Kudos to The Times for addressing it at all, but if a white baseball player didn't care about passing Mark McGwire's home run totals but wanted to "erase" Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa from baseball, we wouldn't be talking about his "arrogance"; we'd be talking about his racism. Dan Oakes Hacienda Heights Barry Bonds erase Babe Ruth? Bonds couldn't even erase a lead-footed Sid Bream, scoring from second on a single to left, costing the Pirates a trip to the World Series. How many world championships does Sir Barry have?

The Dodgers couldn't find a space on their roster for first baseman Sid Bream, so they created one Thursday, putting shortstop-second baseman Bob Bailor on the 21-day disabled list. Now, Bream, who was expected to play in this weekend's Freeway Series against the Angels, then return to Albuquerque, will start the season with the Dodgers. There is no question of Bream's deserving a berth on the Dodger roster.

To most of the world, "Who's on first?" is merely an Abbott & Costello comedy routine that has found its way into baseball lore, in fact, into the Hall of Fame at Cooperstown. To Sid Bream, it represents a lifetime frustration. Sid Bream is a first baseman by trade. One of the best. He has size, he fields well, he's left-handed--which most managers prefer in their fielding first basemen--and he makes a good target for infielders. At bat, he's a tough out. He hits mistakes well.

It is ironic that ex-Dodgers Sid Fernandez, Charlie Hough and Rick Rhoden are presently the aces of the Met, Ranger and Pirate pitching staffs while Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Ron Cey, R.J. Reynolds, Jeffrey Leonard, Sid Bream, Lee Lacy, Dusty Baker, Max Venable, Jerry Royster, Candy Maldonado, etc., are making noteworthy contributions to their current teams. However, in all fairness to Dodger management, they seemed expendable at the time of departure based on the quality of their play or free agency complications.

My nominations for the 1987 All-Star team of ex-Dodgers are (with '87 records, as of the All-Star break, in parentheses): Candy Maldonado (.332) Jeffrey Leonard (.298) Sid Bream (.289) Greg Brock (.281) Bill Buckner (.274) And the pitchers: Rick Sutcliffe (12-4) Rick Rhoden (11-5) Charlie Hough (10-4) Dave Stewart (12-7) Sid Fernandez (9-5) Tommy John (8-3) The Dodgers traded this crew for a total of 13 players. Only three--Tim Leary (1-5)

Sid Bream knew it was gone as soon as he hit it Sunday. His first reaction? "Obviously, elation," Bream said. Then, as he began his tour of the bases, two things came to mind. "Don't show them up and don't fall down," he said. It was the first inning, a crowd of 45,541 was on its feet and Bream couldn't refrain from pumping a fist in response to his grand slam, but he didn't fall. A month ago, he might have.

The feelings of neglect, real or imagined, that dogged Sid Bream during his stifling Dodger career have been replaced by the unmistakable serenity and security that come with a steady job at first base in Pittsburgh. But, yeah, there still are times when Bream, in his second full season as a regular for the Pirates, reflects on why he never was able to make it with the Dodgers, who open a two-game series against Pittsburgh tonight at Dodger Stadium.

He is 38 years old, and at times you'd swear he was broken down. He went on the disabled list twice in one month (last June) with a blister on his finger and a pulled muscle in his calf. He pulled his hamstring in each of his last two starts, the last against the Dodgers. He missed 40 days in the last four months of the season. Time for a testimonial? Not quite. In New York, Dwight Gooden's coronation as the new King of K already may have taken place.
