Tim Leary wasn't talking yesterday, which figures, because, first of all, what was he going to say, and, secondly, it's not polite to talk with your mouth full.Especially when it's full of sandpaper, meaning, of course, that Leary could bite and file his nails simultaneously.You've heard of a scratchy throat? Leary had a scratchy tongue, teeth and epiglottis Sunday. No wonder. A national ESPN audience saw him stick a wad of sandpaper -- did it come with baseball cards? -- into his mouth to avoid being searched by an umpire.

Declining baseball valuesReferring to Peter Schmuck's column on Tim Leary (June 28) and Monday's comments from AL boss Bobby Brown, thebottom line is that Leary cheated. Using words such as "allegedly," "suspicious" and "if Leary was cheating" (as Schmuck used twice in his column) is ludicrous. Telling it like it is (as an entire nation saw the game) shouldn't be libel. By his own actions, Leary defamed his character.The country's pastime, its ruling body and reportage are indicative of America itself: no responsibility or penalty given for one's actions.

It was an acute case of indigestion, suffered right there on the pitching mound. That's when Tim Leary tried to relieve the nausea. He had apparently swallowed a piece of slippery elm. Maybe it was emery board. Or possibly sandpaper.Certainly a saliva test was needed. But this was a baseball game, not the backstretch at Pimlico. It should have been determined then and there if Leary had any of the above foreign substances secreted in his mouth.From all appearances, it seemed when the umpires went for an inquisition in the fifth inning of last night's game that the New York Yankees pitcher slipped something into his mouth while obscuring whatever it was he was doing with his glove.

Mike Devereaux and Chris Hoiles underwent successful surgery yesterday, and both are expected to be ready for the start of spring training in February, Orioles vice president and general manager Roland Hemond said.Both players had surgery at Children's Hospital. Dr. Charles Silberstein stabilized the ulna bone fragment in Hoiles' right wrist. The wrist was fractured June 21, when Hoiles was hit by a pitch from Tim Leary of the New York Yankees. Hoiles' wrist will be in a cast for six weeks, and he will then begin an extensive rehabilitation program.

Good instincts led ESPN to nail a shot of New York Yankees Tim Leary apparently sneaking something into his mouth Sunday night.As Orioles manager John Oates came out to complain about a scuffed ball in the bottom of the fifth, Scott Maynard, who was manning the high-third base camera at Camden Yards, heard play-by-play man Jon Miller surmise that Oates thought Leary was scuffing the ball. He immediately zoomed in on the Yankees pitcher.Producer Bruce Connal and director Marc Payton saw the shot on the replay monitor in the production truck.

Gregg Olson finally got to be a starting pitcher. The All-Star reliever was the last-minute replacement for Ben McDonald in yesterday's 5-4 loss to Montreal at West Palm Beach.Two years ago, when he first came to camp with the Orioles, there was some sentiment to make Olson a starter, a notion that has long since been forgotten.However, manager Frank Robinson had said he might start his late reliever in an exhibition game just to make sure he faced the opposition's best lineup. "A lot of times they come into the game late just because that's when they usually pitch and all of the regulars are out of the lineup," said Robinson.

Since his return to the Orioles' public address microphone after an absence of almost six weeks, Rex Barney has received hundreds of notes, cards and letters.One of the most personal -- and humorous -- came from American League president Bobby Brown."I was sorry to hear about your surgery, but I'm glad to hear you're doing OK," Brown said in a handwritten message."I'll be anxious to visit with you, but I don't think the O's will have a 'welcome mat' out for me after the [Tim] Leary incident," wrote Brown, in reference to his rejection of the Orioles' protest of Leary's allegedly throwing scuffed balls.
