It was the feel-good story of the Ravens' victory over the New York Jets — other than the victory itself, of course. Rookie tight end Ed Dickson found out just hours before the game that he was about to become a father a little earlier than expected, which left him with quite a decision to make about his NFL debut on "Monday Night Football. " Should I stay or should I go? The correct answer might seem obvious to some — family first, football second — but the question was not that simple, especially for a young player who had yet to play a down at the professional level.

VERO BEACH, Fla. - No sign of Sandy Koufax in Dodgertown yesterday. The tall lefty has made up his mind, and everyone who knows him figures the decision will stand. You could see hard-working Maury Wills conducting bunting drills on a small practice diamond called Maury's Pit. You could see Tommy Lasorda buzzing down Tommy Lasorda Drive in his golf cart, yapping with fans and reporters. You could see palm trees surrounding the acres of practice fields that make up Dodgertown, a huge former air base that the Dodgers have called their spring training home since 1948.

HI, I'M DODGERS manager Tommy Lasorda and here's a picture of me taken just a few short months ago. Pretty gross, huh? Look at that gut! Geez, put a shirt on! Is that enough to make you sick or what?But that's all changed thanks to Ultra Trim Fast. Now I look great and feel terrific. Well, not too bad. I have my ups and downs, which is understandable when you lose 87 pounds in eight days or whatever."How does the program work? With Ultra Trim Fast, I have a delicious shake for breakfast and another for lunch, then a sensible meal for dinner -- large pepperoni pizza and a pint of Breyer's chocolate sounds about right.

This year's benefit, the eighth annual, took up most of the second floor at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore. For most of the guests, the evening began at 7 p.m. with a Fair Fest, at which they could sample heart-healthy tidbits from 44 national food vendors.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - During the four decades that they existed as the unattractive sibling in the Southern California baseball market, the Anaheim Angels worked hard to create their own identity and emerge from the successful shadow of the Los Angeles Dodgers. No one would come right out and admit it, but it was generally understood that the Angels suffered from something of an organizational inferiority complex. They rankled at the notion that only the rich team up the freeway really knew how to do things right and that the Dodgers' national reputation as a "first-class" franchise somehow relegated the Angels to perpetual second-class status.

He wonders, too."If one day I pronounce I'm back as far as the form of 1985 or 1988 . . . that's such a huge statement," the Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander said Wednesday during a 3-0 loss to Montreal. "I don't know if that would happen.

Who's not: The Pirates, woeful in so many ways, are 3-15 in afternoon home day games, losing 11 in a row, and were outscored 30-7 in three day games during a just-completed 1-6 homestand.
