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."

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.

Hollywood -- While most people consider the Daytime Emmys a bubble fest, soaps and their glamorous stars aren't the only prize winners in the show.In fact, in this year's 22nd annual awards celebration, airing tonight on NBC, daytime programs other than soap operas lead the total nomination tally, 179 to 79.Ironically enough, some of the nominations in the "non-soap" categories of talk, game/audience participation, service, children's, animation and special-class...

WHENEVER I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, then I account it high time to consult People magazine as soon as I can, for I recognize the symptoms all too clearly. Elitism has cast its pall upon me.The mail confirms it. "Elitist!" growls the displeased reader, proud of being that celebrity-besotted corporate human, The Common Person, which is composed of The Common Man and The Common Woman.

LILLEHAMMER, Norway -- Understand this about Nancy Kerrigan's quest for an Olympic gold medal: The hard part hasn't even started.Nailing her short program, as she did the other night, was no easy feat, particularly considering the events of the past seven weeks. But it is a rare night when Kerrigan doesn't nail her short program. She would be Michael Jordan if all she had to do was skate short programs."This was her strength, her forte," said Paul Wylie, her practice partner for a decade, after Kerrigan's brilliant short program Wednesday night.
