SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles manager Buck Showalter had praise for new outfielder David Lough, but also tempered expectations for the 28-year-old. The Orioles acquired Lough in December for third baseman Danny Valencia, who emerged as the team's right-handed designated hitter against left-handed pitching. “Kansas City is a very good organization, and I hope and I think that the reason why we got him is because they really had a need for Danny Valencia,” Showalter said. Danny will fit them well.

Miguel Tejada was held out of the starting lineup Wednesday night for the fourth straight game because of a strained hip adductor, but manager Dave Trembley said he's confident the third baseman will be ready in time for Friday's series opener at Boston. "He's probably 90 percent," Trembley said. "It probably would have been pushing him to start him tonight. I know he wants to play, but I just didn't want to take a chance. With the off day tomorrow, it will do him real good and he'll be ready to start on Friday and play the weekend series in Boston."

Now that Cal Ripken has become the third player in the past year to get his 3,000th career hit, the focus can shift to the on-deck circle. Who's next? There are two veteran players close enough to get there if they can just hang on a little longer. New York Mets outfielder Rickey Henderson and Orioles designated hitter Harold Baines are both within striking distance. With Ripken at 3,000 Henderson needs 177 hits, a total that probably would require him to play into 2001 to accumulate.

NEWARK, N.J. - Tucked in the middle of downtown Newark, Riverside Stadium can hold about 6,200 fans, but on days the Atlantic League's Bears are playing, the 4-year-old stadium with an elevated view of the New York skyline is usually half-full. On Sunday, 3,738 were on hand to see the Bears play the Pennsylvania Road Warriors, and they were treated to a group of Clydesdales carting out the team mascot, Rip N' Ruppert, a water-chugging contest and old television show theme songs, which played over the sound system when Road Warriors came to bat. It was an unlikely place to see the greatest leadoff hitter of all time.

Rickey Henderson is at the top of the list of first-time Hall of Fame candidates. He's a lock, considering he's the all-time leader in stolen bases and is a member of the 3,000-hit club. He's also a 10-time All-Star and one of the most exciting players ever to wear a uniform. So we'll be seeing him on stage next summer. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog)

Now that baseball's career home run record has fallen after a 33-year reign by Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, the question is what's next? Which career record will be eclipsed and who will do it? One guess is runs scored, with the San Francisco Giants' Barry Bonds, the new home run king, closing in on speedster Rickey Henderson. Here's a look at some career records and whether we can expect an eventual changing of the guard. Home runs Record holder -- Bonds, 758 and counting Threats -- The common belief is that Bonds, 43, is just keeping the throne warm for New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, 32, who last week became the youngest player to reach 500. Ten more years at an average of 40 homers, and Rodriguez will obliterate whatever number Bonds reaches.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Rickey Henderson is still looking for a job at age 44, but the Orioles aren't interested. Henderson, who holds baseball's all-time records for stolen bases (1,403), bases on balls (2,179) and runs scored (2,288), played in 72 games for the Boston Red Sox last season, batting .223 with a .369 on-base average.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Orioles right fielder Jay Gibbons lost six pounds while fighting a viral infection over the past week, so it's no coincidence his offensive production suffered, too. Gibbons came down with the virus in Tampa Bay two weekends ago and had a difficult time eating. He was batting .317 with seven home runs and 12 RBIs through the first 17 games, but came into yesterday riding a 2-for-19 slump. Losing six pounds is a bigger deal to Gibbons these days because he dropped 20 pounds over the off-season on a vegetarian diet, slimming down his muscle mass to produce more bat speed.

Most major-league bats are made from white ash, but the San Francisco Giants' Barry Bonds has his made from sugar maple wood. "If Bonds breaks Mark McGwire's [home run] record, will he get an ash-terisk next to it?" Bert Sugar asks in SportsBusiness Journal. Sugar's play on words shows he's a sportswriter with good punmanship. Some others in his company: Tom FitzGerald of the San Francisco Chronicle, who wrote of the NBA's repeatedly fining Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban for blasting the officiating: "If this keeps up, we may have a Cuban whistle crisis on our hands."

Who's hot: The Cubs' Eric Young is 24-for-61 (.393) over his past 14 games. Who's not: At 11-20, the Brewers are still off to their worst start since 1970, their first year in Milwaukee.
