OK, so, without a collective bargaining agreement between the players and the owners, no one really knows what the baseball free-agent rules are, but that won't matter since the Orioles' most valuable free agent isn't bound by a CBA anyway.Mark McLemore and Mike Devereaux may draw the biggest headlines, but the Orioles' negotiations with announcer Jon Miller will be of no small importance either.Miller, widely regarded as one of baseball's best play-by-play men, is up for grabs, as his one-year pact with the Orioles expired with the end of his 12th season with the club.

The TV Repairman:A decade ago, when the Breeders' Cup sprang out of the fertile mind of someone, two guys named Tom, Hammond and Durkin, host and race caller, respectively, for NBC's coverage, gasped in unison, "We're on for four hours, how are we going to fill that much time?"The network went in with lots of features, which, according to Hammond, "we never got to. Right off we thought, hey, we don't have enough time." So the 11th edition tomorrow will be four hours, 30 minutes in length, from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m."

LILLEHAMMER, Norway -- Tonya Harding has rights.The right to an attorney.The right to a fair hearing.And the right to skate at the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway.But it is apparent that the U.S. Olympic Committee is setting the stage to toss her overboard between now and the Feb. 21 draw for the women's figure skating event.Yesterday, the U.S. Figure Skating Association found that there were "reasonable grounds" to believe Harding was involved in the knee-bashing of Nancy Kerrigan.

Let's face it: "Ice Wars: The U.S.A. vs. The World," the two-night made-for-television ice skating extravaganza, would be nothing more than the idle ruminations of a network executive if not for last winter's "Tonya Harding Free-For-All."For those of you hiding under rocks (and there weren't many, according to the Winter Olympics ratings), Nancy Kerrigan was nearly taken out of the run for the gold with a well-placed shot to her right knee at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.Harding and Kerrigan made the trip to Lillehammer, Norway, for the Olympics, and the first night of the women's competition drew the fourth-largest audience in television history and was the sixth-highest-rated telecast of all time.

The TV Repairman:Maybe it tells us something about golf coverage on TV, those 15-minute Masters wrap-up shows last night and tonight (11:35-11:50) ranking among the 10 highest-rated golf shows each year. Are the masses suggesting that three-, four- and five-hour shows weekend afternoons are just too much time to spend watching? Especially when networks have been known to go away from so many tournaments due to time constraints.CBS theorizes that the format of the late-night shows of reviewing the best shots of the day and talking to some of the leaders and signing off is the reason for the popularity.

TURIN, Italy -- The judges for the Winter Olympics women's figure skating competition got it right. What fun is that? Of course, there was hardly any way they could have gotten it wrong after yesterday's long program. Not even the French judge would have dared try to fix this one. Skaters have complained that the ice at the Palavela is soft, but that was a good thing in this case. Considering how many of them fell on it, someone could have been seriously injured. The winner: the only one standing.

NAGANO, Japan -- We're No. 2.It's not exactly the slogan you hear at the Winter Olympics. But that's what winning the silver medal is all about.You're not first. You're not third. You haven't won. But you haven't really lost, either. It is the toughest medal of all to deal with for many Olympians.And today, it's the medal that Michelle Kwan and Tara Lipinski would like to avoid.These two terrific, teen-aged figure skaters are out to claim the women's title at the Winter Olympics. In all likelihood, one of them is bound for the most valuable gold at the Olympics, while the other is headed for a silver.

As it will for most American households, today's holiday meal at the home of ABC college football analyst Bob Griese will be a chance for the family to give thanks for all the good things that have happened since this time last year.But the elder Griese, a Hall of Fame quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, claims to be a little less thankful for the conduct of his son Brian, a Michigan quarterback who came off the bench Saturday to lead the Wolverines to an upset road win over Ohio State.The Michigan victory spoiled the prospect of having two unbeaten teams, the Buckeyes and Arizona State, meet in the Rose Bowl, which -- surprise, surprise -- will be seen on ABC on New Year's Day."
