MINNEAPOLIS -- Right-hander Mike Mussina apparently will be held out of the Orioles' rotation until the team opens a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox on Friday at Camden Yards.Mussina, who was removed from Wednesday's game after five innings with a back strain, is "95 percent certain" to miss the two-game series in Toronto starting Tuesday night, manager Johnny Oates said."It's very unlikely that he'll pitch in Toronto," Oates said, "but it's not impossible."In Mussina's place, right-hander Rick Sutcliffe would take the mound in the series opener.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A side note to Daniel Cabrera's wild outing and Jonny Gomes' game-winning grand slam on Wednesday night was Kevin Millar's first two home runs as an Oriole. Millar said yesterday that the game's end result overrode his personal accomplishment, although his second home run, a bases-empty shot off Shawn Camp in the ninth inning, was particularly gratifying because he hit it to dead center field. With Boston last year, Millar admitted he became too pull conscious, playing home games with Fenway Park's Green Monster looming in left field.

LANDOVER -- By the time the Washington Bullets' locker room was opened last night, Juwan Howard was long gone. Rasheed Wallace and Calbert Cheaney also made quick exits. It seemed as if the team didn't want to discuss its fading playoff hopes, which, even with two months left in the season, grow more distant by the day.What last night's game against the Charlotte Hornets revealed was that the Bullets had failed to learn a lesson from Wednesday's game. Same foe, same 17-point lead, same result, as the Hornets beat the Bullets for the second time in three days, 100-94, before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at USAir Arena.

The ball went off the top of the wall for a double and Hocking left the game with a banged-up right knee.

But if looks could kill . . .Davey Johnson -- UP -- Did what he thought was best, didn't get defensive or angry when he was questioned about his decision. Confidence is a good thing.Manny Alexander -- EVEN -- Whether it's him or somebody else, replacing Ripken at short will carry its own unique pressure. He got a taste of that.Kent Mercker -- DOWN -- Headed to the bullpen.

When the Texas Rangers' 727 touched down in Baltimore Sunday night, most players went to the team hotel, the Renaissance Harborplace, downtown. But one of them, first baseman Mark Teixeira, went someplace else instead. He went home. Teixeira, 25, slept in his old bedroom in his parents' Severna Park home, surrounded by his Little League baseball trophies and his childhood dog, Mackenzie, a 14-year-old West Highland terrier. The neighbors brought over desserts. Teixeira ate meatball sandwiches for lunch.

Before he headed back to the North Pole, Santa Claus left something really nice in the Sacramento Kings' stocking. And, unlike an ugly tie or a stale fruitcake, this Christmas gift ought to have some lasting importance into the New Year. The Kings, who flamed out in last season's Western Conference finals against the Los Angeles Lakers, erased some of that hurt with a 105-99 win over their nemesis in Los Angeles on Christmas Day, perhaps serving notice that they are ready to push past the Lakers and into the NBA Finals.

Rather than wait until the final day to pitch in his 70th game, as he did last year, Orioles reliever Buddy Groom should achieve the milestone with room to spare. Groom and the Arizona Diamondbacks' Mike Myers share the major-league record of six consecutive seasons with 70 or more appearances. Groom, the Orioles' primary left-handed setup man, has reached 63 - putting him four ahead of Myers. Aware of the streak's importance to Groom, manager Mike Hargrove made sure to use him extensively over the final weeks of the 2001 season.

Orioles outfielder Chris Richard wasn't in the starting lineup last night against the Boston Red Sox after injuring his right shoulder while diving for a ball the previous night. A magnetic resonance imaging taken yesterday didn't reveal any structural damage, but he could miss the three-game series in Cleveland that begins tonight. "Right now he's day-to-day," said manager Mike Hargrove. Richard raced to the right-field line before making a futile attempt at a slicing liner from Boston's Chris Stynes in the eighth inning of the Red Sox's 3-0 victory.

WASHINGTON - In a season filled with misery and a recent dollop of controversy, the Washington Wizards will at least be able to end the millennium with this small bit of consolation: They aren't the worst team in the NBA. The Wizards closed the 2000 portion of the season with a 110-96 victory over the Detroit Pistons last night before an announced crowd of 13,132 at MCI Center that more closely resembled an intimate gathering of family and friends....

NEW YORK -- While dismissing the possibility of going on the disabled list, outfielder Eric Davis admitted he's not sure when he'll be ready to play again after getting hit on the right elbow during Wednesday's game against the New York Mets.Davis was hit by Mets pitcher Rick Reed in the first inning and left the game in the fourth. X-rays showed only a bruise, but it's in the same location where Davis has been bothered much of the year by inflammation caused by bone chips."It was throbbing pretty good this morning," Davis said.

Looking to change both his image and his luck, Orioles utility man Ozzie Guillen has decided to stop wearing his socks pulled up in the old-fashioned style that had become his trademark.Guillen liked the look, in part, because it exposed the bottom of his right knee brace, reminding him of the effort he put forth to return from torn ligaments that ended his 1992 season after 12 games.Why the switch?"That was the White Sox image," Guillen, who remains bitter about being unwanted in Chicago after 13 seasons, said yesterday.
