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.

Ending months of input and speculation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Tuesday added to its list of threatened species a small shorebird called the red knot, whose round-trip migration of nearly 20,000 miles includes stops on Delaware Bay every spring to refuel on horseshoe crab eggs. The bird's dramatic decline has been blamed by many on aggressive harvesting of the crabs, which are used as bait in other fisheries. However, the red knot is the first bird whose listing identifies climate change as a principal threat to its survival, said Dan Ashe, director of the Fish and Wildlife Service.

Gold has moved beyond deck-the-halls festive into the glitzy realm of must-have fashion. It's the season for gleaming flecks to sparkle on fluttering eyelids and glisten on mistletoe-ready lips. A bronzy link chain, instead of a ribbon, on tuxedo-style trousers is happy-hour sultry. And shimmering, silky pantsuits are both retro and relevant. Once civilization's most sought-after metal, gold shines brightest this year in classic yellow. But copper and rose blends, especially on sequined blouses, are trending chic, too. Unlike in decades past, however, the granddaddy of precious metals no longer feels arrogant or garish.

  The Red Knot, a shorebird which has undergone a drastic decline in recent years, will be listed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act, according to the New Jersey Audubon. The action, which is expected to be announced next week, is a critical step toward the long-term protection and recovery of the species, said New Jersey Audubon, which has long addressed issues related to the Red Knot and other shorebirds. The listing would mean that the species meets the Endangered Species Act criteria of being likely to become in danger of extinction in the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range.

THE EAGLES were rolling, first-and-10 at the Dallas 20, leading 14-7 in the second quarter of what would become their 33-10 Thanksgiving victory over the Cowboys. Jeremy Maclin had just toured the entire width and more than half the length of the field on a diagonal path, taking a short Mark Sanchez pass 58 yards. The Cowboys were reeling. First snap after the big play, Sanchez dropped back, looked at Darren Sproles on a screen to his right, saw there were blue shirts in front of Sproles, and fired farther down the same sideline to a wide-open Brad Smith, who had thrown a perfunctory block on the screen setup and now had maybe one Dallas player between him and the end zone.

DETROIT - The Flyers' road woes continued Wednesday night as they fell, 5-2, to the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena and held a players-only meeting after the game. For the Flyers, losers of six straight road games, the wheels are coming off. Four games ago, general manager Ron Hextall tore into them for their listless effort in a 2-0 loss to the Rangers. After Monday's 1-0 shootout loss to the Islanders and again after their latest defeat Wednesday, coach Craig Berube criticized some of his players' effort.

GOOD NEWS for impatient Phillies fans seeking change, although there are still 84 days until pitchers and catchers convene in Clearwater, Fla.: Baseball's offseason Richter scale registered its first big waves when the Boston Red Sox delivered a one-two punch to teams seeking free-agent hitters. Boston swiped both Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval off the open market in a 24-hour span Monday. While signing former Marlins and Dodgers All-Star Ramirez and longtime Giants fan favorite Sandoval wouldn't seem to have an effect on the Phillies, the Red Sox' Monday spending spree will ignite the hot stove's fire, by way of a domino effect.

PHOENIX - It was inevitable that at some point someone who covers another team was going to ask Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. about the availability of his most coveted player. A reporter from Boston broke that ice Wednesday, the final day of these general managers meetings. The question was this: How do you think teams weigh the option of going after an elite free-agent pitcher seeking a nine-figure contract, as opposed to a pitcher with a somewhat smaller contract that requires them to also give up prospects?

JOHN KRAMER has no problem admitting that he jumped out of a speeding Corvette on Monday, sending the candy-apple-red sports car careening into the Delaware River. "I just wanted to get rid of it," Kramer, 50, told the Daily News in a telephone interview last night. "I was sick and tired of everybody fighting over a car I paid $36,000 for. " The saga of how the car - which Kramer says he bought in summer 2013 as a birthday present for his oldest daughter - ended up in the river is a long, bitter story featuring marital problems and personal tragedy.

New Jersey's controversial red-light cameras are likely to go dark next month, as the five-year experimental program expires with no legislative push to renew it. Supporters of the cameras say the program has improved safety, while opponents contend the cameras have served only to enrich local and state governments. The program was scheduled to expire Dec. 16, unless the Legislature renews it. No such legislation has been introduced. There are 76 camera-equipped intersections in 25 New Jersey towns, including in the South Jersey communities of Cherry Hill, Gloucester Township, Stratford, Glassboro, Deptford, and Monroe Township.

Democrat Tom Wolf won big on Tuesday in Pennsylvania, but he won alone. Nationally, he was the only Democrat to knock off a sitting Republican governor in the nine states President Obama had carried twice, a bright blue spot in a bloody red night for his party. Even shaky GOP incumbents in Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida, and Maine survived. Republicans also took control of the Senate and increased their margin in the House. "I think the people of Pennsylvania voted for me not thinking about any national trend, but what was going on in Pennsylvania," Wolf said Wednesday as he thanked voters at a diner in Manchester, near his hometown of Mount Wolf.
