Over the past 20 years, Roberto Hernandez has anticipated the roller coaster rises and plunges of Mexico's fledgling stock market. In the process, he has built the fortune--and reputation--that allowed him to put together the $3.

Roberto Hernandez, formerly known as All-Star pitcher Fausto Carmona, apologized to teammates for deceiving them and the Cleveland Indians organization for the last 12 years. The right-hander addressed the team through an interpreter and said, “I want to say I'm sorry. I thank God I am here and have been given a new chance.” The native of the Dominican Republic was arrested in January outside the U.S. consulate when he went to renew his visa. Like many aspiring baseball players from Latin America and the Caribbean, he took on a different name and lied about his age. Hernandez is 31, three years older than he said when signed by the team.

Roberto Hernandez was slumped in his chair Sunday morning, his uniform still hanging in his locker. "I feel like I've been run over by a truck carrying a full load of tomatoes," Hernandez said. "The only thing that doesn't hurt today is my hair." The 42-year-old reliever was the losing pitcher in the Dodgers' 7-4, 14-inning loss to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night, which had concluded only 10 hours earlier. He pitched two innings in the game, giving up three runs.

Dodgers Manager Grady Little had said he wasn't comfortable with only 11 pitchers at his disposal. And he showed his discomfort level with overusing his bullpen Tuesday when he left starter Mark Hendrickson in the line of fire for three-plus innings against the Philadelphia Phillies even though Hendrickson was shelled for seven runs and 11 hits. Wednesday, Little got his 12th pitcher.

Roberto Hernandez said he isn't sure what to do next, but facing the Florida Marlins with another game on the line wouldn't be high on his list. Hernandez, the beleaguered San Francisco Giant reliever, gave up the winning runs in the ninth innings of Games 1 and 2 in this National League division series. Hernandez realizes things could always be worse, but said this is already too much. "Obviously, it's not easy," Hernandez said. "I haven't done my job and everyone knows that."

Johnny Damon, the Dodgers' great winter hope for a leadoff-hitting center fielder, is coming west. Unfortunately for the Dodgers, he's headed for Oakland rather than Chavez Ravine. Damon, 27, was traded from the Kansas City Royals to the American League West champion Athletics in a three-team, nine-player deal Monday that included the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Mexico's dominant brokerage Monday bought the country's largest bank in a $3.3-billion cash transaction that paves the way for increased competition from Mexico for segments of California banking--especially the growing Latino market. Besides accounting for more than one-fourth of Mexico's total banking assets, Banco Nacional de Mexico is one of only two Mexican banks with subsidiaries in California.
