FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -It was during another monotonous fielding drill last week when first baseman Aubrey Huff's attention was diverted to the left side of the infield. There, Cesar Izturis stood with his back to home plate, effortlessly fielding balls from third base coach Juan Samuel. "It was like he was getting so bored and it was so easy for him, he wanted to invent stuff out there so he started fielding balls behind him," Huff said. "It makes me jealous how somebody can be so good at fielding the baseball."

Quote: "A lot of us on the bench were calling the shot," said Omar Vizquel. "With one swing, he said to the fans,`I love you guys, too.' He let his bat do the talking." - Cleveland's Omar Vizquel on teammate Manny Ramirez's 452-foot home run in what could be his last at-bat as an Indian. The agent for Ramirez, who becomes a free agent in the off-season, rejected a five-year, $75 million offer from the team. It's a fact: Yesterday's crowd of 28,293 brought total attendance for Detroit's Comerica Park's first season to 2,533,752, second-best in Tigers history.

After having no shortstops on the 40-man roster as the offseason began and starting six players there in 2008, the Orioles headed into the winter with one of their most important missions clear: to fill the gaping hole in the middle of their infield. Yesterday, the Orioles officially accomplished that goal by announcing the signing of Cesar Izturis, an eight-year veteran and former Gold Glove Award winner who spent last season with the St. Louis Cardinals. Izturis, 28, signed a two-year deal for $5 million, which could increase to a total of $6.2 million based on incentives and awards.

CLEVELAND - Having done more tinkering than rebuilding during the winter months and six weeks of spring training, the Orioles figure to eventually see the benefits of their work this season, even if there wasn't much heavy lifting. The starters they brought in will win. The position players will begin to hit. The criticism from a disgruntled fan base will subside. Rick Helling kept last night's game close, which was enough to satisfy the Orioles, who rallied against the Cleveland Indians" bullpen and changed the tone of an entire series.

In need of speed? It's out there, if you know where to look. While stolen base stalwarts such as Juan Pierre and Carlos Beltran stumble out of the gate, plenty of others are getting it done on the basepaths, including a couple of fresh faces in Houston. Outfielders Willy Taveras and Jason Lane have swiped four bags apiece for the Astros, who had an NL-best 15 steals as a team through Tuesday. Taveras isn't a huge surprise - he had 55 steals in Double-A last season - but Lane is a power prospect who had only two steals in 169 major league games before the 2005 season.

Orioles shortstop Mike Bordick rose from the ground during Monday's game concerned about his head. He found out later that a more serious problem existed in his right leg, which will force him onto the disabled list for the second time in two seasons. A magnetic resonance imaging test and further examination yesterday revealed a hairline fracture in his kneecap. Bordick's leg will be immobilized for three weeks before the club re-evaluates the injury. Bordick slid into Seattle Mariners shortstop Carlos Guillen after being picked off first base in the sixth inning of Monday's 6-5 victory.
