I don't know what they have in Cuba. I don't know if it's Little Havana or what they got. But the boys know how to dress in Cuba and Danys Baez is keeping that tradition going.

The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired left-hander Doug Davis from Milwaukee yesterday in a six-player deal that sent catcher Johnny Estrada to the Brewers. Right-handers Greg Aquino and Claudio Vargas also went to Milwaukee, while the Diamondbacks obtained a pair of youngsters, left-hander Dana Eveland and outfielder Dave Krynzel. Davis, 31, is 62-63 with a 4.35 ERA in eight major league seasons. He was 11-11 with a 4.91 ERA in 34 starts last season with Milwaukee and, like Estrada, is arbitration-eligible.

IF FIDEL CASTRO wants to retain credibility as a baseball fan and sometime player, he will let Orlando Hernandez pitch again. Let his country's finest pitcher play the game in the window of youth still open.Orlando, the 28-year-old former star of the Cuban national team, is brother and mentor of Livan Hernandez, 22, who defected and helped the Florida Marlins reach the World Series, winning their first game. Treason, says Cuba's dictator. When Orlando was seen with the cousin of the agent who brokered Livan's get-away, that gentleman was clapped in prison and Orlando was banned from the game for life.

It was a night of memories for those who had yearned for baseball in Washington - Livan Hernandez's stalwart pitching, Vinny Castilla's double-triple-homer bonanza, a win in the first home game in 34 years. Or wait ... it was a night of memories for anyone lucky enough to have tickets to the Nationals' home opener at RFK Stadium or to live in the immediate vicinity of the District. For would-be Nationals fans living in nearby Anne Arundel and Howard counties, Thursday was a night of frustration, one on which a radio and a good imagination had to stand in for actually watching Washington's new baseball team defeat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 5-3. In fact, Nationals fans in the suburbs shared by Baltimore and Washington have hardly been able to see an inning this year.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Last year it was Curt Schilling vs. Roger Clemens. This year, Game 7 of the World Series will match Livan Hernandez against John Lackey. Who? After his team's thrilling 6-5 comeback victory in Game 6, Anaheim Angels manager Mike Scioscia announced he would start Lackey in the clincher instead of Ramon Ortiz, who has tendinitis in his right wrist. Lackey, a rookie, started Game 4 for the Angels and will be pitching on three days' rest. "With Ramon's wrist, I think we can use him at some point, but I don't know about the length," Scioscia said.
