According to sources, the Cubs are kicking the tires again on Padres closer Heath Bell (left), as they did at the winter meetings. He would strengthen the bullpen, but Lou Piniella would be back to juggling two would-be closers in Bell and Carlos Marmol , who went 11-for-11 in save situations after Piniella gave him the job. … The Brewers are thrilled with shortstop Alcides Escobar . He got to the big leagues with his glove...

Rich "Goose" Gossage's long wait to get into the Baseball Hall of Fame is finally over, but Mark McGwire's vigil seemingly will go on for years. Gossage, a dominating reliever who in 22 seasons pitched for nine teams including the New York Yankees, San Diego Padres and Chicago White Sox, received 466 of the 543 votes (85.8 percent) cast by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. In his ninth year of Hall of Fame eligibility, Gossage easily eclipsed the 75 percent total required for induction after falling 21 votes short last year, when first-time candidates Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn were elected.

Jesse Orosco, Orioles relieverThe five toughest hitters:1. Chili Davis. "He's just absolutely destroyed me. Doubles, singles, homers, whatever it takes."2. Danny Tartabull. "He's hit me very hard. He's the only guy I've allowed three homers to in my career."3. Harold Reynolds. "He's got like eight or nine hits against me in 10 at-bats. He wouldn't try to drive the ball off me. He'd hit it wherever the pitch would be."4. Andre Dawson. "He's always been so aggressive. You can throw him a good pitch, down and in, and he's such a good hitter where he's still going to be able to drive the pitch somewhere."

CHICAGO -- Three weeks ago, Andre Dawson took his 3 1/2 -year-old son, Darius, to the souvenir shop at Fenway Park to get him a Red Sox cap. Darius protested. He wanted a Cubs cap."I had to buy both caps," Dawson said at Comiskey Park on Friday night, his first visit to Chicago after six seasons with the Cubs."I would have liked to retire here," Dawson said. "I love the city, and I love the people. But the Cubs management is a whole different story."The Cubs' brass, fearful that his knees wouldn't hold up, refused to offer him a contract for more than one year.

Bruce Sutter's Hall of Fame wait finally ended yesterday. For most baseball fans here, and maybe nationally, however, the true anticipation began after Sutter learned he had finally received enough votes to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on his 13th try. Now, Cal Ripken, Tony Gwynn and -- perhaps most curiously -- Mark McGwire are on the yearlong clock. Sutter, who saved 300 games for the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves, was named on 76.9 percent of the ballots -- 400 of a record 520 -- returned by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Superstar shortstop Alex Rodriguez has a big credibility problem. Everything he does is unbelievable. He just won American League Player of the Month honors for the second month in a row. He leads the major leagues with 48 home runs and 121 RBIs. He is the best all-around player in the game, the highest-paid athlete in the history of professional team sports and - by most accounts - a pretty decent human. So why isn't he the runaway candidate for AL Most Valuable Player? There is no dispute he is putting together one of the greatest individual performances in baseball history.

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -- Even if he is the pride of the Windy City, even if Bo couldn't even keep up with him in the cross-town popularity polls, even if he is more sacred in Chicago than Da Bears, Ryne Sandberg is guilty.Guilty of creating the biggest stir of baseball's otherwise tranquil spring.Call it the $7 million fallout.When the Cubs' extraordinary second baseman signed a four-year extension for a staggering $28 million a few weeks ago, it generated shivers of concern from the fields of Arizona right on through the front offices of every team in the sport.
