When you think about baseball in the 1990s, names like Ken Griffey Jr. and Cal Ripken come to mind. Yet, there were so many classic, run of the mill, and mediocre ballplayers in that time as well. Here are some of the most average to grace professional ballfields during that time. General guidelines used are at least 10 years played several of which were spent as a starter, a career average below .265 and not so stellar power numbers - 15-20 home runs and 70 RBIs a season. Keep in mind, other factors, such as funny memories and the comedic value of a player's name, can weigh in as well.

Three prominent 2007 Orioles who were named as steroid users last year in a Los Angeles Times report on the infamous Jason Grimsley affidavit were never mentioned as using performance-enhancing drugs in that document, which was unsealed by federal prosecutors yesterday. Current Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts and outfielder Jay Gibbons were not included at all in Grimsley's sworn testimony and neither were New York Yankees pitchers Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte, who also were implicated in the Times report.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- He was drafted ahead of Will Clar and Barry Larkin, ahead of Barry Bonds and Rafael Palmeiro, ahead of Walt Weiss, Gregg Jefferies and Joey Cora.Those seven first-round picks from the 1985 amateur draft have combined for 12 Gold Gloves, 27 All-Star selections and four Most Valuable Player awards.B. J. Surhoff has not earned any of those honors.And yet, the longer the Orioles left fielder plays, the more he justifies his selection as the first overall pick in '85.Surhoff, 33, might not be as accomplished as some of the players chosen behind him, but he's a player's player, a coach's favorite, a manager's dream.

Danny Clyburn is either very levelheaded or the consummate company man.Passed over twice this season when the Orioles needed a minor-league fill-in, the 22-year-old Rochester Red Wings power hitter has chosen not to think about the apparent slights.Not even during a season in which he has done what he was asked -- hit for better average.His improvement (a .296 batting average through Thursday, along with 16 homers and 52 RBIs) made him the starting left fielder in the Triple-A All-Star Game, but Bowie outfielder Dave Dellucci and Red Wings teammate Aaron Ledesma have been called up to the Orioles instead of him."

Before Jimmy Key would confirm his status for tomorrow, he checked with manager Davey Johnson to "make sure we've got our stories straight."He came back smiling. Having thrown for 12 minutes earlier in the day and reporting no discomfort in his left hamstring, Key was cleared to take his scheduled turn against the Detroit Tigers."He had no problems. He did great," Johnson said."It felt fine," said Key, who also ran the last two days. "No news is good news."During his bullpen session, Key said he did everything he normally would in a game, throwing all his pitches out of the stretch and windup.
