Angel General Manager Bill Bavasi left Edison Field Friday night thinking he had a trade in place to send pitcher Chuck Finley to the Cleveland Indians. But when Saturday night's game against the Minnesota Twins began, there was Finley, the 6-foot-6 left-hander, the 14-year veteran who has been an Angel institution, seemingly an Angel for eternity, on the Edison Field mound, receiving a warm ovation from a crowd of 37,011. Finley isn't going anywhere. At least, not this season.

Investors cheered Thursday when the majority owner of Cleveland Indians Baseball Co. put his team up for sale. The stock, which had languished well below June's $15 offering price, soared $6.31 to close at $16.25 on Nasdaq, getting initial investors out of the red--at least on paper.

Think the Cleveland Indians hit bottom when they lost the American League pennant to the New York Yankees? Think again. On Wednesday, a day after Indians shortstop Omar Vizquel grounded out to end the American League championship series, the stock of Cleveland's parent company sank to a new low of $5.38 before closing at $5.63, down 25 cents, on Nasdaq.

Asked this week whether he had dreams about Game 6 of the American League Championship Series, David Cone allowed that, well, yes, it sounds crazy, but he had one. "Horses," he said. "I want to see the horses." At 19 minutes before midnight here Tuesday, he got his horses. Huge, police-saddled animals that pranced on to the Yankee Stadium warning track to strains of "New York, New York." Giant pin-striped players who trampled over the Cleveland Indians while winning the American League pennant.

The morality play that has become the American League championship series continued Monday, with so much wailing and gnashing of reputations, you'd have thought somebody lost another baseball. But this time it was the Cleveland Indians. And this time, apparently, they have lost their minds. On a day when they were supposed to be resting, David Justice ran his mouth, Mike Hargrove was chased down from behind, and common sense took a flying leap.

Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez was asked Friday if he'd ever pitched in colder weather, and when the New York Yankee right-hander said he played in Ireland and Italy, you could almost hear the snickers in the interview room, as if pitching against a bunch of amateurs in Europe would prepare him for the mighty Cleveland Indians.
