The photo tells all. Arms raised in a triumphant "V," body flushed with joy, Orioles pitcher Mike Cuellar leaps off the mound at Memorial Stadium, having stuffed the Cincinnati Reds, 9-3 in the deciding game of the 1970 World Series. "I can still see the look on Mike's face," third baseman Brooks Robinson recalled Friday. "His mouth was wide open and he had a big, big smile." Miguel Angel Cuellar died Friday of stomach cancer at the Orlando (Fla.) Regional Medical Center.

Four years into his major league career, Jim Palmer had gone from being a 19-year-old phenom to a World Series hero who outpitched Sandy Koufax before his 21st birthday to a sore-armed 23-year old trying to figure out a suddenly clouded future. Sidelined after tearing his rotator cuff, Palmer took classes at Towson State. He earned his license to sell insurance. He even planned to stay active in baseball if he couldn't pitch again. "I thought I was going to become a coach," Palmer recalled.

Athletics@Orioles 7 p.m. [MASN2] Once upon a time, this series would be a playoff preview - 1971, 1973, 1974. Vida Blue vs. Jim Palmer. Catfish Hunter vs. Mike Cuellar. Ken Holtzman vs. Dave McNally. The funny uniforms and mustaches didn't mean those Oakland guys couldn't play ball. And now we have two teams sunk in double-digit deficits below .500. Maybe a mustache or two would help?

Two weeks ago, after registering his fourth win, Ben McDonald was having difficulty explaining his early success. He had just beaten the Seattle Mariners despite not being able to throw a decent curveball for a strike.McDonald shrugged his shoulders and with a puzzled look on his face said: "The frustrating thing is that I haven't had good stuff yet."He quickly corrected himself, realizing that four straight wins isn't frustrating.Frustration sets in when you have good stuff and lose, which happened often to McDonald a year ago, and undoubtedly will happen again sometime this season.

Relief pitcher Todd Frohwirth said he will appeal the $1,000 fine American League president Bobby Brown levied against him for throwing his cap and glove after he was ejected from a game on Aug. 19.Frohwirth, normally mild-mannered, raged after plate umpire Larry Barnett ejected him against the Seattle Mariners for arguing balls and strikes. He was so angry that he took off his cap and threw it on the field, then hurled his glove over the umpires, all the way to third base.There is an automatic $100 fine for throwing equipment, but the league president can increase the amount for flagrant violations.

Orioles pitching coach George Bamberger was on the mound one day in 1971 talking to a starter when shortstop Mark Belanger offered a suggestion."Make him hit the ball to me and I'll get us out of the inning," Belanger said.That was the year the Orioles became the second team in major-league baseball history to produce four 20-game winners. It was the year that Dave McNally (21-5), Pat Dobson (20-8), Mike Cuellar (20-9) and Jim Palmer (20-9) reached the mark, joining Red Faber (23-13), Lefty Williams (22-14)

The photo tells all. Arms raised in triumph, body flush with joy, Orioles pitcher Mike Cuellar leaps off the mound at Memorial Stadium, having stuffed the Cincinnati Reds, 9-3, in the deciding fifth game of the 1970 World Series. "I can still see the look on Mike's face," third baseman Brooks Robinson recalled Friday. "His mouth was wide open, and he had a big, big smile." Miguel Angel Cuellar died Friday of stomach cancer at Orlando Regional Medical Center in Florida. He was 72. Of his 185 major league victories, none meant more than that World Series win to Cuellar, the Cuban-born left-hander who revived his flagging career in Baltimore - as well as the Orioles' fortunes.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- One locker in the Orioles' spring training clubhouse looks like it should be encased in glass, if only to preserve this shrine to better days and better teams. A white jersey hangs from a hook with Mike Cuellar's last name stitched across the back. A sentimentalist will view it as the uniform top of an aging Orioles hero who could be the most important spring training invitee in Fort Lauderdale, while a cynic might regard it as a cruel reminder that Cuellar likely will be the only 20-game winner who changes clothes in that row. But no matter the perspective, he's a link to the organization's glorious past, and manager Dave Trembley wants to make sure the chain is unbroken.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out who's going to win the Cy Young Award in the American League. Pedro Martinez returned from a midsummer injury with plenty of time to embellish his impressive 1999 statistics. But it isn't quite so clear who is the most deserving pitcher in the National League.Arizona Diamondbacks ace Randy Johnson may be the hardest-working man in show business, leading the league in ERA, innings pitched, games started and complete games while making a run at the single-season strikeout record, but what do you do if Houston's Mike Hampton wins three or four more games and ends up with a 22-3 record?

Twenty years after the Orioles had a pitching staff with four 20-game winners, they have one that looks as if it won't produce a single 10-game winner.The 1971 Orioles included Dave McNally (21-5), Pat Dobson (20-8), Jim Palmer (20-9) and Mike Cuellar (20-9).On the current staff, Bob Milacki (6-5) is closest to reaching double figures.A telling indictment of the staff is that the man who pitched the opener, Jeff Ballard, was sent to the minors this week. The O's, in case you had forgotten, lost their opening game to Chicago, 9-1.The baseball fans in Baltimore have to be the most dedicated anywhere, supporting this year's poor team with a record turnout for 47 dates of 1,531,677.
