BREAKOUT PLAYER / / TROY TULOWITZKI Team / / Colorado Rockies Position / / Shortstop Comment / / Tulowitzki was taken with the seventh pick in the first round of the 2005 draft. By the end of August 2006, he was in the major leagues. And he might stay there for years. He's 6 feet 3 and 205 pounds and should be able to take advantage of the thin air at Coors Field. He's just 22, but the Rockies have cleared a space for him.

To avoid hiring a real commissioner to solve baseball's plethora of problems, baseball czar Bud Selig endorsed an Angelosian idea at Wednesday's owners meeting -- build new, publicly-funded ballparks in 11 major league cities. Will these new facilities cure baseball's ills? This week's selection is an unscientific analysis of the franchises with the most recenltly-built ballparks.Colorado Rockies -- UP -- The facade of Coors Field looks like Ebbets Field.

Rafael Palmeiro says he's appalled by Marion Jones' insincerity and dishonesty. Just so I understand: The NBA has a player dress code, but not a team executive harassment code, right? Not to pretend to be a football expert or anything, but maybe this afternoon against the 49ers, the Ravens could try running the ball. With the back they traded three picks to get, dumped their all-time career rushing leader to make room for, and are paying $40 million to keep. Whether the Orioles will regret Jim Duquette's leaving depends on whom Andy MacPhail gets to replace him. But Duquette is a good enough personnel man to put the regret ideas in the back of your head someday.

DENVER -- For several minutes, for half an inning, there was legitimate, breath-holding, hat-hanging drama in a World Series that previously had looked like a Boston Red Sox highlight film. Then the Red Sox did what they've done all year: Their hitters bashed the opposing reliever and their own bullpen held steady. And when the dust settled after four hours and 19 minutes on the first World Series game ever held in Denver, the Red Sox emerged with a 10-5 win over the Colorado Rockies last night and a commanding 3-0 lead.

The Orioles scratched shortstop J.J. Hardy from the starting lineup with back spasms a little less than 90 minutes before the start of Saturday night's game against the Colorado Rockies. Hardy is listed as day-to-day. "I feel like I probably could have played tonight," Hardy said. "I don't think we wanted to risk anything to make it get worse. I think it definitely got better with the treatment today. We'll see tomorrow. I think it'll be pretty good. "   Ryan Flaherty, who was slated to be the designated hitter, will start in Hardy's place and bat eighth.
