A judge in Minnesota yesterday ordered the Twins to play their 2002 home schedule at the Metrodome. In addition, Twins owner Carl Pohlad was ordered not to sell the team unless the new owner agrees to have it play its home schedule in the ballpark. The decision by Hennepin County District Judge Harry Seymour Crump throws into question last week's vote by baseball owners to eliminate two major-league teams for next season. While the owners didn't formally pick the teams when they met Nov. 6, they made clear that the Twins and the Montreal Expos were the likely candidates.

THE INDIANAPOLIS Colts hired Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano as their new coach yesterday and will introduce him at a news conference this afternoon. "I like it," Pro Bowl defensive end Robert Mathis wrote on Twitter. The Colts are hoping the change produces better results after Indy went 2-14 last season. But there are questions about how this decision will impact the future of quarterback Peyton Manning and his teammates. The 51-year-old Pagano had been a career assistant until yesterday.

Kent Hrbek will make it official today. Hrbek, the Minnesota Twins' first baseman of the past 13 seasons, will announce his retirement at a news conference in the Metrodome. Hrbek said yesterday he would withhold his thoughts on retirement until today, but others jumped the gun, speaking with admiration. "I will be there at 3 p.m.," Kirby Puckett said. "There will be some handkerchiefs, man. " Puckett and Hrbek were the backbone of two world championship teams - in 1987 and 1991 - something many Twins acknowledged.

Here's a Monday score: Mother Nature 2, Major League Baseball 0. The game between the Atlanta Braves and the Colorado Rockies in Denver Monday night was postponed by a snowstorm - the third time in eight days that the white stuff has frozen out the summer pastime at Coors Field. In Minneapolis, the Minnesota Twins were proactive, preemptively postponing their game against the Miami Marlins seven hours before game time, while it was still 45 degrees and way before a single flake could fall at Target Field.

Carlos Silva chatted up his former teammates Friday afternoon at the Metrodome. He smiled easily. He looked relaxed. Silva, whom the Phillies traded last December in the Eric Milton deal, has turned out to be a nice surprise in the Minnesota Twins' rotation, and Twins teammate Joe Roa said Silva has shown leadership qualities in the Twins' clubhouse as a result. Silva showed the Phillies his physical abilities last night in a 6-1 victory. "When I got traded, I was hurt," Silva said.

So here they are, your distinguished champions of the titanic AL West - the one, the only Minnesota Twins. What a story they are. Their manager, the guy who barely speaks, is younger than two of his starting pitchers and only eight months older than a third. But at least he's older than the general manager. They play in this wacky, contorted ballpark called the Metrodome that looks like a parachute with bases. They play baseball games there at 11 a.m. to accommodate those gridiron heroes, the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

Hall of Famer Ted Williams was resting comfortably yesterday, recovering from flulike symptoms that sent him to the hospital. Williams was listed in serious condition after being admitted Thursday to Shands Hospital at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Fla., with a high temperature and below-normal blood pressure. The hospital declined to release additional details at the request of the family. The former Boston Red Sox star, the last player to hit .400 for a season, has been slowed by a series of strokes and congestive heart failure in recent years.

Even though they emerged from the American League West, a division where parity has run amok . . . Even though they sneaked up on the emotionally drained Detroit Tigers in the playoffs . . . Even though their season is one defeat away of ending one step short . . . Even though all of the above is true, it should also be remembered that the Minnesota Twins, Athletes Anonymous though they may be, will play in Game 6 of the World Series...

Well, this certainly isn't 1984 revisited, is it? In 1984, the Detroit Tigers needed a rear-view mirror just to make sure that the 25 other teams in baseball still existed. They led wire to wire. They lost one game in the entire postseason. They had a relief pitcher named Guillermo Hernandez who blew one save opportunity all year. They were world champs. There were no '87 Twins in their lives back then. There was no 2-0 deficit in the playoffs staring them in the face, as there is right now, after the Twins' 6-3 win behind Bert Blyleven last night in Game 2 of the American League championship series.

It was as if Mike Tyson had climbed into the ring with Pee Wee Herman and the referee had allowed it to go the distance. For what transpired last night when the 1987 World Series opened under the dim lights and canvas roof of the Metrodome was as ugly as the indoor surroundings themselves. In a brutal mismatch, the Minnesota Twins got one leg up on their first World Series championship by handing the undermanned St. Louis Cardinals a 10-1 beating in Game 1. The Cards will try to regain some credibility tonight (Channel 6, 8:30)

NOT EVERYTHING was demolished when the Metrodome in Minneapolis was imploded in February to make room for a new stadium scheduled to open in 2016. Among the items that were salvaged and put up for sale were seats, squares of game-used turf, pieces of the fiberglass fabric roof, and urinal troughs. That's right - troughs. Begins with "T" and once full of "P. " The urinals, which varied in length from 8 to 12 feet, were auctioned by K-bid.com, which posted the following description: "Stainless Steel Trough from Metrodome Restrooms.

The frigid wind blowing off the Mississippi River did not ice this kicker yesterday. In the comfort of the climate-controlled Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, David Akers set one Eagles postseason record and tied another in a 26-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Akers tied a team postseason record with four field goals, including a 51-yarder that was the longest in Eagles playoff history. His reward will be a game this Sunday in the usually brutal elements at Giants Stadium.

Plenty of seats are still available for Sunday's game in the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis. The Vikings reported 8,000 tickets remained at noon yesterday for the game with the Eagles. The NFL has granted an extension until 3:30 p.m. local time today to reach a virtual sellout, and avoid a local TV blackout. The blackout would encompass not only the Twin Cities, but secondary markets in the region as well. It includes satellite, cable and over-the-air systems, so nobody in the area could watch the game unless they're in the Metrodome.

In a decision that could block baseball's plan to eliminate teams this season, the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld an injunction yesterday that requires the Twins to play in the Metrodome in 2002. The unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel in St. Paul will be appealed to the Minnesota Supreme Court, lawyers for Major League Baseball and the Twins said. But with less than a month until the start of spring training in mid-February, it appears unlikely baseball owners will be able to fold Minnesota and Montreal Expos - their two likely contraction targets - before this season.

No matter how good they are, the Green Bay Packers just can't seem to play well in the Metrodome. Brett Favre threw for only 169 yards against Minnesota's poor pass defense while counterpart Daunte Culpepper threw for a score and ran for another in the Vikings' 35-13 victory yesterday over visiting Green Bay. It was the Packers' worst regular-season loss in eight years. "We'll find out if we're as good as we think we are," Favre said. "If we play like today, we'll be home for the playoffs.
