Within the first few moments of Alicia Keys' new album, "Girl on Fire," it's clear that this artist once labeled the new queen of Soul is now emulating the confidence needed to fulfill that role. "It's been a while, I'm not who I was before / You looked surprised, your words don't burn me anymore," she sings in "Brand New Me" over her trademark R&B piano playing. "Been meaning to tell you, but I guess it's clear to see / Don't be mad, it's just the brand new kind of me. " "There is no mystery … it's severely honest.

One of the more important things to know about Jeff Robinson is who he is not. He is not the former Troy High School star. He is not the former Cal State Fullerton star. He has never pitched for the San Francisco Giants, and he does not pitch for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Which leads to a question. Who is he? Ask the Angels, who lost to him Saturday for the third time this season.

The bases were clogged Friday night, and for the third time this season in that same bind, the call to the Angel bullpen was for Jeff Robinson. In a rare lapse, Chuck Finley, the Angels' ace, already had walked in what would prove to be the winning run. But the damage stopped there. Robinson, seemingly oblivious to the tension, got Toronto pinch-hitter Mookie Wilson to ground to second, and the inning was over.

Jeff Robinson has spent his career on the move since he left Cal State Fullerton. And too often, he's been one stop ahead of victory, which pulls into the station he's just left with alarming regularity. His first major league team was the San Francisco Giants, who traded him to Pittsburgh in the heat of the 1987 pennant race. "It was late August, and we were in first place," said Robinson, a pitcher drafted by the Giants in the second round in 1983.

Soon after last year's football recruiting was completed at USC, and after assessing the talent he had inherited from Larry Smith as he embarked on his second tour of duty at the school, Coach John Robinson told his staff: "We need to have a top-five recruiting class next year." The hard work began at the top. Robinson hit the road for a week in May, highly unusual for a head coach, so he could evaluate some of the top junior prospects in the state.

Two former Cal State Fullerton baseball players currently playing in the major leagues have made significant contributions to the school's $6.3 million fund-raising campaign.

The Angels said Thursday that they had bought out the option of right-hander Jeff Robinson, who was 0-3 with a 5.37 earned-run average in 39 relief appearances last season. Had they not bought him out for $100,000, he would have earned $1.25 million in 1992. The Angels also released infielder Kent Anderson and catcher Barry Lyons. Anderson spent last season in triple-A Edmonton and Lyons, who was signed last spring after the Dodgers had released him, played in two games after his Sept.

Baltimore pitcher Jeff Robinson sat on the Orioles' bench in the eighth inning Tuesday, a towel pressed against his face. He has had his bad outings this season, some of them very bad. But this hadn't been one of them. This had been one of his best. Statistically, it was his best of the season. Minutes earlier, he had a two-hitter against the Angels in the eighth inning, and a 1-0 lead. He left Anaheim Stadium with a loss, as the Angels rallied for a 2-1 victory. Two hits, and a loss.

Roger Clemens, booed during introductions on opening day for remarks he made about Boston last winter, wasted little time in swaying his critics in his 1989 Fenway Park debut Thursday. Clemens allowed three singles and struck out eight through seven innings as the Boston Red Sox routed the Cleveland Indians, 9-1. The fans cheered the right-hander when he struck out Brook Jacoby with the bases loaded in the second inning for his 1,000th career strikeout. "I have no control over what people do," Clemens said of the fans' reaction.
