Presenting another column in the same week when I was hit with the sports media notes franchise tag, which works out to be enough to pay for just basic cable - no Cathouse on HBO! - for about six months: * Talkers magazine, a radio trade publication, ranked the top 250 talk show hosts in the country. Jim Rome, whose long pauses and almost incomprehensible self-references are heard locally on Fox Sports 1370, was the highest-rated of the sports variety at No. 29. No Baltimore sports types made the list.

By his own admission, David Traber was the weak link in the finals of the Greater Baltimore Open yesterday at the Country Club Lanes. His four opponents had a combined total of 33 PBA tour championships to his one."That was one of the strongest [television] shows I've ever seen," said Traber. "The way I looked at it, I was the weakest player out there."Not that I'm not capable, but it's nothing compared to what those guys have accomplished," said Traber. He made his assessment minutes after seizing a needed opportunity to beat No. 1 seed Eric Forkel, 217-214, in the championship game.

Former Orioles Jim Traber and Mickey Tettleton had just picked up their sons from football camp when the details of Jason Grimsley's affidavit on drugs in baseball crackled over the car radio. As they listened to Grimsley's description of leaded (laced with amphetamines) and unleaded (regular) coffee in major league clubhouses, the old teammates laughed and laughed. "That was giving away a secret of the clubhouse," said Traber, who played parts of four seasons for the Orioles. "But yeah, I knew about it."

Let David Segui, Randy Milligan and Glenn Davis worry about who's on first for the Orioles. Jim Traber no longer can be bothered with such a trivial pursuit.Not long ago, Traber spouted his opinions daily to former Orioles manager Frank Robinson. Now he performs the same act as a radio talk-show host for all-sports WWLS in Oklahoma City.It's Radio Free Whammer.Monday to Friday.From 1 to 4 p.m."I can believe that," Robinson says. "A talk show, huh? That's right down his alley."Traber, of course, still harbors a mild grudge against the Orioles -- "to this day," he insists, "I still say I wasn't given a fair chance."

It's beginning to look as if the opening of Oriole Park at Camden Yards could be as much of a reunion as a happening.The exhibition game against the New York Mets will be Eddie Murray's first appearance in uniform in Baltimore since he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Dec. 4, 1988.And the official opening against the Cleveland Indians three days later likely will feature the return of "The Whammer."Jim Traber, a left-handed hitter who got his first extended major-league exposure because of an injury to Murray in 1986, has a chance to win a Cleveland roster spot because of injuries to Reggie Jefferson, a prospect obtained from the Cincinnati Reds last year, and rookie Jim Thome.

YEARS AGO, an old-timer at this newspaper advised a rookie reporter (we were never "cubs") who was feeling down after making an unintentional error, "Just learn from it. Think of it this way: People are reading you." Y'all certainly were reading last week - thank you, and apologies for messing up out of innocence, ignorance or imprecise sources but not intentionally. Whatever, here's sharing what you've taught since we wrote last Sunday that only three sons of Howard County had made it to baseball's major leagues: The real number is more likely seven ... probably ... unless you know of even more.

For a game to be won on the final possession is not new when UMBC and Towson University get together in women's lacrosse. A game-winning goal with one second left, though? That's indeed special. UMBC junior midfielder Lauren Traber provided it yesterday, a shovel shot with her back to the goal after a defender appeared to have her sealed off. The goal, her first of the game but 18th this season, gave the Retrievers a character-building, 12-11 win over the Tigers in 90-degree-plus heat at UMBC Stadium.

Both coaches were in agreement about last night's Hammond vs. Wilde Lake basketball game -- the last game for both teams until Jan. 26 because the county doesn't allow games during exam week. Winning Hammond coach Mark Murray called it "a very ugly game." Losing Wilde Lake coach Phil Chenier called it "kind of an ugly game." Neither coach was overly pleased with his team's performance in the Bears' 41-36 victory. It wasn't hard to understand why. Hammond shot 31 percent (14-for-45) from the field, while visiting Wilde Lake was 13-for-44 (30 percent)

Sax will be the fifth player the Yankees have tried at third base this season. Mike Blowers, Jim Leyritz, Randy Velarde and Torey Lovullo were all given a shot with no success.* ANGELS: California president Richard Brown said the club is having "very cordial and very productive" talks with Fernando Valenzuela's agents, but Brown declined to assess the likelihood of the Angels' signing the former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher.
