CINCINNATI -- Dave Stewart blinked. That was the first news bulletin from a World Series in which the question was being posed: If the Reds win Game 1, are they a dynasty?Stewart is the centerpiece of the Oakland pitching staff, the man they run out there as often as possible, the pitcher who owns most of the A's postseason success. Of their last 12 postseason wins, Stewart has won only six.He's pretty much a sure thing -- as sure as the nasty stare for which he has become famous.The Reds didn't knock the snarl off Stewart's face last night, but they did deepen it significantly.

Psychic powers are not required to detect the problems with "Ghost the Musical," which haunts the Hippodrome this week as part of a national tour.  For a start, it's over-produced. It seems the creators wanted to have it both ways, wanted it to be a stage show and a movie at the same time, with all sorts of cinematic elements popping up seemingly every few minutes. If you wanted to see the 1990 "Ghost," you'd put it in your Netflix queue. Another problem is that, like many a new musical ("Flashdance" screeches to mind)

TORONTO -- A chilling wind shot through the corridors of this city's shiny, sky-scraped downtown yesterday morning. The streets were empty. It was Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Everyone was home. Except for the people without homes.At the intersection of Shuler and Jarvis, on the edge of downtown, several hundred of Toronto's homeless gathered for a free turkey dinner at the Salvation Army's Harbour Light Center. There were families. There were men and women by themselves. They turned up their collars against the wind and waited in bright sunshine.

There's a deep-seated belief among folks in the music industry that people -- by which they mean you, the typical consumer -- don't "get" groups. According to them, CD buyers have no appreciation for the power of collaboration, and thus see bands as consisting of two camps: The Singer and The Other Guys.By that way of thinking, it would be hard to imagine the point of a Eurythmics reunion.Never mind that the duo was one of the most popular recording acts of the '80s, generating such hits as "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

CHAIRMAN FRANK Sliwka has been assured by the Oakland A's that pitcher Dave Stewart, who will represent them here tomorrow night at the 38th Tops in Sports banquet at the Towson Center, is a top gentleman and citizen.Sliwka found the last Oakland player invited to the affair -- Jose Canseco -- to be neither of those things. Canseco failed to show up in Baltimore three years ago to receive the coveted Babe Ruth Crown. To this day he has never called to explain his absence."Dave Stewart is a good guy," says Sliwka, who still boils at the mention of Canseco.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Roger Clemens started one debate yesterday but ended another. His ejection by plate umpire Terry Cooney ignited a controversy that likely will rage all winter. But his loss to Dave Stewart closed the argument over who is the superior big-game pitcher.Stewart took a two-hit shutout into the ninth inning on the day his team, the Oakland A's, reached the World Series for the third straight year. Clemens staged a temper tantrum for the ages on the day his team, the Boston Red Sox, failed to avoid a four-game sweep.

CHICAGO -- It was business as usual for Dave Stewart here last night. Once again the veteran right-hander rose to the kind of occasion he cherishes.For the fourth time in his scintillating career, Stewart won a pennant-clincher as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox, 6-3, to win their second straight American League championship. It was the second win of the series for Stewart, who won MVP honors while improving his career AL playoff record to 8-0.Although at times struggling with his control, and without overpowering stuff, Stewart limited the White Sox to four hits in 7 1/3 innings.

TORONTO -- Tony La Russa has to love this. The Oakland Athletics, the erstwhile Brothers of Bash, are cast as underdogs in the American League Championship Series that begins tonight at SkyDome. Such a deal.The A's are back in the playoffs, and they don't even have to carry around that muscle-bound image that weighed so heavily on them during their surprising World Series losses to the Los Angeles Dodgers (1988) and Cincinnati Reds (1990).La Russa may have the Toronto Blue Jays just where he wants them.

With the baseball strike over and the clubs in camp, we're supposed to care once again about things like which pitch a new Oriole considers his best.Frankly, I'm not up for that yet. Not yet anyway.Neither, I'm sure, are a lot of others.The nearly eight-month-long players strike changed the thinking of a lot of people. Now, instead of coming back to the familiar, we find, all too often, that there is no familiar to come back to.The events of recent days have happened with such dizzying speed that it's hard to keep up.The Orioles sign a couple of pitchers named Brown and Jones and one named Orosco and already we're feeling disoriented.

Here's a bit of unsolicited advice for Roland Hemond as he makes final preparations for the Orioles' expected off-season shopping and swapping spree:Be wary of agents, and general managers, bearing glossy National League statistics. The evidence suggests they could be tainted and that the NL, like the old gray mare, ain't what it used to be.The Orioles, of course, should hardly need a reminder. Visions of Curt Schilling during the postseason, coupled with the performances of Pete Harnisch and Steve Finley, bring back painful memories of the Glenn Davis trade.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- It comes down to Dave Stewart again, and he probably wouldn't have it any other way. He will face David Cone today in Game 5 of what has become a sudden-death series for the Oakland Athletics.Stewart is taking his responsibility seriously. He kept the clubhouse doors closed after the game and gave the club an impromptu pep talk after the A's came from five runs ahead to drop a 7-6 decision to the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday at the Oakland Coliseum.The A's are a veteran team that has been in the playoffs four times in the last five years.

TORONTO -- Dave Stewart wanted it bad. He wanted to defeat Jack Morris and the Toronto Blue Jays. He wanted to show the world that the best money pitcher of the past decade was not the pitcher who has gone from city to city to collect the best money. It had become almost personal.He wanted to prove it the way he proved it against Roger Clemens in 1990. He wanted to prove it all night, but he didn't get the chance.The Oakland Athletics opened the American League Championship Series with a 4-3 triumph over the Blue Jays last night at SkyDome, but Stewart had to settle for the collective gratification of a team victory.
