MIAMI -- The Cleveland Indians have been here before. They were two innings away from being eliminated from the Division Series. They were four outs away from falling two games behind the Orioles in the American League Championship Series. They always found a way.Now, with the wild-card Florida Marlins one victory away from an unlikely world title, the Indians face one more mountain or could it be that they have run out of happy endings?The odds are stacked heavily against them. They have to win two straight games on the road and they have to get by Marlins ace Kevin Brown just to force a decisive Game 7."

Sometime this week, the Orioles are expected to announce who will be the club's next general manager, the one to pursue Roberto Alomar or Craig Biggio or Ron Gant.Three candidates -- former New York Mets scouting director John Barr, ex-Montreal Expos GM Kevin Malone and former Detroit Tigers GM Joe Klein -- have emerged from a month's worth of interviews as the apparent front-runners.A quick look at what each has to offer, and overcome:* Barr, who interviewed for more than two hours Saturday with Orioles owner Peter Angelos and club counsel Russell Smouse, has a deep background in scouting.

ATLANTA BRAVESWhere they're coming from: They didn't dominate the NL last year, as everyone had presumed they would, and were in second place with a 68-46 record when the strike began.Where they're going: When Expos GM Kevin Malone traded CF Marquis Grissom to the Braves, he said he was basically dealing Atlanta a championship. He may be right.Key newcomers: Grissom (.288, 36 steals), 3B Chipper Jones (out last season with torn knee ligament).What must go right: The Braves do need to identify a closer once and for all, and they think they have one in young, hard-throwing Brad Clontz, who could save a ton of games behind starters Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, et al. The Braves must get offense from right-handed hitters Grissom, Jones and Blauser, because the lineup is overweighted with left-handed sluggers.

Atlanta general manager John Schuerholz just smiles a tight smile when asked whether he'll be able to keep the main `D elements of this Braves team together, and says, again, that's a question he will address after the season.But the financial reality of the matter is that the Braves will have a very hard time holding their core together. The Indians, on the other hand, are in a tremendous position to dominate the AL Central for years to come.Atlanta first baseman Fred McGriff, who made $4.25 million in 1995, is a free agent after this season, and it seems unlikely the Braves will keep him. He is 32, and, although he is the centerpiece of the Braves' offense, they have more pressing matters to address.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- The changes in Jason Johnson this spring have gone beyond the blond highlights, chin hair and No. 16. He's pitching with confidence, and showing every intention of beginning the season in the Orioles' starting rotation. If Opening Day were tomorrow, he'd most likely be there. Johnson gave manager Mike Hargrove more to consider yesterday with three shutout innings in the Orioles' 5-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. He allowed only one hit -- a leadoff single by Marquis Grissom -- and walked Gary Sheffield, both in the first inning.

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians finally got their comeuppance last night. They reached the 93rd World Series with the help of a run-scoring blown squeeze play and a two-run wild pitch. It was only a matter of time before the ball started bouncing the other way.It bounced all over the place under near-freezing conditions at Jacobs Field, and it didn't stop bouncing until the Florida Marlins had come from four runs down to score an ugly 14-11 victory.Actually, it didn't stop bouncing until a last-gasp Indians rally came to an end with the tying run on deck, but you get the idea.
