The New York media had more fun at the Orioles' expense yesterday in the wake of Tuesday night's brawl with the Yankees and the Orioles' terrible slump. A few samplings:Former Sun writer Buster Olney, New York Times: "Not running )) out ground balls and fly balls is something the Orioles are doing very well these days. Making bad decisions is something the Orioles are doing very well these days. If it could be said that Baltimore is out of contention for the AL East title, that the Orioles are dead, then everybody at Yankee Stadium was having a good time dancing on their grave."

WASHINGTON -- A lot of romanticism is being spread around over the latest circus involving the New York Post, wherein a real-estate operator with no interest in journalism grabbed the tabloid in bankruptcy court and fired a large chunk of the editorial staff, whereupon the deposed staffers in effect seized the paper.It is, to be sure, a helluva story made all the juicier by the rebellious staff turning out a first issue lambasting the new prospective owner from Page One to the want ads. Even the lofty New York Times, which is to the New York Post what caviar is to a hot dog, has waxed positively poetic about the development, quoting Dylan Thomas in commending the rebels for their determination to "rage, rage, against the dying of the light."

NEW YORK -- The New York Post, which was supposed to be sold to real estate developer Abraham Hirschfeld last Friday, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection yesterday.Attorneys for Peter Kalikow, the paper's current owner, who is involved in personal bankruptcy proceedings, said the newspaper took the action, with Mr. Hirschfeld's consent, to prevent spurned bidder Steven Hoffenberg from interfering with the paper's operations.The 192-year-old newspaper, founded by Alexander Hamilton, didn't publish yesterday because of a near-revolt by its staff, prompted by Sunday's announcement that Mr. Hirschfeld planned to fire 272 workers.
