Rob Dibble, perspiring and shaking uncontrollably, was leaning over the bathroom sink in the early hours of Friday morning. His wife, Joanne, awakened by the coughing, looked up and began crying in anguish. Dibble, his eyes glazed, looked down and saw the sink was spattered with blood. It was happening again. "I haven't told too many guys about this," Dibble said Friday, "but I've been spitting up blood all season. I know why it's happening, but it's like I'm afraid to tell anyone.

Suspended White Sox reliever Rob Dibble has apologized for criticizing replacement players and was free to rejoin Chicago's minor leaguers, he said. "I've always been known for having a big mouth," Dibble said. "Guess I have to put a lid on it." Dibble was quoted in Saturday's Chicago Tribune as saying replacement players were "going to be labeled like child molesters for the rest of their lives. You're never going to get rid of that label."

The first thing you notice about Rob Dibble when you approach him is, he doesn't have fangs. He doesn't look as if he sleeps in a coffin, pulls wings off butterflies or hides out in the bushes at Central Park waiting for a guy with a gold wristwatch to come along. Rob Dibble has a reputation somewhere this side of Jack the Ripper or Mack the Knife. Rob Dibble with a baseball, they tell you, is Lizzie Borden with an ax, Hitler with an army. The Cincinnati Strangler.

Cincinnati Reds reliever Rob Dibble, who just completed a two-day suspension imposed by the team for a bat-tossing tantrum, has appealed the additional two-day term given him by National League President Bill White. The appeal allowed Dibble, who sat out Wednesday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals, to play this afternoon against the Chicago Cubs. The second day of Dibble's suspension was Thursday, when Cincinnati had a day off. The pitcher will remain eligible to play until a hearing is held, and it has not yet been scheduled.

Rob Dibble, the Cincinnati Reds' volatile pitcher, told Inside Sports that he can be "off the wall" when he is angry. "That's my makeup," he said. "Sometimes I have a 100-m.p.h. fastball and a 100-m.p.h. temper. That's intensity, not insanity." Vowing to harness his intensity, Dibble visited a psychologist last winter. "I saw the guy twice," he said. "I thought he was crazier than me." Trivia time: What is the NBA record for most overtime periods?

A lineup card foul-up caused confusion Thursday night in the game at Chicago between the Seattle Mariners and White Sox. Seattle's official lineup card listed two first basemen, Pete O'Brien and Tino Martinez, instead of a first baseman and a designated hitter. White Sox Manager Gene Lamont caught the mistake in the fourth inning. As a result, starting pitcher Rich DeLucia had to assume O'Brien's spot in the lineup and the Mariners lost their DH.
