner brings to the booth is a old-fashioned attention to detail and a willingness to teach the game to his audience.

An open letter to Comcast chairman Brian Roberts: Dear Mr. Roberts, Congratulations on buying Home Team Sports the other day. In case you didn't already know it, you picked up a pretty decent television property, and in this day and age, when people like sludge peddler, er, wrestling chief Vince McMahon, are pushing into the mainstream, there's something to be said for respectable. The thing is, not so long ago, HTS used to be more than pretty decent. It was something special, the envy of regional sports channels nationwide (and that includes those puffed-up New York stations like Madison Square Garden and Fox Sports New York)
