Nursing a beer at a bar across from Camden Yards a couple of hours before game time yesterday, John Castro wasn't in any mood to predict a pennant for the Orioles this year. He has been to about 20 Opening Days, but after eight straight losing seasons, he knows better than to get caught up in Opening Day euphoria. Just then, all the 49-year-old respiratory therapist from Severna Park was willing to predict was a 6-5 win over Tampa Bay. Whattayaknow? The Orioles wound up stinging the Devil Rays 9-6.

FROM THE romantic nostalgia of Seabiscuit and Funny Cide, we move on to a new and decidedly less feel-good theme this racing season. Forget underdog, crooked-legged colts and yellow school buses carrying drunkenly happy high school buddies to Churchill Downs, Pimlico and Belmont. This is the year of the jockey.
