Assistant general manager Frank Robinson returned to Baltimore yesterday after spending the weekend in San Diego watching the Padres. Robinson's West Coast visit rekindles speculation about the Orioles' possible interest in Fred McGriff.San Diego general manager Joe McIlvaine no longer is saying that McGriff is unavailable. He also acknowledged that Robinson was in San Diego, but didn't say he specifically was looking at McGriff.Robinson said his trip to San Diego was to keep in touch with the Padres.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Reports continue to filter from the West Coast that Fred McGriff will be traded to the highest bidder before the month is over. And if the Orioles are willing to part with left-hander Arthur Rhodes, they probably could put together an acceptable package for the San Diego Padres first baseman."

Good thing Fred McGriff didn't make the All-Star team. He probably would have hit the warehouse in his first swing at Camden Yards, knocking on Roland Hemond's window, if not quite his door.Hemond would have jumped for the phone. The radio talk shows would have gone into a frenzy. And a trade that should never happen would have become that much closer to reality.It's easy to get excited about McGriff, especially now that Atlanta general manager John Schuerholz says he has broken off talks with San Diego.

ATLANTA -- They call Fred McGriff the "Crime Dog."After acquiring McGriff from the San Diego Padres Sunday without parting with any major leaguers or top minor-league talent, Atlanta Braves general manager John Schuerholz may be deserving of his own label of larceny.The Braves sent three minor-league players to the Padres: Triple-A Richmond outfielder Melvin Nieves and pitcher Donnie Elliott and Single-A Durham outfielder Vince Moore. Schuerholz said the Braves also received an unspecified amount of money in the deal.

NEW YORK -- Typical Fred McGriff. He drove in all the runs that mattered in the second game of the World Series and set a record for the most RBIs in a single postseason, and he still found a way to fade into the background.Big. Quiet. Dangerous.McGriff drove in the first three runs in the Braves' 4-0 victory, methodically defusing what otherwise would have been a tense pitching duel, while right-hander Greg Maddux was grabbing all the big headlines.No problem. McGriff is one of the most productive hitters in the game, but the one thing he is not is a self-promoter.

&TC ATLANTA -- Fred McGriff's bat had been surprisingly silent during the first three games of the postseason. Three hits in 13 at-bats against the Colorado Rockies, all measly singles, only one RBI.Not that it had hurt the Atlanta Braves in their quest for a fourth straight trip to the National League Championship Series. But the Rockies should have been happy to let this sleeping Crime Dog lie.McGriff, a solid but not spectacular hitter in the first two games, emerged from his personal funk last night.

A convicted drug lord at the center of a high-profile probe of the rap music industry in New York and the investigation of a double homicide in Owings Mills was sentenced yesterday to 37 months in prison on a federal gun charge. Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, who has been linked by authorities to other violence -- such as the well-publicized shooting of rap star 50 Cent -- was sentenced by U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz in Baltimore for illegally possessing a handgun as a convicted felon when he took target practice at a Glen Burnie firing range.

A convicted crack cocaine kingpin at the center of a federal probe of the New York record label Murder Inc. also is under investigation in a drug-related double homicide outside an Owings Mills apartment complex two years ago, newly filed court records show. Records filed by prosecutors in a federal gun case against Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff say that he is the "subject of a large-scale federal investigation in the Eastern District of New York and elsewhere centering on his involvement in multiple homicides, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, witness intimidation, firearm offenses and other federal violations."

Cash from Baltimore's drug trade helped bankroll a rising New York record label that is now at the center of a federal money-laundering investigation and a heated war of words between some of rap's biggest stars, newly filed court records allege. The probe by authorities in New York casts the well-worn drug path to Baltimore as a trade route that provided start-up funds for music company Murder Inc. and portrays the label behind the careers of performers Ashanti and Ja Rule as secretly run by a convicted drug lord currently jailed in Maryland on a federal gun crime.

After suffering a stroke in 1993, Carletha McGriff attempted to walk but would fall every couple of steps. "The message from the brain wasn't going down the spinal column," said McGriff, 45. A growth on her spinal column caused the stroke, resulting in paralysis and her using a wheelchair. She worked through rehabilitation while living in North Carolina, having to adapt to being the patient after once being a nurse's aide. After moving to Maryland in 1997, she took computer courses at Howard Community College and last year was hired as a special events coordinator for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Orioles pitcher Jose Mercedes continues to be vulnerable to the big inning, often getting it out of the way early. Why build the suspense? He's got enough drama unfolding with his inability to secure a win. The wait continued last night when Mercedes lost control of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for a brief moment, just long enough for Fred McGriff to hit an opposite-field homer with two outs in the eighth for a 4-3 victory over the Orioles before 11,078 at Tropicana Field.
