His unsettled status is such a preoccupation that the Cincinnati Reds called a news conference to announce they are not going to trade for him.It was the second time that Reds general manager Jim Bowden has made a non-announcement in the past six weeks. He did essentially the same thing in a more informal setting at the general managers meetings in Laguna Niguel, Calif., in November."The Reds have pulled out," Bowden said.

The tributes to Jackie Robinson all over major league baseball today are too much, some say. The skeptics don't mean that in a negative way. It's touching for six entire major league teams to wear his No. 42 today, and for members of all the other teams, like the Orioles' Corey Patterson, to be wearing it. But isn't this overkill? Doesn't this water down the tribute? Doesn't it make it a trendy act instead of an act of respect? "Jackie Robinson would be rolling over in his grave," Twins outfielder Torii Hunter said on ESPN late last week, expressing his conviction that with this tribute, less is more.

SEATTLE -- Don't expect Ken Griffey Jr. to be in the Mariners' lineup for the next few days, and he'll be without his Ferrari for considerably longer than that.The Seattle Mariners' 22-year-old All-Star center fielder was fitted with a neck brace late yesterday afternoon, just hours after he was rear-ended by an unlicensed 15-year-old on Coal Creek Parkway near Interstate 405. Griffey did not play in the game last night against the Cleveland Indians in the Kingdome."It's a day-to-day thing and not serious," Mariners manager Bill Plummer said before tonight's game against the Orioles.
