Champs OAKLAND (UPI)—Concern over the painful wrist of Slugger Boog Powell was the only cloud on the horizon for Baltimore's American League champion Orioles today while they waited for the start of the World Series in Baltimore Saturday. "Maybe the three days rest will help Boog," said Orioles manager Earl Weaver, who disclosed that Powell "almost passed out" at one point during the Orioles' 5-3 victory over Oakland Tuesday that completed a three-game sweep of the American League playoffs for the third straight year. The romp over the A's certainly produced no other problems for Weaver, a_nd the doughty little manager indicated he doesn't worry much about whether the Giants or the Pirates eventually win the National League flag. EITHER WAY "I've got four 20-game winners," Weaver pointed out, "and I can go either way against either the Giants or the pirates. "One of those dubs has pitching (the Giants) and the other (the Pirates) hits," said! Weaver. "We'll just wait and see how it comes out." Suddenly remembering that the size of the World Series shares depends on the size of the crowds. Weaver amended his neutrality stance. "Because you might say I've got mercenary motives," he added with a grin, "I'd like to see the team with the biggest playoff ballpark win that playoff." Weaver professed not to know which team that is. which is like claiming he didn't know who bats next inning. It's the Pirates.
