  • Palmeiro, Sosa taking divergent paths to Hall

    THE ORIOLES' LINEUP looks different these days. Rafael Palmeiro, his power stroke rediscovered, was penciled in at cleanup last night, before the rain and lightning made it a big night - for Camden Yards beer sales. For the second night in a row, Sammy Sosa was penciled in at No. 6. The career cleanup...

  • If Jeter, Torre were in charge, meeting would be more positive

    TOO BAD Captain Jeter isn't calling this Yankees organizational meeting. He's got the right agenda - and attitude. What's the point of yelling, screaming, firing or hiring when the problems of this $200 million/.500 "jugger-NOT" can't be solved just because the Boss thinks they should be? "I'd say...

  • Yankees arrive, but Red Sox are why O's can't stand pat

    THE CAT'S out of the bag, so let's see if the Birds get eaten alive by the cat. What are we talking about? We're not talking about the New York Yankees, who arrive in town today for a three-game series that's better billed as "Dawn of the Dead" than a showdown for dominance in the heavyweight division...

  • With Mora smoothing road, Tejada keeps motoring along

    A DEAD MAN, left lying in a field, shot twice: That's where life ended two years ago for Patrick Dennehy, the former Baylor University basketball player whose murder was the tragic centerpiece of the worst college sports scandal in history. And now this: a convicted man, Carlton Eric Dotson, sentenced...

  • Bigbie just can't miss with a good-luck charm

    IT WAS A LONG overdue season welcome to Charm City for Larry Bigbie. Or, more specifically, Good Luck Charm City. Bigbie, fresh off the disabled list after suffering through a (mostly) disappointing start, cranked his very first homer of 2005 last night. The bases-empty shot, in his first at-bat...

  • Bigbie just can't miss with a good-luck Buddha

    WHOEVER sent Larry Bigbie the green jade Buddha, please stand up. It worked. "There was no note. It just came in the mail," Bigbie said, reaching up to the top shelf of his locker last night. He pulled down the miniature statue, cradling the big-bellied talisman in the palm of his hand. "No offense...

  • Mazzilli's inaction raises arguable point about him

    BOSTON - Your first inclination when you see a pitcher like Steve Kline fail to cover first base on a grounder to first baseman Rafael Palmeiro is to shake your head and wonder how a veteran like Kline could commit such a flagrant act of brain lock. So we'll give manager Lee Mazzilli the right to...
