ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Philadelphia Phillies' Lenny Dykstra and Darren Daulton were no-shows at yesterday's workout. Dykstra contacted the NL office on Sunday night and said he would be detained by personal matters, but nobody seemed to know the whereabouts of Daulton.NL manager Felipe Alou said he understood that both would be in uniform for tonight's game."It bothers me, the fact that this is All-Star Game time and they were supposed to be present," said Phillies president Bill Giles. "The only players not present are my players.

I have spent my entire professional life in sports journalism, and I couldn't be prouder of that profession than I was when ESPN's SportsCenter beat HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel to a story that transcends the mere mortal aspects of sports coverage. And when I say that the Darren Daulton interviews on the two programs - first on ESPN on Sunday night and then on HBO on Tuesday night - were transcendental, I'm not exaggerating. Daulton, you might recall, was a pretty good player for the Philadelphia Phillies until his career was cut short by injuries and his life temporarily spun out of control.

Indians outfielder Albert Belle was suspended for one week yesterday by American League president Bobby Brown for intentionally hitting a spectator with a baseball. Belle immediately appealed. He can continue playing while the appeal is pending."I regret that I lost my spirituality for an instance," Belle said, reading from a prepared statement after the suspension was announced. "It will not happen again."He declined to comment on his appeal and would not answer any questions.Belle threw a ball at spectator Jeff Pillar of Cleveland during the seventh inning of Saturday's game against California, after Pillar heckled him about his problems with alcoholism.

By listening to manager Davey Johnson yesterday, it's obvious the Orioles have more than just a passing interest in Philadelphia slugger Darren Daulton, whom the Phillies are looking to trade. Johnson spoke at length of the benefits of having the left-handed hitter in the lineup or on the bench, bad knees and all."If you look at the mashing clubs in this league, the power potential of Seattle, Cleveland, Boston, New York, those guys can maul you," he said. "They've usually got a mauler sitting on the bench and they can dictate matchups late.

The free-agent watch is marked by a series of critical dates, the first of which is Sunday. Either the Orioles re-sign catcher Mickey Tettleton by then, or face competition for his services on the open market.In theory, the deadline is significant for Tettleton too, for if he signs before Sunday, he will retain his rights to free agency the next time his contract expires.But Tettleton's agent, Tony Attanasio, yesterday dismissed those "repeater rights" as a motivating factor in his talks with the Orioles, which are expected to resume today.

Agent Tony Attanasio is leaving open the possibility that catcher Mickey Tettleton will accept a one-year contract with the Baltimore Orioles, but only if adverse market conditions force him into salary arbitration.Tettleton is seeking a multiyear contract but has yet to receive a multiyear offer. The Orioles have asked him to accept a one-year deal and might get their wish if they are willing to meet a Dec. 7 deadline for offering arbitration.If Tettleton has not signed with anyone by that date, the Orioles will have the option of offering salary arbitration.

CHICAGO -- Unlike Mark Anthony, I have come to praise, not bury. The Philadelphia Phillies, that is. There will be plenty of time to bury them. As has been said, it's a long season; whether they will make their usual plunge to the bottom in the National League East is not known.What is known is that two weeks into the championship skirmish the Phillies are baseball's surprise team. Also, and this is no surprise, they have the best all-around catcher in the league in Darren Daulton."He is the man on this ballclub," insisted Richie Ashburn, a diamond expert of the first rank.

Can they?How can they get along without Darren Daulton -- iron man, cleanup hitter, zookeeper?This is a man who is more than just an all-star catcher and run-production machine. He is the Phillies' Lion King. He doesn't just lead. He rules."Losing all those other guys -- that was like having tornado warnings," Larry Andersen said Wednesday.

Philadelphia -- Perhaps, before the surprising Philadelphia Phillies get too far ahead of the pack in the National League East, it might be wise to make one thing clear about major-league baseball's winningest team.This is not the spitting image of the 1993 National League championship club.OK, so Lenny Dykstra still can drool with the best of them, but the new Phillies are a far more genteel bunch than the street gang that won the pennant two years ago.
