Looks like trouble in paradise. The Los Angeles Dodgers and California Angels were on top of the baseball world a couple of weeks ago, but both teams have fallen on hard times.The Dodgers remain in control of the National League West race, but only because the Cincinnati Reds matched them loss for loss (and then some) during a recent seven-game skid.The Angels took over first place July 3, only to slip into an offensive slump and slip back into the pack in the American League West.In Los Angeles, the focal point of the frustration is outfielder Darryl Strawberry, who seems to have lost the competitive fire that made him one of the most feared hitters in baseball the past eight years.

Don't spoil the fun Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune Please, Bud Selig, don't step in. For the good of the sport, Major League Baseball will probably step in to seize control of the Dodgers from Frank McCourt. But watching from a distance there's something entertaining about the whole fiasco. What will Frank do next? Will he hire himself as the third-base coach, paid $10 million a year? Will he sack Ned Colletti and hire his son as general manager, at $20 million a year?

It's hard to imagine this fall being better scripted for TV executives and Major League Baseball. Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Boston are all involved as baseball kicks off its postseason with three games today. New York teams failed to join the high-powered mix, but it was the Milwaukee Brewers, a pretty good story and baseball commissioner Bud Selig's hometown club, that ruined things for the Mets last weekend. So MLB can't be too upset with that. Besides, there are plenty of story lines worth following.

There was a total self-assurance to Milt Pappas, almost approaching arrogance. Either it was natural or contrived -- an effort to be mature beyond his tender years, a swashbuckling big-time attitude. At the age of 18, only days out of high school and a young Oriole of imposing presence, he took to calling manager Paul Richards by his first name.Pappas has now told his life story to not one ghostwriter but two, and the recitation has been published by Angel Press of Oshkosh, Wis., under the title "Out At Home, or the Triumph and Tragedy in the Life of a Major Leaguer."

Competing in a tight division race with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday countered with a deal of their own for a slugging outfielder, acquiring Adam Dunn from the Cincinnati Reds for a minor league pitcher and two players to be named later. Dunn, 28, was batting .233 this season for the Reds with 32 homers, tied for tops in the majors. The trade gives the first-place Diamondbacks, who entered the day with a 1 1/2 -game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West, a boost to an anemic offense.

So you think you had a rough weekend? Try being Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, whose average has been above .400 most of the year, only recently dipping to .394. Sounds like a dream season, except he's headed to the disabled list with a quadriceps injury. If there is one time when a player doesn't want to sit, even with a sore quad, it's when he's flirting with a .400 average. Or you could be Jered Weaver, the Los Angeles Angels pitcher who had a no-hit bid alive through six innings Saturday night.

The Los Angeles Angels may have been the best fit. The Houston Astros had the most intriguing names on the table. The Texas Rangers could have given the Orioles a slugger and prospects. The Los Angeles Dodgers might have had the best group of young players available. The Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners had interest, even the American League East rival Boston Red Sox and the National League East-leading New York Mets wanted in on the action if a three-way blockbuster was being discussed.

LOS ANGELES -- Sometimes, fact is stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more likely to be the case than my old stomping grounds in Southern California. Here's a slightly jaundiced look at some real headlines from the left coast. Headline: Callaway's Operating Chief Resigns Facts: The president and chief operating officer of Carlsbad, Calif.-based Callaway Golf, Patrice Hutin, resigned this week after the company posted a $35 million loss for the quarter that ended Sept. 30. My take: How in the wide, wide world of sports can a company that charges $599 for a single golf club lose money?

KOBE BRYANT scored 35 points in the Los Angeles Lakers' preseason opener against the Seattle Supersonics on Tuesday night, which proves at least one thing. It's a lot more fun facing the basket when you're not facing 20 years in prison. Of course, it's a lot more fun for Kobe for a lot of reasons. He doesn't have to share the spotlight with that big oaf who can't shoot free throws, and he doesn't have to listen to the Zen Master anymore, not that he ever listened to former coach Phil Jackson in the first place.

The New York Yankees suffered their first major setback of the winter yesterday, when the Houston Astros reached a deal with left-handed starting pitcher Andy Pettitte on a three-year contract. Pettitte was one of the cornerstones of the new Yankees dynasty, emerging as a star-quality starter with a 21-8 record in 1996 and concluding his Yankees career with another 21-8 performance in 2003. He won 149 games over nine seasons in New York and owns a share of the major league record for postseason victories with 13. He agreed to what is reportedly a heavily backloaded contract worth $31.5 million to pitch near his Deer Park, Texas, home.

No two players did more to add a sense of dignity to the Orioles' fourth-place season than first baseman Jeff Conine and reliever Buddy Groom. The club officially recognized each player's significance yesterday by assuming their contract options for 2002. Conine, 35, will earn $3.5 million next season after emerging from a projected backup role in spring training to become the Orioles' offensive leader and Most Valuable Player. Rotating among five positions but playing mostly first base because of a series of injuries to David Segui, Conine ranked 10th in the American League with a .311 batting average and drove in a team-leading 97 runs.
