They won't even get a fig leaf. Next month, virtually the entire cast of the baseball drama Take Me Out will spend 10 long minutes on stage each night in the buff. Ten of the 11 actors - all volunteers, average Joes with day jobs like fixing computers - won't have the benefit of towels, strategically placed props or artful lighting.

Over the course of the three-hour World Wrestling Entertainment show, heroes and villains battled it out in the ring, and parents didn't feel compelled to shield their kids' eyes from the action.

W hen Michael Oher takes the field as a Baltimore Raven this fall, a national audience of readers and moviegoers even bigger than the Ravens' fan base will be cheering for him. The amazing story behind his rise to football stardom will fill the bestseller shelves at bookstores on Oct. 12, with a new edition of Michael Lewis' powerhouse piece of nonfiction "The Blind Side." And if all goes according to plan, it will also pack movie theaters on Nov. 20, when writer-director John Lee Hancock's movie version hits theaters, starring newcomer Quinton Aron as Oher and Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw as Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy - the wealthy, white, conservative, evangelical couple who devoted themselves to the happiness and success of "Big Mike," a black kid from the meanest streets of Memphis, Tenn.

Somewhere Aaron Sele chuckles. DOWN -- Bullpen mayhem The bullpen is 1-15 since May 12. Virtually every reliever's role has flopped since. Wasn't this last winter's priority? UP -- Non-waiver trade deadline It's Tuesday at 4 p.m. Do you know where your pending free agents are? UP -- Melvin Mora The hard-working center fielder/shortstop has quietly produced a solid season.
