NEW YORK -- New York Yankees manager Joe Torre again has been forced to let Mother Nature make his pitching plans, which appears to put his club at a disadvantage in the rain-delayed 92nd World Series.The storm that washed out Game 1 last night will make both teams play through tomorrow's travel day, leaving Torre no alternative but to use struggling left-hander Kenny Rogers to pitch Game 4 at Atlanta/Fulton County Stadium. The delay appears to work in favor of the Atlanta Braves, since manager Bobby Cox already planned to go with four starting pitchers.

Beware in Philly, Bronx Bill Kline The Morning Call When they say 99.9 percent of baseball fans are nice, they aren't talking about New York and Philadelphia. True, alcohol makes louts out of most of us. But when you couple booze with the ornery disposition most fans in those cities acquire by kindergarten, the combination is combustible. If you want trouble in New York or Philly, just pop on the visiting team's cap, settle into your seat, duck and cover.

ANALYSIS THE YANKEES have the home-field advantage in the best-of-seven series, but the importance of the early games at Yankee Stadium is even more magnified by the pitching alignment of the Mets. They'll use strong left-handers Al Leiter and Mike Hampton in Games 1 and 2, which will leave the rotation soft for the first two games at Shea Stadium. The Mets have to split the first two in the Bronx to have a chance to exploit their decided statistical advantage at Shea. They really need to win the first two to have a real good chance of winning the World Series -- and that's a tall order.
