Former Baltimore manager Johnny Oates was hired yesterday to manage the Texas Rangers, reuniting him with another former Orioles employee. Oates was given a two-year contract; financial terms were not disclosed. He will replace Kevin Kennedy, who was fired by general manager Doug Melvin last week and then beat out Oates for the Boston job. Melvin and Oates worked together in the Orioles' organization. Oates, 48, became the fourth Rangers manager in 29 months and the 14th full-time manager of the club.

First-year Orioles manager Phil Regan, an All-Star pitcher with the pennant-winning 1966 Dodgers, arrived at his Camden Yards office yesterday to find an old Los Angeles hat inside a box, and this conscience-clearing letter from a Phillies fan, dated Feb. 27, 1995: "Dear Phil, "I forget if it was '65 or '66, but a friend and I went to Connie Mack Stadium to see the Phillies play the Dodgers in a doubleheader on the last day of the...

Earl Weaver kicked enough dirt on umpires in 17 years of managing to bury some of them. His analytical mind and game-situation concentration remain the standard by which other managers are judged. But yesterday, Earl didn't manage very well. He was on the ninth green of The Grand Palms Golf Course when his wife rolled up the path on a golf cart with the news of his Hall of Fame election. Immediately, his game went south. "The minute I heard the news, my knees got weak, my hands got weak," the former Orioles manager said.

The key to winning a Triple Crown, says Frank Robinson, who won one in 1966 with the Baltimore Orioles, is to have fun. Being involved in a pennant race doesn't hurt, either. "I never felt the pressure until the very end because we were fighting for a pennant," said Robinson, now Baltimore's assistant general manager, who hit .316 with 49 homers and 122 RBI for the pennant-winning Orioles in '66. "I had no time to think about individual accomplishments. That helped me. "I knew I had two-thirds of it, the home run and RBI titles, pretty much wrapped up the last month of the season.

Get the rules straight, son Baltimore's Jake Fox has been very publicly called out for violating baseball's sacred Unwritten Rulebook, which would be no big deal, except that the loudest voice belonged to his own manager. According to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles catcher ticked off both the Detroit Tigers and O's manager Buck Showalter on Monday. His crime? Swinging at a 3-0 pitch with no outs and two runners in scoring position in the eighth inning with Baltimore leading, 13-3.

Johnny Oates knows pitching and defense. His new team, the Texas Rangers, doesn't. "I think Texas is very close to being a winner," Oates said yesterday after being hired as manager and signing a two-year contract. "I know I was certainly intimidated at times by their offense. But there is more to baseball than just offense. " Oates, fired as manager of the Baltimore Orioles in September, replaces Kevin Kennedy, who was fired by new general manager Doug Melvin last week. Kennedy then beat out Oates for the Boston Red Sox manager's job. Melvin replaced Tom Grieve, who transformed the Rangers into a power- hitting team that was last in the major leagues in defense.

You could sense it when Sandy Alomar's long fly ball fell into Row 1 in right field to tie Game 4; when Omar Vizquel's ground ball won that same game by taking a left turn at the intersection of fate and Ramiro Mendoza's glove; and when Jim Thome tossed a hard Game 5 strike to second from his belly. The Indians, the friendlier, feel-good Cleveland Indians, free from the burden of expectations as great as their talent, appear to be the team destiny has struck with its postseason dart in '97. A year after baseball's best record won them nothing but first-round playoff elimination, these Indians flourished as relaxed underdogs against the Yankees in the intriguing five-game division series they won Monday night.

The first son always has it tough. Especially when he's named after the dad. The first son has to do it like dad, be more like dad, act bigger and older before he really is bigger and older. "Sandy is more intense than Robby," Sandy Alomar Sr. was saying last night about his eldest son, Sandy Jr., 31, older brother of 29-year-old Roberto, second baseman for the Baltimore Orioles. Sandy Jr. catapulted the Cleveland Indians to an 8-7 victory last night and a 3-1 lead in the American League Championship Series over the Orioles and brother Roberto.

It's an hour or so before the exhibition game is to commence. The Gold Coast Suns are limbering up in the outfield. The St. Lucie Legends are just arriving. The distance signs on the outfield walls of Pompano Beach Municipal Stadium are being given a fresh coat of white paint. The dugouts look like something one might encounter at a forgettable summer camp. A few fans, a very few, drift into the ballpark. And there is Earl Weaver, the Earl of Baltimore, holding court.

They buried the managing career of Cal Ripken Sr. on a cold, damp Maryland night, serenading his departure with a display just as desultory as the six games that had preceded it. The Baltimore Orioles yesterday renewed the managerial career of Frank Robinson, the first black manager in the major leagues since he was fired by San Francisco in 1984. And never has it been so clear the depths to which this once-proud franchise has plummeted. The Orioles then lost another game, setting their record at 0-7, their worst start ever.

CSI: Citizens Bank Park is on the case. All the best forensic techniques have been utilized to determine why, with two months remaining in the regular season, a Phillies team coming off five straight division titles needs a minor miracle to avoid having the rest of its schedule consist of dog days followed by E-A-G-L-E-S!, playing out the string and wait until next year. Some of the clues are obvious. Ryan Howard and Chase Utley were on the disabled list for most of the first half of the season.

THIRTY-FIVE years ago, the closest thing to advanced mathematical analysis in baseball was Orioles manager Earl Weaver's stack of 3-by-5 cards that recorded how his hitters had fared against various pitchers and vice-versa. Still, new Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda knew a few things. One was that Los Angeles had missed the playoffs the previous year. One was that first baseman Steve Garvey hit for a high average (.317 in 1976) but had so-so production (13 homers and 80 RBI) at best.

The Baltimore Orioles plan to announce the hiring of Davey Johnson as their new manager today during a news conference at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The Washington Post quoted sources as saying that Johnson has agreed to a three-year contract worth approximately $1.7 million. Johnson, 52, who played with the Orioles between 1965 and 1972 and appeared in four World Series, has a .576 winning percentage, the best among active major-league managers with at least 500 games. He was let go earlier this month as manager of the Cincinnati Reds.

The Baltimore Orioles, who entered the season with pennant aspirations but finished below .500, fired manager Phil Regan and announced the resignation of general manager Roland Hemond yesterday. The firing of Regan, who led the Orioles to a 71-73 record in his first year as a major-league manager, paves the way for the hiring of former Orioles player Davey Johnson. Johnson, who guided the Cincinnati Reds to the NL Central title this year, interviewed for the Baltimore opening last season.
