Jay Bell, batting .128, hit a three-run pinch triple that capped a five-run seventh inning Thursday as Pittsburgh defeated the New York Mets, 10-8, for the Pirates' first three-game sweep in New York in eight years. Bell tripled off relief ace Randy Myers as the Pirates, who wasted a 5-0 first-inning lead, won their fifth consecutive game. "We needed something like that," Bell said. "They are a great team, and this is something we can build on."

I would like to begin by informing you I voted for Sen. John McCain in 2008, but we've had these discussions about honesty before. Still, I've always had a soft spot for the old coot, but the man who brought us Sarah Palin now may have finally gone too far. Linking to a provincial post in the Arizona Republic with the headline “The Dodgers are idiots,” the good senator has taken time out from dressing down Vladimir Putin and trying...

Jay Bell smiles, shrugs, lifts his hands in a gesture of futility and says there is no way to explain it, other than to call it an oddity. "I'm just in one of those stretches," he says. An oddity? One of those stretches? What he means is, finding his name at or near the top of the list of major league home run leaders is at odds with the conventional wisdom that suggests it would be Albert Belle, not Jay Bell.

Now that the tantrums have ceased, the booing quieted and the lineup re-aligned to please him, there's still the matter of the big guy and his slump. Or, when will the pop of George Bell's bat equal that of his mouth? His slump has gone on so long and looked so bad at times that, in this city where fans sometimes wait two hours to buy an outfield seat 600 feet from home plate, he has begun to get the Eddie Murray treatment: Is he too fat? Can he see the ball?

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Tampa Bay Devil Rays draft the nucleus of their first teams today, but the Diamondbacks got a head start Monday, lavishing $34 million on free-agent shortstop Jay Bell. The five-year stunner reawakened concern that the expansion teams won't hesitate to further inflate an inflated market.

Angel pitching problems in the second half of the season have received most of the attention, but of almost equal concern over the final three weeks of an already successful summer and for 1986 is the absence of a dependable bat, an everyday run producer. Kansas City has George Brett. Toronto has George Bell. New York has Don Mattingly, Dave Winfield and a cast of thousands. The Angels?

Sid Bream hit two homers and drove in four runs and Bobby Bonilla homered today in the Pittsburgh Pirates' 8-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Jay Bell had three hits and scored once and Andy Van Slyke, continuing his hot exhibition hitting, went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI. Van Slyke, coming off a disappointing .237 season, is batting .423.
