Few athletes live with more insecurities than pitchers. Underhand, not overhand, is the natural way to throw a ball. Look at a picture of Roger Clemens or someone else throwing a fastball, and you will see an arm doing something it wasn't designed to do. It's natural that injuries result from throwing thousands of pitches every year at maximum effort. But injuries aren't the only problems for pitchers. Another reason for concern is that sometimes the ability to throw the ball really hard just vanishes, sometimes without a discernible reason.

To a conservative-minded fan, it might seem crazy for the Orioles to trade a gifted pitcher, Erik Bedard, who seemingly is entering his prime. But the Orioles were guaranteed only two years of Bedard, 28, and seem unlikely to contend for the playoffs in either season. To keep him longer, they probably would have had to offer a five-year extension worth $90 million or more. Very few pitchers, even excellent ones, prove to be sound investments over such a long period. For proof, simply look at the top 10 ERA leaders from 2002.

On the Orioles' free-agent targets Mark Mulder should be the Orioles' No. 1 signing this offseason. ... If the Orioles can sign a starting pitcher immediately in the offseason, their chances of making a trade for a hitter increase. If we take the big names out, then I would like [the] suggestion of Luis Gonzalez in left field for a year. Oakland and St. Louis have already expressed interest in Mulder, so scratch him off the list. Look for Gil Meche or Vicente Padilla.

I TAKE IT all back. The Orioles obviously know what they're doing. They haven't spent a dime on a marquee free agent or traded for a significant player and their chances of winning the American League wild-card race seem to get better every day. The Oakland A's just ceased to be a playoff contender in 2005, unloading two of the best pitchers in baseball (Tim Hudson and Mark Mulder) for a busload full of top prospects that will need a year or two to confirm that Billy Beane really is the smartest GM in baseball.

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. - No matter how much talk surfaces about the Orioles' desire to further upgrade their lineup this winter, they remain committed to finding two starting pitchers for the top of their rotation. One could be obtained via free agency - they've already had preliminary discussions with Carl Pavano's agent, Scott Shapiro - the other through a trade. Whatever routes they take, the Orioles want to lower Sidney Ponson from the top slot, perhaps down to fourth, with the belief that he'll return to 2003 form if given more favorable matchups.
