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.

"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.

Fred McConnell has farmed strawberries, sweet corn, potatoes, eggplant and a host of other fruits and vegetables on his 100-plus acres off Green Lane near Montgomery County Park since World War II. His father owned the same farm dating back to the time of World War I. McConnell and other local strawberry growers may mark 1989 with yet another war - the war with Mother Nature. Yearly rainfall in the Delaware Valley through Thursday was 23.01 inches, 3.93 inches over the normal yearly rainfall average of 19.08.

At Specca Farms in Burlington County, Bill Hlubik stooped down in a large furrowed field, picked a plump red strawberry and took a bite. "That's the best berry I've had in my life, and I'm not just saying that," he said enthusiastically. "Wow, that is a good berry. " Hlubik, a professor and agricultural agent for Rutgers Cooperative Extension, ought to know. He helped develop and test the new "Rutgers Scarlet" strawberry, which is now being praised by farmers and consumers as particularly sweet, juicy, and flavorful - superior to strawberries shipped in from California, Florida, and Mexico.

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.

CASHING IN ON BANK ERROR, IF ONLY FOR AN AFTERNOON Howard Jenkins became a multimillionaire on his lunch break last Friday. And, no, he didn't rob a bank. In fact, it was a computer error that put an extra $88 million in his account. It all started when he lost his checkbook and called NationsBank in Tampa, Fla., to put a hold on his account. When he went to make a deposit, he was told to use an automated teller machine outside to check on the account. When he withdrew $10, the receipt said his balance was $889,437.

'Freckleface Strawberry the Musical' The long: Julianne Moore - idolized by actors, redheads, and smart parents everywhere - wrote an autobiographical storybook that became six storybooks and this 70-minute, Off-Broadway hit about a 7-year-old girl who wishes her freckles weren't so . . . different. The short: Fun, fast, feel-good musical boldly boosts big kids' confidence. The demo: Elementary school through junior high. (Although we can think of a few news-monopolizing adults who could stand to learn Freckleface's lesson, too.)

ABANDONED AS a city water source over 50 years ago, East Park Reservoir reverted to nature and became a pristine lake, home to hundreds of native and migratory bird species but fenced off from its Strawberry Mansion neighborhood. That will change today when North Philly's hidden Fairmount Park oasis is reborn as "The Discovery Center" - a 50-acre, Outward Bound/National Audubon Society lake-and-woodlands paradise where, beginning next summer, thousands of Philly kids can feel their spirits soar on the high ropes course.

The sky was the color of ash and the field at West Philadelphia looked like a sloppy, brownish-green gumbo, but the scene Thursday must have appeared like a beautiful daydream to the High School of the Future football team. "Oh, my God," team manager Justin Billups said. "Am I dreaming? Did y'all really just win?" That's right, the Firebirds, who went winless last season, defeated Strawberry Mansion, 20-7. And the main author of Billups' incredulity was his cousin, Marvin Dozier, who was all-around spectacular.

Finding an affordable place of her own was so important to Latoya Wright that when she learned that the Philadelphia Housing Authority was building green homes in Strawberry Mansion, she stood in line at 1 in the morning in the hope of securing a spot. The mother of two had been on the waiting list for public housing for more than a decade. The hours in line, said Wright, 31, were worth it. This week, she and her daughters - Mahagony, 13, and Jayda, 6 - will move out of her sister's home into a two-bedroom townhouse at 2800 Oakdale St., the site of 12 new affordable housing units in the North Philadelphia neighborhood.
