Just activated Mets reliever Billy Wagner could soon be headed to another team. Several reports said a team placed a waiver claim on Wagner - and more than one report indicated the team was Boston. ESPN.com reported that the Mets have until early Tuesday afternoon to work out a deal. The Red Sox would have to assume about $3.5 million owed to Wagner. If no deal is reached, the Mets can either let Wagner leave on the claim or pull him off waivers. If the latter happens, they would not be able to trade him this season.

The Phillies are now batting .500 in the free-agent season. General manager Ed Wade received a phone call from agent Danny Horwits yesterday informing him that lefthanded reliever John Franco decided to remain with the Mets rather than accept the Phillies opportunity to become their closer. The news came one week after the Phillies announced they signed free-agent righthander Joe Mesa. Even then, however, Wade acknowledged Mesa was not promised what role he would be used in and that the team would continue to pursue Franco to be used in save situations.

The Mets found themselves back in a hauntingly familiar place yesterday, and it wasn't that unappealing monstrosity they call home. As the scene for New York's World Series shifted from the Bronx to Queens, the Mets walked into Shea Stadium for yesterday's workout with their backs collectively pinned to the wall. Though you would never know it by the line of questioning in both clubhouses, the Mets have a much bigger problem than whether Roger Clemens' sawed-off bat toss in Mike Piazza's direction on Sunday was a heinous crime or a heat-of-the-moment reaction.

Matt Franco insists there's no special reason for his pinch-hitting success this year. Franco was at it again last night, delivering a two-run double in a four-run eighth inning that carried New York to a 9-7 win over host Atlanta, the Mets' fifth straight win. "I don't know of a secret," Franco said. "It just a matter of getting good pitches to hit. I knew I hit it hard. " A day after the Mets rallied against John Smoltz from a 5-1 deficit, they overcame a 5-1 deficit against Tom Glavine.

The neighborhood is known as South Central - Los Angeles at its toughest. This is not some pretty suburb, or beach, not even downtown, where the office buildings stand tall. This is inner-city Los Angeles, where you can feel the attitude all over the neighborhood. This is Darryl Strawberry country. "Man, you are in the ghetto now," he said with a smile. He pronounced it "ghet-TO. " Strawberry surveyed the streets, which are filled with broken- down cars and phone-equipped Mercedes.

A little more than a season after being nudged out the door by the franchise that his professionalism helped transform into a winner, Keith Hernandez came back to Shea Stadium for the first time as an ex-Met yesterday. Hernandez shared the box next to the Mets' dugout with owner Nelson Doubleday, visited with his ex-teammates after the game and resisted being overcome by memories. "It was strange," the lightning rod of the 1986 champs said. "I haven't watched a game from the box seats since I was a kid. " At 37, he's no longer a kid. Looking a few pounds heavier than when he was charging bunts and driving in key runs, recovering from the April back surgery that will keep him out of the Cleveland Indians' lineup for all of 1991, Hernandez seemed at peace with the possibility that his playing days might be over.

Q: I met this wonderful woman through an internet site three weeks ago, and everything's been great. I'm 24, she's 21. So why am I writing? Because two days ago, I met her sister, who's my age and was so smart and so beautiful that she took my breath away. Do I dare ask her out? Do I lose them both if I do that? Or should I take a chance on the best possible outcome? Mia: Dude, are you nuts? The only way you can date one sister after already taking the other out is if the first sister doesn't want your wishy-washy behind.

NEW YORK - For two nights at Citi Field, the Mets battered the Phillies. They clobbered eight homers, smashed five doubles, and drew nine walks. They pounded fastballs. That was foreboding for Vince Velasquez, who started Sunday afternoon and likes to throw fastballs. He is a 24-year-old pitcher learning the intricacies of life as a starter while facing major-league lineups every fifth day. It is not always pretty. In a 5-1 Phillies win, Velasquez silenced an imposing (but depleted)

NEW YORK - The only good news to come out of the 12-1 beatdown by the Mets on Saturday night is that the Phillies are one day closer to finishing August. The month has been unforgiving to the starting rotation as the unit seems to be fading as the season winds down. Jeremy Hellickson allowed five runs in four innings to bring the rotation's ERA to 7.26 in 22 August games. It is the team's worst month since June 2006, when the starting pitchers registered a 7.36 ERA, and second worst since a 7.20 ERA in July 1961.

NEW YORK - The big, red apple rose in center field for the third time on Friday night as Adam Morgan kicked the pitching mound with disgust. The lefthander had yielded another home run - this time a fifth-inning grand slam by Wilmer Flores - and he was once again hurt by the long ball in a 9-4 loss to the Mets at Citi Field. Morgan has allowed eight home runs in his last 22 innings. He is averaging 2.24 home runs per nine innings, which is the worst rate among all major-league pitchers with at least 15 starts.

The sharp crack of the bat silenced the stadium. With two outs, bases loaded, and the game tied in the seventh inning, the Mets' Asdrubal Cabrera smacked a line drive. Leftfielder Cody Asche ran toward center, then slid. When he popped up, ball in his glove, fans erupted. Asche set an example as the Phillies beat the Mets, 4-2, Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park. Asche finished 1 for 3 with an RBI and a walk and was aided by the aggressiveness of veterans Ryan Howard and Carlos Ruiz.

Pete Mackanin tried to keep a straight face Friday afternoon, hours before the season's second half began with a 5-3 loss to the Mets, when he asked a question to which he well knew the answer. "What are we out of the wild card?" the Phillies manager said. Six games, an onlooker in his office replied. "Six games?" Mackanin said. "Why not? Let's set our sights high. " He stifled laughter. This was not to insult his team, which has been outscored by 89 runs in 91 games and overachieved in almost every area, but out of incredulity that it even served as a talking point in mid July.

NEW YORK - Tyler Goeddel remembers when he realized he could do it, too. He remembers the radar guns and the pro scouts hogging views behind home plate. Sometimes it was hard for parents to get seats. And Tyler remembers who was standing on the mound. Before his teens, Tyler watched his older brother, Erik, dominate the high school baseball circuit. And he saw the letters that came from "every college in the nation. " "That's what motivated me to know I want to go the same path," Tyler said.

It wasn't until Bonnie Bishop gave up on her dream that it came true. The Texas native had spent 12 years scuffling as an independent singer-songwriter without making much headway, even after having two of her songs recorded by Bonnie Raitt and another performed on the prime-time TV soap Nashville . It got to the point where she couldn't even afford Christmas presents for her family. So she retreated to her parents' home in the Lone Star State to regroup. "I couldn't keep doing it the way I was doing it," the 37-year-old says over the phone from Nashville.

With the recent opening of Moore College of Art & Design's juried alumni exhibition, consider the story of the first visual arts college for women in the United States: Moore's antecessor, the Philadelphia School of Design for Women (PSDW). Founded in 1848, PSDW was the first of several such institutions to appear in Boston, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati. However, art for art's sake was not the goal of philanthropist and PSDW founder Sarah Worthington Peter. At the time of the school's inception, thousands of unmarried and widowed women worked from home, which - in the 19th century - did not mean telecommuting in one's pajamas.

So it finally happened: After years of speculation, the Metropolitan Opera appointed Yannick Nézet-Séguin to replace James Levine as music director. Naturally, the opera world wants to know what that will look like. And they want to know now - although he doesn't fully take on the position until 2020-21 and opera companies work four years in advance. Nonetheless, in a Thursday-morning video interview from Osaka after a Philadelphia Orchestra tour concert, he says he'll be working with the Met as early as this fall.
