Seth Etherton has been a rousing success for the Angels, taking a 4-1 record and 4.46 earned-run average into tonight's start against the Rangers. Wonder how much better the rookie right-hander would be if he were throwing his best pitch. In a year and a half in the minor leagues and for most of his career at USC, Etherton's out pitch was a palmball, which acts like a slow forkball because of the way it dives as it approaches the plate.

The Angels' answer to the Texas Rangers' signing of Alex Rodriguez for $252 million is to sign Ismael Valdes for $2.5 million (one one-hundredth of the cost). Unfortunately, there are no awards for the most prudent shopper and evidently the Angels haven't heard the expression, "You get what you pay for!" Gosh, if the Angels covet ineffective Dodger pitchers, they could probably get Carlos Perez for a song! J. SCOTT SCHEFFER Victorville Just when I'm about to accuse the Angels of doing nothing this off-season, they go and sign Ismael Valdes.

Less than two years removed from his final season at USC, pitcher Seth Etherton will make his major league debut Friday night when he starts for the Angels against the Kansas City Royals in Kauffman Stadium. The Angels didn't officially announce Etherton's promotion from triple A, but the right-hander traveled from Edmonton to Minneapolis on Wednesday and will join the team today.

The options were clear for pitcher Seth Etherton, the Angels' first-round pick (18th overall) in the June draft. He could sign by July 1 and pitch two months for double-A Midland or let negotiations drag into the summer, sign in August or September and play in the fall instructional league. Etherton chose to play right away, agreeing to terms Wednesday on a 1998 contract that includes a $1.075-million signing bonus and tuition money to complete his education at USC.

Leonard Guttierez hit a bases-loaded triple and drove in three runs during a nine-run first inning and the Southern California Cardinals held on for a 9-8 victory over Texas Wednesday in the championship game of the Mickey Mantle Division of the American Amateur Baseball Congress tournament at Waterbury, Conn. The Cardinals, who are based Norwalk and include a number of Orange County players, have won four consecutive division titles.

Why simply bid a friend a quiet farewell when you can throw him a big party with thousands of guests? Seth Etherton headed back to the minor leagues, but he went out with a bang. With 30,254 on hand for the Big Bang Friday fireworks show at Edison Field, Etherton's Angel teammates rewarded him with four big bangs of their own in an 8-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins. "There's no doubt in anyone's mind he can pitch up here," Angel Manager Mike Scioscia said. "He'll be back."

Memo to Bill Bavasi, general manager, Anaheim Angels: When you selected Seth Etherton as your No. 1 pick in the draft, you got his arm, but you also got his head. The head might be more important. On Thursday, Etherton used the research he gleaned from being pounded by Louisiana State five days earlier to pitch USC to a 5-4 victory over LSU and set up a rematch today to determine Arizona State's opponent for the College World Series championship.

Word came as both vindication and distraction in Omaha, as a relief in Houston, as a foregone conclusion in Long Beach. In St. Paul, Minn., it was hard to say. Being chosen in the first round of the amateur baseball draft takes on all sorts of meaning these days. A lucrative signing bonus awaits, but often not until an excruciating summer of hardball negotiations during which no pitch is thrown, no swing taken.

Teams in contention near the All-Star break don't concern themselves with other teams in their division until late July or August, when scoreboard-watching begins to intensify, but it's hard to ignore what's going on up the coast from Anaheim.

Seth Etherton knows how much $75,000 is worth, or more properly, what it's not worth. It won't buy an 88-mph fastball, and it won't buy a degree in business marketing from USC. It won't buy a senior year, and all that goes with it. It wouldn't buy his right arm for the St. Louis Cardinals, who made him their ninth-round pick in the 1997 free-agent draft. Instead, that offer served as a springboard into the weight room, into the health-food store and then onto the beach.
