Atlanta Brave first baseman Randall Simon says he knows John Rocker was talking about him when he described a teammate as a "fat monkey" in a Sports Illustrated interview. And he says Rocker's explanation of the comment as merely clubhouse humor is a lie. "I swear to you if he said that to my face I'd tear him up, and one of us would be suspended right now," Simon said Saturday in an interview with Morris News Service. "When I joke, I don't try to make somebody feel bad. He knows too.

First baseman Randall Simon was traded Saturday by Pittsburgh to the Chicago Cubs for a minor league outfielder -- the third regular the Pirates have dealt to the Cubs in less than a month. The deal follows the July 22 trade that sent third baseman Aramis Ramirez and center fielder Kenny Lofton to Chicago. In this deal, the Pirates get Ray Sadler, who is hitting .291 with 31 doubles, six homers and 42 RBIs at double-A West Tenn.

The one-sided brat-bout between Pittsburgh Pirate first baseman Randall Simon and the 8-foot hot dog mascot last week at Milwaukee got San Francisco Chronicle columnist Scott Ostler thinking about the possibilities. "I've seen people attack their food, but this is ridiculous," Ostler wrote. "Wouldn't you like to be there when Simon's cellmate says, 'I'm in for homicide. How about you?' " Add Ostler: "The bratwurst, having lost three races in a row, has been sent down for more seasoning."

First baseman Randall Simon did not practice with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday after an irregularity was detected in an electrocardiogram. The team's position players were given physicals before the first full-squad workout in Bradenton, Fla. Simon was called off the practice field before drills began and observed the remainder of the 2 1/2-hour workout. "The trainers told us they needed to run additional tests," Pirate Manager Lloyd McClendon said.

Tom Glavine has caught Greg Maddux on the mound. Now he's trying to catch his teammate with his bat. He came up big on both counts Sunday. Glavine joined Maddux as the only 11-game winners in the National League and matched a career-high by driving in three runs with two hits as the Atlanta Braves overpowered the Toronto Blue Jays, 10-3. Glavine (11-3) gave up five hits, walked one and struck out one in seven innings. Maddux (11-2) beat the Blue Jays, 2-0, on Saturday night.

With supply and demand apparently tilted in their favor at two positions, the Angels could start spring training with a surplus of starting pitchers rather than trade Jarrod Washburn or Ramon Ortiz. "There's always a need for starting pitching," General Manager Bill Stoneman said Wednesday. "We're in a really unique situation. I never envisioned being in this situation, but it's a good situation." The Angels open camp six weeks from today, with first base the lone vacancy in their lineup.
