NEW YORK - There's a chance that the podium under the chandeliers in the Vanderbilt Room of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel will go unused. With the cloud of steroids shrouding the candidacies of Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and others, baseball writers may fail for only the second time in more than four decades to elect anyone to the Hall of Fame, rendering a news conference unnecessary. About 600 people are eligible to vote in the Baseball Writers' Association of America election, all members of the organization for 10 consecutive years at any point.

Fittingly enough, Sam Holman stood under the shade of a giant maple tree in his front yard last weekend and proudly held what could soon become a piece of baseball history. The bat in Holman's hands was carved from a piece of maple - not the customary northern ash used in other bats - just days before in the small, dusty shed next to the tomato patch behind his red-brick house. The barrel of the bat was stained black and the handle cherry. The bat measured 34 inches and weighed precisely 31.7 ounces.

BARRY Bonds' record doesn't impress me. He offered 9/11 victims $10,000 a home run, then got mad when pitchers didn't put the ball right down the middle so he could hit a home run. I'm glad I was around when Aaron broke Babe's record, and I hope I'm here when A-Rod breaks this record. Walt Van Horn Philadelphia

Barry Bonds hit his 30th home run last night, reaching the mark faster than anyone in major league history. Bonds connected in the fourth inning for a solo shot in the San Francisco Giants' 3-1 win over visiting San Diego. Bonds has hit 30 home runs in 57 games. Babe Ruth reached 30 homers in 63 games in 1928. Bonds' 524th career homer came against Bobby Jones. After the shot to centerfield, Bonds rounded the bases as the crowd at Pacific Bell Park chanted "Barry! Barry!"

Yankees captain Derek Jeter plans to wait until teammate Alex Rodriguez addresses his latest off-the-field controversy before commenting on the matter. The Miami New Times reported last week that Rodriguez bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances from 2009 to 2012 from Biogenesis of America L.L.C., a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, Fla., near Rodriguez's offseason home.

The ballots are in. The name of the National League's Most ValuablePlayer, as voted by the Baseball Writers Association of America, will beannounced this evening. It appears likely that Giants leftfielder Barry Bonds will win the awardfor the third time in four years and that Phillies centerfielder Lenny Dykstrawill finish second. Even Dykstra concedes that. Not that he necessarily agrees. "You can look at it a couple of different ways," Dykstra said. "One thingis that the Philadelphia Phillies won the division and went to the WorldSeries.

It's going to happen to somebody. In the very near future, some major-league pitcher is going to give up Barry Bonds' 700th home run. Down the road, some pitcher will serve up the 715th homer of Bonds' career. A little farther down the highway to the history, someone will be tagged for No. 756. All this is contingent on Bonds' staying healthy, of course. But Bonds is in good health and sitting at 698 homers entering today's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks and righthander Brandon Webb.

It was like old times for Bobby Bonds last night, but, then again, it was like old times for a small crowd of former major-leaguers who played a four- inning exhibition game before the Phils met the Pirates. Bonds homered for the National League side, a crashing solo shot to left field in the third inning that couldn't prevent a 3-2 American League win. After the exhibition, Bonds got to sit back and watch his son, Barry Bonds, lead off the game for Pittsburgh with a home run to right field and then hit another homer, a two-run shot, in the sixth.

This planned show of force by Major League Baseball is quickly devolving into farce. If Alex Rodriguez plays baseball Monday night in Chicago, within hours of being suspended for 50 or 150 or 214 games, commissioner Bud Selig's attempted display of strength will serve only to remind everyone how weak MLB has been throughout the steroid era. That is fitting, because Rodriguez apparently has been cheating in plain sight throughout his career, just...

A lawyer for Barry Bonds urged a federal appeals court Wednesday to toss out the disgraced slugger's obstruction of justice conviction, saying a rambling answer he gave while testifying in December 2003 before a grand jury was not a crime. Bonds' legal team asked a three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to dismiss the lone felony conviction stemming from his response when asked whether Greg Anderson, his personal trainer, ever gave him "anything that required a syringe to inject yourself with?"

NEW YORK - Steroid tainted stars Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa were denied entry to baseball's Hall of Fame, with voters failing to elect any candidates for only the second time in four decades. In a vote that keeps the game's career home run leader and one of its greatest pitchers out of Cooperstown - at least for now - Bonds received just 36.2 percent of the vote and Clemens 37.6 in totals announced Wednesday by the Hall and the Baseball Writers' Association of America, both well short of the 75 percent necessary.

By William C. Kashatus Baseball writers have until the end of this month to cast their ballot for the Hall of Fame's Class of 2013. Of the 24 retired players to appear on the ballot for the first time are sluggers Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa and pitching ace Roger Clemens. While their statistical achievements are impressive, each man's career has been tainted by allegations of performance-enhancing substances. If those who cast the ballots for baseball immortality take seriously their responsibility as stewards of the game, Bonds, Sosa, and Clemens will be rejected.

SAN FRANCISCO - Pablo Sandoval became just the fourth player to hit three home runs in a World Series game, connecting twice against Justin Verlander and once off Al Alburquerque to lead the San Francisco Giants over the Detroit Tigers, 8-3, in Wednesday night's opener. Sandoval hit a solo home run to right-center in the first; a two-run, opposite-field drive to left in the third; and another bases-empty shot into the center-field batter's eye in the fifth. He joined Babe Ruth (1926 and 1928)

Two weeks ago, I introduced you to some Philadelphians I consider to be disruptive - innovative change agents who challenge the status quo in their respective fields. Since then, you've e-mailed me a lot of other names. Some - such as fiscal watchdog Brett Mandel and mural maven Jane Golden - are no-brainers. In a town long characterized by a go-along-to-get-along culture, they have the guts to stand up and stand out. I've been most intrigued, however, by the disrupters who have been operating below the media radar.
