NEW YORK -- Mark Langston, whom the Yankees tried to lure to New York four years ago when he was a free agent, would consider accepting a trade to the Yankees if the circumstances were right, a close friend of the 33-year-old left-hander said yesterday.The friend, who requested anonymity, said Langston's first preference would be to remain with the California Angels beyond next year, the last of the five-year, $16 million contract he signed in 1989.

Quote: "Seven runs with no extra-base hits, that's odd. But I've never seen us score seven runs in an inning with extra-base hits." -- Phillies manager Terry Francona.It's a fact: Last night the Marlins retired uniform No. 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson. They didn't retire the number last season, the 50th anniversary of Robinson's breaking the color barrier, because Dennis Cook wore it.Who's hot: The Astros lead the NL with 32 steals, while their opponents have been successful twice in eight attempts.

Maybe the Orioles' luck really has changed after all.In the wake of a desultory 2-4 homestand, the Orioles hit the road for 12 of their next 18 games. They open a four-game series in Anaheim against the California Angels tonight (10:35, ESPN), and the encouraging news is that they won't have to face Chuck Finley, who has a 4-1 career record against Baltimore. The Angels' lefthander pitched -- and suffered his first loss -- against Cleveland on Wednesday. Finley is 4-1 this season.That means the Orioles will try to get untracked against the likes of Kirk McCaskill (2-2, 2.84 earned run average)

California AngelsWhere they're coming from: Few people will remember that the Angels bettered their 1994 record by 32 games or that they won the last five games on their regular-season schedule. California's legacy is this: It led the Mariners by 12 1/2 games on Aug. 20, yet didn't win the West. The Angels lost a one-game playoff and finished at 78-67.Where they're going: They might not be in first place for 125 games again, but they'll end up there.Key newcomers: Second baseman Randy Velarde, rookie third baseman George Arias and starting pitchers Steve Ontiveros (out with an elbow injury)

The Orioles are 6 1/2 games out of first place, the Atlanta Braves are 4 1/2 out. Rarely have two clubs in such similar positions offered a more dramatic contrast.The Braves, coming off a three-game sweep of NL West leader San Francisco, have won 14 of their last 16 games and 28 of their last 38.The Orioles wished they were as hot.Wished they were chasing only one team.Wished they were getting Dennis Martinez to join Greg Maddux, Steve Avery, John Smoltz and Tom Glavine in their starting rotation.

The Major League Players Association, if not the owners, has recognized the potential impact of losing top draft choices as a result of signing free agents.In an effort to encourage movement, the players insisted in the last labor negotiation that teams ranking in the lower half of the combined major-league standings now give up a second-round pick rather than a No. 1. Teams losing Type A free agents (many of whom are not impact players) also are compensated with a supplemental pick between the first two rounds.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jeff Robinson will bring his own new look to what the Orioles hope is a permanent new look for their starting rotation when he faces the Angels tonight (10:35, ESPN).After a disastrous outing against the A's in Oakland last Thursday, when he retired only one batter and allowed five earned runs, Robinson took out his frustrations on his personal appearance. He visited a barber the next day and had his locks shorn to the bare minimum."If you stay in this game long enough, it will drive you to do crazy things," said the 6-foot-6, 235-pound righthander, whose closely cropped mane he hopes won't be as visible as his fastball.

The 64th All-Star Game created the closest thing to a postseason atmosphere that Baltimore has experienced in nearly decade, which only made it more ironic that the American League starting lineup was dominated by Toronto Blue Jays.Second baseman Roberto Alomar didn't apologize for that, but he said yesterday that the Orioles have as good a chance as anyone -- including the Blue Jays -- of making it to baseball's postseason tournament this year."They've got a good team . . . good pitching," Alomar said.

Jimmy Key of the New York Yankees is the most logical -- and perhaps deserving -- choice to start Tuesday's All-Star Game for the American League. He pitched Friday night, has an 11-2 record, the league's best ERA (2.31), and is left-handed.But because Yankees manager Buck Showalter wants Key to pitch only one inning, he may not be the choice of AL manager Cito Gaston."All I can tell you is that a left-hander will be starting for us," said Gaston, who will announce his starter and batting order tomorrow.
