All-star outfielder Shawn Green has signed an $84-million contract with the Dodgers, but competition to recruit the 27-year-old Newport Beach resident is far from over. As the former Toronto Blue Jay searches for a house in Los Angeles and prepares for the coming season, the region's synagogues and Jewish organizations are vying to make him a member of their teams as well.

Hello Juan Uribe. Goodbye losing streak. There are gentle ways to turn around a bad skid and then there are nights like Monday, when led by Uribe's three solo homers, the Dodgers went the sledge-hammer routine, pounding the Diamondbacks behind a six-home run attack for an 8-1 victory. A Dodger Stadium sellout crowd of 52,410 packed the ballpark on Hello Kitty bobblehead night, watching the Dodgers snap a four-game losing streak to reduce their magic number for clinching the National League West to eight.

Shawn Green, who was originally converted from outfielder to infielder, has now been converted to a new position: Designated Rally Killer. Eddie Navarro Thousand Oaks After ending last Friday's Dodger comeback against the Astros by hitting into a double play, Shawn Green said, "I was real happy with the at-bat.... I was just happy to put it in play." Are you kidding me? Hey, Shawn, for those of us not making $16 million this year, that quote sounds like something the right fielder on the Little League team says.

PETAH TIQWA, Israel -- The finest baseball field in Israel is here, with a tree beyond center field whose branches and leaves lean over the outfield wall, with rickety wooden bleachers atop a mix of dirt, pebbles and weeds. The field is part of a conference center and recreational facility established by Americans. The second-best field in the country is part of a village founded by Americans. The Israel Baseball League, a professional league dreamed up and poorly implemented by Americans, collapsed after one season.

The four words swept across the Southland on Thursday afternoon like a summer breeze, a baseball breeze. So where were you? I was at Staples Center, at Laker practice, standing in the rear at the Church of Phil, his daily homily about stripe-shirted serpents nearly complete, when my cell phone rang. "Shawn Green hit four," said the voice on the other end. I walked away, sat down, and repeated the words back for confirmation. Didn't you? Didn't everybody? Shawn Green hit four?

Shawn Green of Tustin set the Orange County high school career record for hits with a triple in the fourth inning of Friday's game. Green's two hits were among 14 for Tustin as the Tillers beat Saddleback, 10-3, in a Sea View League game at Saddleback High. Green, a left-handed hitting senior outfielder, hit Ralph Lopez's fastball over center fielder Luis Estrella's head for the 130th hit of his career, topping the previous record of 129 set by Laguna Hills' Chris Sheff in 1989.

If not for Javier Vazquez's reluctance and the Dodgers' hesitation because of it, Shawn Green probably would have waived his no-trade clause and continued his career in Arizona. As it is, not two months from spring training, Green still belongs to the Dodgers, with whom he has one season remaining on a contract that will pay him $16 million.

The Dodgers have agreed in principle to trade Shawn Green to the Arizona Diamondbacks for two players, according to baseball sources, the paperwork for which is expected to be submitted to Commissioner Bud Selig's office today. The trade could be related to, but does not depend upon, Arizona's intention to deal Randy Johnson to the New York Yankees, the details of which also are expected to be filed with Selig today.

The New York Mets and Atlanta Braves played a doubleheader Wednesday that resembled the NL East race. It was no contest. Shawn Green broke out of his slump with a huge day at the plate, Oliver Perez (3-11) pitched his second career shutout for his first win since May, and New York completed a doubleheader sweep with an 8-0 rout of Atlanta. Carlos Delgado hit a tiebreaking homer in the opener, and the Mets got another fine effort on the mound from Dave Williams (5-3) in a 4-1 victory.

  Your browser does not support iframes. It was 10 years ago today, Shawn Green taught the band to play -- no, wait, may I reintroduce to you possibly the single greatest offensive day by a player in major league history? Green was a struggling disappointment 10 years ago, that sweet swing suddenly vanished without explanation. He had been booed in his last home game. But then came May 23, 2002 in Milwaukee. And by the end of the day, Green was rewriting the record books.

At the outset, let it be noted that this book is for the faithful, those who bleed blue, who stay at the game until the last out (whatever the inning) and who don't think the day is complete at home until Uncle Vinny signs off with a cheery "good-night everybody. " "Dodgers From Coast to Coast: The Official Visual History of the Dodgers" is not an all-encompassing history, however, and the tone is far from objective. It has some wonderful bits of history and some glaring omissions.

They are dressed in purple, the color of daybreak or dusk, depending upon one's bearing. Shawn Green and Troy Glaus, Los Angeles exiles, stand beside each other early this spring morning, draped in the colors of the 111-loss Arizona Diamondbacks. L.A. kids, L.A. baseball, L.A. gone, Glaus followed an Angel press release out of town, and Green will have all but $500,000 of this season's $10.5-million salary paid by the Dodgers, just to go.

The Dodgers paid $10 million for him to take off their uniform. That's more money than they will pay all but one player to wear their uniform. The Dodgers could have paid an extra $6 million to keep him. That's barely half as much as they will be paying J.D. Drew, who had eight fewer homers and seven fewer RBIs in the second half of last season.

Shawn Green is excited to join the Arizona Diamondbacks -- finally. Green, who agreed to the trade from the Dodgers after getting a $32-million, three-year contract that runs through 2007, had been the subject of trade rumors since the end of the season. "I couldn't be happier with the change for me," he said. "The team that I was really hoping would work out is Arizona. It's my favorite park to play in, and it's my favorite city to come to. It was a perfect fit for me and for my family."

This is partly a story about what it's like to be a father whose son plays major league baseball. For many dads in America, that would be off the charts for personal satisfaction. It's also a story about a father's respect for a son that transcends baseball and has nothing to do with whether he's a star on the field or not. It's about a son who knows there's more to life than home runs and doubles.

The Dodgers are expected to move quickly to spend the $6 million gained in the deal, signing free-agent pitcher Derek Lowe to a four-year, $36-million contract.

Call it a do-over. Shawn Green and the Arizona Diamondbacks will begin a second 48-hour negotiating period today, attempting to come to terms on a contract extension that is expected to complete a long-awaited trade and free enough payroll for the Dodgers to sign free-agent pitcher Derek Lowe. The Dodgers approved a revised deal with the Diamondbacks on Friday and also agreed to a four-year, $36-million contract with Lowe, sources said, contingent on Green's going to Arizona.
