Tampa, Fla. -- For a fleeting moment, Darryl Strawberry was just like the rest of them - a proud parent standing to applaud his son on senior day, beaming as the Comcast Center crowd collectively rose in appreciation of D.J. Strawberry's efforts, not only during Maryland's amazing run, but also during his entire career. It really has been that simple all along, Darryl Strawberry said, a typical father-son relationship that was deemed interesting only because of who the father once was, and who the son has come to be. The two have always been intertwined, inseparable even when Darryl Strawberry was not at his eldest son's college basketball games, let alone in the same state.

LOS ANGELES -- I wish he would give all the money back. The entire $8 million. Every penny.I know it's a pipe dream. I know this is the '90s, and professional athletes are as likely to pass up a check as they are to pick up one in a restaurant.But I wish Darryl Strawberry would do the decent thing for once and hand back all of the money he's taking out of the pockets of the Dodger faithful for this season and next.Remember, Dodgers fans, you're paying for this. When you buy tickets, hot dogs and pennants, when you pay for parking, when you fork over your hard-earned cash so that you and your family can go to the park and take in a game, all that money flows to one central fund.

WOULD you step on a train if you thought Darryl Strawberry might be the conductor? Mr. Strawberry, the New York Yankees baseball player, recently failed yet another cocaine test. His is an absurd cycle of relapse, sorrow and reinstatement to the job. Of course, Mr. Strawberry plays baseball, and there's only so much damage one can do at the plate or in the field. Were he operating a train -- say, a light rail vehicle -- while on cocaine, the results could be disastrous. Baltimore's light rail riders have no real assurances that people like Darryl Strawberry aren't operating transit vehicles, some of which can carry hundreds of passengers.
