BOSTON -- There is interest in Bobby Bonilla, and most of its seems to be coming from the National League West.Last week, the Orioles and San Francisco Giants were talking about a multi-player deal. With those talks apparently stalled, the Orioles are discussing a possible swap with the San Diego Padres.According to a league source, the Orioles and Padres have exchanged names. San Diego wants to add another big bopper like Bonilla, with right fielder Tony Gwynn possibly out for the rest of the year with an Achilles injury.

Anaheim, Calif. -- Mark Leiter stares hard at a photograph of his infant son and burns it all again into memory. The last day. The last hug. The last smile.It's all there in one seemingly ordinary baby picture, taped inside a locker at Anaheim Stadium like all the other family photos in all the other lockers in the California Angels' clubhouse."It's really hard," Leiter says quietly, still looking into those innocent eyes. "I really believed Ryan might make it to his first birthday."The ballgame is just 45 minutes away, but it's just a ballgame now. It's not life and death anymore, because the Leiter family -- Mark and Allison and their first son, Markie -- have become far more familiar with real life and real death than any young family should.

DETROIT -- This having been a season of constant changes, it is only fitting that Orioles manager John Oates has rearranged his pitching rotation one last time.This one, however, is not dictated by injuries, but by sentiment.Dave Johnson (4-7, 6.93) will pitch the final game of the series against the Tigers tonight (7:35, no TV), facing Mark Leiter (8-6, 4.22). Johnson will be pitching a day earlier than normal, a move made to allow him to start the next to last game of the season."Why not?"

With Jeff Robinson resting comfortably at home in San Diego, Mickey Tettleton already has combined with Cecil Fielder to form the most productive Detroit Tigers' home run duo in nearly 30 years.The Mick (28) and The Mountain (43) have combined for 71 homers, more than any two teammates in the majors this season. It's the highest total by a Tigers duo since Norm Cash (39) and Rocky Colavito (37) in 1962.Fielder is one of three American League players to start every game this season, along with Cal Ripken and Joe Carter.

It is Robinson's plan to have his three most effective starters ready for those games.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Mark Leiter can't forget the words on the doctor's report. They read:"Suggest maybe you find a new line of endeavor."This was in 1987. It was the second of three straight full seasons in which Leiter, then with the Baltimore organization, couldn't pitch because of shoulder trouble. He wasn't recovering well from his second shoulder operation of 1986."That was when I felt the worst," he said. "I was thinking about quitting baseball. It was very hard mentally. But my wife [Allison]

Forgive Sparky Anderson for thinking ghosts are hanging out at Camden Yards. By now, the manager of the Detroit Tigers can be excused for suspecting George Herman Ruth is running Bambino's Pub.Anderson is about to become the fifth winningest manager in baseball history -- but his team still hasn't won a game at Oriole Park. The Tigers' losing streak at Camden Yards reached 10 last night when the Orioles completed a three-game sweep with a 6-2 victory that moved them within five games of the division leaders.

When the Detroit Tigers arrived in Baltimore three days ago, manager Sparky Anderson was standing on the threshold of a significant milestone. He needed one more win to match Walter Alston for fifth place on baseball's all-time list.The odds were overwhelming that, before he left, Anderson would at least match his managerial idol. Instead, Anderson left in the early hours this morning the same way he arrived -- still searching for win No. 2,040.The Orioles completed the improbable last night, scoring early and late and thwarting threats in between, as they completed a three-game sweep of the Tigers with a 6-2 victory.

DETROIT -- Ever since the Detroit Tigers took over first place in the American League East April 23, people have been waiting for their collapse.After all, this is a club many picked to finish in last place. Those predictions were based on the team's poor pitching the past few seasons (4.60 ERA last year, worst in the majors) and again in spring training."One magazine said we were going to be as bad as Colorado and Florida," said manager Sparky Anderson.But during the first three months this season, the Tigers have made a dramatic turnaround, mostly because their pitching has exceeded anyone's wildest imaginations with a 3.99 ERA."

DETROIT -- It was 1986 that Mark Leiter went to spring training with the Orioles, but only a few remember."I didn't even know he had been in this organization," said manager John Oates. "But Junior [Cal Ripken Jr.] and Richie [trainer Richie Bancells] said he was in camp one year, but never threw -- all he did was shag and pick up balls."There was good reason Leiter didn't throw that spring. He was lame, and about to undergo three shoulder operations in a17-month period. He did not play for three years, 1986-88, and the Orioles finally gave up and released him.But Leiter had an ace in the hole.
