Don Mattingly was pulled out of the New York Yankees lineup yesterday because he refused to get a haircut."He was told to get a haircut before the game," manager Stump Merrill said. "He was told about it two weeks ago, too."He asked me if he was in the lineup, and I asked him if he would get his hair cut. He said no, so I told him he would not be in the lineup. Why have rules if you don't enforce them?"Mattingly, who was fined $250, said the haircut order was coming from general manager Gene Michael and being carried out by Merrill."

It will be another turn back the clock day of sorts for the Orioles tonight (8:35, Ch. 2) when they open a four-game series at Royals Stadium.On the mound for Kansas City will be former Oriole Mike Boddicker, who has been virtually unstoppable against the team for which he won 79 games from 1982 to 1988. Boddicker is 5-1 in seven starts against the Orioles since he was traded to the Boston Red Sox midway through the '88 season. Since April 15, 1989, when he lost 12-4 to Baltimore and tonight's Orioles starter, Jeff Ballard, Boddicker has won four straight.

THE YANKEES' MOVESThe players: The Yankees traded three minor-league pitchers for David Cone, the 1994 AL Cy Young Award winner, and swapped disgruntled outfielder Danny Tartabull to Oakland for disgruntled Athletics outfielder Ruben Sierra. The Yankees also are expected to activate outfielder Darryl Strawberry in the next few days.What it means: Cone is a tremendous addition to the Yankees, a veteran star with postseason experience, although some scouts think that he is gradually losing his fastball, becoming more of a breaking-ball pitcher.

There are a few things you have to remember about the All-Star selection process:The right choices: Tettleton (starter), Harper (reserve).OutfieldKen Griffey Jr. has captured the heart of the baseball public, but his numbers don't justify his status as the American League's top vote-getter. Dave Henderson is the only legitimate choice for the starting lineup, thanks to a tremendous all-around performance in the first half. Rickey Henderson made the starting lineup because he is one of the most loved and hated players in the game, but this is one year he could have been left off the roster.
