GAMMONS PREDICTS INTERLEAGUE REALIGNMENT FOR BASEBALL

     The results of the vote on financing for a new stadium for
the Mariners will not be known until Monday, but regardless of
any potential Mariners move, ESPN's Peter Gammons believes
baseball will realign soon.  Gammons reports that Montreal could
possibly change to the AL East, with Detroit moving to the AL
Central.  In the NL, Gammons says MLB leaders would like to
create a division with Kansas City or Texas joining Colorado and
Arizona.  The movement between leagues would create a rivalry
between St. Louis and K.C. and Houston and Texas (Rudy Martzke,
USA TODAY, 9/21).
     DC LOOKS TO WASHINGTON:  In this morning's WASHINGTON TIMES,
Thom Loverro reports that Virginia Baseball officials have had
talks with Mariners ownership about the sale of the club
(WASHINGTON TIMES, 9/21).  Meanwhile, ESPN's Gammons predicts the
Pirates will open next year at RFK Stadium:  "I would be shocked
if the Pirates weren't in Washington (D.C.) next year."  Gammons
says MLB's owners will show no support in blocking the move for
O's Owner Peter Angelos, who takes 25% of his fan base from the
DC area (USA TODAY, 9/21).
