SCHOTT THREATENS TO TAKE REDS TO BLUEGRASS COUNTRY

     Reds Owner Marge Schott said she met with NL President
Leonard Coleman on Thursday and discussed the possibility of
moving the club to another city.  Schott said she believes the
city has made a "substantial effort" to keep the Bengals from
relocating, but no effort to satisfy her demands for the Reds: "I
hope I don't have to leave Cincinnati, but if I do, so be it."
Schott would not identify possible sites for relocation, other
than to say that nearby Northern KY is among them.  Schott said
that Coleman was supportive during their meeting in Cincinnati
(AP/Mult., 11/5).
     SCHOTT IN THE DARK?  In Cincinnati, Tim Sullivan writes,
"Schott sends out more signals than a television satellite, but
she is not too difficult to de-scramble.  Her latest threat to
move the team is a transparent attempt to extract concessions.
... The Cincinnati Reds deserve a stage worthy of their
tradition, and their prominent place in this community, and they
can almost certainly get one if their owner starts acting
reasonable" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 11/5).
