At some point today, with his players dressed and waiting to take the field for batting practice, Mike Hargrove might lean back in his chair in the visiting manager's office at Camden Yards, his fingers clutching the Orioles' lineup card. Maybe he'll scan the names, imagine the possibilities. If he doesn't tear the card into small pieces, it's only because he has tremendous restraint. Shouldn't he be allowed to scream, even for a few seconds, knowing he never had it so good? Miguel Tejada will start at shortstop, Melvin Mora at third base.

Rating the players **** Jay Gibbons: A pretty smart December pickup. *** Jeff Conine: His average is up to .344, and his 14 RBIs lead the team. ** Cal Ripken: The bat was slow on his opposite-field double, but it did the job. And again, no setbacks. Jerry Hairston: Contributes a fifth-inning single, but he's scuffling. Jose Mercedes: He'll never get three stars because that's his unlucky number. * Ryan Kohlmeier: Would have been worse if a save had been on the line. The arms Mercedes allowed 10 hits and four runs (three earned)

There was a preseason question about the Delmarva Shorebirds, who had a tough act to follow.Could they match their first year, when, as a Montreal Expos affiliate, they went all the way to the South Atlantic League championship series?The question was answered resoundingly. Now aligned with the Orioles, Delmarva went all the way, period. Kingpins of the league."It was kind of unbelievable that so many good things could happen in one season," said general manager Keith Lupton. "We're looking forward to next year, but this is something that will be hard for us to duplicate."

Chris Richard -- UP -- Rookie first baseman homered twice, had six RBIs and came within two feet of hitting for the cycle Sunday in Cleveland. Former understudy to Mark McGwire has been a pleasant offensive surprise; finding him a position remains a challenge. Injury intrigue -- DOWN -- Scott Erickson was described as suffering elbow "inflammation" just before he underwent ligament replacement surgery. Now, the club says Albert Belle's hip is "day-to-day." Whatever. Ryan Kohlmeier -- EVEN -- Last month, the rookie closer resembled Goose Gossage.

**** Jason Johnson: Last year's spring washout was this spring's Most Valuable Oriole. Jay Gibbons: Hope he stays healthy so fans can watch him rake. Delino DeShields: No one better embodies a team player. Position switch has given his career a second wind. *** Brady Anderson: Accused of disinterest last season, he showed what a difference being healthy makes. Willis Roberts: Jose Mercedes II? Mark Wiley: O's latest pitching coach accomplished the improbable - he earned a tough crowd's respect in a matter of weeks.

CLEVELAND - Ryan Kohlmeier survived the winter as the Orioles' closer. To listen to him, no one was more surprised than Ryan Kohlmeier. In a role that almost demands bulletproof confidence coupled with an irritating swagger, the Orioles' right-hander is a stark, even refreshing, exception. He knows he was handed the role last summer quite by accident and views his return in much the same way, no matter how much the Orioles compliment him on his makeup, his cool and his talent. "My stuff and my physical makeup is just not what you see in your prototypical closer," Kohl meier says.

DETROIT - Another day, another pitching move. Two days after receiving the first major-league win by a pitcher for the fourth time this season, the Orioles promoted reliever Jorge Julio from Double-A Bowie while optioning John Bale to Triple-A Rochester. Julio, 22, was in uniform for last night's game against the Detroit Tigers. He stands to join Chad Paronto as the second Orioles pitcher to make his major-league debut in the last week. Julio strong-armed his way onto the 40-man roster by recording four saves and a 0.00 ERA in six games for the Baysox.

IT'S EASY to overlook the bullpen when compiling the Orioles' wish list for improvement in 2002 and beyond. The club needs starting pitching and a power bat, and the bullpen has pitched better this season than a year ago. But despite what those circumstances would seem to indicate, improving the bullpen remains a top priority. Any changes made to improve other weaknesses would be wasted without a tighter 'pen capable of holding more leads and building confidence. It's not a coincidence that the Orioles last had a winning season when they last had a dependable, consistent relief corps - in 1997.

BOSTON - Deliberations have begun over the number of players to be promoted when major-league rosters expand Sept. 1, with the Orioles apparently adopting a less-is-more approach. Vice president of baseball operations Syd Thrift and manager Mike Hargrove have only discussed "parameters" of the expanded clubhouse. Significant weight is being given to the amount of playing time prospects would receive. With so many younger players already on the roster - and so few position prospects having laudable seasons at Rochester or Bowie - current thinking holds that September opportunities should be reserved for those part of the club's immediate future.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Anaheim Angels became less painful to the Orioles than initially thought yesterday when the club learned that starting pitcher Willis Roberts suffered no structural damage to his right knee during an on-field collapse in the game's sixth inning. Roberts was carted from the field after crumpling on a two-out pitch that hit Angels second baseman David Eckstein. Roberts stretched out on his back for several minutes while team trainers examined his right knee.

Short on bench, short on bullpen and today possibly short another starting pitcher, the Orioles watched a potential three-game sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays turn into something ugly last night. Able to work their bullpen freely while receiving the decisive run from a luxury the Orioles lacked, the Blue Jays worked over Ryan Kohlmeier and Chuck McElroy for a 6-5 win before the leftover diehards from an announced crowd of 30,062 at Camden Yards. What looked to be starter Willis Roberts' first win in almost a month instead ended with a twist of intrigue after his abrupt departure in the seventh inning.

A perfect ninth inning by Ryan Kohlmeier on April 25 did more than produce another save. It marked the first time the Orioles' closer had gone through an appearance without allowing a base runner. Kohlmeier has stayed clean ever since, retiring every batter he's faced in his next two games. He got two fly balls and a grounder on Monday for his fifth save, and two pop-ups and a strikeout the next night for his sixth. On both occasions, he handcuffed the team that almost ripped the closer's job from his grasp.

DOWN - Cal Ripken At 40, Ripken (above, pointing) is a certain Hall of Famer, the Orioles' highest-paid active player ($6.3 million) and the club's most marketable figure. He is also officially now a part-time player. He may have signed his last deal on his terms, but he will play on the team's. DOWN - Brook Fordyce Charles Johnson's successor entered last night's game fighting a 1-for-27 slide and still looking for his first RBI. At least he's signed through 2003. UP - Bop Delino DeShields turned a down arrow upside-down by doubling his batting average in a week.
