For those sports fans who cannot discuss baseball until the NBA playoffs are over, keep reading. Several major leaguers enjoyed stellar high school and college basketball careers and probably are watching the pro playoffs with keen interest. This week's selection is in honor of those men who chose baseball over their basketball hi-tops.Delino DeShields -- winner-- Wears his socks high in honor of Negro Leagues. Has a sense of history and a bright future.Dave Winfield -- loser-- Winnie's hanging on for 500 home runs, but as a right-handed designated hitter he doesn't get many at bats.

After allowing three earned runs in seven innings the night before at Rochester, Dave Johnson met yesterday afternoon with manager John Oates and general manager Roland Hemond. Results of the meeting were predictably inconclusive.Johnson was told that the Orioles aren't ready to make a roster move. Asked if he thought the righthander understood the club's position, Oates said: "Probably not."Which is understandable. Johnson has now made five starts on a rehabilitation assignment -- three with Double A Hagerstown and two with Triple A Rochester.

CHICAGO WHITE SOXWhere they're coming from: They finished 67-46, just good enough for first place, but the strike kept them from a shot at their first World Series title since 1917.Where they're going: First place. No other team has better young pitching, and no other team has Frank Thomas, who led the AL in runs, walks, on-base average, slugging average, extra-base hits and gushy comparisons to Ted Williams.Key newcomers: P Jim Abbott (4.55 ERA), DH Chris Sabo (11 HRs in 258 at-bats), OF Mike Devereaux (.203)

TORONTO -- Paul Molitor is 37 years old and getting better, which, because he isn't a bottle of wine, makes no sense.What is the portrait of a player, even the best player, at the grandfatherly baseball age of 37? Neither his bat nor his reflexes are as swift and steady as they were. Something somewhere is slowly giving out. Maybe his knees. Maybe his confidence. At the most, the very most, he is maintaining. But certainly not getting better.How, then, do we explain Molitor? Simple. We don't even begin to try. Because there is no explanation.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Toronto Blue Jays have their critics, but they had all the answers in yesterday's 7-5 victory over the Oakland Athletics in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series.They answered every challenge. They took advantage of virtually every opportunity. They took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven playoff because they were too good and too resourceful and too tough to let it get away.When was the last time anyone used those words to describe the Blue Jays in the postseason?

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.
