When we predicted with such assurance that the Angels and Dodgers would have competitive seasons, we probably forgot to mention that the season was spring. No matter. Baseball went on without the slightest regard for clubhouse revolts on Gene Autry Way or gross insubordination in Chavez Ravine. Indeed, local entrants aside, the game thrived. Now begin the playoffs, and reporter Tim Brown has more predictions to make. National League Houston Astros vs.

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.

Think the Cleveland Indians hit bottom when they lost the American League pennant to the New York Yankees? Think again.

Yankee Manager Joe Torre continued to play musical left fielders Tuesday night, starting Ricky Ledee in Game 6 after playing Shane Spencer, Chad Curtis and Tim Raines there in the first five games. Spencer, Curtis and Raines combined to go one for 19. "I figured, why not?" Torre said. "It could go one way or another. He's a young guy, and whatever he gives us is a bonus. I've tried everyone else out in left field, I just thought we would give it a shot." Ledee went 0 for 4.

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 game began in a heavy mist, and at times both teams played as if in a haze, but it was the Cleveland Indians who were finally left in the dust Tuesday night, flattened by a runaway subway train known as the 1998 New York Yankees. With a crowd of 57,142 making Yankee Stadium literally tremble with excitement, closer Mariano Rivera put the finishing touches on a 9-5 American League championship series Game 6 victory that clinched the Yankees' 35th pennant.

The big question around Yankee Stadium is, who will the Yankees pitch if they lose tonight and the series goes to a seventh game? Would they stick with their playoff rotation and send out Andy Pettitte, who was timidly hammered in Game 3 and has a 5.40 earned-run average in the postseason? Or would they go with Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez on three days' rest after his brilliant seven shutout innings in Game 4? The big answer around Yankee Stadium is, there will be no seventh game.
