Officers in the city yesterday seized what they suspect is more than $100,000 worth of heroin. Officers Keith Hicks, Victor Diaz and William Frett of the Community Oriented Police Unit hid in a vacant house in the 400 block of Bailey Street, waiting for a suspected drug dealer to return, authorities said. The 21-year-old suspect appeared about 3:30 p.m., and as he opened the trunk of a green 1994 Buick, the officers moved. The suspect fled through a house. Inside the car, police said, they found about 10,000 sealed bags of a substance suspected to be heroin.

Sometimes Earl Foreman peers up and down the basketball court at Frankford and sees so many irresistible options open to him. There's Arthur "Yah" Davis open on one wing, and there's John Walker working his way free on the other. Farther down the floor, Petrick Sanders roams the baseline, flashing for the ball. So much offensive firepower, swirling in constant motion all around him. And Davis responds like Pavlov's dog at dinner time, jump-starting the team into a sometimes scary frenzy.

Somebody asked Sammy Sosa how difficult it will be for the Cubs to beat Greg Maddux in Game 3 of the National League Division Series. "I think it will be more difficult for the Braves to beat Kerry Wood," the rightfielder said, grinning slyly. "You know, I think we are probably going to win three in a row. We've done it before and I'm sure we'll do it again. " Few share Sosa's optimism. Down, 2-0, in the best-of-five series with the scene shifting to Wrigley Field tonight, most observers think the Cubs chances are as bleak as the cold, rainy weather that forced both teams to abbreviate yesterday's planned workouts.

Here's a tip on how to beat Jackie Herb in a championship tennis match. If the prize is a trophy, don't let her see it. "I won my first tournament when I was 11," Herb said. "I still remember it. There was this big trophy and I got my picture taken with it. I was so excited about getting that trophy. Before the tournament even started, I was like 'I've got to have that.' "Now, if I see a trophy at a tournament, I have to have it. If there's trophies for the top three finishers, I can't finish fourth.

Steven Gilhool likes to think he is more powerful than he looks. The 6-foot-3 Lower Merion junior is a little on the lanky side, but it's not a good idea to underestimate the power of his swing. Gilhool will need all the power he can muster to carry the majority of the load for the traditionally strong Aces boys' volleyball team this season. Two years ago, Lower Merion was the runner-up for the PIAA state championship. Last year, a loaded Aces team finished third in the state.

OPEN LETTER to Ryan Howard: Dear Ryan: I love you. Most Philadelphia baseball fans still love you, but some feel you are close to overstaying your welcome. Retire, Ryan. Please. You are one of two remnants of the glorious 2008 championship team that ended Philadelphia's humiliating, 25-year championship drought, bringing us psychological and emotional relief. You gave us j-o-y. Others we loved - Cole Hamels, Brad Lidge, Jamie Moyer, Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, Pat Burrell, Shane Victorino, Jayson Werth, Matt Stairs - have moved on to one greener pasture or another.

It was a mismatch from the start, a pitcher who has been giving up runs grudgingly facing a team that has had recent trouble scoring them. Buena, led by the one-hit pitching of righthander George West, won its 10th game in a row yesterday, defeating visiting St. Augustine, 6-0, in an interdivision game in the Cape Atlantic League's National Conference. The Chiefs improved to 10-2. St. Augustine dropped to 7-3. West, who has agreed to accept a partial scholarship to Monmouth College, put together his third straight dominating performance.

The horde of major-league scouts pointing their radar guns on every pitch was the first indication that the game featured a special attraction. About 15 scouts showed up for Audubon's game against host Collingswood yesterday, and they weren't there because they were interested in who wins the Colonial Conference. They were there to evaluate Brett Laxton, Audubon's 6-foot-2 senior pitcher. Laxton impressed the assembled gathering by pitching five strong innings; he allowed five hits and one run and struck out eight in Audubon's 4-1 victory over Collingswood in the Colonial opener for both teams.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 1. Watch 'em roll Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals vs. Saints. Despite the favorable rushing matchup, Palmer will have to carry a big load to keep pace with Drew Brees & Co. Jonathan Stewart, RB, Panthers at Jaguars. Given the sorry state of Carolina's receiving corps, and the soft underbelly of the Jacksonville defense, Stewart should find plenty of room to roam on Sunday. Chris Ivory, RB, Jets vs. Browns. Ivory has no real competition for carries, and there are plenty of concerns about the Jets' passing game.

DUCE STALEY understands better than anybody what can happen to a running back who gets ridden too hard. Fourteen years ago, in just his third season with the Eagles, Staley lugged the football a career-high 325 times. It was the fourth- most carries in the league that year. He rushed for a career-high 1,273 yards, his second straight 1,000-yard season. But five games into the following season, he suffered a foot injury that put him out for the rest of the year. He came back and played five more seasons in the league, including three more with the Eagles.

I'd like your input on a major life decision facing me this week. I need an informed opinion on what's cool among 5-year-olds as I try to choose a backpack for my soon-to-enter-kindergarten son. Kid fashion in the aggregate is easy. You can never go wrong with sparkles or cheetahs or hoods with ears. But predicting what's going to be cool at each age is a fine art. I don't want to ruin my child's public image by sending him to kindergarten with the wrong backpack. And shopping for one is as complicated as planning a moon launch.

Just one glimpse at Chase Reynolds reveals that he's a football player. The Montana running back's chiseled frame, thick neck, and protruding calves are giveaways. But being a football player is just a fraction of Reynolds' story. The 22-year-old redshirt junior is also a husband and a father and carries a 3.2 grade-point average while majoring in criminology. In the summers, he works 70-hour weeks at a Montana construction company to make ends meet. And that's not it. He and his wife, Kila, are expecting their second child in April.

Go ahead, Mr. Nonbeliever. Tell Mike Isgro he's too small. Tell the Delaware Valley College quarterback that his size prevents him from being effective. But be careful. The listed 5-foot-10, 180-pounder is known for making doubters take back their words. When it comes to playmakers, Isgro is one of the best in NCAA Division III. The senior is the main reason the Aggies are favored to win their second straight Middle Atlantic Conference title. Being overlooked "kind of does motivate me," said Isgro, a product of Absegami High School.

Shaq is getting ornery. "I don't foul my man," he said Wednesday, responding to Pat Riley's plea to stay out of foul trouble. "I haven't fouled my man in a while. The only time I get in foul trouble is when I . . . help. . . . We have to do a better job as a team. " Shaq is calling out teammates. "It's money time," he said. "Guys like [Udonis Haslem], they should take it personal. When I get the ball in the post and get double-teamed, they should take it personal. Everything they read, they should take personal.

Amy Hoyer loves the game of soccer and it shows in her play, but the senior midfielder from Northern Burlington admits to being a little fatigued this time of year. That's because in addition to high school soccer, which is usually a six-day-a-week commitment, Hoyer also works out with her club team, the Medford Strikers Scream. There isn't a heavy girls' club soccer schedule in the fall, but the teams do work out, some a few times a week. That's because this weekend, one of the biggest girls' club soccer tournaments in the country is taking place.
