NEW YORK -- The New York Mets and the Indians, who have exchanged contracts and proposals and one telephone call after another, might be on the verge of completing a deal that would send Bret Saberhagen to Cleveland.One executive involved in the talks last night called the deal "very much alive," and would not rule out the chance that the trade would be completed today.Executives at Shea Stadium, in fact, waited in their offices until late last night for a call from Cleveland general manager John Hart.

THEY ARE high school kids, playing on this Saturday morning amid the ping of aluminum bats and the sizzle of a backstop barbecue grill. Some fans sit next to the dugout in lawn chairs. Others sit behind home plate on a picnic table. There is no loudspeaker, no scorecards, no music other than the shrill cry of an upset dad. But make no mistake. When the Calabasas (Calif.) High Coyotes take the field, they want to look and act like major leaguers, even the most notorious of them. Check out their baseball pants.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Toronto Blue Jays are scouting Bret Saberhagen and are one of only a handful of teams with the resources necessary to trade for the New York Mets' very available pitcher.But while it sounds like a perfect fit, Toronto GM Pat Gillick said yesterday the Blue Jays' interest in Saberhagen is dwindling."There are some other things we're working on that are more palpable," Gillick said. "Nothing is imminent, but we're working on other things now."Toronto is interested in acquiring a starting pitcher but is believed to be focusing its efforts on Houston's Greg Swindell.

BOSTON -- It may be too late for the Orioles to alter the course of a 41-53 season. But for their signature and often star-crossed starting pitcher, the last several days may represent an opportunity to turn a merely excellent year into a historic one.Mike Mussina (13-4) pitched eight innings to take the 6-1 decision over the Boston Red Sox before 33,690 at Fenway Park, lifting the Orioles out of last place in the American League East. Only a day after being rear-ended in a traffic mishap, Mussina may have widened a sliver of opportunity to make the Cy Young Award race more than a coronation for Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- No one would blame Bob Milacki and Bret Saberhagen if they called in sick tonight.If the last three games between the Orioles and Royals are any indication, then tonight's game (8:35, Channel 2) won't be designed to improve the earned run averages of the starting pitchers.Those three games have taken a combined 13 hours and 43 minutes to play, lasted a total of 37 innings and produced 105 hits and 53 runs. Needless to say, the starting pitchers didn't enjoy much success.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Whatever worldly innocence that was left in the Saberhagen household was pretty much lost in the early evening of Dec. 11. That's when all of the many telephones took to ringing in their very new, very palatial home on a hillside overlooking the Sherwood Country Club in Ventura County, north of Los Angeles. Janeane Saberhagen answered the nearest one.After a moment's pause, she passed the handset to her husband, Bret, 27-year-old major-league pitcher, two-time Cy Young Award winner and, until that very moment, a loyal, dedicated and naive member of the Kansas City Royals family.

The last thing a team in a rut wants to come up against is a pitcher on a roll, but that's what awaits the Orioles tonight (7:35, HTS) in the person of Kansas City's Bret Saberhagen.The two-time Cy Young Award winner has not lost since April 29, garnering five wins in seven starts. During that stretch Saberhagen has a 2.17 ERA and has thrown three complete games. In fact, if you throw out Saberhagen's only two rough outings of the season, against New York early in April and Seattle last month, his ERA falls to 1.44.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- The winter meetings were drawing to a sleepy close last night when the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals shook the baseball world wide-awake.The Mets, continuing their dramatic restructuring, acquired two-time Cy Young Award winner Bret Saberhagen, 27, and infielder Bill Pecota, 31, for outfielder Kevin McReynolds, 32, infielder-outfielder Gregg Jefferies, 24, and infielder-outfielder Keith Miller, 28.The last in a series of deals consummated on the final full day of meetings at the Fontainebleau Resort rivals last year's trade between the San Diego Padres and Toronto Blue Jays -- Joe Carter and Roberto Alomar for Fred McGriff and Tony Fernandez -- as the biggest blockbuster in recent memory.

The Baltimore Orioles' road to respectability begins with their current homestand, a 10-gamer that represents their final extended stay at Memorial Stadium.And the Orioles launched it with a flourish last night, roughing up Bret Saberhagen for three home runs and a four-run eighth inning in a 6-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals.It was a pitched battle between Saberhagen and Mike Mussina until the eighth, when Sam Horn capped the decisive burst with a three-run homer just inside the left-field foul pole.

On Tuesday, he started his 16th straight All-Star Game. Last night, Cal Ripken could have become an easy way out for manager Jimy Williams and the Boston Red Sox. Except this time the Iron Man didn't bend.Foiling Williams' eighth-inning strategy that saw B. J. Surhoff intentionally walked to reach the Orioles' No. 7 hitter with two outs, Ripken looped an RBI single off Jim Corsi (2-1) to score Eric Davis for the decisive run in the Orioles' 3-2 win before 48,014 at Camden Yards. In the course of a 39-50 season that has consistently flogged the Orioles in close situations, Ripken's flare at least broke a crushing string of one-run losses.

Hull had been captain more than three seasons."He's just a hockey player now," Keenan said.

In helping the Rockies become the fastest expansion team ever to make the postseason, Baylor is considered one of the leading contenders for National League Manager of the Year.But Baylor has taken a great deal of criticism from the Denver media for the moves he has made in his team's divisional series against the Atlanta Braves, especially having to use a pitcher to pinch-hit in Colorado's 5-4 defeat in Game 1.Baylor was forced to use reliever Lance Painter to pinch-hit in the bottom of the ninth.

DETROIT -- The trade of Bret Saberhagen to the Red Sox was a promising possibility by midday and early evening yesterday, but sometime after that it was dying slowly as the Red Sox and the Mets couldn't quite agree on a package. There was still time before the midnight deadline to get a deal done, but time, as they say, was not on Boston's side."It's one of those situations where the Mets could phone us at 11:30 or midnight and say, 'OK, let's do it,' " said Red Sox CEO John Harrington at 8:30 last night.
