Mike Devereaux and Chris Hoiles underwent successful surgery yesterday, and both are expected to be ready for the start of spring training in February, Orioles vice president and general manager Roland Hemond said.Both players had surgery at Children's Hospital. Dr. Charles Silberstein stabilized the ulna bone fragment in Hoiles' right wrist. The wrist was fractured June 21, when Hoiles was hit by a pitch from Tim Leary of the New York Yankees. Hoiles' wrist will be in a cast for six weeks, and he will then begin an extensive rehabilitation program.

Cal Ripken not worth itWow! $30.5 million plus -- how many soup kitchens and how much housing that could provide for the needy and the homeless. It is a disgrace one person be granted this enormous salary when there are so many people losing jobs who probably have been in their positions 10 years or more and had great performance records.Cal Ripken did say that he would have remained an Oriole no matter what happened. That was the laugh of the day. He was going for the big money, and having his father within the organization for many years certainly was a plus for him. Any other player with a slump as Ripken has experienced would have been traded long ago.We have several valuable players on the team.

If past performance is any indication, the Orioles can't count on much production from the top of their lineup when they face the California Angels tonight.John Dopson (1-2, 6.00) doesn't have dominating numbers against the Orioles (0-1 last year, 2-2 lifetime). But the hitters who have been occupying the first three places in the lineup are hitting a collective .148 (9-for-61) with one home run and three RBIs against the Angels' right-hander.Of the Orioles' hitters, Dopson has been most successful against Brady Anderson (1-for-15, .067)

On the field: Orioles hitters compiled some major numbers, even in defeat. They had 17 hits, a season high. Brady Anderson matched a career high with four hits, as did left fielder Mike Devereaux (who improved his average from .214 to .368). Roberto Alomar had two hits, Bobby Bonilla had a hit and an RBI, Chris Hoiles had two singles in five at-bats, his first two-hit game of the year. But the Orioles went 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position and left 13 runners on base.In the dugout: Boston's Kevin Kennedy, trying to end a seven-game losing streak, managed as if it were the World Series.
