Putting out this week's sports media notes while wondering whether the president-elect has a spot in his administration called "Guy Who Sits on the Couch Watching TV While Eating Cheez-Its": * If you listen to much sports talk - not recommended unless you have ample caffeine - you probably have heard much of the same from callers offering only slight variation on the theme: The national media disrespect/ignore/downgrade the Ravens. I was glad to hear Bruce Cunningham tell a caller to his show on 105.7 The Fan this week that fans from around the country say much the same thing about their teams, too. However, along those lines, some people no doubt will see a slight by CBS' assignment of Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf to Sunday's Ravens-New York Giants game, which, by the way, is going out to 48 percent of the country.

Trading places Here's a thumbnail look at what contending teams might be looking for in the days leading up to the July 31 deadline for making trades without passing players through waivers: AL East New York Yankees: Run-producing first baseman or designated hitter. Would pursue Jason Giambi heavily if available. Also believed to be interested in Tampa Bay homebody Fred McGriff. Boston Red Sox: Big-name starting pitcher. Al Leiter would be a nice fit. Reliever Ugueth Urbina may be in the mix. AL Central Cleveland Indians: Hungry for go-to starting pitcher.

Quote: "We earned it. It's a better feeling when you win. Al was absolutely outstanding. He was fabulous."- Mets manager Bobby Valentine after 6-3 win over Atlanta in which Al Leiter allowed just four hits in 6 2/3 innings. It's a fact: The Mets have seven players with at least 10 homers each, equaling the club mark. Who's hot: Todd Helton's 56 doubles for Colorado are the most by an NL player since Joe Medwick set the league record with 64 in 1936. Who's not: The Padres have been in the NL West cellar since April 30. On deck: Mark Grace's next RBI will make him the seventh player in Cubs history to drive in 1000.

ATLANTA - The 75th All-Star Game probably will be remembered most for all of the marquee players who were unable to take the field, but New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will remember it a bit more fondly. He'll remember how he was chosen to replace injured Alex Rodriguez in the starting lineup, and how he reeled off three hits against three of the toughest pitchers in the National League - the last of which drove home two crucial runs in a 6-3 American League victory at sold-out Turner Field.
