But he was one of several players who were waived by the Colts a week ago to get the team under the salary cap.Bickett may be brought back by the Colts or he can sign with another team.

BOSTON - The scouting report on Boston Red Sox pitcher John Burkett warned the Orioles about his speed variations, his pitch selection and his pinpoint control. It warned them not to be overly anxious in certain situations and not to be overly patient in others. Yet as Mike Hargrove watched hitter after hitter return to the dugout yesterday in various levels of disgust, he knew those lessons had not taken hold. Burkett finished with a four-hit shutout, as the Red Sox dispatched the Orioles and pitcher Sidney Ponson, 4-0, at Fenway Park in a speedy 2 hours, 22 minutes.

ATLANTA - An avid bowler who has rolled more 300 games than he can accurately count - it's either nine or 10 by his estimation - Atlanta Braves pitcher John Burkett is accustomed to throwing strikes. He'll need plenty of them tonight to be spared a loss. Taking the ball for Game 3 of the National League Championship Series also means taking on Arizona's Curt Schilling. It's an assignment few would envy. Schilling racked up two complete games in the Division Series, including a 1-0 gem against St. Louis' Matt Morris.

Johnson, a lieutenant commander in the Naval Reserve, got himself assigned to be a presidential observer in the South Pacific. Johnson was a passenger on a B-26 which briefly came under fire from a Japanese Zero fighter before landing safely at its base.

NEW YORK -- New York Yankees manager Joe Torre has agonized for days over the makeup of his starting lineup for the opener of the American League Division Series tonight against the Texas Rangers, and he still wasn't ready to name his designated hitter yesterday.Should he go with Cecil Fielder, who clearly is one of the most dangerous hitters of the 1990s? Or Darryl Strawberry, who has a good -- if limited -- record against Texas Rangers Game 1 starter John Burkett?"I'm trying to digest as much information as I can," Torre said at yesterday's news conference at Yankee Stadium.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Orioles manager Davey Johnson seemed pretty proud of himself. He shuffled his lineup last night for the second game in a row and apparently shook the club out of its offensive doldrums.The Orioles scored six runs off right-hander John Burkett in the first two innings and pummeled the slumping Texas Rangers, 9-3, to move to the threshold of a three-game sweep at The Ballpark in Arlington."My lineup worked," Johnson said. "I think everybody kind of liked it. They're probably wondering why I didn't try it before."
