CINCINNATI -- Mike Devereaux watched the Atlanta Braves via superstation TBS in the early months of this season, as amember of the Chicago White Sox, and the Braves' resiliency would make him shake his head in wonder.

Baltimore's chances of luring the Bengals from Cincinnati appeared to diminish yesterday, when team vice president Mike Brown softened his stadium demands in a meeting with new Cincinnati Mayor Roxanne Qualls.Brown told the mayor he would be willing to stay in Cincinnati for several years without an ironclad commitment for a new stadium if the city would "invest in our future" with short-term financial help, he told the Cincinnati Enquirer after the meeting.Brown wouldn't publicly specify what he wanted, but he termed his new request a "bridging agreement" to cover the period of "some years" the city would need to fully develop a new stadium plan.

Cincinnati Bengals president Mike Brown said yesterday that he's "worried more now than ever" about being able to keep the NFL team in its home of 27 years and probably will visit Baltimore to see what's available.He'll be following in the footsteps of another team interested in Baltimore: Los Angeles Raiders managing partner Al Davis made a secret visit to the city several weeks ago."We now know a new football stadium is not in the cards in Cincinnati. Riverfront Stadium is inadequate to protect our future, and we are going to talk with the people in Baltimore about their interest," Brown said in a written statement.

Cincinnati Bengals president Mike Brown said for the first time yesterday that he no longer believes a football stadium will be built in Cincinnati, prompting speculation that he may move the team after the 1995 season.Brown is frustrated that the city hasn't taken steps to get funding for a new stadium since he announced last month that his lease at Riverfront Stadium was breached by a late payment."The answer may be in," Brown told reporters in Cincinnati. "It probably means there isn't going to be a new football stadium in Cincinnati.

CINCINNATI -- Eric Davis has spent much of the last seven summers in the Riverfront Stadium outfield. He knows the walls and corners and warning track like a homeowner knows which doors creak.So it was quite a surprise last night when, in the seventh inning of a tie game in the opener of the National League Championship Series, the Cincinnati Reds' leftfielder misplayed a drive by Pittsburgh's Andy Van Slyke, turning it into an RBI ground-rule double that gave the Pittsburgh Pirates a 4-3 victory over Cincinnati.

CINCINNATI -- Parked like a giant flying saucer on the banks of the Ohio River, Riverfront Stadium really is a visitor from another world. Or at least another age.Built for a thrifty $44 million in 1970, it was a marvel of engineering: a versatile, if ugly, structure that could play host to a Sunday afternoon football game and, with the toss of a couple of switches, be reconfigured for a baseball game less than 12 hours later.The tenants -- the Reds and Bengals -- compromised on scheduling, shared some revenues and signed leases that guaranteed the taxpayers a decent return on their investment.

CINCINNATI -- The dog did it.The Cincinnati Reds are so draped in history that it's hard to believe the credibility of the entire organization could be cast into doubt by one silly looking St. Bernard.But there it was, right in the 1986 media guide, a half page (with photo) devoted to Schottzie, right there in front of the club vice presidents and everything. The owner's dog had a front-office job. Had the Cincinnati Reds -- one of the charter members of the National League way back in 1876 -- really come to this?

CINCINNATI -- The thinking was that once a game became a battle of the bullpens, the Cincinnati Reds would rule the National League Championship Series.But it turned out just the opposite last night when three relievers shut down the Reds for the final three innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates nicked Norm Charlton for a seventh-inning run to capture the series opener, 4-3, at Riverfront Stadium.Charlton had been starting since mid-July, but he returned to the Cincinnati relief corps for the playoffs, joining forces with "Nasty Boys" Rob Dibble and Randy Myers.
