THE 2011 HALL OF FAME ballot presented the usual challenges and tough decisions common in years without a slam-dunk first-ballot presence. Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar, both painfully close to the magic 75 percent a year ago, are back for another run at the tape. In his 13th year on the Baseball Writers' Association of America ballot, Blyleven was supported by 400 voters, or 74.2 percent. Alomar drew 397 votes, or 73.7 percent. That was hanging-chad close. Jack Morris (52.2 percent)

Righthander Mike Grace reverted to his early season form last night as the Phillies' two-game winning streak was halted by the Houston Astros, 8-2, before an announced crowd of 17,541 at Veterans Stadium. First baseman Jeff Bagwell went 3 for 5 with five RBIs to pace the Astros. Bagwell has 14 RBIs and is hitting .433 in 30 at-bats against the Phillies this year. "In a way, his season has been sort of a tease," Houston manager Larry Dierker said of Bagwell. "He hasn't had a bad year" - 26 homers, 84 RBIs - "but he hasn't been able to stay hot for three weeks or a month, like he usually does.

Ken Griffey Jr. went on the 15-day disabled list last night after a test found inflammation in a tendon behind his right knee. The Cincinnati Reds' centerfielder missed his fifth straight game with the injury. He was put on the DL after a 9-1 victory over the Florida Marlins. A fan was removed from the left-field bleachers at Chase Field in Phoenix for throwing an object at Barry Bonds during last night's game between San Francisco and Arizona. The object, which resembled a toothpaste tube, landed a few feet in front of Bonds and was removed by a security guard.

Houston Astros first baseman Jeff Bagwell, who leads the major leagues in RBIs with 116, will miss three to five weeks with a broken left hand after being hit by a pitch in last night's 3-1 victory over San Diego. Bagwell was taken to Houston's Methodist Hospital after he was hit by a pitch from Andy Benes in the third inning. Bagwell remained in the game until he took a called third strike in the fifth and was replaced by Chris Donnels. X-rays revealed he has a fracture of the fourth metacarpal bone.

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons turned a triple play in the sixth inning on their way to a 4-2 victory over the Omaha Royals in a Triple-A Alliance game last night. With men on first and second in the sixth, Omaha's Tommy Hinzo lined out to second baseman Mickey Morandini. The runners had been moving on the 3-2 pitch, and Morandini threw to shortstop Victor Rosario for the second out. Rosario then threw to Ricky Jordan at first for the third out. In the eighth, a botched double play helped the Barons score three runs.

Like all managers with contending teams, Houston's Terry Collins is treating this as the last week of the season. "With Cincinnati winning today and only three games left, it's one we had to have," Collins said after the Astros defeated the visiting San Francisco Giants last night, 7-4. It was their sixth straight victory and put them within one game of Cincinnati for the NL Central lead. "We've got to go out and play the next three games as best we can," Collins said. "Cincinnati has four games left and we've got to stay with them.

Jeff Bagwell arrived at Houston's spring training camp in Kissimmee, Fla., yesterday, his future still uncertain because the Astros filed an insurance claim stating that he's too hurt to play. "This is what I do, this is who I am," the first baseman said. "I can't just go away. That's not in my nature. I'm going to need a couple of weeks to see where I'm at and then make a decision from there. " Bagwell had surgery in June on his right shoulder, and the Astros want to recoup about $15.6 million of the $17 million he is guaranteed this season.

Jeff Bagwell went on the disabled list yesterday for the first time in seven seasons, an ominous setback in his battle with a degenerative shoulder condition. Bagwell, who turns 37 this month, missed only 12 games over the past three seasons despite arthritis in his right shoulder. But playing has become too painful, the Houston Astros first baseman said. "I just don't have the arm strength to get the ball to the infielders during warmups or get the bat head to the ball," he said.

" - Baseball Hall of Fame Instruction to Voters THE "INTEGRITY, sportsmanship, character" determination has become the Catch-22 of the annual BBWAA election of eligible former players to the Hall of Fame.

It's the most perplexing time of the year. A Hall of Fame ballot will soon arrive at my home and I will once again stare at the names of some of the greatest players in baseball history, trying to decide if they are worthy of a trip to Cooperstown, N.Y., that will jack up the price of their signatures and solidify their status as legends. This has never been an easy task, and many would argue that baseball writers have no business deciding who should and should not be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

How short is short? Yes, stories about Manny Ramirez won't go away. . . . but some of his trademark dreadlocks might. Dodgers manager Joe Torre again asked his new leftfielder when he would get a haircut and was told it would be within the next week. "He asked, 'How short?' I said I'd get back to him," Torre said in an MLB.com report. When asked by Torre how important wearing the dreadlocks was, Ramirez said it was more important for him to fit in with his new club and not be given preferential treatment.

Barry Bonds will not play for the U.S. team in the upcoming World Baseball Classic, saying yesterday on his Web site that he cannot risk injury after missing 148 games last season following three knee surgeries. The San Francisco Giants' outfielder was one of 52 players selected last week to compete for 30 spots on Team USA's roster. The 16-nation World Baseball Classic begins March 3. The Houston Astros intend to file a health-insurance claim on Jeff Bagwell's contract, arguing that the four-time all-star is too hurt to play next season.

With tensions running high at Wrigley Field, the Houston Astros kept their cool and climbed back into playoff contention. Lance Berkman homered and Carlos Hernandez (1-1) earned his first major league win in almost 2 years as Houston beat the Chicago Cubs yesterday, 10-3, in the final meeting of their testy season series. Jeff Bagwell capped a big weekend with three hits for the Astros, who took three of four from Chicago. They have won 11 of 14 overall and are just four games back in the NL wild-card race.

Just one more killer loss in a season full of disappointments. The Houston Astros beat the Phillies, 4-2, last night at Minute Maid Park to end the momentum they thought they had after sweeping the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend. The Phillies will try to avoid a sweep by the Astros this afternoon as they desperately cling to their long-shot postseason aspirations, which they insist are still alive. Mathematically, that is true. "You need to get to .500 first," manager Larry Bowa pointed out. Then the Phillies, who have dropped to 62-64, must pass five teams in the National League wild-card standings with just 36 games to play.
