C LEARWATER, Fla. - When I'm King of the World, Chase Utley Edition . . . Hitting will not be as easy as Utley made it look Saturday in his first seven rehab at-bats.

Jimmie Johnson showed what he could do on the track at Dover International Speedway last season, punctuating his spectacular rookie campaign with a pair of dominating victories. In town yesterday to promote Dover's June 1 Winston Cup race, the 27-year-old Californian handled tough topics as deftly as he tamed the Monster Mile. "For safety purposes, we should do away with racing back to the line under yellow," Johnson said of a NASCAR issue.

Feel as if you're putting your life on the yellow line whenever you cross a street? Well, you are, and it may be getting worse. New middle-of-the-street signs warning drivers that pedestrians may be crossing are coming down for now - themselves victims of the area's highway mayhem. In the Philadelphia region in 2000, there were more than 4,200 accidents involving cars and pedestrians - eight times as many as in the Pittsburgh area, which is second on the state hit list. A recent study, in fact, showed pedestrians to be in greater danger in Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey than in the New York area.

It had to happen. This home-run derby has had too many happy heroes, too many joyfully sentimental plots, too many hugs and high-fives and history-making moments. What this compelling story lacked was something as integral to baseball as, well, a home run. Controversy. Yesterday, Mark McGwire provided plenty of that on what should have been - and still might be - his 66th home run. The moment that might be replayed forever came in the fifth inning of the Cardinals' 11-6 win over Milwaukee, two at-bats after the St. Louis slugger had extended his record to 65 to match his 10-year-old son Matt's preseason prediction.
