QUOTES OF THE WEEK
?"I look at the Dodgers and see guys like Reggie Williams, Jose Gonzalez, Jeff Hamilton.... It looks like a Triple A team. Those guys never would have played for the Dodgers a few years ago."—Mets third baseman Ray Knight.
"Maybe it is true, after so much media fuss has been made of my tantrums on and off the mound, that I am much nicer to be near. Maybe too nice. Reggie Jackson of the Angels, for one, and a host of my concerned teammates have suggested this is so.

"By popular demand, they want him back. Anything to oblige, I always say. Mothers be warned, henceforth, to keep the little ones far from the TV set when the camera zooms in on my pantomime after yet another seeing-eye, blooper, broken-bat, 'tweener falls in.
