VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Kevin Brown doesn't look any different. He still cuts his hair the same way. He still throws that wicked sinker. Still has that Southern drawl, and we're not talking Southern California."I'm the same guy," he says earnestly, as if that were possible.He still makes his home in Macon, Ga., but life definitely has changed since he pitched for the San Diego Padres in the World Series last October. He became a free agent and then became a lot of things he probably never imagined he would ever become.

I returned to my old community of West Baltimore, under the shadow of Bon Secours Hospital near the intersection of West Fayette and North Payson streets, to visit a native I had not seen for three decades. David Brown, who lived across the alley from me in the old neighborhood, had years ago opened a small store directly across from the sprawling hospital. The New Fayette Street Market & Deli is like a small fortress, with a Plexiglas bastion from which he can sell sundries and essentials in blackest night or brightest day. In one corner of his store is a small desk with two computers, which provide neighborhood kids with a window to a world far removed from the blasted buildings and broken streets of the community.

The price of poker already has gone up.Mike Piazza became the first superstar free agent to sign a long-term deal after the 1998 season, and his seven-year, $91 million contract with the New York Mets raised the stakes in this year's free-agent market before it even opened.Piazza signed within the window when clubs have exclusive rights to negotiate with the free agents who were under contract to them at the end of the '98 season.That restriction will be lifted Friday, and at that time baseball's annual player auction will begin in earnest.

On the field: An hour before last night's game, center fielder Curtis Goodwin stood in front of the left-field wall with a bat and bunted pitch after pitch from third base coach Steve Boros. Goodwin has been in a bunting slump, often moving toward first base before he actually makes contact with the pitch.In the dugout: Manny Alexander replaced Bret Barberie in the lineup last night, and don't be surprised if he plays tomorrow, either. Barberie is in an awful slump, getting just two hits in his last 32 at-bats.

A word of caution to those teaching their teenagers how to drive: Wait until they're the legal age and try an empty parking lot. Police say a 25-year-old woman did not heed that advice Tuesday when her 14-year-old niece crashed the van in which they were riding through a fence and plunged into Northeast Baltimore's Lake Montebello. The woman, who was teaching her niece how to drive, was handed citations that include knowingly permitting a child under 15 to drive a motor vehicle on a public road, and knowingly permitting a motor vehicle to be driven on a public road by an unlicensed person.

Kevin Brown knew he was hooked on crack cocaine. That was obvious each time he set off on another smoking binge. But Brown says he never imagined that he also suffered from a mental illness until he walked into Baltimore Behavioral Health Inc. A day or so after he went to the private, nonprofit Southwest Baltimore clinic in 2007 hoping to kick his drug habit, a psychiatrist diagnosed him with major depression. Soon, he was living in one of BBH's houses, taking antidepressants and spending hours each day in group therapy, half of it focused on mental illness.
