Still looking to add an impact bat to the middle of their lineup, the Orioles made a contract offer yesterday to Aubrey Huff, one of the most accomplished players left on the free- agent market. Exact details of the contract offer are unknown, but one industry source said the Orioles proposed a three-year deal to Huff, worth in the neighborhood of $6 million per season. Huff's asking price has gone down significantly since the opening of free agency. One baseball executive, whose team has talked to Huff's representatives, said the 30-year-old, who can play first and third base and the corner outfield spots, was seeking a three-year deal worth around $7.5 million per season.

CLEVELAND -- The Detroit Tigers are expected to offer Randy Smith a job as general manager tomorrow or Wednesday, which could accelerate the Orioles' decision on whether -- or when -- to reassign or fire GM Roland Hemond.Smith interviewed with the Orioles on Tuesday, and appears to be the club's top choice in the event that Hemond is not retained as GM. But Smith, 32, could have two offers in hand by tomorrow night. The Montreal Gazette reported that the Expos were expected to forward an offer to Smith by the end of the weekend, to fill the job vacated by Kevin Malone two weeks ago.An Expos source indicated that the team will want an answer quickly.

Jack Morris will meet with the Blue Jays today, giving Toronto the first chance to sign the Most Valuable Player of the World Series."I think it's really down to Toronto and Boston, both of which are acceptable alternatives, even though it's not his first choice," Morris' agent, Richard Moss, said late Monday from his home in Los Angeles.Morris, the highest-paid pitcher of 1991 at $3.7 million, declined to exercise his $3.65 million option with the Minnesota Twins, his hometown team. That move came a day after the seventh game of the World Series, when he pitched 10 shutout innings in Minnesota's 1-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves.

Is it wise to make an offer in competition?Buyers often shy away from making an offer on a property if there are rival offers from other buyers. Understandably, you'd rather buy without competition. But you shouldn't rule out a house just because there's healthy interest in the property. A house that's in demand will probably be a good investment.The first thing to do when you decide you want to make an offer to purchase a property is to let the seller or seller's agent know. Ask to be kept informed if any other offers are being made.

The Cincinnati Reds traded outfielder Eric Davis to the Los Angeles Dodgers last night as part of a four-player deal that sent right-hander Tim Belcher to the Reds.Cincinnati also got reliever John Wetteland and sent reliever Kip Gross to the Dodgers.Davis, 29, played in only 89 games last season, hitting .235 with 11 home runs and 33 RBI.He has been hampered by injuries throughout his career. He fell out of favor with Reds manager Lou Piniella when he decided to sit out most of the second half of the season because of what Davis called chronic fatigue resulting from his kidney injury in the 1990 World Series.

Bethlehem Steel Corp. could get an offer for all or part of its assets as early as tomorrow, but any offer would allow for only a "relatively modest" recovery for many of the bankrupt company's creditors, a potential buyer said. "The probabilities are that we'll make a bid," said Wilbur L. Ross Jr., head of W.L. Ross & Co., a New York investment firm, and chairman of Cleveland-based International Steel Group Inc. "Everyday we get a little further along ... and we haven't found a total showstopper" that would dash an offer.

Mario Puzo, godfather of the Godfathers, died yesterday at home in Bay Shore, Long Island. His 78-year-old heart failed, those close to him said.You might say it was business: He had suffered a near-fatal heart attack in 1991 in Las Vegas, a city he loved for its gaming and its richer associated cultures. Quadruple-bypass surgery then sent him back to the keyboard. He soon began work on "The Last Don" (1996) his eighth novel. Shortly before he died, his agent and editors said, he completed a ninth, "Omerta," scheduled for publication in July 2000.

Making an offer on a house and negotiating price and terms can be alternately demoralizing and exhilarating for buyers -- demoralizing when the seller laughs at your carefully crafted offer, exhilarating when you call their bluff and they sign the sales contract.A good real estate agent or attorney who can keep you calm during the process is indispensable.ZTC Negotiating a sale usually follows a pattern. You make an offer and put up earnest money to show you are serious. The seller makes a counter offer.

Quarterback Mark Rypien, who said he feels "slapped in the face" by the Washington Redskins over his stalled contract negotiations, appears to be getting something of a cold shoulder in Canada.Even though Rypien attended the Toronto Argonauts' home opener at SkyDome on Thursday night and was cheered when he was introduced to the crowd of more than 36,000, general manager Mike McCarthy said yesterday that the team hasn't decided whether to make a formal offer to Rypien. He said a decision is likely in a week.
