Given the choice, Anaheim Angels free agent Troy Glaus wants to stay at third base. If the Orioles still regard him as an option at first, their selling job will have to include more than the city and the stadium. Glaus would give the Orioles a much-desired right-handed hitter, and a proven run producer whose 2004 season was wrecked by a shoulder injury that required surgery. But team executives Jim Beattie and Mike Flanagan indicated at last week's general managers' meetings that they weren't going to move Melvin Mora from third.

SEATTLE -- The solutions to the Orioles' starting pitching problems remain as elusive as a quality start from the group. The trade market is mostly barren of effective starters. The farm system is bare of pitchers who the organization feels are ready to step in. There's no getting around it. The Orioles need help now, they just don't know where to turn. They thought their top pitching prospect, Hayden Penn, could help, but the right-hander, who was supposed to start tonight, needed an emergency appendectomy last night and is now on the disabled list.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - After losing out to the New York Yankees on Carl Pavano and sputtering in their attempts to grab Carlos Delgado and Tim Hudson, the Orioles focused their efforts yesterday on signing free-agent first baseman Richie Sexson. The 6-foot-8 Sexson dropped by the Anaheim Marriott on Day 2 of the winter meetings and joined agent Casey Close for a meeting in the Orioles' suite. The Orioles have already made at least one offer to Sexson, and a team source said it was for four years.

It was a game decided by the thinnest of margins, a split second in the fifth inning, and another one in the ninth. The winning run scored when Seattle first baseman Richie Sexson's foot touched home plate, just as Orioles catcher Ramon Hernandez applied the tag. The tying run was prevented when Adrian Beltre's throw disappeared into the outstretched glove of Sexson, just as Corey Patterson was about to step on first base.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Even though it looked like the Orioles had suffered another disappointment last night, as free-agent first baseman Richie Sexson moved closer to a deal with the Seattle Mariners, Orioles officials had not given up hope. Vice president Mike Flanagan said the team has a meeting scheduled with Sexson's agent this morning after the Rule 5 draft, and as of late last night the club was convinced it was still in the running. This contradicted intense speculation at the winter meetings that Sexson, who had 45 home runs for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2001 and 2003 before being traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks, had agreed to terms with the Mariners, pending a physical examination.

For once, the weather wasn't the only nasty element at Camden Yards. Orioles pitcher Jason Johnson definitely would have preferred more thunder to the electricity he generated. Both benches and bullpens emptied last night after Johnson hit the Milwaukee Brewers' Richie Sexson in the third inning, and a routine interleague game nearly degenerated into a full-scale brawl. With the novelty of rain delays having worn off days ago, both clubs apparently were looking for a little more excitement.

The Orioles broke out a different lineup for last night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers, using Jay Gibbons as the designated hitter for the first time this season, putting Melvin Mora in right field and making David Segui wait at least one more day before playing. Manager Mike Hargrove hinted that Segui could start today, with Jeff Conine perhaps going to the bench. Segui hasn't played since Wednesday, when he fouled a pitch off his foot against the Chicago Cubs, and with B.J. Surhoff on a roll, there's no need to rush him back.

Quote: "Beating a top team always feels good because their payroll is like $60 million and ours is like $16 [million]." - reliever Eddie Guardado after the Twins beat the Cardinals It's a fact: The Braves have played five games at Tropicana Field and have had a player homer twice in each of them. Who's hot: The Astros' Scott Elarton has allowed six earned runs in his past 37 1/3 innings (a 1.45 ERA). Who's not: The Indians' Richie Sexson has hit .190 (11-for-58) with 20 strikeouts in his past 20 games.

Rather than pencil first baseman Richie Sexson into the middle of their lineup next season, the Orioles had to cross him off their free-agent list yesterday when he signed a four-year, $50 million contract with the Seattle Mariners. The deal became official once the Mariners viewed the results of a magnetic resonance imaging test taken yesterday on Sexson's surgically repaired left shoulder. It also had the Orioles again sifting through their remaining options. "This is first and foremost where I wanted to be," said Sexson, who is from Brush Prairie, Wash.

San Francisco Giants superstar Barry Bonds is getting tired of all the intentional walks, which should come as no surprise to anyone, since baseball fans are tired of them, too. No matter what you think of Bonds - and whether you suspect that his terrific home run numbers are more the result of chemistry than physics - it's hard to watch one of the most exciting home run hitters in history watch four 60-mph pitches and jog to first base. He received his record 500th career intentional walk from Atlanta Braves reliever Antonio Alfonseca on Wednesday night, which means he has been intentionally walked for about one full season.

PHOENIX - The Orioles might be a team to watch on the free-agent market this year, but they sure didn't jump yesterday, when the market opened, the way the Philadelphia Phillies did last year. As soon as the 2002 opening bell sounded, the Phillies made formal offers to Jim Thome, Tom Glavine and David Bell. Eventually, Philadelphia wound up signing Bell and Thome, whose six-year, $85 million contract was the biggest any player signed all offseason. This year, the Orioles have strong interest in Montreal Expos right fielder Vladimir Guerrero, the most coveted player on the market, but so far, they're using a more conservative approach.

Cal Ripken was looking for a breaking ball. He swung at a fastball."Pretty smart hitting, huh?" he said.Pretty effective. Ripken grounded a two-out single into right field in the seventh inning last night for his 2,849th career hit, breaking the Orioles' record previously held by Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson.Ripken fouled off the first pitch from Cleveland starter Jaret Wright before finding a hole on the right side. A crowd of 48,374, the largest ever for a regular-season game at Camden Yards, immediately rose for an ovation that lasted until the next batter, Willie Greene, had taken a pitch from Wright.
