Don't expect manager Johnny Oates to do much, if any, lineup juggling in the next few weeks.That's not because the Orioles' hitting has been great through the first 20 games, but rather because hardly anybody on the team is hitting well enough to justify being moved in the order."

For a guy on the verge of making his first major-league start, pitcher Mike Oquist was a pretty relaxed fellow in the Orioles' clubhouse yesterday, watching television and even getting in some light reading.After his start against the Cleveland Indians was washed away by yesterday's steady rain and resulting postponement, Oquist was philosophical, especially because there are no guarantees that he'll get another chance."Sure, you're disappointed," Oquist said. "It's your first big-league start, and you get rained out. I've got to sit back and wait my turn.

Baseball's "Operation Speedup" won't start until two weeks from today, but this year's All-Star Game provided an early indication of what to expect. Fewer runs, better pitching and more emphasis on defense.Those ingredients, however, won't kick in until next year, when the operation's second phase (a higher pitching mound and more liberal strike zone) is scheduled to take effect. That's when baseball takes its big gamble -- sacrificing offense.The National League's 3-2 victory Tuesday night was recorded in two hours and 40 minutes -- 13 minutes faster than the average game the first half of the season.

If the early, and very preliminary, returns are any indication, baseball will have to go to the second phase of its speedup plan to have an impact in the American League.The past weekend was the start of what is expected to be a trial run in an effort to pick up the game's pace. But, contrary to some belief, there were no new rules to be enforced.Instead, the commissioner's office issued a set of guidelines intended to quicken the game without undue distractions. They revolve mainly around eliminating 20 seconds between each half-inning, making pitching changes quicker and getting the hitters and pitchers to avoid unnecessary delays.

OPERATION SPEEDUP. No kidding fans, that's what baseball moguls proclaimed last July as the National Game deteriorated into the National Boredom."Fewer runs, better pitching and more emphasis on defense," that's what long-suffering spectators were promised.The result? Let us quote Orioles pitcher Mike Mussina: "Smaller strike zone, smaller ball parks, bad pitching, bigger hitters, loaded baseballs, corked bats and higher-altitude cities. . . Does that about cover it?"Indeed it does. Operation Speedup has turned into Operation Slo-o-o-w down.

If the current round of baseball labor talks falls through and the owners insist on bringing replacement players to spring training, count on hearing less of the Orioles on the radio than you might expect.That's because WBAL (1090 AM) will do fewer exhibition games and do them in a different way, station manager Jeff Beauchamp said.Beauchamp said the station, the flagship outlet for Orioles broadcasts, is considering a "play-by-occasional-play" plan, if the team opens spring training camp with replacement players.
