The Orioles will have to go without a true long reliever in the next few days, because Mike Oquist likely is joining the rotation, and the other pitchers in the bullpen have typically been used about an inning at a time.

BARCELONA, Spain -- The Cubans in the section by the first-base line kept banging the drums. They danced, smoked cigars and drenched each other with beer. Several Cuban players showered each other with champagne on the pitcher's mound while others carried the Cuban flag around the stadium.It was party time Cuban style at L'Hospitalet Stadium last night.Cuba had won 71 of its previous 72 games, but none of the victories was like the 11-1 win over Taiwan last night.It gave the Cubans the first gold medal ever awarded for baseball and was a source of a lot of pride.
