Orlando Cabrera watched Tim Wakefield's knuckleball weave through the air. It fluttered slowly to the left, then right, then left again -- all on a single pitch. Cabrera held only a baseball bat when he could have used a butterfly net. "I look at him and just smile," Oakland's shortstop and Wakefield's teammate on Boston's 2004 championship team said. "I'm like, 'I can't hit that. Keep throwing it. I can't hit that.' " So many hitters have the same problem that, finally, in his 17th major league season and 15th with the Red Sox, the pitcher with the calm demeanor and quirky pitch is headed for his first All-Star game Tuesday in St. Louis.

Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press writing on Piston veteran Joe Dumars, who will retire after the season: "He never held out. He never demanded a trade. He never said things like, 'This is my house.' "He never got into trouble. He never showed up drunk or high. He never yelled at reporters, invented a dance, choked his coach, or went AWOL from the team. "He came to work. Did what was asked." Comment: A very unusual player.

Wade Boggs resumed his quest for 3,000 career hits Friday night when the Tampa Bay Devil Rays activated him from the 15-day disabled list. Boggs, sidelined since May 6 because of a strained left hamstring, was batting .276 when he went on the disabled list for the second time in his 18-year career. Boggs is 55 hits shy of 3,000 after going two for four against the Angels. The Devil Rays optioned outfielder Randy Winn to triple-A Durham.

Davey Johnson refuses to be pinned down on whether he will return to manage the Baltimore Orioles in 1997. Johnson's three-year, $2.25-million contract with the team runs through the 1998 season. But Johnson declined to tell the Washington Post that he would definitely return next season. "I'm not going to comment at this point," he said from his home in Winter Park, Fla. "I'm under contract."

The Boston Red Sox apparently will not be looking for a bullpen closer this winter, even though they traded Heathcliff Slocumb to the Seattle Mariners in July. Manager Jimy Williams said recently he has been impressed with the performance of converted starter Tom Gordon and probably will use him in the full-time closer role next year.

Randy Wolf wanted to keep this game to himself. Wolf pitched a four-hitter, Jim Thome hit a two-run home run to reach 1,001 runs batted in and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Cubs, 3-0, Wednesday night. Wolf (11-5) struck out four and walked three, earning his sixth career shutout despite three Philadelphia errors. It was his second shutout this season. Before the game, Wolf told pitching coach Joe Kerrigan how long he wanted to pitch.

Joe Kerrigan was fired Tuesday as manager of the Boston Red Sox and replaced on an interim basis by third-base coach Mike Cubbage. It was the second major personnel move made by the Red Sox since John Henry's ownership group bought the team Feb. 27. A day after the sale, Dan Duquette was fired as general manager and replaced on an interim basis by Mike Port, a former Angel general manager. "This kind of decision is always difficult to make," Port said.

Larry Bowa was fired as manager of the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday, a day before the end of yet another disappointing season. The Phillies failed to reach the playoffs for the 11th consecutive season after coming in as favorites to win the East Division. They were 85-75 when Bowa was dismissed before Saturday night's game against Florida. "When I got to the ballpark this afternoon, I got a call from Larry Bowa asking me to come see him," General Manager Ed Wade said at a news conference.
