A cell phone rings and the mind begins playing home movies. Just like that. No warning, no time to gather emotions. One minute, former Orioles infielder Tim Hulett is stepping outside the door of his Shreveport, La., home to have dinner with his family. Then he finds out that his oldest son, Tug, has been drafted by the Texas Rangers. In a flash, a father and his four boys are in the back yard playing Wiffle ball, the years melting away. Such a warm illusion. "I knew he wanted to be drafted.

Tim HulettWhat he would be doing if there were no strike: He would be in some team's camp. Hulett, a free agent, said he has heard from "a lot of clubs." There are a couple of front-runners -- he won't say who -- but the Orioles, who have shown some interest, are not among them. "I'd love to play with the Orioles if they wanted me back," said Hulett. "But they have a new manager, new people in there and they probably have a new game plan, and there's nothing wrong with that." Hulett, 35, played the past six seasons with the Orioles, hitting .228 with two homers and 15 RBIs in 1994.

Chris Sabo reinforced two points in one game last night.First, he will not win a Gold Glove in the outfield in this or any season. Second, the Orioles are a better team with his bat at the top of the order than with it on the bench.The positive influence of Sabo's bat played a much bigger part than the harmful effects of his glove as the Orioles defeated the Minnesota Twins, 11-6, last night before a Camden Yards sellout crowd of 47,426, including NBC comedian Jerry Seinfeld.Sabo's two-run, seventh-inning single broke open a one-run game and provided more evidence of why the Orioles can live with Sabo's inexperience in the outfield in return for his productive bat in the No. 2 hole of the lineup.

The Orioles continued to chip away at their winter paperwork yesterday, finalizing one-year deals for catcher Chris Hoiles and minor-league pitcher Barry Manuel.Hoiles agreed to a contract that will pay him more than five times what he earned in 1993, accepting a base salary of $2 million (plus $160,000 in incentives) after a breakthrough season in which he hit 29 home runs and established himself as one of the top catchers."We asked some of our younger players to step up to the next level last year," said assistant general manager Doug Melvin.

MINNEAPOLIS -- It is a baseball dilemma that could pass for an Abbott and Costello routine."Who's on third?""Hulett.""Is that enough?""No, I said that's Hulett."Ha. But the question is legit. Is Tim Hulett, backup extraordinaire, sufficient at third for a team trying to win a division?The Orioles are trying to answer that as they sift through trade possibilities and wait fearfully for the annual mega-move by Toronto's Pat Gillick. (This year, Stan Musial?)For the Orioles, there are two questions to answer.

The first week was the hardest. "Sam was like a pack rat," Tim Hulett says. "He kept everything." So, when the Huletts returned home to Springfield, Ill., at the end of the Orioles' season, they couldn't help but find reminders of the little boy they lost.Baseball caps with Sammy's name littering the basement. His hockey stick lying on the floor. His bicycle standing in the garage. "You see that stuff around, and you have memories -- most of them good, some of them sad," Tim says. "But those are the things you don't want to get rid of -- the memories."

You're the manager. Here's the problem.You've got a badly slumping, ex-home-run-hitting designated hitter (with a slightly strained ligament in his neck) who's a black hole in the middle of your lineup.You've also got a badly slumping, ex-home-run-hitting shortstop who would have to get red-hot to make it to a black hole.What to do?If you're manager Johnny Oates, you bench the DH. Are you with me so far?And you move the shortstop, who hit his last homer sometime during the Truman administration, in the lineup, to the cleanup spot?

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- To the casual observer there appears to be a great deal of similarity between the Orioles this year and the near miraculous 1989 team.But to those who have been around during the transition periothere is almost no comparison. They point to three primary factors in the citing the difference.Experience. Depth. Talent.You can arrange the current assets in any order you want, buyou get the same message. The team that was a half-game out of first place before yesterday's games is clearly better.
