On Javy Lopez joining the Colorado Rockies Actually, if you were to pick one location to put the guy, it would be Colorado. Power has always been Javy's only contribution, and Coors Field will only magnify that. Good for Javy. Maybe Rodrigo Lopez is a Rockie soon? Is the rumor true that there's a shortage of catchers? They seem like left-handed relievers; anyone will do, and anyone will take a chance on one.

DENVER -- The World Series ended in disappointment for Denver with the defeat of the Colorado Rockies by the Boston Red Sox. But Denver still has a scorecard full of attractions for travelers who venture to the Mile High City. Here are my baseball-themed picks for the home of the National League champions. You can use them now, or as Rockies fans might say, "Wait till next year." PITCHER --Get a pitcher of Sandlot Barman's Pils at the Falling Rock Tap House, just a pony keg's throw from Coors Field.

Quote: "In a park like this, things can get out of hand."-- Rockies manager Jim Leyland, after Colorado's 24-12 loss to Cincinnati at Coors Field.It's a fact: Arizona has 33 homers in 22 road games this season. Atlanta is 19-0 when scoring five or more runs. The last time Cincinnati swept a series from Colorado was August 1993 -- the Rockies' inaugural season.Who's hot: The Braves' Bret Boone has hit in 20 of his last 21 games and reached base safely in 21 straight. The Reds' Sean Casey has reached base in eight straight plate appearances.

Denver-- --So this is what it comes down to for the Colorado Rockies, now that the 103rd World Series has moved to a mile above sea level: They have to hope they are the ones who benefit from the reduced number of oxygen molecules in the rarified air, and they have to pray the Boston Red Sox suffer from the lack of an important element in their team chemistry. Don't fret. I'm not going to blind anybody with science. It's just that both teams will arrive at Coors Field for tonight's Game 3 with plenty of room to wonder how the change of environment will affect this - so far - one-sided exercise in American League superiority.

DENVER -- If baseball fans are obsessed with the home run, then the 69th All-Star Game has come to the right place at the right time.Nowhere does a baseball travel as far as it does in the Mile High City, where Coors Field is known as much for its tape-measure home runs as it is for its architectural similarity to Camden Yards.And at no time has the home run been a more prominent part of the baseball landscape than in 1998, with three players on pace to break Roger Maris' record for home runs in a season.

Late Orioles game: Last nights game between the Orioles and Colorado Rockies in Denver ended too late to be included in this edition. A complete report can be found in later editions or on the Internet at www. baltimoresun.com. DENVER Orioles hitting coach Terry Crowley walked into the visitors dugout at Coors Field Friday afternoon with a disgusted look on his face. Denver was covered in clouds, and the Rocky Mountain air felt like rain. For years, Crowley had been hearing about the hitters paradise that is Coors Field.

If there were any doubt about the impact of altitude on the flight of a baseball, it disappeared into the thin air at Coors Field when the Chicago Cubs scored a 26-7 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday night. Only two position players on the Cubs roster, Howard Johnson and Ozzie Timmons, failed to hit safely for a team that entered the week averaging just 4.5 runs per game.Seven Cubs had extra-base hits, but only three of them were home runs, leaving room to argue that it was the thin Rockies' pitching staff rather than the thin air that turned Coors Field into a shooting gallery.

PHILADELPHIA - It must be heady stuff to be compared to the greatest hitter of all time, but Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton isn't ready to embrace the concept. It's not that he fails to see the connection. He just doesn't think his name and Ted Williams belong in the same sentence. Such is life when you're in just your third full major-league season and your batting average is threatening to start with a four. Helton, the one-time University of Tennessee starting quarterback who took a look at teammate Peyton Manning and decided to concentrate on baseball, finished last night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies batting .395 and looking like a very legitimate candidate to be baseball's first .400 hitter since the Splendid Splinter hit .406 in 1941.

Quote: "He's incredible. It doesn't matter if it's a fastball, changeup or whatever. He's making this ballpark look like Enron Field with the Astros, or Coors Field." - Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte on teammate Glenallen Hill. It's a fact: Cleveland's Jim Thome hits 227th homer on Wednesday to move ahead of Earl Averill for second on the team's all-time list. Who's hot: New York Yankees' Glenallen Hill homered for the 12th time in 68 at-bats since joining the Yankees. He leads the league with 10 homers in August.

DENVER -- The 69th All-Star Game figured to be an offensive showcase, and anything less would have been a fraudulent advertisement for hitter-friendly Coors Field. But did baseball's midseason festival have to turn into a circus?Maybe it was the thin air. Maybe it was the thin pitching. Maybe it was a combination of all the factors that have turned 1998 into the year of the big hitter that turned last night's All-Star Game into a biggest offensive free-for-all in its history.The American League scored in each of the last six innings on the way to a 13-8 victory over the National League that featured so many offensive highlights there isn't room to list them all.It was the highest-scoring All-Star Game, with a record-tying 31 hits, 19 by the AL. It also was the longest, which probably didn't sit well with time czar Frank Robinson, who participated in the first-ball ceremony.
