The morning after his historic 3,000th hit, George Brett seemed to be leaning toward retirement. Brett, bleary-eyed and unshaven after a team party that went into the wee hours Thursday morning, said he intends to discuss his future with Royal General Manager Herk Robinson and team owner Ewing Kauffman within the next few days.

Keith Miller found sanctuary in one thought during the Kansas City Royals' 1-16 start this season. At least this wasn't happening in New York. Still, he was beginning to wonder what he had gotten into after being traded from the Mets last December along with Kevin McReynolds and Gregg Jefferies for Bret Saberhagen and Bill Pecota.
