Sifting through the tens of thousands of words that have been spoken and written about Brian Mullan over the past week or so, two conclusions are inescapable. The first is that Mullan is not the devil that he is being made out to be. The second is that he should retire right now from Major League Soccer. Had he done so 10 days ago, he would have been remembered as an aggressive, ball-winning midfielder who won five MLS titles, one with the Galaxy, one the San Jose Earthquakes, two with the Houston Dynamo and a fifth last season with the Colorado Rapids.

Joe Torre New York Yankees manager, on being on the hot seat "Right now, this is the phone call preceding the date. The phone call can go good, the phone call can go bad.

When the Mariners' Felix Hernandez received a phone call in Venezuela telling him he had won the American League Cy Young Award, he told the Seattle Times he did something he hasn't done in a while. He burst into tears. "I don't have any words to explain how I feel," he said. "I mean, you cannot explain it. The first time I heard I won the Cy Young, my mind was, 'Really? Really?' And they said, 'Yes, you won the Cy Young.' "And I started crying. And my wife jumped on me. And my whole family started jumping around the house.

And now a word from my colleagues. To piece together my mock draft version 2.0, I simulated a draft by calling, in order, newspaper writers who cover the first-round teams on a daily basis. Some results were surprising. Center Maurkice Pouncey went earlier than I expected, USC's Taylor Mays and Everson Griffen fell out of the first round and Dez Bryant was the only receiver chosen. Scribes, you are on the clock: 1. Rams: QB Sam Bradford, Oklahoma. (pick by Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

A fashionable pick when spring training began, the Mariners are trending badly at the time things are turning serious. Perhaps this is to be expected, for a variety of reasons. They improved by 24 victories last season, the first for general manager Jack Zduriencik and manager Don Wakamatsu to work together. History says teams that improve that much from one season to the next rarely win more games the next year. Also, the Mariners won 85 games but weren't really an 85-win team.

SEATTLE -- U.S. Sen. Brock Adams abruptly dropped his re-election campaign yesterday and announced an end to a 31-year political career after a newspaper published the stories of eight unnamed women who accused him of 20 years of persistent physical assaults, sexual harassment and misbehavior.One political activist told the Seattle Times that Mr. Adams drugged and raped her. Two other accusers said that Mr. Adams molested them after drugging them or offering them a suspicious drink.None of the cases was reported to the police, and the newspaper said that it had departed from its standards in the use of unidentified sources because its 3 1/2 -year investigation uncovered allegations that pointed to a pattern of "abuses of power and women."

An officer on patrol arrived a few minutes later and spotted the gunman standing outside the house with a shotgun.
