There's no question the Dodgers should have, at least, tried to acquire Tim Raines. But has anyone noticed that Jeffrey Leonard and Candy Maldonado, both ex-Dodgers, are hitting .332 and .333, respectively. That's right up there with Guerrero. Boy, if the Dodgers still had those guys they'd have one of the best outfields in the league. PAUL CERVANTES Canoga Park

After hitting his second home run of the night, the eventual game-winner, Seattle Mariners designated hitter Jeffrey Leonard, a creative dancer when it comes to home run trots, made his way around the bases rather inconspicuously. There was no flap--arm straight by his side, hand out--or sling--arm bent at his chest, fist closed. There was only Leonard trotting around the bases like anyone else would--dullsville. That is until Leonard made his way around third.

Free agent outfielder Jeffrey Leonard and relief pitcher Tom Niedenfuer agreed to 2-year, $1.75-million contracts with the Seattle Mariners Wednesday night.

Every hotdog has his day, but nobody in this city thought Jeffrey Leonard really deserved four of them. So, Tuesday evening the fans in the bleachers in Busch Stadium were ready for the San Francisco left fielder who claims he loves to be booed by road crowds and plays better when he taunts and is taunted. Every time No. 00 ran to his spot in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series, the signs rose to meet the four-homer star of these National League playoffs: 00-Nerd.

Baseball players bore easily, even the best of them, which is one reason today's World Series opener between the Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants won't be starting a minute too soon. In the interests of team unity and sanity, neither club can afford another day off. "We've got to start taking care of business," San Francisco first baseman Will Clark griped Friday. "That's been the problem--there's been no business the last four days."

The trophy sat on a ledge in his locker. Jeffrey Leonard, the Most Valuable Player in the National League playoffs, was asked what his thoughts will be when he looks at it. "I'll always be reminded that the better team lost," he said. "I still think we're the better team, but there's no rule that says the better team has to go." The St.

His and his team's performance in Game 7 of the National League playoffs tonight will determine if Jeffrey Leonard is selected the Most Valuable Player and rewarded with the $50,000 that his contract guarantees.

Talk about a bush stadium. The Bud-bellied baseball fans of St. Louis were all on Jeffrey Leonard's case. "Jeffff-rey! Jeffff-rey!" they heckled whenever the San Francisco slugger came to bat Wednesday at Busch Stadium, or when he took his position in left field. And worse stuff, too.

Chili Davis could hear it, too, from his seat in the San Francisco dugout, or from his spot in center field.
