The Dodgers' first choice in the amateur player draft Tuesday was left-handed pitcher Aaron Miller, 21, who just completed his junior year at Baylor. "I couldn't be more ecstatic," Miller said. "I was kind of crossing my fingers. I came home from L.A. yesterday and was really hoping that I would get picked up." At 6 feet 3 and 200 pounds, Miller also was a power-hitting outfielder at Baylor.

Aaron Miller was surprised and saddened by reports that a black freshman had faced weeks of racial harassment by some of his white roommates in a San Jose State University dorm. The alleged abuse was poles apart from Miller's own experience as a black student on the diverse campus. "It was awful to believe that something like that could happen on a campus where I had felt so welcome, loved and supported," said Miller, 20, a junior majoring in political science. But with three white students charged with hate crimes and a fourth suspended from school, the San Jose State campus has been forced to confront the possibility that racial and ethnic relations may not be as smooth as once thought.

The Dodgers took Jacksonville right-hander Chris Anderson with their first pick Thursday in Major League Baseball's annual amateur draft, which might leave fans wondering how the team's most recent top picks are faring. So here you go: As they did today, last season the Dodgers had the 18th overall pick, and used it to select Corey Seager, a North Carolina high school shortstop. Seager is playing for the club's Class-A affiliate at Great Lakes in the Midwest League, and he is batting .256.

Defenseman Aaron Miller of the Kings was awarded a two-year, $3.3-million contract Monday by an arbitrator, sources said. Miller, acquired last February in the trade that sent all-star defenseman Rob Blake to the Colorado Avalanche, will be paid $1.6 million for the 2001-02 season and $1.7 million for the 2002-03 season after earning $900,000 last season. "We're very happy with the award," his agent, Lewis Gross, said from New York. Miller, 30, is expected to sign a contract this week.

King defenseman Aaron Miller practiced Monday with contact for the first time since sustaining a pinched nerve in his neck and shoulder area Dec. 10. Miller has been cleared to play, but needs work on conditioning. "I feel like I've got a piano on my back," he said after practice. "Coming back from 11 weeks, you're going to be a little tired." Miller could play this week, although Coach Andy Murray reserved judgment on an exact date for Miller's return.

Defenseman Aaron Miller, concerned about his back, has withdrawn from the United States hockey team that will play in the Winter Olympics at Turin, Italy. Miller informed Team USA officials last week. "I need to use the time for my health," said Miller, who played in the 2002 Olympics. "The Kings come first." Miller, 34, has had back problems for a couple of years. He has sat out 16 games this season and needed a series of anti-inflammatory injections to get back into the lineup.

The Kings have suffered a loss every bit as significant as their 7-0 defeat Wednesday to the Edmonton Oilers. As it turns out, defenseman Aaron Miller has a badly sprained left wrist and will be sidelined indefinitely. Miller was injured in the third period of the Kings' 6-2 victory Monday over the Phoenix Coyotes. He managed to make it through that game and gave it a try Wednesday. But he played ineffectively in the first period and called it a night. "I can't shoot or pass," Miller said.

On the eve of tonight's home game against NHL scoring leader Mario Lemieux and the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Kings learned Friday that they could be without one of their top defensemen for a month or more. Aaron Miller, who sat out the season's first 13 games after abdominal surgery, is expected to be sidelined four to six weeks after suffering a broken left foot in the third period of Wednesday night's 3-0 victory over the Dallas Stars.

Ethan Martin and Aaron Miller slumped on a bench in the third base dugout at an empty Clear Channel Stadium in Lancaster, hoping to escape the near-100-degree desert heat. It was only a pause, they both hoped, on their way to Dodger Stadium, only 70 miles up the freeway. But for the two former first-round draft picks, still trying to find their way with Inland Empire of the Class-A California League, the majors must have seemed light years away. After a week in which the Dodgers heralded the signing of their latest first-round draft choice, Texas high school pitcher Zach Lee, while the Washington Nationals were giving a record bonus to Nevada teenager Bryce Harper, the No. 1 overall pick, the stories of Miller and Martin offer a cautionary tale.

If Superman is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, why can't he make free throws? . . . Dwight Howard might hear about it from Shaquille O'Neal, the original brick-tossing Superman, who actually shot slightly better from the foul line than Howard did this season. . . . To paraphrase an old country song, Lakers fans don't love Derek Fisher anymore, but they don't love him any less. . . . Not after Game 4. . . .

His patriotic heart said yes. His competitive nature said yes. But his mind and body said no. And his wife said no way. For reasons ranging from fear for his safety during the war in Iraq to uneasiness about putting his tender midsection through another month of high-stress wear and tear, King defenseman Aaron Miller declined USA Hockey's invitation to play in the World Championships starting April 26 in Finland.

After defenseman Aaron Miller had scored his first two goals for the Kings in Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Mighty Ducks, the second in overtime, it was noted on the telecast that he had started his career as a winger. Not exactly, Miller said with a laugh before Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre.

Aaron Miller signed a four-year contract extension with the Kings on Monday, in what could be the first and perhaps most influential of several moves by the club in the final hours before today's noon NHL trading deadline. The veteran defenseman, the most prominent of four Kings eligible for unrestricted free agency this summer, signed a $14-million deal, nearly identical to the $14.5-million contract signed by teammate Mattias Norstrom in September. Miller, 31, is being paid $1.

Aaron Miller said Monday that he and the Kings were "relatively close" to agreement on a new contract, but added that several sticking points need to be ironed out. If they're not, he added, he probably will be traded before the deadline March 11. "[Negotiating] never has been easy for me," said Miller, who is being paid $1.7 million this season in the last year of a two-year, $3.3-million contract he won in arbitration. "In 10 years, it's been arbitrations and last-minute signings.
