CHICAGO - St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Darryl Kile complained of shoulder pain and weakness the night before he died, possible warning signs that he had heart problems, officials said yesterday. An autopsy on Kile, 33, revealed an 80 to 90 percent narrowing of two of his three coronary arteries, and that his heart was nearly 25 percent larger than normal, said Dr. Edmund Donoghue, the Cook County, Ill., medical examiner. Donoghue said he believed Kile's condition, known as coronary atheroscleroris or hardening of the arteries, brought on an erratic heartbeat that caused his death.

St. Louis-- --St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa has seen it all in his 28 years as a major league manager, so it's hard to imagine a couple of wet evenings in the Midwest causing him a whole lot of anxiety. He was manager of the Oakland Athletics in 1989, when the earth shook in the Bay Area and put the Fall Classic in true perspective. He was manager of the Cardinals when one of his star pitchers - Darryl Kile - was found dead in the team hotel in Chicago. Into each life some rain must fall, and whoever came up with that cliche was not talking about anything that shows up on Doppler radar.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Pat Hentgen, Darryl Kile and the rest of the 2000 St. Louis Cardinals pitching staff had a three-word slogan that summed up their commitments to the team, themselves and the game they loved. Take the ball. When a major-league pitcher spends two or three hours every five days throwing a baseball 90 mph, his entire arm is put to a serious test. Afterward, his shoulder and/or elbow are usually packed in ice, and five days later, when it's time to start another game, he rarely will go to the mound without feeling some semblance of pain, stiffness or discomfort.

NEW YORK - The thumb on shortstop Mike Bordick's right hand remains a little stiff, limiting his range of motion. The big toe on catcher Mike Piazza's right foot is still sore, the reminder coming each time he runs. Second baseman Edgardo Alfonzo had his left hand wrapped during Friday's workout after being hit by a ground ball. The New York Mets don't know adversity, only minor inconveniences. The St. Louis Cardinals? Now there's a team with problems. Huge, throat-griping problems - the kind that have left them gasping for air in the National League Championship Series.

Quote: "He's something. He's a superstar, no question about it. This is what Babe Ruth must have looked like." - Florida manager John Boles on Montreal slugger Vladimir Guerrero, who hit his team-record 43rd homer of the season. It's a fact: Colorado's Jeff Cirillo and Todd Helton are the sixth pair of teammates to both reach 50 doubles in the same season. Who's hot: Houston's Richard Hidalgo homered off St. Louis' Gene Stechschulte for his 42nd of the year and ninth against St. Louis, the most vs. any team.
