Rafael Palmeiro can't believe that Mo Vaughn would leave Boston. But it's going to happen, and Palmeiro could be the beneficiary if the Orioles don't re-sign him soon.Why delay this any longer? The Orioles won't trade Palmeiro or Roberto Alomar. They still figure to lose Alomar to free agency. To remain competitive, it's absolutely imperative that they keep Palmeiro.Think about it: They're likely to get subpar offense at shortstop and third base in 1999, and maybe in center field if Brady Anderson doesn't return to form.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Want to have some fun with Wally Joyner?Go up to him and say, "Well, sure you're hitting .370 now. It's your last season before free agency."Then duck."I really get upset," Joyner said, "when people say stuff like that. 'Of course he's doing good this year. It's his salary drive.'"I mean, it's amazing how many people think you can just turn it on and off. Gary Gaetti was a free agent last year, but that wasn't one of his better years."It's not that Joyner, the California Angels' most popular player (in terms of fan mail, merchandising and fan support)

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The California Angels pulled off a major trade last night, but they may have further alienated a dwindling fan following when they sent popular left-hander Jim Abbott to the New York Yankees for three of that club's top young prospects.The deal added promising pitchers Jerry Nielsen and Russ Springer and first baseman J. T. Snow to a rebuilding Angels club that recently lost outfielder Junior Felix and relief stopper Bryan Harvey in the November expansion draft.It makes perfect sense for an organization that is starting froscratch, but it probably won't make sense to fans of one of the most inspiring players in the history of the game.

Here's all you need to know about the 1996 Kansas City Royals offense: Johnny Damon, who batted leadoff in his inaugural season of 1995, is expected to bat third in the order this season.Damon, 22, has 47 games of major-league experience. And he is known for speed and hitting for average. He has little power.But this is not a typical lineup. Damon's legs fit in with the rest of the speedsters on this club. These Royals expect to go-go-go and pressure teams with speed, not frighten them with power.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Pitcher Mike Mussina confirmed yesterday that he has been offered a three-year contract by the Orioles."It was something to work from," said Mussina, one of four Orioles eligible for salary arbitration. The others are pitcher Ben McDonald, second baseman Bret Barberie and third baseman Leo Gomez.The Orioles first contacted Mussina's agent, Arn Tellem, about three weeks ago. But there was little immediate discussion, as Orioles general manager Roland Hemond tried to complete his roster, signing Kevin Bass and Andy Van Slyke.

BASEBALL CITY, Fla. -- Having once replaced Hall of Famer Rod Carew in the California Angels' lineup, Wally Joyner has now displaced future Hall of Famer George Brett in the batting order of the Kansas City Royals.The first baseman will bat third in the revamped lineup, with Brett, approaching 39 after being a fixture at No. 3 for most of his 18 years with the Royals, dropping to fifth. Demoted, Brett called it, adding:"No one likes to lose their position, but it's not like I'm losing it to a guy from Double-A.

Last season, the Braves set a major-league record for wins in April with 19 in 25 games.Dodgers: General manager Fred Claire left last night's game during the middle innings because he was ill, a team spokesman said. Derrick Hall would not say whether the 62-year-old executive had been hospitalized, but said it wasn't serious.

For a guy who has been tagged with the potential label for longer than he'd like, Ben McDonald pitched his way into some fancy company last night.In what may have been the best performance in the brief history of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, McDonald threw a brilliant one-hitter as the Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals, 7-0. A fourth-inning single by Gary Gaetti was the only blemish against McDonald, who has won his past three starts.McDonald also got a bonus for his effort. He had the distinction of pitching the Orioles into first place for the first time since June 19, 1992.
