FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Orioles reliever Terry Mathews showed up at camp with a smaller waist and a shorter memory. Both should serve him well.Lost are the extra pounds that he acquires over the course of every season, additions to a soft physique that mask his athletic ability and work ethic. Nearly forgotten are the failings over the second half of last year that damaged both his ERA and his relationship with the fans in Baltimore.He'll never truly forget, of course. There's probably still some ringing in his ears from the booing and catcalls that greeting his entrance into Game 3 of the Division Series, and intensified when he allowed back-to-back home runs in the ninth inning of a 4-2 loss.

ONE RECENT night in the Baltimore Orioles dugout, Manager Ray Miller laced into relief pitcher Terry Mathews, but good. Mathews, the most forlorn figure in a dreadful season, had dared to show his frustration when yanked from a ballgame. Miller was showing him who was boss. In fact, he thought he was showing everyone who was boss. The bawling-out was captured by a Home Team Sports television camera.Later, it was reported, Miller thanked HTS color announcer Rick Cerone for the channel's presentation of his harangue.

O's free fall no surpriseI am not surprised by the Orioles' pitiful self-destruction. I expected it. I must admit it is a surprise at how early in the season they fell apart. I figured they'd get to July before the implosion, but May?You can't blame the GMs. They have no real authority. Ray Miller is a lousy manager (Tom Kelly got the Twins to the World Series really fast after Miller was canned), but it's not all his fault, either. The players may be old, slow, tired and lazy, but they're just the guys that management put out there to begin with.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Orioles reliever Terry Mathews is the youngest of seven children, and naturally, his father said the other day, the youngest is always a little spoiled.Sharing chores with three brothers and three sisters in Alexandria, La., Terry preferred the easiest jobs. "He liked to drive the tractor," remembered John Mathews. "But I thought he was better at hoeing and picking peas."Terry Mathews' father is a farmer, and his grandfather is a farmer, and his great-grandfather was a farmer, in a long line of farmers.

SEATTLE -- Less than two weeks after a distraught Alan Mills slumped into Davey Johnson's office believing his career over, the Orioles manager is impressed enough with Mills' progress from a damaged nerve that he is advocating the right-hander soon begin a minor-league rehab assignment.Johnson suggested that Mills be assigned to either Double-A Bowie or Single-A Frederick when the Orioles leave Friday for a seven-game, three-city road trip."For my money, I'd want him to get back out," said Johnson.

He was booed the moment his foot hit the warning track on the way in from the bullpen, and the reception grew harsher from there. The largest crowd in the history of Camden Yards gave Terry Mathews an earful yesterday, and as the fans fired away at the beleaguered reliever, all he could give back was more ammunition.With little time to warm up, Mathews was brought into the ninth inning of Game 3 of the Division Series, after Arthur Rhodes had to leave with stiffness in his forearm. The Orioles were behind by two runs.

MONTREAL -- The end of the season's first half apparently also marked the end of manager Ray Miller's patience, and the Orioles intend to devote the next two days to reshaping their roster and batting order.A late-night meeting among Miller, his coaches and assistant general manager Kevin Malone after Saturday's game cemented the manager's push to subtract at least one veteran -- Norm Charlton or Terry Mathews -- from a porous bullpen.Before yesterday's game -- an 8-4 loss that capped a three-game Montreal Expos sweep and extended the Orioles' losing streak to six -- Miller planned to alter the lineup radically.

The latest health question to be raised on the Orioles' pitching staff concerns Terry Mathews, who has stepped up treatment on a sore right wrist that manager Ray Miller said could be the source of the reliever's faulty mechanics and stormy appearances.Mathews has began icing the wrist before and after games, soaking it in the whirlpool and applying medication -- "just basically trying anything," he said.The pain is confined to a circular area on top of the wrist, he said, and may be the reason his slider and sinker no longer have any bite.

MIAMI -- They received a home run that wasn't, a winning pitching performance that didn't and were offered a game in the standings they wouldn't accept.When done, the Orioles had suffered a wrenching 3-2 loss to the Florida Marlins in a 10-inning game last night they had every excuse to win but found every way to lose.Edgar Renteria finally ended it with a two-out single against Terry Mathews (3-4) to score pinch runner Gregg Zaun, ending the Orioles' string of eight consecutive extra-inning wins while intensifying questions about an increasingly lost offense.

A tired bullpen and a starter who hadn't been able to go beyond the sixth inning in his previous four starts were a dangerous combination for the Orioles to bring into Camden Yards yesterday. And just the right spark to ignite chants of "1969" among a smattering of New York Mets fans.Seemingly able to place the ball in every bit of open territory against Rick Krivda and two relievers, the Mets abused Orioles pitching for 19 hits and evened this interleague series with a 13-6 victory before 48,068.
