As the Orioles went 5-1 on this week's six-game homestand, it's been an eventful week for right-handed reliever Pedro Strop. Earlier this week, with closer Jim Johnson hospitalized with food poisoning, Strop had the opportunity to step into the ninth-inning role and earned his first two career big-league saves on back-to-back nights Tuesday and Wednesday against Toronto. Strop, who has spent most of the season pitching in an eighth-inning set-up role, thrived under the late-inning pressure, throwing 98-mph two-seam sinking fastball that cuts off the corners of the plate.

Everybody loses.Let's get that straight right at the beginning. If the Major League Baseball Players Association sets a strike date next Monday and then goes through with its threat to shut down the final months of the season, everybody loses.The fans lose, because the mixed blessing of realignment -- for better and worse -- has made the 1994 season one of the most interesting in years.The owners lose, because they dragged their feet on a revenue-sharing plan and now are in danger of losing great sums of playoff and World Series money.

CINCINNATI -- Major-league owners appeared to set the stage for baseball's angriest confrontation yesterday when they approved by unanimous vote a labor proposal believed to create broad new limits on player salaries.Details of the management proposal were the subject of intense speculation yesterday, mostly because owners leaving a lengthy afternoon meeting refused to discuss them until after a negotiating session Tuesday with player representatives.But a central point of the plan almost certainly is a salary cap that would limit player salaries by tying them to owners' overall revenues.

This is not one of those strike preview/review essays.There will be no suggestions of what each side should do. Why would anyone waste perfectly good breath on it?A good place to hold the negotiation sessions, though, would be Central Park, about midnight.There will be no lamenting what terrific seasons some of the chattels are having . . . and how unjust it is that they may be deprived of the opportunity of attaining one-season immortality. Or having their bubble-gum card take on the value of the Hope Diamond.
