TWINS/NC TALKS HEAT UP AS POHLAD MEETS WITH THE BEAVER

          Moving into a "serious talking stage," Twins Owner Carl
     Pohlad met twice Wednesday with NC businessman Don Beaver,
     who wants to bring the team to the Carolinas, according to
     Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE.  Pohlad: "We'll
     see him again this morning.  We're just talking, but we're
     in the serious talking stage."  In Atlanta at the MLB owners
     meetings, Twins President Jerry Bell said that he, Pohlad,
     Beaver and Twins financial consultant Bob Starkey met for
     two hours "to discuss Beaver's interest in buying the team." 
     Beaver confirmed the sessions, but said, "nothing material
     has happened yet."  Beaver "declined to say if he has made
     an offer" for the team, but Bell and Pohlad said none has
     been made (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 9/18).
