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.

There's a song called "Funeral Dress" that's the title track to the 2005 debut album by the terrific, little-heard Ohio rock band Wussy, as well as the group's 2011 acoustic reworking of the album called, aptly enough, Funeral Dress II . "Funeral Dress" is a typical Wussy song - an even collaboration between guitarists and singers Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker that manages to turn a fairly grim subject - in this case, death - into a bracing, catchy,...

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.

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.

A FEW WEEKS ago, coach Steve Quigley was so worried about how few kids came out for the first varsity football team in Strawberry Mansion High School history that he drove through the neighborhood searching for players. "I drove up and down Susquehanna, Lehigh, Diamond," Quigley said. "I pulled one kid over who was riding his bike and told him, 'We're having physicals for the new varsity football team.' He never showed up. Another kid said his girlfriend had a baby and he had to work to support them.

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.
