Quote: "It's a good environment, and you can tell it lights a fire under our fans, too.

For 10 years, Chuck Schupp has been manager of baseball promotions for Hillerich & Bradsby, the Kentucky company that turns out Louisville Slugger bats. He talked about his customers' swinging habits with The Sun's Mark Hyman.Q: How many bats does a major-leaguer order for a season?A: To answer that, you'd have to separate what's ordered from what's used in a game. As far as ordering, the average would be 10 dozen, and probably 50 to 60 percent of those would be used in a game. The ones that aren't -- maybe it doesn't have the right feel or doesn't feel balanced to them -- are used for batting practice or charity donations.

The New York Mets have fallen asleep, dead asleep. They wake up for a few minutes at the end of each game to remind us that it's a long season, plenty of baseball left, relax, don't worry. The next time we see them they're back on the ballfield, snoring.Shea Stadium -- where the Mets play the Pirates today -- hasn't been this quiet, this tame, in about a decade. This is the worst part of it: The fans are being put to sleep, too.The notion that the Mets have lots of time to straighten themselves out is probably accurate, and downright foolish.

Those three "wise men," known as Selig, Harrington & Fehr, are hoping to return baseball to its earthly state. They ride not on the backs of camels nor follow a star in the heavens. It's the money machine that drives them.Still another meeting is scheduled this week between the owners of the major-league teams and the Major League Baseball Players Association. If a settlement is reached, they'll describe it as a "Christmas present for the fans." Believe that and you deserve to be institutionalized, taken off to a padded cell where you won't be a danger to yourself or the lives of others.

Timing is everything, especially when signing major free agents. Rafael Palmeiro is a better fit for the Orioles than he was a month ago. For that, we can thank Palmeiro's good friend, Will Clark.It would have been different if Palmeiro had signed first and received a more lucrative contract. But both the Orioles and Texas preferred Clark, triggering the impulse that has motivated Palmeiro his entire career.Strange as it might sound, Palmeiro now has something to prove -- even though he's coming off a 37-homer, 105-RBI season, and is expected to sign a five-year deal with the Orioles similar to the one the Rangers gave Clark.
