The longest month of Jesse Barfield's playing career is winding down. Just 10 more games on the road and he hopes to be settling down somewhere in New Jersey with his wife and three young children. "Living out of suitcases is overrated," Barfield said as he packed his belongings for the trip Thursday that landed him in Anaheim. He was in Anaheim with the Toronto Blue Jays, the last day of a week's trip to the West Coast, when he was traded to the New York Yankees on April 30. It was off to New York for two days.

Yankee outfielder Jesse Barfield became the latest player to throw a ball in anger, hitting the elevated subway tracks that stand behind the right-field fence at Yankee Stadium on Thursday. After fans in the right-field seats threw Wally Joyner's fifth-inning home run back onto the field, Barfield picked it up and threw it out of the stadium. "It was a culmination of me not doing my job offensively and them doing the job of kicking our butts," Barfield said after the Angels' 7-0 victory.

If someone on the New York Mets or New York Yankees had hit 66 home runs in a little over a year and a half, and had driven in 108 runs the year before, he'd probably be the subject of three or more paperbacks. He would have been on "The Today Show" a half a dozen times, been on subway cards advertising everything from shoe polish to chewing gum, and been a recognizable silhouette in every house that had a color TV set.

Jesse Barfield, mired in a two-year batting slump, was traded by the Toronto Blue Jays to the New York Yankees Sunday for left-hander Al Leiter. It was the first trade by Toronto General Manager Pat Gillick since Aug. 31, 1987, when the Blue Jays sent pitchers Jose Mesa and Oswald Peraza to Baltimore for left-hander Mike Flanagan. Barfield had his best season in 1986 when he hit .289 with a league-leading 40 home runs and 108 runs batted in. "It's a shock," Barfield said in Anaheim, where the Blue Jays were playing the Angels.

It was 63 degrees when the American League's championship series opened on the often frozen artificial tundra of Exhibition Stadium Tuesday night. The box score would suggest that the unseasonable weather was accompanied by an uncharacteristically warm performance by the Toronto Blue Jay hitters.

Jesse Barfield is leading the major leagues in home runs and outfield assists. He'd trade them for moving Toronto into first place in the American League East. Barfield hit his 38th and 39th homers and got his 20th assist Wednesday night as the Blue Jays' Jimmy Key and Tom Henke stopped the New York Yankees on a six-hitter, 3-0, at New York. "(But) second place would be better than third," Barfield admitted after the Blue Jays moved within a half-game of the second-place Yankees.

Manager Bobby Cox can't help dreaming about the Toronto Blue Jays winning the pennant, but he knows it's much too early to talk about it. Rance Mulliniks and Ernie Whitt each drove in three runs Saturday at Cleveland to lead the soaring Blue Jays to a 10-7 victory, their sixth in a row. In the six games, the Blue Jays have scored 43 runs. The Blue Jays trailed, 7-6, going into the seventh, but Whitt singled in the tying run and hot-hitting Jesse Barfield singled in the go-ahead run.
