Of all the lessons learned by Cal Ripken, perhaps none was tougher than what came in 1986. That's the year Ripken learned to lose. The Orioles finished last in the American League East, 22 games out of first place. It was the first time since 1967 that they ended a season below .500. Eddie Murray asked for a trade after owner Edward Bennett Williams told the media Murray was "doing nothing." Players noted that Earl Weaver, lured out of retirement by Williams to manage the club the previous season, lacked the fire he once possessed.

Athletics: Oakland has scored first in all of the first seven games on its current road trip. The game was Oakland's last in Tiger Stadium, where the A's went 371-530.Blue Jays: Tony Fernandez was honored before the game for becoming the career hits leader among Dominican-born players. He received a $5,000 check for the Tony Fernandez Foundation, which provides clothing and supplies to those affected by Hurricane Georges. Manager Jim Fregosi said Chris Carpenter, on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation, will likely make a rehab start tomorrow with Single-A St. Catharines.

Quote: "When a guy's hitting .400 it's hard to give him a day off, but I don't want to wear him out."-- Jim Fregosi, Blue Jays manager, who said he would rest Tony Fernandez (.409 average) today.It's a fact: The Royals' bullpen is chasing history after blowing 13 of the club's first 24 save opportunities. No team has ever finished a full season with more blown saves than saves.Who's hot: Since being recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket, Red Sox right-handers Jin Ho Cho, Brian Rose and Juan Pena are 7-0 with a 2.11 ERA in 11 starts.

Tony Fernandez remembers boyhood trips from his rowhouse on 25th Street in Baltimore to the lush waters of the Eastern Shore. There was seaweed then, which disappeared with the years and the filth. But a name was born out of the disappearance."Captain Seaweed!"This little kindergarten boy utters the cry the other day, his arms wide open and his voice rising a delighted octave above falsetto. love you."And the captain, once known as Tony Fernandez, a man who hit people very hard for a living, bends down and becomes the gentlest of characters, Captain Seaweed.

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- The 89th winter meetings were on the way to becoming little more than a free-agent festival when the San Diego Padres and Toronto Blue Jays proved yesterday that the art of the deal was not a lost art, after all.The wild free-agent bidding paused just long enough for those teams to announce one of the biggest deals of the past decade. The Padres sent outfielder Joe Carter and All-Star second baseman Roberto Alomar to the Blue Jays for 1989 home-run champion Fred McGriff and four-time Gold Glove shortstop Tony Fernandez.

NEW YORK -- At last, the Mets' co-owners have used the dreaded word that is baseball's synonym for surrender. The word is rebuild."We're here," Fred Wilpon was saying Tuesday as Nelson Doubleday stood next to him, "to rebuild a championship team."It's a start. In their best sincere suits, the co-owners were behind a microphone in the Diamond Club at Shea Stadium, announcing Al Harazin's resignation as chief operating officer, executive vice president and general manager, while acknowledging that Joe McIlvaine is their choice to take over the reconstruction of this fallen franchise.

Don't say you weren't warned. Second baseman Roberto Alomar is having the season of his life in Cleveland, which should come as no surprise to anyone who watched his numbers wane in Toronto, rebound in Baltimore and decline again until he found a new home.He'll tell you that he was never really healthy the final two years of his contract with the Orioles, and there is some truth to that. But it doesn't really change anything.The sad fact of the matter is this: Alomar can play about as well as he wants, and he wants to play well this year because he's in a new town and he's been reunited with his brother, Sandy.

MIAMI -- As the Florida Marlins and 67,000 fans danced and shouted, the Cleveland Indians trudged off the field and into baseball infamy.The infamy of the near-miss.Cleveland became the fourth team to come within three outs of winning the World Series -- and let it slip away."It's like grabbing mercury," Indians manager Mike Hargrove said. "You grab for it, and it squishes out of your hand."Cleveland led 2-1 in the ninth inning of Sunday night's Game 7. Closer Jose Mesa allowed a leadoff single, a one-out single and a one-out sacrifice fly. Florida won it all in the 11th, 3-2, when Edgar Renteria's two-out, bases-loaded single appeared to deflect off pitcher Charles Nagy's upraised glove into center field to bring home an unearned run.The music blared and the fireworks exploded and the Marlins began running all over the field with arms upraised.

Keys to the game1 Benitez gives it up: Just when it looked as if the Orioles were halfway to the World Series, reliever Armando Benitez surrendered a three-run home run to Marquis Grissom in the eighth inning to breathe life back into the Cleveland Indians. The home run was the first hit given up in four innings of work by the Orioles' bullpen, but it was enough to even the series at a game apiece.2 Key labors: Left-hander Jimmy Key was all over the place in the first inning. He gave up two runs, both on a home run by Manny Ramirez, and set a postseason record by hitting three batters -- Omar Vizquel, David Justice and Tony Fernandez -- in one inning.

The pairing of greatness is nothing new in this culture, but that hardly dulls the fascination for it. Fred Astaire danced alongside Gene Kelly, Paul Newman rode with Robert Redford, and Batman and Superman fought criminals together on Saturday mornings. What possibilities, with such talents merged.Greatness comes together at Camden Yards this season. Cal Ripken, baseball's pre-eminent icon for his consecutive-games streak, will play with Roberto Alomar, an original in this sport because of the graceful and imaginative manner in which he plays defense.
