As the Major League Baseball playoffs carry on without them for a 14th straight fall, the Orioles are making moves to fill the void left in the front office by the departure of president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail. According to our Orioles ace Dan Connolly , Buck Showalter and Peter Angelos are meeting on Wednesday to narrow down their list of general manager candidates and will decide who will be conducting the interviews. Connolly floated several possibilities last week , including Scott Proefrock, J.P. Ricciardi and Tony LaCava.

Brady Anderson is carving a small block of time out of his packed training schedule to demonstrate the true purpose of the athletic life, which is not about money or women or fame or even fun. It's about beating you. The field of play - in this case - is a pingpong table in the middle of the Orioles' spring clubhouse at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex, where the team is preparing - with Anderson's help - for the 2012 baseball season. But it could just as well be a tennis court or a flag football field or the running track.

  The bar is open, but we are walking slowly and talking quietly in here today. I have a baseball winter meetings hangover. It's impossible to explain the event unless you have attended it -- or worse yet -- covered it. I literally didn't leave the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas from early Sunday evening to Thursday late afternoon; didn't ever step outside. But I feel like I walked a marathon per day, wearing out a path from the media room to the two lobbies and back in the gargantuan hotel.

The search for a new Orioles general manager will extend at least into the early part of next week, when owner Peter Angelos is expected to announce that either former Detroit Tigers GM Joe Klein or ex-Montreal Expos GM Kevin Malone will take over the day-to-day operation of the team.That announcement was expected today, but Orioles sources indicated the decision had been delayed -- perhaps while final contract terms are being negotiated.Player development director Syd Thrift represented the club at the general managers meetings in Arizona earlier this week, but he is not considered a candidate for the job. Angelos has beenvery deliberate in the selection process -- interviewing a long list of candidates before narrowing the field -- but he cannot afford to wait much longer to put someone in place.

The Orioles interviewed former New York Yankees general manager Gene Michael on Friday as a possible replacement for Roland Hemond as Orioles GM, and they will interview ex-Detroit Tigers GM Joe Klein today.Michael, 57, was the fourth GM candidate interviewed by the Orioles, following former San Diego Padres GM Randy Smith, who will take the Detroit GM job tomorrow; Kevin Malone, who resigned as Montreal Expos general manager the first week of October and appears to be a slight front-runner to replace Hemond; and Mike Port, the assistant general manager of the Boston Red Sox.Michael accepted a demotion last week to become the Yankees' director of major-league scouting, because he wouldn't accept a pay cut of $200,000 that Yankees owner George Steinbrenner insisted he take.

If there's any lesson in the exchange of criticisms between Orioles GM Frank Wren and manager Ray Miller that has made headlines, it's this:The general manager, and no one else, should be in charge of hiring and firing the manager.When you undermine that routine chain of command, as the Orioles have repeatedly, you end up with people on different pages.With different visions.Covering their rears.That's no way to build a winning foundation.And the Orioles' foundation is what's really wrong with them, more than any short-term problems involving the bullpen or a lack of speed.

While the Orioles — once again — go through the process of trying to redefine themselves by reconstructing their front office, this is probably as good a time as any to hope that the top candidate to be head of baseball operations turns his first meeting with owner Peter Angelos into a "Jerry Maguire" moment. Of course, no one who actually wants the job is going to leap out of his seat and shout, "Show me the money!" at the critical juncture in the interview process, but it would be nice if whoever gets the job also gets an assurance that no expense will be spared to build baseball's best scouting and player-development operation.

Three front-runners emerged in the Orioles' general manager search this weekend, and though one published report said the team is close to hiring former Chicago White Sox GM Ron Schueler, owner Peter Angelos said yesterday, "A decision has not been reached." Former Montreal Expos GM Jim Beattie and Orioles broadcaster Mike Flanagan remain in the running, club officials said yesterday. Though Angelos hasn't tipped his hand, speculation around the team indicates he is leaning toward hiring Schueler or Beattie to replace vice president of baseball operations Syd Thrift, with Flanagan assuming another top position within the front office.

IT'S NO EASY thing, retirement, not when you're a legend. What to do? Where to go? What itch to scratch and how hard? It's not exactly as if Cal Ripken is alone. When Michael Jordan (allegedly) retired from the NBA, he played golf, whipped up designer cologne and maybe taxied the kids to school once or twice. Maybe. But he didn't like any of that stuff, so Jordan is back - blazing a trail, off the bench, on creaky knees. Wayne Gretzky never promised his wife he'd make peanut butter sandwiches for their kids.

The Orioles have quietly put together a list of potential replacements for vice president of baseball operations Syd Thrift, and though former star Cal Ripken has expressed interest in the position, the club plans to look at several more-experienced candidates, high-ranking Orioles officials said yesterday. Orioles owner Peter Angelos still has not publicly addressed Thrift's status for next season, but there were indications yesterday that Angelos has done so privately. Angelos acknowledged Ripken's interest in the position and said former Orioles pitcher and current broadcaster Mike Flanagan is also a candidate.

CLEVELAND -- Davey Johnson said yesterday that his deal to become manager of the Orioles is "imminent," and guessed that former Montreal Expos general manager Kevin Malone will replace Roland Hemond as the team's GM.In an interview with the Cincinnati Post, Johnson said, "I think it's imminent, but you can never say for sure. I've talked to [Orioles owner Peter] Angelos . . . we have a good relationship."They're looking at a general manager, and they want to make sure the general manager likes me and stuff like that," said Johnson, who has been told he will not be retained as Cincinnati Reds manager next season.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles won an arbitration case but may have lost a catcher yesterday. A three-man panel ruled in the team's favor by assigning Charles Johnson a $4.6 million salary rather than his $5.1 million request for this season. Reached last night at his Plantation, Fla., home, Johnson restated that the ordeal tells him the 2000 season will be his last with the club. "My feelings really haven't changed: Winning or losing wasn't as meaningful as me having to go to arbitration in the first place.

And I think he feels the same way about our organization," Schuerholz said.
