BASEBALL: The Crime Dog Collared

The Dodgers have significantly upgraded at first base by replacing Eric Karros, who is finished as an everyday player, with Fred McGriff. The Crime Dog is old and his future is probably short, but he can still hit and he keeps himself in good shape. Meanwhile, the Mets have been humiliated once again. When the Yankees announce that they are going after a guy like Hideki Matsui, it's as good as done - nobody else even gets in the way. The Mets, though, wound up botching the announcement of Norihiro Nakamura's apparent signing, and now they're back to plan W (Ty Wigginton) at third base.

Oh well, maybe they can trade Glavine for Kevin Millwood . . .
