Angel pitcher Ron Romanick, who won only one of his last nine starts and did not get past the fifth inning in six of them, scored a significant victory Saturday. Arbitrator Tom Roberts ruled in favor of Romanick's request for a 1986 salary of $425,000. The Angels had filed a salary offer of $250,000. Romanick earned $146,500 in his second major league season, finishing with a 14-9 record and a 4.11 earned-run average.

Ron Romanick didn't remember his own prophecy. Seattle Mariner pitcher Bob Wolcott had to remind him. Three years ago, Romanick told a group of young pitchers that a day would come when they would use what he was teaching. They would be in the major leagues and need these little tidbits and techniques. They would seek him out and acknowledge this little chat. Romanick had forgotten that speech. Wolcott had not, and brought it up recently.

Right-hander Ron Romanick of the Angels underwent successful surgery Monday for the removal of a small spur in the back of his right ankle. Dr. Lewis Yocum performed the surgery at Centinela Hospital Medical Center in Inglewood, an Angel official said. Romanick, 24, will wear a splint and remain on crutches for approximately two weeks before further evaluation. Romanick was 14-9 with a 4.11 earned-run average in 31 starts this year.

When it comes to salary arbitration, Wally Joyner has led a charmed life. He will receive $2.1 million for 1991 after having played only half a season in 1990. He has never really carried his weight since his sophomore season in 1987 and yet he always wants more money. However, the charm may well be over by the end of the 1991 season, if not before.

The Edmonton Trappers faced a serious problem as they left for Canada this morning after completing a Pacific Coast League series with the Tucson Toros Wednesday night: You almost can't get there from here. The Trappers were scheduled to fly to Phoenix, then to Los Angeles, to Salt Lake City and finally on to Edmonton, a circuitous itinerary that many of the Trappers hope will be extended ultimately to include Anaheim, where the parent Angels play.

I mean seriously, Ron Romanick gets a 200% increase for winning one of his last nine starts in the heat of the pennant race. The Angels choke by a game. Romanick is a major part of that landmark choke. And yet, because of arbitration, they are forced to sign him at a ridiculous price of $425,000. Hey, Mike Port, trade this over-priced lunk to Pittsburgh! STEVE RUDDELL Anaheim

I've decided that Angel General Manager Mike Port must be taking employee relations courses from George Steinbrenner. Obviously, Ron Romanick was a struggling young pitcher this year. His performance made that clear. But for anyone who didn't notice, Port told reporters after each unsuccessful outing that Romanick's tenure with the club was increasingly shaky. It had to be great for a 24-year-old's confidence. What a guy to work for. Not only must Romanick's confidence be destroyed, but what does this say to every other player in the organization?

The Angels decided Tuesday that they had seen enough of Ron Romanick and his 5-8 record and assigned him to their Triple-A team in Edmonton. Rookie right-hander Ray Chadwick (9-9, 4.72 earned-run average for Edmonton) will replace Romanick in the Angel rotation and is expected to make his first start next Tuesday at Oakland. The decision to demote Romanick came one day after a 4-inning, five-run performance against the Milwaukee Brewers that raised his ERA to 5.

Gene Mauch was not in the mood for pleasant chatter. When the media arrived in the clubhouse after Sunday's game, the Angel manager was in his office, having a closed-door meeting with himself. When he opened his office to the press, his first comment was, "We've got to make five runs stand up more often." Trouble was, Kansas City already had a 6-0 lead Sunday before the Angels scratched out five runs and fell one short in a 6-5 loss before 53,659 at Anaheim Stadium.

Until Wednesday, no Angel pitcher had thrown a shutout since last Sept. 19, when John Candelaria blanked the Chicago White Sox. Wednesday was also the day Candelaria underwent elbow surgery that will sideline him for at least two months. The Angels won't be minting any commemorative coins, but they did mark the occasion in their own way. Ron Romanick threw another shutout, a two-hitter at that.

Ron Romanick had just beaten the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday afternoon, 8-4, for his 12th victory, second only to Ron Guidry's 13 in the American League. Romanick reached that position by limiting the Brewers to one earned run in six innings before a County Stadium crowd of 24,380, an outing that dropped his earned-run average to 2.94--sixth best in the league.

Friday did not proceed without a discouraging word for the Angels' pitching staff. John Candelaria, sent home for tests on his ailing left arm, discovered that his elbow problem has apparently taken a turn for the worse. But for once, there was some good news for the Angels to temper the bad. And these days, mixed reviews are about the best the Angels can hope for when the topic is pitching.

Success on the Angel pitching staff is measured in different terms this spring. One day, Don Sutton comes off the mound after six perfect innings and proclaims with a sigh: "At this stage, I just want to do my bit and come out healthy." The next day, Ron Romanick works six not-so-perfect innings, yielding nine hits and five runs--four in one inning. His fastball keeps floating high in the strike zone, which pleased the San Francisco Giant hitters and displeased Angel Manager Gene Mauch.
