If the Atlanta Braves ask, Deion Sanders said he--not the Falcons--will decide if the outfielder-cornerback joins the final days of the NL West pennant race. "It's only speculative," Brave General Manager John Schuerholz said. "We may pursue Deion Sanders. We may not. We haven't done anything yet." Sanders, who left the Braves for the Falcons on July 31, said there was a 90% chance he would return to the Braves for the end of the season, but that he hasn't been asked yet.

John McHale Sr., 86, the first president of the Montreal Expos when they debuted as an expansion team in 1969 and the general manager from 1978 to 1984, died Thursday in a hospice unit near his home in Palm City, Fla., Major League Baseball announced.
