THE SALE OF THE PIRATES ALSO A HOT TOPIC IN L.A.

     The sale of the Pirates to Kevin McClatchy will not be
ratified by MLB owners meeting this week in L.A., but NL
President Leonard Coleman said that should not be taken as a sign
that McClatchy's bid is collapsing, according to the WASHINGTON
POST.  Coleman said owners yesterday sent McClatchy a list
outlining what he needs to accomplish for approval.  Coleman also
said the ownership committee's remaining work can be done via
conference call, and Pirates officials say they hope the
McClatchy deal can be completed next week (Mark Maske, WASHINGTON
POST, 1/18).
