Baseball is a game of comparison, so it was inevitable St. Louis Cardinals star Scott Rolen would begin to hear his name mentioned with the greatest players who ever took a sharp one-hopper off the chest at third base. Brooks Robinson? Rolen is a bigger offensive threat and has a stronger arm. Mike Schmidt? Rolen is a more talented defensive player. The whole package? Well, that's why they have sports talk shows. You could argue best-ever third baseman all night. No one who saw Robinson in the 1970 World Series is going to defer to a seven-year veteran.

So we finally got around to putting up our Christmas tree the other night and I found myself smacked by the rush of the season. As a kid, I loved popping the doors to the Advent calendar in a frenzied countdown to Christmas morning. But as an adult, I get sidetracked on the other aspects - finishing projects at work, the logistics of entertaining, the gift hunt for that person who staunchly refuses to want anything. And yes, I really am going to write about fantasy sports here. I'm belatedly grasping for the joyous strains of the season.

Quote: "I really don't have a hell of a lot to say. I don't want to talk about it. You guys can write your own story today. I will not talk about the game. I just don't want to talk." - manager Gene Lamont said after the Pirates lost on an error in the ninth, falling 17 games below .500 for the first time this season. It's a fact: The Mets have at least one homer in 18 of their past 26 games and 27 overall in that span. Who's hot: The Giants' 39-18 home record at Pacific Bell Park is best in the majors.

JUPITER, Fla. - St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa knows all about perception and reality, which is why he isn't ready to go quietly into third place in the National League Central. The Cardinals were the team to beat last spring, but they finished third in a tight three-team race that was won by a team that had the 14th-best record in the league the year before. "In 2000, the Reds got [Ken] Griffey and the only thing everyone wanted to know is how many games they were going to win by," La Russa said.

Woody Williams probably will get a shot at starting in the NL Championship Series for the St. Louis Cardinals after missing the Division Series with a pulled muscle in his left side. Williams threw 20-25 pitches from the mound Sunday, the day after the Cardinals completed their first-round sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and played catch yesterday. He could get a start as early as Game 2 of the NLCS on Thursday night. Manager Tony La Russa said the team would wait until tomorrow, the morning of Game 1, before making its roster final for the second round of the playoffs.
