Bip Roberts, the Padres' most versatile player, was informed Tuesday by his agent that he will be traded to the Cincinnati Reds for reliever Randy Myers. The Padres and Reds categorically denied Tuesday night that a deal had been finalized, but a source close to the negotiations said there were only a few details remaining. "It's not official yet," the source said, "but it will be done. It'll happen before the winter meetings."

Randy Myers is back in town. The hand grenades, stun gun and other paraphernalia will arrive later. The left-handed reliever, definitely one of a kind, arrived in San Diego on Friday, wearing a camouflage hat and reporting for duty as the NL West-leading Padres prepared to open a three-game series against the Florida Marlins. Myers was obtained in a waiver deal with Toronto on Thursday, giving the Padres a lefty setup man for Trevor Hoffman, who leads the majors with 37 saves.

On the mound they're a contrast in style--Tom Browning the calm, cool technician, Randy Myers a picture of frenetic energy. The two Cincinnati pitchers combined for a 2-0, four-hit victory Sunday at Dodger Stadium. Browning pitched five hitless innings and improved to 5-4, and Myers came on in the eighth inning to earn his 11th save. The victory was the Reds' third in a row over the Dodgers, allowing them to leave town with a 11-game lead in the National League West.

A Massachusetts man traveled to Cleveland for the first time to see the All-Star Game. He was dazzled by the city's vibrant downtown, the broad lakefront and the passionate hum of The Flats. He loved the old architecture, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and, of course, Jacobs Field. One afternoon, he ventured off the beaten path to Lake View Cemetery, where he viewed the baroque four-story tomb of assassinated 19th-century president James Garfield.

The ambling figure with the bow-legged shuffle seemed lost in thought as he crossed the infield dirt and headed toward the pitching mound. He seemed oblivious to the ugliness cascading from the stands. Randy Myers was on his way to work. He also was oblivious to the message on the scoreboard. Though hardly on purpose, the timing was not good. The scoreboard was listing the players who had been added to the National League All-Star team.

The Cincinnati Reds and relief pitcher Randy Myers have agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth a reported $2 million. The left-hander was 4-6 in the regular season last year with a 2.08 earned run average and a career-high 31 saves, second in the National League to New York Mets left-hander John Franco.

Mike Mussina was hoping to get a victory to go along with his new contract, but Jason Giambi had other ideas. Giambi's two-run home run off Randy Myers with two out in the ninth inning Saturday gave the Oakland Athletics to a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. Myers (0-1) was 11 for 11 in save opportunities this season before blowing this one after getting two outs. Damon Mashore doubled and Giambi hit an 0-and-1 pitch over the center-field wall for his fourth homer.

Convinced that the numbers in his salary were more important to Cincinnati Red owner Marge Schott than his pitching statistics, John Franco welcomed the trade that sent him to the New York Mets Wednesday for Randy Myers, a swap of two of the National League's best left-handed relievers. The teams also exchanged minor leaguers: 25-year-old right-handed pitcher Kip Gross went to Cincinnati and 22-year-old outfielder Don Brown went to New York. Franco, who was born in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Reliever Randy Myers arrived Sunday and checked into the Padres' training camp, one week later than the rest of the pitchers and catchers, but three days before fines can be levied. He said he would work out today, although he probably won't throw batting practice until the end of the week. It could be another 10 days before he pitches in a game. Asked why he showed up later than teammates, Myers joked that he had directions to Winter Haven, Fla., instead of Winterhaven, Calif.

Randy Myers gave up a home run and then fought a fan who ran onto the field. The Chicago Cubs fell behind in the sixth, seventh, eighth, 10th and 11th innings but still managed to beat the Houston Astros. Rarely had anyone seen anything like Chicago's 12-11 victory Thursday. "That was crazy," Houston's Craig Biggio said. "Just when you thought you'd seen it all, along comes something like that. What a weird day."

The court is scorching, brows are dripping and patience, by all accounts, should be thinning. But the free-flowing stream of encouraging words quickly replenishes what has been depleted through repeated drilling and shot making. Listening to tennis professional Randy Myers is an ear-numbing experience. Myers, 38, in his 18th year of teaching the game, sees nothing golden about silence. "There's no such thing as hogging the ball," he yells to Linda Quinn. "That's your buddy.

Economic crisis? The five days of baseball's winter meetings seemed to belie that industry plea.

While the Padres' owners bemoan the $10 million they could lose this season, bullpen stopper Randy Myers says it's time for the organization to stop complaining and search for ways to increase their sagging attendance. "Instead of trying to cut salaries," Myers said, "maybe the owners should try to come up with ways to bring in more than 15,000 a night. Come on, with the kind of attendance we're getting, they should open the gates and let people in for free.

The Padres will probably not negotiate with potential free agents Benito Santiago or Randy Myers until after the expansion draft Nov. 17, said Joe McIlvaine, Padres general manager. "We've decided to wait because of the expansion draft," McIlvaine said Wednesday. "If we signed one or both of the players, we'd have to protect them. It's better to wait until after the draft, and then see what we'll do. "I don't think anyone's going to jump out and sign anyone before the draft, anyway."

Randy Myers might be the man Padre fans love to hate. He might make Benito Santiago look like a crowd favorite. The Padres will tell you Myers is the key to their hopes for winning the National League West title. "I don't want to be putting pressure on him," Padre first baseman Fred McGriff said, "but that's the key to our second half. If you're going to be successful, you've got to have a stopper. It's almost impossible to throw complete games in the National League, so a stopper is essential."
