In this economy, even the presence of the Boston Red Sox does not guarantee a sellout. The Angels sold out 21 consecutive regular-season games against the Red Sox from 2003-08, but none of the six games this season sold out. The Angels sold 33,411 tickets to Tuesday's game against Boston, their lowest attendance for any opponent since 2004, and 35,124 to Thursday's series finale. Yet the Angels' average attendance is up slightly from this time last season, to 40,660.

Rudy Seanez's tattoo is so large, I tried to interview it. He looks like a Los Angeles freeway interchange. I've seen smaller art hanging in the Louvre. "What do you think of Rudy's tattoo?" I asked Tom Candiotti, the Dodger pitcher whose 4-2 victory Seanez saved Wednesday night at Joe Robbie Stadium. "I think he should get one after every save," Candiotti said. "But that could cover Rudy from head to toe," I said. "Fine," Candiotti said.

Rudy Seanez isn't concerned about his increased workload because on the nights he has worked, his work has been minimized. More draining than pitching in a game, Seanez said, is warming up multiple times in the bullpen. But, he noted, "When I'm up, I'm usually in." Seanez was called on five times in the Dodgers' first seven games after the All-Star break.

The trains rumbled behind his little house as many as four times a day, shaking his kitchen table, stirring up the dust and his dreams of leaving this desert town. Rudy Seanez could not stop those trains, so he would go into his back yard and throw rocks at them. Then he would throw rocks over them. Soon, he was throwing rocks onto the roof of an onion storage house more than 300 feet away.

The telephone call jolted him out of bed in his Cincinnati hotel room. He was instructed to be at the stadium early. Fred Claire, the Dodgers' executive vice president, wanted to see him. Dodger reliever Rudy Seanez remembers a thousand thoughts. The way he figured it, he was either going to be traded, sent back down to triple-A Albuquerque or even released. He walked into the room, saw the grim look on Claire's face and knew it was trouble.

The Dodger announced that pitcher Rudy Seanez, who missed the season because of lower back problems, will have shoulder surgery today, and that pitcher Pedro Martinez, who spent most of the season with triple-A Albuquerque, will have shoulder surgery Tuesday. Both surgeries will be performed by Dr. Frank Jobe at Centinela Hospital in Inglewood.

The Dodgers reinstated right-handed pitcher Rudy Seanez to their 40-man roster. Seanez, 23, was put on the 15-day disabled list March 29 because of back spasms and was later moved to the 60-day disabled list with two stress fractures in his lower back. The Dodgers have 39 players on their 40-man roster.

The Dodgers acquired hard-throwing right-handed relief pitcher Rudy Seanez from the Cleveland Indians for pitchers Dennis Cook and Mike Christopher on Tuesday. Seanez, who has a 98 m.p.h. fastball, was 2-1 with a 6.75 earned-run average for the Indians last season. Cook was 1-0 with an 0.51 ERA in 19 relief appearances and one start and Christopher gave up no runs in three relief appearances.

Jim Gott suffered through Wednesday night's game in Miami with what he thought was food poisoning. But Thursday in Chicago, his conditioned worsened, and within a few hours he was undergoing an appendectomy at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. There were no complications, and he was put on the 15-day disabled list. He will be replaced in the bullpen by right-hander Rudy Seanez, who was called up from triple-A Albuquerque. Gott was struggling and had been scored on in 10 of 27 games.

One of baseball's seemingly contradictory maxims is becoming evident with the Dodgers. Spring-training statistics don't matter, except when they do. Rudy Seanez, a 15-year veteran trying to squeeze one more season out of his remarkably live right arm, has pitched 8 1/3 innings without giving up a run this spring after retiring the side in order in the eighth inning of the Dodgers' 4-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.

His fastball has become almost legendary, but it wasn't enough to keep him from being demoted last season. "I've seen them all, from Nolan Ryan to Sandy Koufax," Dodger scout Mel Didier said, "but Rudy Seanez is the only pitcher I've had at 100 mph on my [speed] gun in all of my years at baseball. Oh, I've seen plenty of guys who had great fastballs, guys throwing 97 and 98 mph, but never 100, and Seanez did it twice. "How can anyone give up on an arm like that?"

The Dodgers designated reliever Rudy Seanez for assignment Friday and purchased the contract of Jim Bruske, 30, who was 7-5 with a 3.81 earned-run average at triple-A Albuquerque. The Dodgers now have 10 days to trade Seanez, outright him to Albuquerque or release him. Considering that Seanez is earning $350,000 this season and has a guaranteed contract for $650,000 next season, Seanez is expected to clear waivers and be placed on the Albuquerque roster.
