Every time Magic Johnson and Guggenheim money-man Mark Walter give an interview about their group taking over the Dodgers, there is a familiar refrain: Stan Kasten is the baseball guy. Only is he? Kasten made his baseball name as a baseball executive. He is the former president of the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals. He has never been a baseball general manager. He has been a basketball GM with the Atlanta Hawks, but once Ted Turner slid him over to the Braves, he was always an executive on the baseball side.

Atlanta Brave outfielder Deion Sanders, stung by criticism of him by Brave officials, defended himself Monday. Sanders, upset by the Braves' claims that he broke a spoken agreement by playing for the Atlanta Falcons as well as for the Braves on Oct. 11, said he never promised he would play baseball exclusively during the postseason--only that it would be his "full-time job." "Nobody said that I couldn't play football," Sanders said.

Jonathan Schuerholz hears the whispers, and picks up on the disapproving looks from those who consider him the classic example of nepotism. He's with the Atlanta Braves, they must be saying, only because his father is the general manager. Well, there's no getting around that -- John Schuerholz is the GM of the Braves. But father and son say their relationship at the ballpark is all business. "He might be in a deal someday," the proud but pragmatic dad said.

John Schuerholz was talking about Deion Sanders the person. Bobby Cox was talking about Deion Sanders the athlete. Schuerholz suggested Tuesday night he has lost a measure of respect for Sanders. Cox seemed to say he has nothing but respect. "He's just a special athlete, he really is," Cox said. The special athlete known as Neon Deion lit up Game 3 of the World Series, but it was not enough to win a special kind of game for the Braves. They lost to the Toronto Blue Jays, 3-2.

Is there more rhyme than reason to this worst-to-first business? Or is the 1991 World Series, matching the only two teams to have gone from last to first in consecutive seasons, simply the latest and most graphic example of baseball's era of parity, sometimes spelled with o-d-y at the end? What does it mean? What, if anything, is the reason for the rhyme?

Deion Sanders, signed as a free agent to a minor league contract by the Atlanta Braves Jan. 30, agreed to a major league contract with the team. Sanders, who signed for a $510,000 bonus and $150,000 salary in January, did not receive a raise, said the Braves' general manager, John Schuerholz. However, he has new incentive clauses. "Money is money," Sanders said. "I just want to be successful. Along with success comes the money."
