Billy Crystal's one-day stint with the New York Yankees had Mike Downey of the Chicago Tribune wondering whether it was just a charming experiment -- or a harmful pattern. An e-mail he received from "Wheel of Fortune" host and lifelong baseball fan Pat Sajak seemed to indicate the latter. "This could lead to other celebrity signings," Sajak wrote while he was in Vero Beach, Fla., at a Dodgers exhibition game, according to Downey. "Prince William to the Royals, or Shaquille O'Neal to the Giants, or Johnny Depp to the Pirates, or the Olsen sisters to the Twins."

TV or not TV. . . . EYE OF THE STORM: Credit CBS with turning a sow's ear into a silk purse in replacing "The Pat Sajak Show." Short of material, CBS on Monday imaginatively began rerunning weeklong (or more) story "arcs" of "Wiseguy." It's a good crime series and a solid stop-gap entry of continuing stories for late-night. Taking over for the canceled Sajak, "Wiseguy," which stars Ken Wahl, this week deals with white supremacists.
