Jaime Jarrin led a friend toward a quiet corner in the press box at Anaheim's Edison International Field, leaned against a wall and heaved a sigh. Here in the shadows, he figured, away from the excitement of last Friday's Dodger-Angel exhibition game going on below, he could enjoy a few minutes of peace and quiet. But still they found him.

The Angels reached into the minor leagues for two new radio announcers, hiring Brian Barnhart for English broadcasts and Ivan Lara for Spanish broadcasts. Barnhart, 33, joins Mario Impemba on KRLA (1110 AM). Barnhart, currently the host of a sports talk show in Oklahoma City, did play-by-play for the Triple-A Oklahoma City 89ers from 1988-94. "I'm just thrilled," Barnhart said Tuesday. "This gives me the job I've always dreamed of."

Although many sports broadcasters--and sportswriters, for that matter--grow up hoping to play the games they eventually wind up describing, Ivan Lara had his eyes focused on the press box from the start. As a youngster growing up in Ciudad Obregon, in the Mexican state of Sonora--where baseball, not soccer, is the local passion--he remembers listening to storied broadcaster Alfonso Araujo Bojorquez paint a word picture of games in Mexico's Pacific League.

Angel pitcher Allen Watson dropped 15 pounds over the winter but his wallet was fattened considerably Tuesday. Watson and the Angels avoided arbitration when they agreed to a one-year, $2.9-million contract, a raise of $1.7 million over 1997, when he went 12-12 with a 4.93 earned-run average and led the major leagues in home runs allowed with 37. Watson, 27, had asked for $3.375 million in arbitration, and the Angels countered with $2.3 million.

The Angels extended another hand to the Latino community Tuesday, announcing an agreement to air six games on Spanish-language television station KVEA (Channel 52). The team's Latino marketing initiative, started last year, takes two steps forward this weekend. On Friday, the Angels and KVEA present the first Spanish telecast in franchise history, an exhibition game against the Dodgers.

The Walt Disney Co. and the Angels are apparently combining their vast resources in an attempt to sign free-agent pitcher Orlando Hernandez, the Cuban exile who is the older half-brother of 1997 World Series MVP Livan Hernandez. Joe Cubas, Hernandez's agent, said he had a three-hour meeting with Angel front-office executives in Arizona on Friday, and among the issues discussed were a potential three-year baseball contract and a Disney deal for movie rights to Hernandez's life story.

The Anaheim City Council appears to be strongly considering an appeal of the city's defeat in its lawsuit against the Angels, raising the possibility that the fight over the team's name could return to court during the season. The city is believed to be willing to forgo an appeal if the Angels are willing to forgo the chance to recoup their legal costs.

General Manager Bill Stoneman was surprised to learn Tuesday that Orlando Cabrera played 15 to 20 games in Colombia this winter -- without the Angels' permission -- and relieved to learn the shortstop did not get hurt. The Angels are a little more sensitive to these matters since Juan Rivera broke his leg playing in Venezuela in December. Unlike Rivera, who did not get enough at-bats last season for the Angels to block him from winter ball, Stoneman said he did block Cabrera from playing.

In 21st-century America, where major leaguers are not only athletes but wealthy celebrities, managers and coaches aren't the only ones preparing players for the season.
