Ray Miller had three different stints as the Orioles' pitching coach spread over 11 seasons and one as manager that lasted two years. But his legacy in helping develop a host of talented pitchers — five different 20-game winners and a pair of Cy Young Award winners — made Miller an obvious candidate for the team's Hall of Fame. Five years after he last wore an Orioles uniform, that legacy was celebrated Saturday night during a pre-game ceremony at Camden Yards in which Miller was honored along with late Orioles manager Johnny Oates and Len Johnston, who held several positions in the team's minor league system for more than 30 years.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- If you're Brady Anderson, do you make a case for hitting first, complain about batting third or simply take the fifth?None of the above.Though stating a preference for batting leadoff this season, the Orioles' center fielder said after yesterday's workout that he'll hit "wherever they put me." And that could be third, depending on which lineup manager Ray Miller settles upon from a bevy of possibilities.It was only a few days ago, during a conversation with his father, that Anderson said he learned about the possibility of dropping in the order.

When Ray Miller learned that he would be inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame this August, the former manager and legendary pitching coach immediately thought of his late best friend, who is already in the club's Hall. "I got tears real quick and the first thing I thought about was Elrod Hendricks, my buddy," said Miller, who had three stints as the Orioles' pitching coach and managed the team in 1998 and 1999. "And I thought about Cal (Ripken) Sr., and Earl (Weaver) and (George)

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- In his second incarnation as Orioles pitching coach, Mike Flanagan has found peace, contentment and a chance to be a real pitching coach.That much is apparent even in the early stages of spring training. Manager Ray Miller, the second former pitching coach to hire Flanagan in the past four years, may turn out to be a hands-on manager, but he has made it clear that he wants to see Flanagan's fingerprints on the pitching staff."I had to find out if he was willing to come down out of the [broadcast]

It's 9: 30 a.m. and Ray Miller already has laid his cards on the table. Spread about his suburban apartment are the tendencies of Ken Griffey, Edgar Martinez, Alex Rodriguez and every other Seattle Mariner who might do his pitchers harm. Less than two months into Miller's return home, the cards are dealing.Back in Baltimore after a 10-year tour of the National League, Miller's return as Orioles pitching coach has coincided with one of the game's most remarkable transformations. In a place transfixed by longball a year ago, ground-ball outs, quality starts and first-pitch strikes have become the rage.

BOSTON - Because of yesterday's rainout, Orioles manager Lee Mazzilli said right-hander Daniel Cabrera, who was scheduled to start the series finale against the Boston Red Sox, will have his spot in the rotation skipped. Cabrera's next scheduled start is Tuesday at home against the Toronto Blue Jays - 11 days after his last start. Cabrera (1-1, 7.65 ERA) walked six and gave up five earned runs in 5 2/3 innings on Friday against the Blue Jays, though he didn't factor in the decision. "This has nothing personal to do with Daniel," said Orioles pitching coach Ray Miller.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The talk came on the first day of spring training, pitching coach to young left-hander, teacher to pupil. Though he mangles the English language on occasion, Ray Miller doesn't mince words. If he has a message to deliver, he makes sure it won't fall upon deaf ears. Pulling aside Matt Riley, 25, the one-time phenom who has been striking out batters and breaking hearts for years, Miller reminded him he's out of minor league options. Play time was over. "I told him, `You can't be a kid anymore.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Ray Miller flips on the television and is reminded again about the baseball industry's perception of his starting rotation. No matter which buttons he hits on his remote, negativity spews from the screen. He'd be better served if the cable went out. So why is this man smiling? Rehired as pitching coach on June 26, Miller strolls through the clubhouse at Fort Lauderdale Stadium as though he's carrying more than a clipboard. He's also got a secret. "I like hearing that our pitching isn't good enough, and I've been hearing it all over," Miller said earlier this week, before pitchers and catchers were scheduled to report to camp today.

LIFE LESSONS sometimes come in strange packages, and Orioles pitcher Sidney Ponson clearly is still sorting out what happened in Aruba two weeks ago. Is he mad? Sad? Chastened? Maybe all of the above. Ponson has had plenty of time to reflect on the Dec. 25 incident that led to his arrest on assault charges and his confinement in an Aruba jail for 11 days, but clarity isn't coming easy. He knows he screwed up, but he also feels abandoned and betrayed by an island nation in which he is supposed to be a hero.

The Baltimore portion of Carl Pavano's free-agent tour officially ended around 5 p.m. yesterday when he ducked into a black limousine parked outside the B&O warehouse and rushed to the airport for his flight to Seattle. Maybe it's an encouraging sign for the Orioles that he wasn't in a hurry to leave. Pavano was running late after taking a tour of the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum and soaking up more of the atmosphere that the Orioles hope will entice him to sign a contract. He asked questions, joked about wanting to take home all the memorabilia he had seen, marveled at the artwork on one of the office walls at Camden Yards depicting heroes from past Orioles teams.
