    This a little piece from a baseball article I read in the Boston Herald......


    The Baltimore Orioles had turned into one of the laughingstocks of major league baseball even before this season, but club officials were humiliated recently during a sports talk radio show in Baltimore.

    Or at least one member of the Orioles front office was.

    Prior to the winter meetings, O's general manager Syd Thrift was taking questions in studio when one caller asked him about Gary Dell'Abate, whom the caller identified as a prospect in the team's minor league system. Thrift gave a generally positive report on the youngster, but said club officials were unsure as to his long-term future.

    The problem?

    The call was a prank.

    Dell'Abate is actually a producer on ``The Howard Stern Show.''

    No wonder Baltimore's minor league system has been terrible in recent years.
