The baseball season isn't over yet, but the fall television season has already begun with the networks rolling out a new lineup of shows. So in an effort to boost our ratings, Times staff writer Kevin Baxter takes a TV-themed look at the hits, misses and flops among MLB's 30 teams. (Statistics through Friday's game. Last week's rankings in parentheses.) *--* *--* *--* SOMEBODY'S GONNA WIN AN EMMY 1. BOSTON "Pawn Stars" Team turns discarded items (Victorino et al.) into gold (1)

The upper third of the eucalyptus trunks are beaten copper that has not been polished oh, for about three weeks. They will be this way for no more than 20 minutes; then the sun leaves the top leaves, the sky turns whitish before it turns darker and it is time to get out of the swimming pool. But I don't. It is warmer inside the pool now; decidedly cool air on my shoulders when I stand at the shallow end. But I don't stand. It is interesting to swim in shallow water.

That big bat the Angels craved for years finally materialized last July 29, when the team that always seemed reluctant to pull the trigger on a trade deadline deal acquired slugger Mark Teixeira from the Atlanta Braves. And what do the Angels have to show for it? Nothing, really. They led the major leagues with 100 wins and had a nice middle-of-the-order threat to pair with Vladimir Guerrero, but the Angels lost to the Boston Red Sox -- again -- in the first round of the playoffs.

A pop of coral can instantly take a simple summer item from plain to powerful, just by adding a splash of the fiery hue. From the real deal in jewelry containing the branch-like sea life to the imprint of its skeletal silhouette printed on sandals, mini-dresses and beaded maillots, coral in all forms is hitting stores in various pieces and in a refreshing range of prices.

Re "Playing the lunatic card," News Analysis, April 5 North Korea acts like it has nothing to lose - because it has nothing to lose. When you starve and horribly mistreat your own people, and when you keep repeating the same careless behavior and expect a different outcome, that is lunacy, pure and simple. We all know that lunacy can be dangerous and often lethal. The young and up-until-now untested North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will learn that his nuclear and long-range missile threats will have long-term consequences that will completely overwhelm his weak and undernourished nation.

Acclaimed experimental filmmaker Pat O'Neill is probably best known for his 1988 film "Water and Power," a quirkily ambitious look at the history of Southern California's water use. In a show titled "recent works, but not on film" at Gallery Luisotti, the L.A.-based filmmaker presents a new series of digitally manipulated Iris prints that prove to be as idiosyncratic as his movies, although not quite as fully engaging.

Is religious freedom under siege because of the ascendancy of the gay rights movement? That's literally an article of faith for some Christians. Supporters of gay rights in general and same-sex marriage in particular ridicule such alarms. My own view is that there are a small number of situations in which the 1st Amendment does entitle religious opponents of homosexuality or same-sex marriage to engage in what would otherwise be illegal discrimination. For example, I was sympathetic to the claim of the Christian Legal Society at the UC Hastings College of Law that it should be able to limit its leadership to students who assented to (and lived by)

Nancy Keyes met Santa Claus this week--on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. But when the 28-year-old Anaheim diver swam up to claim her Christmas present, Santa didn't give her anything from his soggy bag of goodies. "He said my hands were too full," Keyes, a computer instructor, lamented afterward. "I had a camera in one hand and I was trying to take pictures of him." Keyes was participating in one of Southern California's more unusual Yuletide celebrations.

The name of the hero in Martin Scorsese's "The King of Comedy" tells a lot about this overlooked gem. Rupert Pupkin . Say it loudly, and there's kazoo music playing. Say it softly, and it's still almost like braying. Rupert Pupkin is the name for a lightweight, a loser, a schnook, a nobody.
