After nearly six seasons in the shadow of the St. Louis Cardinals' all-time leading rusher, Stump Mitchell is looking forward to being the team's No. 1 running back. Mitchell, 5-foot-9 and 188 pounds, spent most of his last six years with the Cardinals as a punt and kickoff returner, periodically filling in for Ottis Anderson. But he thinks he can stand up to the pounding of a 16-game season now that Anderson is gone, having been traded to the New York Giants midway through last season.

For one week anyway, Stump Mitchell removed the pressure from St. Louis Cardinal management for trading away the club's all-time leading rusher, Ottis Anderson.

Mitchell gained 126 yards in 20 carries, scoring on runs of 3 and 31 yards.

Gene Stallings, who spent 14 years as an assistant coach under Tom Landry at Dallas before becoming head coach of the St. Louis Cardinals, says he understands why St. Louis fans and players dislike Dallas. For one thing, the Cowboys have beaten the Cardinals in 12 of their last 15 meetings. "You know, you're always a little envious of someone who does well," said Stallings, whose Cardinals (0-3) meet the Cowboys (2-1) tonight at 6 p.m. PDT. "When you can't, you have a tendency to throw rocks.

The New York Giants acquired running back Ottis Anderson, the 11th-leading rusher in National Football League history, from the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday for two undisclosed 1987 draft choices.

St. Louis Cardinals running back Ottis Anderson Monday retracted his trade demand after a 30-minute meeting with Coach Gene Stallings. "I met with Coach Stallings and everything is resolved," Anderson said. "As far as a trade goes, I can forget it. I don't think the Cardinals are interested in trading me and I'm not really interested in going anywhere." Anderson requested a trade after the Cardinals dropped a 16-10 decision Sunday to the Rams.

The story is that Tom Lasorda pinned the nickname Bulldog on Orel Hershiser to make him appear tougher, but the Dodger pitcher told Hal Bock of the Associated Press, "I think he did that for himself more than he did for me. He's over there in the dugout yelling, 'C'mon, Bulldog.' I think it makes him think I'm tough and can work myself out of jams." Asked Bock: "What jams?" Add Hershiser: He can pitch, he can hit and he can run the bases. Is there anything he can't do?
