NEW YORK - The day began with the reading of the most solemn, sad roster imaginable. We shall not forget. Absolutely. From the hole in the ground where the Twin Towers once stood, name after noble name was breathed into the air yesterday. And the air stirred. It whipped and spun all over sunny New York City, making people here believe that the souls of the lost were restless. One year later, one year to the day that 2,801 victims were killed at the World Trade Center, it was impossible not to at least consider that the calling of those names was why tree branches snapped off and crashed to the ground; why dirt blew up in mini-twisters; why hats flew and hair swirled.

There's probably only one person in Baltimore who is not terrified at the prospect of seeing Frank Thomas at Camden Yards this weekend, and that's Mike Mussina.How's that, you ask, since the Chicago White Sox first baseman has a career .619 batting average against Mussina with four home runs, including one last weekend at Comiskey Park?Mussina, mercifully, has the weekend off and won't see Thomas again until later in the year.There's hardly a pitcher alive who wants to face Thomas at any time, but certainly not now when the ball is jumping off his bat, to the tune of 21 home runs in the first two months of the season.

CHICAGO -- When Bo Jackson stepped into the batting cage yesterday to prepare for his Chicago White Sox debut, he stole the normal ballpark sounds from the air. Only the crack of bat against ball pierced the eerie stillness; twice, the crack was followed by the muted thud of a line drive hitting distant seats."

Jason Johnson had moments on the mound two years ago when he wondered if he was safe even being there with diabetes. He wondered about his future with the Orioles. He wondered if he'd ever win again. Any thoughts of balls and strikes competed with those worries, so it's little surprise he finished that miserable season 1-10. Then, Johnson took control. With the help of his wife, Stacey, he found an insulin pump that regulated his blood sugar, he found strength through his religion and, eventually, he found the strike zone.

New York Mets Record: 94-68, 2nd place, 1 back, beat Giants in Division Series, Cardinals in NLCS, lost to Yankees in World Series Runs scored: 807 (7th in NL) Runs allowed: 738 (3rd in NL) Manager: Bobby Valentine Home: Shea Stadium That was then: New York did nothing to fix its troubles against the Braves, who have won 18 of the past 24 meetings, but it made the postseason for a club-record second straight year and reached the World Series - in part because the Cardinals took out Atlanta.

NEW YORK -- When New York Mets third baseman Robin Ventura was swarmed by his teammates between first and second base last night, he lost the distinction of becoming the first major-league player to hit a walk-off grand slam in a postseason game. Rule 4.11 of the Official Baseball Rules only refers to a situation where a base runner overruns a preceding runner after hitting a game-ending home run, but the most logical interpretation of that rule pointed to the conclusion reached by official scorer Red Foley and the Elias Sports Bureau -- that Ventura could only be credited with a single and one RBI. The rule states that if "the batter hits a home run out of the playing field to win the game in the last half of the ninth or an extra inning but is called out for passing a preceding runner, the game ends immediately when the winning run is scored."

Hoping to announce the signing of a $115 million left-right combination that would salvage their listing off-season, the Orioles were instead stunned yesterday when incumbent first baseman Rafael Palmeiro rejected their five-year, $50 million offer to accept a $45 million package with the Texas Rangers.Palmeiro's reversal not only bruised a lineup bolstered by the acquisition of Albert Belle, but bruised feelings within an organization that twice thought it had reached an agreement with its MVP and two-time Gold Glove winner.

Hammonds, limited by neck injury, may land on DLJeffrey Hammonds was in the Orioles' starting lineup last night, but the prized rookie's playing time might be limited for the rest of the season. And there's a chance he'll go on the disabled list.Manager Johnny Oates said Hammonds will be used as a designated hitter for now. That means he will be used only against selected left-handers to give Harold Baines an occasional day off.Oates said he would not use Hammonds in the outfield "until we get more information."

Mike Mussina has been up and down this season. The downs have inflated his ERA, but they also have helped him become the major leagues' first 12-game winner.Three starts after the shortest outing of his career, Mussina pitched seven solid innings last night, striking out seven, giving up two earned runs and helping the Orioles hang on to a 4-3 victory before a sellout crowd of 47,353 at Oriole Park and before more offensive help by the name of Bobby Bonilla arrives."Getting knocked out in the first inning a couple of starts has been kind of good," Mussina said.
