When?"Next year, or maybe next week," the Orioles' ace said, looking at the bloody wart on the index finger of his pitching hand.He was just kidding about retiring, of course."I've got to laugh about this," he said, "because it's so damn frustrating."No, the wart won't really hasten the end of his career.But it could send him to the disabled list and force him to miss a couple of starts, which isn't good news for the Orioles.
