          MLB: While MLB owners are scheduled to hold a
     conference call on realignment today, the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL
     SENTINEL is reporting that it is "likely another extension"
     on a final decision will be announced today.  A source told
     Tom Haudricourt that Acting Commissioner Bud Selig is
     "expected to announce a two-week extension to allow" the
     Royals "more time" to decide if they want to switch to the
     NL.  If the Royals don't switch, the Brewers "will move to
     the NL in their place" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 10/15).

     agent, David Falk, "have begun talks about Jordan's farewell
     tour."  NBA Dir of Sports Media Relations Chris Brienza:
     "Any conjecture about a farewell tour may be getting ahead
     of ourselves."  Falk, through a spokesperson, also called
     plans for a farewell tour "off base" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS,
     10/15).  With the Bulls in Paris for the McDonald's
