Joe Morgan never retired from baseball. He just stopped playing in games. He is 70, going on 45. What we remember - the left-handed batter swatting hits as easily as we swat flies - remains the essence of who he is and what he will always be. He played in the majors from 1963 through 1984. Then he went immediately into a broadcasting career that bounced from his beloved Cincinnati Reds to stints with the San Francisco Giants, Oakland Athletics, ABC and, most prominently, ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball.

After the Red Sox outfielders collided in Monday night's game, the Fox announcers said, "It's so hard to watch." In spite of the difficulty, Fox showed the collision over and over again. Let's see the bull gore the matador, the race driver hit the wall, the quarterback's leg snapped. Let's see what's so hard to watch again and again. It sells beer and cars and is right behind a filmed drive-by shooting. That's sports, folks. David Eggenschwiler Los Angeles With all the broadcasters out there, why are we forced to listen to Steve Lyons on Fox?

It was eight years and two days ago that the World Series last visited San Francisco. The Giants throttled the Angels, 16-4. The first World Series championship parade in San Francisco was one victory away. Civic delirium erupted. "An hour after the game, it was still like New Year's Eve," said Jon Miller, the Giants' Hall of Fame broadcaster. "It was like a war had just ended. " It was eight years ago, to the day, that Scott Spiezio happened. The parade never did. The sad refrain in Los Angeles is that a kid could have graduated from college by now without seeing the Dodgers win the World Series.

AOL Time Warner Inc. is expected to name a new head of its struggling America Online division as early as today, turning to an outsider to stabilize and reinvigorate its most troubled unit, sources said. Jon Miller, formerly president of the information and services group of USA Interactive Inc., will be appointed chairman and chief executive of the division, which has been without a leader since the abrupt resignation last month of Robert W. Pittman amid a plummeting stock price.

Job No. 1 for Jonathan Miller, named Tuesday as chief executive of America Online, will be helping the company figure out what it wants to be, now that it's all grown up. AOL burst into the American mainstream in the mid-1990s with its friendly, easy-to-use Internet service and signed up millions of customers. Once a scrappy technology start-up, AOL today finds itself mired in the problems of a mature company struggling to keep up with a technology revolution it helped ignite.

Jon Miller isn't sure what to expect. It's a few minutes before 9 on a fog-shrouded morning and a neighbor of this seedy-looking house in Cypress has put in a call to the mosquito police. Which is why Miller is here. He carries a badge. Miller, 47, is an inspector for Orange County Vector Control, which sounds vaguely like some intergalactic bureaucracy. Vector Control's mission, though, is real: to eradicate rats, mosquitoes and other pests that can spread infectious diseases to humans.
