SAN DIEGO -- The All-Star Game means different things to different people, especially the three very different people who will represent the Orioles tonight in the 63rd All-Star Game at Jack Murphy Stadium.To Mike Mussina, who earned a spot on the All-Star pitching staff in his first full major-league season, it is a coming of age.To Brady Anderson, who also will be making his first All-Star appearance, it is homecoming.To Cal Ripken, who will play in the All-Star Game for the 10th straight year, it is another jewel in the crown.

Rotation's new look puts Smith back in RochesterARLINGTON, Texas -- Right-hander Roy Smith became the latest victim of the Baltimore Orioles' youth-oriented make-over, even though he was outrighted to the Class AAA Rochester Red Wings to make room for veteran first baseman Glenn Davis.Smith, who owns the only winning record (5-4) among the nine pitchers who have started for the Orioles this year, was dropped from the rotation last week when the Orioles recalled Jose Mesa from the Red Wings roster.

The Orioles didn't simply clean house yesterday. No, no, they fumigated the place. And, in doing so, they made a statement. Actually, it was more like an apology, which might go something like this: We, the Orioles, sincerely apologize for the sorry excuse of a pitching staff we've put together for your viewing entertainment.Certainly, the Orioles had plenty to say. In sending down Jeff Robinson, they said the Mickey Tettleton trade was a disaster. In sending down Jeff Ballard, they said you can't pitch from memory.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Baltimore Orioles are not likely to make the final roster cuts of the spring until Sunday, but the makeup of the 25-player Opening Day roster shouldn't be hard to figure out.Manager Frank Robinson has indicated that he will start the season with a nine-man pitching staff, which leaves room for 16 position players and gives him maximum roster flexibility at the time he needs it most.There are 29 players left on the major-league traveling squad, and two of them -- pitchers Roy Smith and Paul Kilgus -- are almost certain to open the season with the Class AAA Rochester Red Wings.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The Baltimore Orioles announced yesterday that they signed 39-year-old left-hander Mike Flanagan a one-year contract, but that did not come as good news to the veteran reliever he pushed off the roster.Kevin Hickey also was called to general manager Roland Hemond's hotel room, but it was to sign a waiver form. The Orioles waived him for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release on the last day before the club would have had to guarantee his entire 1991 salary.

OK, whaddya say we jump to the chase, pick the Orioles third and go from there?Third place seems about right.Third seems like a nice, cushy, comfortable -- yes, and gutless -- kind of pick. It's the kind of pick where if the Orioles finish first, you can always say you knew they had a chance. And if they finish last, you can say you knew they weren't really much good -- but were just being kind.Fourth is right in the middle, making it the safest pick, but third has the right ring of optimism to it when it's 80 degrees outside and it's Opening Day.You want optimism?

ARLINGTON, Texas -- It was perfect Dave Johnson weather The wind was blowing in from all fields. The ball was not going anywhere.Johnson didn't mind. He's getting used to this kind of thing. Pitch well and there's always some extenuating circumstance. Pitch poorly and you weren't that good to begin with.So it was Friday night, when Johnson gave up four hits over 6 1/3 innings on the way to a 3-0 victory over the Texas Rangers at Arlington Stadium, but a wind-aided victory is still a victory -- the first by the Baltimore Orioles this year.
