If Todd Stottlemyre had to pitch a game a day ahead of schedule and without his normal rest, it would figure to be against the Orioles.The Blue Jays' right-hander will take an 8-1 career record into tonight's game as the Orioles try to complete a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays.Stottlemyre (3-0, 3.38) was not originally scheduled to pitch, but was moved up a day to replace Dave Stewart, who was scratched because of a strained groin muscle. He will be working on three days of rest instead of the customary four days between starts.

THE FIRST all-New York World Series in 44 years has engendered fond memories of the simpler times after World War II, when a western road trip in Major League Baseball meant a train ride to Chicago and St. Louis. After all, before the Dodgers and Giants departed for California, the series was practically an annual New York event. From 1947 to 1956, the Yankees and Dodgers met in a subway series six times, and the Giants had one appearance against their Bronx brethren, courtesy of Bobby Thompson's renowned home run. Still, amid all the nostalgia, I cannot help but think of a more recent personification of New York baseball than someone who is fighting for more than a world championship.

Some major-league clubs have decided to sit out the free-agent hunt until January, hoping the dearth of activity will lower salary demands. Others are sitting it out to wait to see what economic system will govern the game, thus protecting themselves from having to pay penalties for overspending.The Orioles, meanwhile, continue to talk to free agents, but are undecided as to how quickly they will take the next step actually to sign players.Free-agent pitchers Bill Swift (with the San Francisco Giants in 1994)

Quote: "If the 162-game schedule is an equalizer, then we've got a lot of one-run victories coming." -- Manager Larry Dierker, whose Astros are 0-12 in one-run decisions It's a fact: The Mets are 9-0 in games started by a left-hander. Who's hot: . Extra ushers were in the right-field bleachers near the Braves' bullpen as John Rocker made his first appearance of the year in Milwaukee. Who's not: The Rockies' Darren Bragg is in a 2-for-25 slump. On deck: The Diamondbacks' Todd Stottlemyre goes for his league-leading eighth victory tonight.

PHILADELPHIA -- Ed Rendell, the mayor of Philadelphia, didn't show much respect for Todd Stottlemyre, who will pitch Game 4 of the World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays here tonight.During a visit to Toronto, Rendell was critical of the Blue Jays' pitching staff, particularly Stottlemyre. "I could envision them [the Phillies] getting swept by a combination of the White Sox's pitching and the Blue Jays' hitting," said Rendell."But not this pitching staff. If Frank Thomas could hit a ball 430 feet off Stottlemyre, I could hit one 270. I'd like to bat against him."

TORONTO -- When Todd Stottlemyre last left a pitching mound, he was doubly embarrassed.Not only had he let a 3-0 lead rapidly disintegrate, but he also had been needlessly thrown out of the game because of a rule misinterpretation. His only salvation was that the Toronto Blue Jays came from behind to register one of their two wins on the just-completed seven-game road trip to Boston and Detroit.After that game Wednesday, Stottlemyre was in bad need of a pick-me-up. Of all the starting pitchers with at least 100 innings, he had the highest ERA in the American League (5.13)

No longer in position to digest the whole pie, the Orioles settled for a few crumbs last night. And they tasted best to Fernando Valenzuela.The veteran left-hander might have been making his final appearance for the Orioles, and he did it on a high note. The 50th consecutive sellout at Camden Yards (45,881) gave him a standing ovation that resulted in one of the few curtain calls of the year.Valenzuela (8-10) scattered eight hits over 6 2/3 innings as the Orioles registered a 7-2 win over the American League East champion Toronto Blue Jays.

TORONTO -- Baltimore Orioles pitcher Bob Milacki could only chalk it up to the vagaries of an unpredictable sport. He pitched one of his best games of the year last night and still came up a loser.Milacki equaled a career high with 10 strikeouts and pitched his second complete game of the year, but Toronto Blue Jays starter Todd Stottlemyre dominated the Orioles again on the way to a 3-1 victory at SkyDome.Stottlemyre has faced the Orioles three times this year and given up three earned runs in 22 innings (1.23 ERA)

The Orioles officially embark upon a clubhouse renovation today, when clubs may begin exchanging offers with free agents. Few if any franchises will be more closely scrutinized.Coming off a disastrous fourth-place finish that made a $77 million payroll resemble folly, the Orioles are both a driving force within the marketplace and a work in progress for first-year general manager Frank Wren.Though they have been linked to virtually every prominent free agent, from Kevin Brown to Mo Vaughn to Bernie Williams, the Orioles have quietly crafted a blueprint that focuses on Williams -- the American League batting champion and an elegant center fielder with the New York Yankees -- rather than Vaughn as their most expensive cornerstone.

It's early, but the Toronto Blue Jays have got to be thinking that they got the better of the blockbuster deal that sent five-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens to the mighty New York Yankees for David Wells, reliever Graeme Lloyd and second baseman Homer Bush.Let me count the ways:Wells entered the weekend with a 3-0 record and a 2.55 ERA in his first three starts. Clemens isn't doing too bad, either, at 2-0, but his ERA is a less-impressive 4.07.Lloyd has moved into a co-closer role and has two saves and an 0.93 ERA for the Blue Jays.

The Orioles have intensified efforts to bolster their starting rotation by offering free-agent right-hander Todd Stottlemyre a four-year, $26 million contract. While refusing to confirm numbers, Stottlemyre's agent, Tony Attanasio, described the offer as a "good starting point" and anticipates further talks.General manager Frank Wren made the bid on Thursday. Yesterday, the Orioles suffered their first loss due to free agency when the Los Angeles Dodgers signed right-handed reliever Alan Mills to a three-year, $6.5 million contract, reuniting the middle reliever with former Orioles manager Davey Johnson and assistant general manager Kevin Malone.

ATLANTA -- Former Montreal Expos general manager Kevin Malone is emerging as the front-runner to replace Roland Hemond as Orioles general manager.Orioles officials contacted Malone again in the last few days, following up on his strong interview of Oct. 9 with owner Peter Angelos and club counsel Russell Smouse.If they work out a deal, the GM-manager combination of Malone and Davey Johnson could be announced as soon as tomorrow. Major League Baseball asks teams to refrain from making major announcements during the World Series, so as not to overshadow the event.

The major-league baseball strike started Aug. 12, but, for Joe Oliver, the season ended exactly four months earlier.On April 12, the veteran Cincinnati Reds catcher was diagnosed with synovitis (a form of arthritis) of the ankles and knees and never played again in 1994."I was thinking my career might be over," Oliver said yesterday after getting three hits, including a home run off Alan Mills, and two RBIs in Milwaukee's 7-0 victory that ruined the Orioles' home opener."I had never had a problem with any injuries, had never been on the disabled list.

TORONTO -- The two-time defending world champion Toronto Blue Jays already had ample reason to feel lower than a loan shark.Then a bizarre ninth-inning play intensified their hopelessness, stoked their fires of embarrassment, and ultimately left their manager, Cito Gaston, holed up in his office, the door closed.The Orioles scored three runs without the aid of a hit or an RBI on the play, the final kick to the teeth for the reeling Blue Jays.More on the play later, after a review of why the last-place Blue Jays already had reason to wish the strike went into effect two weeks ago.Mike Mussina (11-4, 2.67)
