If Darryl Strawberry is going to play again in New York, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner isn't ready to announce it. Yesterday, Steinbrenner said only that he and Strawberry's agent have talked. The Record of Hackensack, N.J., reported that Steinbrenner is expected to complete a deal with Strawberry, 33, the outfielder who is serving a 60-day suspension from baseball for testing positive for cocaine. The suspension ends June 24. Yankees general manager Gene Michael said he isn't involved in any talks between the onetime Met and Bill Goodstein, Strawberry's new agent.

Darryl Stawberry won't find out if he's being suspended or for how long until Monday at the earliest, according to New York Yankees manager Joe Torre. "How he's doing, that's our concern now," said Torre, who planned to call Strawberry this weekend. "There's not much I can offer him at this point in time other than support. " Strawberry failed a drug test Jan. 19, violating terms of his probation from a no-contest plea to charges of cocaine possession and soliciting a prostitute in Tampa last spring.

They were inseparable. Even in death. Gennie High Sr. could have saved himself from the fire that killed him yesterday. But he went back for his invalid wife. And both perished. High, 52, and his stroke-suffering wife, Carolyn, 50, were found on the second-floor landing of the three-story Philadelphia Housing Authority rowhouse where they lived on Euclid Street at 31st. "He was home every day taking care of his wife," neighbor Sam Thompson said of Gennie High. "He never went anywhere without her. He was very devoted.

THE SIGN on the door of Tropical Heat reads: "Do Not Enter with Mask or Hoodie. If So You Are Now Trespassing. " So the guys in hoodies waited outside at closing time.

Cops say Thomas, 29, was fatally shot and her 34-year-old friend shot in the arm about 2:35 a.m. yesterday in the city's latest violent gunpoint robbery.

When Darryl Strawberry strolled to the plate in the top of the sixth inning, a crowd of 47,744 at Shea Stadium stood and jeered. When he lined the first pitch he saw 396 feet over the left-centerfield fence, the jeers exploded into cheers, and suddenly - if but for a brief moment - it was 1986 again and Strawberry owned New York. Wearing a Dodgers uniform and sporting a .214 batting average, both of which fit him somewhat oddly, Strawberry returned to New York last night. While the crowd booed him whenever he popped out of the dugout and pelted him with strawberries, Strawberry expressed a lingering regret that he was "forced" to pursue free agency and leave New York.

ATHENS, Greece - Greek officials on Thursday promised "swift and exemplary" punishment for three strawberry plantation foremen who allegedly shot and injured 29 Bangladeshi laborers protesting late pay. Police are seeking the three suspects who disappeared after Wednesday's shootings, which occurred during a confrontation with about 200 Bangladeshi farm workers in the country's rural south who say they have not been paid for half a year. Seven Bangladeshi workers were still receiving hospital treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

NOT MANY players get the chance to play for their basketball idol. You can count Raekwon Dial among the fortunate. Not only does the 5-9 Strawberry Mansion guard play for his boyhood basketball inspiration, the senior used his coach's advice yesterday to help the Knights (6-12, 4-8) upend host Mastery Charter North, 47-38, and earn a Public League C playoff spot. Knights coach Matthew Johnson, a 2006 Mansion grad who also graduated from Gwynedd-Mercy College, has been an important figure for Dial.

FEDERAL prosecutor Robert Reed spent 40 years putting violent young criminals in prison for life. Linda Cliatt-Wayman spent 30 years teaching and administering in Philadelphia public schools, trying to save as many kids as she could from ending up in front of prosecutors like Reed, or worse, from sudden death on the streets of Strawberry Mansion. Reed was passionate about prosecution. In U.S. v. Larry Johnson and Ronnie Robinson, he got both defendants sentenced to 117 years without parole for several 1994 armed carjackings that included torture and sexual assault.

A FRANTIC young man kicked in the door of a Strawberry Mansion rowhouse yesterday afternoon and was greeted by the stench of charred wood and kerosene as his family fell apart outside. "Mom, it's all burned up in here," the young man yelled before rushing outside. The man didn't know that just hours earlier, his elderly grandfather narrowly escaped a fire there or that his housemate, Martha Frazier, 92, was found dead amid the wreckage in a second-floor bedroom of the blue brick house on Stanley Street near Norris.

THERE WASN'T a body inside the Strawberry Mansion house where detectives were called by a terrified resident Wednesday night, but the bloody sheets, tarps and gloves that were there made it clear that a gruesome discovery would be made somewhere, sooner or later. It didn't take long. Crime Scene Unit cops and members of the city Medical Examiner's Office found dismembered human remains yesterday scattered across a weeded lot at York Street and Sedgley Avenue, about a mile away from the grisly rowhouse that cops visited earlier in the week.
