With his back able to withstand the most critical test, Orioles third baseman Cal Ripken indicated yesterday that he could return to the lineup within the next two weeks. He's hoping the latest projection proves accurate. Ripken had expected to return from the disabled list about a week after the All-Star break, and again shortly after beginning some drills. His optimism yesterday stemmed from being able to run in the outfield before yesterday's game, and subjecting himself to the pounding, without experiencing any discomfort or restrictions.

At some point, four people sharing two double beds and one bathroom gets old. The maid service doesn't compensate for the stale muffins in the lobby and coffee you have to make on the desk.

Initial projections had Segui getting back on the field by Aug. 1, but it might not take that long. He has been hitting soft tosses in the indoor batting cage and making steady progress since the May 11 procedure.
