Dodger Chairman Robert Daly said Tuesday he thinks Senior Vice President Tom Lasorda was speaking out of frustration at the prospect of the club losing third baseman Adrian Beltre when Lasorda expressed the opinion earlier Tuesday that major league teams have signed dozens of underage players and said the Dodgers should be reimbursed for the time and effort put into Beltre's preparation if he is declared a free agent.

MARGARITA ISLAND, Venezuela - On a campaign visit here last month, presidential candidate Henrique Capriles ran through the streets of beach town Boca del Rio at breakneck speed with hundreds of supporters in tow. At another stop, he played a fast-paced, 10-minute game of full-court basketball with young supporters in Altagracia.

But can the 40-year-old run fast enough and score enough points with voters to unseat the entrenched and charismatic Chavez?

Minutes after hooded commandos stormed his tiny shack in the middle of the night and hustled him off to jail, Juan Carlos Diaz was smiling. Had he shot a bus fare collector in cold blood before 25 horrified commuters, as the police said? The 18-year-old high school dropout grinned before answering: "Not even close." But he acknowledged joining the M-18 gang four months earlier and proudly looked down at the 10-inch-high "18" tattooed on his chest and abdomen.
