The Cincinnati Reds and officials in Hamilton County, Ohio, have agreed to build a riverfront ballpark downtown, one that could open in 2003. The cost of the stadium, with an agreed-upon 30-year lease, has been capped at $235 million. Cinergy Field, which opened as Riverfront Stadium in 1970, will be demolished to make way for the new park. Cubs catcher Sandy Martinez dropped his appeal of a two-game suspension from the National League for his part in a brawl with the Braves on May 25. Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro and Indians righthander Bartolo Colon were named the American League's player and pitcher of the month for June.

Cincinnati's Barry Larkin met with general manager Jim Bowden for about two hours yesterday to consider the shortstop's request for a trade. Afterward, Larkin reiterated his desire to play for a contender, but Bowden said any trade was a "dead issue" right now. Larkin asked for a trade about two weeks ago because the Reds are rebuilding, according to Bowden. The Reds talked to four clubs but could not make a deal, he said. Montreal placed pitcher Mike Maddux on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained tendon in his right elbow.

Eric Anthony called Eddie Taubensee the hero. Taubensee said it was just his turn. Both hit pinch homers in Cincinnati's five-run eighth inning yesterday as the Reds out-homered the visiting Atlanta Braves to win, 9-8. Jerome Walton and Reggie Sanders also homered for Cincinnati, while David Justice, Charlie O'Brien and Chipper Jones connected for the Braves. "I've never been in a game where there were two pinch-hit home runs in an inning," Anthony said. "That's almost unheard of. "To me, Eddie's was the big blow.

Snow flurries, a touch of the flu and the red-hot Colorado Rockies - not exactly a pitcher's ideal elixir for success. It was a recipe for disaster yesterday for Cincinnati starter Ricky Bones as Ellis Burks homered twice and Andres Galarraga added four hits to help the Rockies extend their winning streak to six with a 13-4 rout of the Reds. On an afternoon with light snow and a wind-chill near 6, every Colorado starter had at least one hit, and the Rockies finished with 19 for the second straight game.

There was at least one place in this town where people seemed reluctant to talk about Pete Rose's legal victory, where smiles were scarce and answers were terse. That would be the Reds' clubhouse after yesterday's 7-0 loss to Orel Hershiser and the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I'm not talking," Reds leftfielder Ken Griffey said, turning his back on reporters who had hoped to ask him about his manager and former teammate. "I don't want to talk about Pete," rightfielder Paul O'Neill said.

The Cincinnati Reds are a lot like the Phillies. Both teams will attempt to play with the big boys next season despite low payrolls and diminished expectations. Both have signature players - righthander Curt Schilling for the Phils and shortstop Barry Larkin for the Reds - who have suggested to management that they should be traded. As baseball's winter meetings got under way yesterday at the sprawling Opryland complex, however, it was the Reds who seized the spotlight with the first announcement.

GABE POLSKY loves hockey. Got good at it. Played at Yale. Wasn't good enough to play in the NHL, which is just as well. "I can't watch it," he told the Daily News yesterday. "It's chippy and choppy, and they can barely complete three passes in a row. " Polsky likes his hockey fast and fluid, which is part of the reason he wrote and directed the critically acclaimed "Red Army" documentary that opens tomorrow at the Ritz Five in Society Hill. Another reason is he's the son of Russian immigrants who, he said, came to America with "$500 and two suitcases.

YES, TERRI Matthews looked fierce in that K. Nicole mermaid gown at last night's red gala kickoff for Philly Small Business Fashion Week. But don't let the pretty fool ya. Since landing here less than two years ago, Matthews has become one of Philly's biggest "It" girls, catching the attention of producers of not one but two local reality TV shows and also being named one of XIX's Most Fashionable Women in Philadelphia. Admirers have been known to flock to local stores seeking the exact same eyeglass frames she got from Omega Optical, or the Bond No. 9 signature fragrance she purchases from Saks Fifth Avenue.

It was just before 2 a.m. when Mary Noll's cellphone rang to the tune of the Beatles' "Help!" - and the 60-year-old Lower Gwynedd woman knew she was needed urgently. In nearby Norristown, firefighters were battling a four-alarm fire at an apartment complex. Noll, a volunteer disaster response captain for the Red Cross in eastern Montgomery County, began making calls to assemble her team for the night. Starting early that morning and working throughout the day, 10 volunteers and four Red Cross staffers gathered food and medical supplies, set up a shelter for evacuees at a high school, provided counseling, and eventually found hotel rooms for those still displaced the next night.

Kat Mittman Kobak planned to design jewelry for this year's Grammy Awards attendees by personalizing her signature silver, sparkling, beaded choker. But then, three days before the pieces were to be shipped off, Kobak's publicist got the names of exactly who would be getting Kat Designs baubles: Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Miranda Lambert, and John Mayer. The dainty necklaces with edgy panther and arrowhead charms weren't quite right anymore - especially now that Mayer was in the mix. Kobak would have to start from scratch.

When Sunny Jain was 5 years old, he traveled to India from his home in Rochester, N.Y., for his uncle's wedding. "It was the first time I saw an Indian brass band," says the leader of the boisterous dhol-and-brass octet Red Baraat. The band, which has just released its third studio album, Gaadi of Truth , will play Saturday night at the Ardmore Music Hall. "I remember taking a nap and waking up and I came outside and the baraat" - the groom's wedding procession - "had already started," says Jain, speaking from his home in Brooklyn.

In the rarefied world of vintage wine, a perfectly preserved lot of bottles ranging from three decades to 87 years old is usually the province of a Sotheby's wine auction or a high-roller market in Hong Kong. This is not the kind of liquid treasure usually found in a South Jersey discount liquor shop wedged between a ShopRite and a Great Clips salon. But there was wine buyer Andrea Billick, understandably nervous as the "Ron Burgundy" Pandora station played in the background at Joe Canal's in West Deptford.

There were midriffs and cutouts. Jumpsuits and tea-length dresses. Shades of navy and long sleeves. Of course, there were a few sweetheart necklines and the obligatory ballgowns. But for the most part, celebrities on Sunday night's Golden Globes red carpet let stylists experiment with new silhouettes. And the result - the offical beginning of the 2015 red carpet season was refreshingly modern. It's hard to pick a favorite, but among the best- dressed of the night was Julianne Moore in a nearly blinding silver Givenchy.

WHEN AN early-December fire consumed their kitchen and filled their North Philadelphia house with smoke, Sharon McCurdy and her adult son, Wilson Washington, fled onto 27th Street near Somerset. Their beloved gray-and-white cat, Tigger, was missing. Once the fire scene was secure, former firefighter Jennifer Leary and her Red Paw Emergency Relief Team responded to Tigger's absence as intensely as the Red Cross responds to families displaced by disaster. Leary found Tigger at the scene of the fire, boarded him in her house, took him to a veterinarian and placed him in Red Paw's network of temporary foster homes until he could return to his. After staying with relatives, McCurdy and Washington were able to move back home just before Christmas.

The latest move in the Phillies' rebuilding effort came Wednesday, injecting another young arm into the minor-league system and ensuring that a younger outfield takes the field this spring. Twelve days after acquiring a pair of young arms for Jimmy Rollins, the franchise's all-time hits leader, the Phillies shipped veteran outfielder Marlon Byrd and cash considerations to the Cincinnati Reds for righthanded pitching prospect Ben Lively. Lively, 22, projects as a back-of-the-rotation starter.

WITHIN a 2-week span before the end of 2014, Ruben Amaro Jr. has jettisoned two everyday players from the Phillies' lineup. A dozen days after Jimmy Rollins officially was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the general manager sent outfielder Marlon Byrd to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for pitching prospect Ben Lively on Wednesday. The Phillies also sent cash to Cincinnati to complete the deal. Byrd, who turns 38 in August, hit a career-high 25 home runs in 2014. He also struck out a career-high 185 times; only Ryan Howard struck out more among major league hitters.
