Pope John Paul II is expected to name at least 20 new cardinals this week, and church observers speculate that Philadelphia Archbishop Anthony J. Bevilacqua has an even chance of being among them. The archbishop said after celebrating Mass for charismatic Catholics at Villanova University Friday night that he had received no word from the Vatican about his getting a red hat. But prelates who are named to the College of Cardinals, which elects new popes, are given little advance notice of their appointments, according to church sources.

Around the Vatican, where cardinals and bishops and even monsignors are known to assume patrician airs, Archbishop John Foley stays down to earth. Strolling across the foyer of the Savoy Hotel, where he is about to address a conference, the Darby native says: "Let's wait here. " He slips inside a dim storage room strewn with suitcases and tablecloths and eases his ample frame onto a sofa. Moments later, a porter enters and does a double-take. "No, no," the man says: A distinguished prelate does not belong here.

In Peoria, Ariz., Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero, whose name reportedly appeared in the clinic records, also denied involvement.

NEW YORK - Encouraging signs out of Europe and a surprisingly strong report on the U.S. housing market drove the Dow Jones industrial average up more than 300 points Tuesday. It was the best day for stocks this month. The Spanish government pulled off a successful debt auction, and gauges of business and consumer confidence in Germany rose unexpectedly. Both helped ease worries about Europe's debt crisis. The dollar fell against the euro, and U.S. government bond prices dropped as traders shifted money out of the safest assets.

PLAXICO BURRESS stands 6-5 in a pair of sweatpants - and probably 6-7 when you include the old-school Phillies cap he wore yesterday upon his release from prison. That makes him a quarterback's red-zone dream, and the red hat makes him a Philadelphia dream, and, by the principles of the transitive property, or something, that makes for a red-hot rumor of Plax to the Eagles. That is the theory. Here is the reality: Burress' best season in the red zone came in 2007, more than a year before he accidentally shot himself in the leg in a club in New York and ended up being convicted under the city's no-nonsense gun laws.
