Baseball's Hot Stove

burns to a crisp

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Joe Carter
moved closer to the San Diego Padres, as
rumors began to turn into reality at baseball's
winter meetings Tuesday.
"I know San Diego is a great place to play,
you couldn't go wrong there," Carter said from
his home in Kansas. "It's definitely true that
something finally seems ready to happen.
"I know it's nice there," he said. "And I
know the Padres have a good team." *
Free agents Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd and Bill
Gullickson appeared headed for new homes, and
Hubie Brooks, Pete O'Brien, Storm Davis and
Craig Lefferts went looking.
Philadelphia thought about sending out-
fielder Von Hayes to Los Angeles and also
considered a deal with the Padres.
Only one shopping day was left before the
end of the meetings, but teams often stay past
the official close in an effort to finish
business. So it appeared again as big names, as
usual, began popping up.
Cleveland and San Diego reached agreement
late Monday night on a deal to send Carter to
the Padres, provided they can sign him to a
new contract. The conditional deal must be
completed by Wednesday or it is automatically

off, although the teams can agree to extend the
THE INDIANS would receive highly
rated catching prospect Sandy Alomar, Jr. and
others, possibly Chris James and talented
minor leaguer Carlos Baerga. The clubs said
Tuesday that they had agreed on a pool of
players to pick a package, and Cleveland gave
the Padres permission to negotiate with Carter.
Jim Turner, Carter's agent, said he met
with Padres manager and vice president Jack
McKeon for 1 1/2 hours Tuesday morning,
"and we'll meet again in the afternoon. Never
did money enter our first conversation. There
were other areas we wanted to discuss, and San
Diego answered them positively. We will talk
about financial terms later in the day."
It will likely take a multi-year contract at
$3 million per season for San Diego to sign
Carter. The Padres, however, went into the deal

knowing they would need a lot of money and
are almost sure to spend it.
"If we get a chance to sit down and neg-
otiate, we'll be done without too much delay,"
McKeon predicted.
Carter, 29, hit 35 home runs with 105
RBIs and batted .243 last season. He has
averaged 31 homers and 108 RBIs in his last
four years.
Alomar, 23, drove in 101 runs at Class
AAA Las Vegas last season and was the minor
league Player-of-the-Year. He has played a few
games for the Padres in each of the last two
seasons, but has not been able to break into
the starting lineup because of All-Star catcher
Benito Santiago.
ON THE free-agent front, the two main
players stayed put. Robin Yount apparently
will not make a decision until after the winter
meetings as he tried to weigh his loyalty to
Milwaukee against new opportunities with the

California Angels. Mark Davis, coveted by
San Diego and other clubs, seems in no hurry
to make up his mind.
Boyd may be ready to accept Montreal's
offer of a one-year contract worth $750,000.
Gullickson, in Japan for the last two seasons,
has a verbal agreement with Houston for a one-
year pact worth $1.5 million.
Brooks' agent, Richie Bry, was at the
winter meetings and planned to meet with a
few teams.
Brooks is wanted by the Dodgers, Chicago
Cubs and Detroit.
Lefferts attended the meetings and attracted
immediate interest. San Diego, which is trying
to re-sign Davis, wants Lefferts - especially
if it trades reliever Greg Harris to Philadelphia.
O'Brien has been offered a four-year $7.4
million contract by Detroit. The Chicago
White Sox are showing interest while several
clubs are after Storm Davis, a 19-game winner
with Oakland.
In a minor deal, the New York Mets traded
pitcher John Mitchell and outfielder Joaquin
Contreras to Baltimore for outfielder Keith
Hughes and pitcher Cesar Mejia. Mitchell, 23,
is 3-8 in brief stints with the Mets.
