IMAGINE MICHAEL Irvin or Claude Lemieux doing a book signing in Center City. Imagine being that nauseated over anything sports-related that isn't an Eagles' draft. That's what New Yorkers had to deal with yesterday, when Red Sox slugger David Ortiz signed copies of his autobiography "Big Papi" in Manhattan, which is hard-core Yankees territory. Ortiz got out alive, which is more than we can say lately about the 9-14, last-place Yankees, who have lost five of six to Boston the last two weekends.

" Kevin Brown is set to return to the Yankees tonight against Baltimore, his first start in more than seven weeks.

Jack McDowell was activated from the 60-day disabled list by the Anaheim Angels yesterday and started serving a four-game suspension. McDowell, out since June 1 because of pain in his right elbow, was penalized for his involvement in a brawl in Kansas City on June 2. The Angels designated lefthander Greg Cadaret for assignment. David Ortiz and Minnesota Twins coach Ron Gardenhire were ejected in the first inning of a game against the Boston Red Sox after a home-run call was reversed.

The Boston Red Sox will be the first World Series winner featured on a Wheaties box since the 1999 New York Yankees. The special-edition package will picture slugger David Ortiz on the front of the box, cereal maker General Mills said yesterday. The box will be available in mid-November. The Colorado Rockies and Jeromy Burnitz declined to exercise a $3 million mutual option, and the outfielder will get a $250,000 buyout. Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Adrian Beltre filed for free agency on the same day he underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove two large bone spurs from his left ankle.

The Red Sox turned their last waltz into a victory dance as they rebounded in 2007 from two disappointing seasons to roll over Colorado in four games. What the core players did: The Sox swept the 2004 World Series over the Cardinals, and then did the same in 2007 to the Rockies. With 2004 stars Johnny Damon, Kevin Millar, Pedro Martinez, and Derek Lowe gone by 2007, it was up to former Phillie Curt Schilling, Tim Wakefield, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, and Jason Varitek to go out in glory.

McLaren tirade Have you seen or heard John McLaren's postgame tirade following the Mariners' 5-4 loss to the Angels on Wednesday? We put tirade in italics because it was one of the more pathetic managerial outbursts in recent memory, despite the 13 beeped-out cuss words. Here's the PG-rated version: "We're playing our asses off every day, and we got nothing to show for it. I'm tired of bleeping losing. I'm tired of getting bleeping beat, and so are those guys. We're going to change this bleeping thing around and get after it. And only we can do it. The fans are beeped off, and I'm beeped off. And the players are beeped off. And that's the way it is. There's no easy beeping way out of this.

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was held overnight at Massachusetts General Hospital last weekend to monitor an irregular heartbeat, but the matter ultimately proved nothing more than a scare for the player and team, the Boston Herald reported last night on its Web site. Ortiz confirmed an Internet report that stated he was treated, but declined to speak at length about the matter, only saying he was admitted Saturday night for observation. Ortiz acknowledged that he began experiencing a rapid heartbeat Friday night after the Red Sox dropped both ends of a doubleheader against the Yankees at Fenway Park.

David Ortiz was back in the Red Sox lineup, and the Fenway crowd gave him a standing ovation just for stepping into the batter's box. His timing is still off, his MVP-caliber production still absent after a week being poked and prodded to determine the source of heart palpitations. "Some fastballs got by him that don't normally get by him. That will change," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "It was good to see him out there. " Ortiz went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts, but his return was good news enough for Boston following one of the worst months ever for a franchise that has seen plenty of bad ones.

THE PHILLIES were playing in Cincinnati on a Monday night. Ben Revere made a highlight-reel catch, with the words "Pray for Boston" freshly etched on his glove. The Red Sox had just wrapped up their annual Patriots' Day game at Fenway Park before heading out for a short, three-game trip to Cleveland. A week before the 2-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, a federal jury declared that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was guilty of all 30 counts he was charged with in the horrific event that left three spectators dead and wounded more than 200 people.

A YEAR AGO, Mookie Betts was preparing for his season as a Double A infielder in Portland, Maine. Yesterday, he hit a third-inning home run against Cole Hamels and ran down the few balls hit to him in centerfield. You want to know why the vibe is so different for the Boston Red Sox after a season in which they managed to lose even more games than the Phillies, Mookie is as good a place to start as any. Only 22, Betts was the leadoff hitter in Boston's free-agent-infused Opening Day lineup yesterday, a lineup that has added Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval to central figures Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz, a lineup that, yesterday at least, included a healthy and mobile Shane Victorino.

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz says he "never knowingly took any steroids" and he's definitely a Hall of Famer. The remarks by the 39-year-old designated hitter came in a column Thursday for the Players' Tribune, a website founded by former Yankees star Derek Jeter that gives professional athletes a platform. Ortiz also voiced his displeasure that he will "always be considered a cheater" to his detractors. Ortiz contends nobody in baseball has been tested more for performance-enhancing drugs than he has - more than 80 times since 2004.

What if Big Papi declared war and nobody joined up? It kind of looked that way at Fenway Park on Saturday evening, when the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox tangled one night after David Price hit David Ortiz and Mike Carp with pitches in a 3-2 Sox win in a 10-inning game filled with beanballs, bench-clearing brawls (of the grab-your-partner do-si-do baseball type), and ejections. After Friday's game, Ortiz got all Bugs Bunny vs. Yosemite Sam about it, announcing "this means war" while preparing a Candygram rigged with a boxing glove.

IT IS May 20 and the Phillies are within four games of first place. They are also dead last in a division of underwhelming teams, which suggests one of two things: * They are not as bad as they at times seem. * They are a whole lot worse than what their current status would suggest. In the spirit of the Phillies' annual ALS philanthropy, let's flip the doomsday talk for a day and look at this thing from the bottom of the hourglass up. Can they make the playoffs? Asked another way, did anyone see the Boston Red Sox winning the whole thing a season after losing 93 games?

AFTER A big win, athletes often say they're going to Disney World. But boxer Danny Garcia has a different kind of fantasyland on his mind after a fight. Garcia (28-0) said he abstains from sex during training so . . . "First thing I do is have sex," he told TMZ. "No groupies; I have my girlfriend waiting for me in the hotel," he said. " And I have sex right after the fight. " Sounds like more fun that anything the Magic Kingdom has to offer.   Selfish selfie? David Ortiz may have ruined it for everyone.

STEVE HORGAN went from Boston police officer to national celebrity with one swing of a bat. Horgan is the now-famous cop who was caught on camera jubilantly raising his arms after David Ortiz' game-tying grand slam in the eighth inning landed in the Red Sox' bullpen on Sunday night. Not surprisingly, there's already a new fad called "Horganing," where people pose with their arms raised. Call them "Horgan's Heroes. " While Horgan was celebrating, Tigers rightfielder Torii Hunter was busy flipping over the outfield wall in a bold, but futile, effort to catch the ball.

BOSTON - While the Red Sox wrapped up their pregame batting practice session and the Phils took over the field, the two lefthanded sluggers from their respective teams spoke behind the cage on Monday. Ryan Howard and David Ortiz talked about hitting. Yesterday, Ortiz said he and Howard have talked hitting regularly throughout the years, offering each other observations. Ortiz said he had a simple message for Howard on Monday. "I told him, 'Go up there like you did when you were a kid - just see the ball and hit it,' " Ortiz said.

BOSTON - They met behind the batting cage, Ryan Howard and David Ortiz. The Big Piece and Big Papi, two gigantic men with similarly gigantic accomplishments on their resumés. As the two embraced and made pregame small talk, they could be seen as kind of macro-size microcosms for their franchises. And the Phillies didn't do any better in that comparison than they did in the one-sided baseball game that followed Monday night. Things have gone very wrong for these Phillies. Some of that is bad luck, with Roy Halladay, Chase Utley, and Carlos Ruiz on the disabled list.
