Florida Marlin outfielder Jim Eisenreich is widely regarded as one of the nicest men in baseball, but the Dodgers can't stand him. It's nothing personal, it's simply that he tears up the Dodger pitching staff. Eisenreich, who played the last four seasons for the Philadelphia Phillies, has a lifetime .430 batting average against the Dodgers. And last season, he hit .468 against them. That's why the Dodgers tried hard to acquire Eisenreich in a trade before the Sept.

The guy in Toronto had leaned over the railing and screamed, "Hey, are you nervous now?" Jim Eisenreich had to laugh at that. He'd been sent up to pinch-hit during a close game against Toronto, and now this fan was yelling what fans before him had yelled in places like Minneapolis, Memphis and Charlotte.

He doesn't want it or need it, but he's going to get it. An apology, to Jim Eisenreich, on behalf of decent Dodger fans everywhere. For those fools who recently heckled him from the stands. The Dodger Stadium stands. Seems they found something funny in their new outfielder's tics. "Hey, no big deal, it happens in every park," Eisenreich said, smiling, sort of. "Yeah, even my home park." To those who jeered, or are thinking about jeering, there is something you should know.

In the game of baseball, "playing hurt" usually means taking the field with a sore ankle or a pulled muscle, maybe a swollen gland or even a hangover. But there have been players in the grand old game who give new meaning to the catch phrase. In the wake of the Cal Ripken Jr. dramatics of recent vintage, there was this TV segment about his streak's predecessor, Lou Gehrig.

Fred Claire has handled scores of deals during his tenure in charge of Dodger player personnel. The longtime executive vice president has made trades big and small--good and bad. But during the past decade, Claire's stamp has been on every deal the Dodgers have done. Until the biggest in franchise history. Claire acknowledged Friday night that he wasn't the point man on the seven-player deal that sent all-star catcher Mike Piazza to the Florida Marlins.

Now that Dodger fans have been dragged kicking and screaming into the modern baseball era, it's interesting to see how they react. Some of them seem to be taking out their frustrations on poor Bill Plaschke, whose only offense as far as I can see is writing honest, objective columns instead of same old sugar-coated "true Dodger blue" stuff we've been fed for 40 years. Speaking as a baseball fan first and a Dodger fan second, I find his columns insightful, interesting and mostly right on target.

Hideo Nomo had just been traded for two New York bodies that couldn't elicit mania from a maniac. Todd Hollandsworth had just been found to have a possible season-ending shoulder injury, their third rookie of the year to leave the dugout in the last three weeks. The unsteady Dodgers were teetering, teetering, teetering toward another embarrassing crash into another light pole Thursday evening. When Jose Vizcaino stood up. Right there in the dugout, in the ninth inning against the St.

The Dodgers finally got the guy they wanted on May 15, acquiring Jim Eisenreich in a blockbuster trade. Of course, they also had to take Gary Sheffield, Charles Johnson, Bobby Bonilla and Manuel Barrios to get the deal done. But such is the cost of doing business with the Florida Marlins, who are trying to become the first major league franchise without a payroll. "It feels good to be the key to the trade," Eisenreich said, jokingly. "There aren't a lot of 39-year-old guys who can say that."

Jim Eisenreich is ready to join the Dodgers, but they're not sure they want him. At least not at the current price. Talks are ongoing between the Dodgers and Florida Marlins about Eisenreich, who plays the infield and outfield. Fred Claire, executive vice president, believes Eisenreich could provide the left-handed consistency the Dodgers' have lacked, and Marlin General Manager Dave Dombrowski is being forced to slash the team's $33-million payroll by more than half.
