FEHR PLAY IN DENVER'S STAPLETON AIRPORT

     MLBPA Exec Dir Donald Fehr met with Rockies owner Jerry
McMorris yesterday, "perhaps paving the way for the resumption of
talks late next week."  McMorris: "We didn't move on any of the
substantive issues.  We did talk about how to get the talks re-
started.  We'll talk again tomorrow and try to fix some schedules
for the end of next week" (TORONTO STAR, 10/7).  Peter Schmuck
reports that Fehr and McMorris have met twice in the last two
days, once Wednesday night and again Thursday morning.  "The
discussion covered a variety of topics, apparently including"
Orioles owner Peter Angelos' revenue-sharing plan.  One MLB
source said that the owners took Angelos' plan "seriously enough
to perform a computer analysis of it" (Baltimore SUN, 10/7).
Meanwhile, in a letter to the union from management regarding its
proposed 45-day freeze on player transactions, owners asked that
rules preventing the clubs from "acting in concert be suspended
during the freeze" (USA TODAY, 10/7).  The union will hold
internal discussions on whether to endorse the freeze or, "agree
to suspend the anti-collusion language should the owners impose"
(Claire Smith, N.Y. TIMES, 10/7).
