Orioles manager Davey Johnson had talked about the idea of using a bullpen by committee, a system he had run successfully in Cincinnati. But in the end, club officials convinced Johnson he simply would not have the bullpen depth with the Orioles that he had enjoyed in Cincinnati.In Cincinnati, he had solid pitchers such as Jeff Brantley, Mike Jackson and Hector Carrasco; here he had only Jesse Orosco and a lot of question marks.So, the Orioles decided to sign an established closer -- Randy Myers, who agreed to a two-year, $6.3 million deal yesterday.

NEW YORK -- The Orioles would have loved a sweep. Three out of four would've been great. But as it turns out, splitting a four-game series against the Yankees in the Bronx isn't the worst thing in the world.Not as far as the Orioles are concerned.The team wasn't exactly chipper after taking the fourth game of the series yesterday afternoon and earning the split. But they weren't sulking either."Coming in and winning two of four is just OK," manager Davey Johnson said. "We needed to win three of four.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Manager Davey Johnson does not have many secrets left. He announced his regular-season starting rotation yesterday -- as if there were ever any mystery about that -- and left little doubt about the makeup of the Opening Day roster.Mike Mussina will be on the mound when the Orioles open the season against the Kansas City Royals on Monday at Camden Yards. David Wells will pitch the second game and Scott Erickson the series finale."You can probably figure out the rest of it from there," Johnson deadpanned.

The Orioles signed free agent B. J. Surhoff to a three-year contract yesterday, moving to plug a hole at third base. But news of that acquisition could be dwarfed today, if general manager Pat Gillick succeeds in his aggressive pursuit of All-Star free agents David Cone and Roberto Alomar.Gillick increased his three-year offers to Cone and Alomar, and he likely will find out today if he has successfully lured Cone away from the rival New York Yankees."A decision could come down [today]," said Steve Fehr, Cone's agent.
