GWYNN SPEAKS: Breaking his self-imposed silence, OF Tony Gwynn says he will play for the Padres again next season, even if Jack Clark is still there.

"The question isn't whether I can play with him, it's whether he can play with me," Gwynn said in an interview in yesterday's editions of the New York Times.

It was the first public statement in three weeks from Gwynn, who will receive $2 million next season. He left the team in mid-September after breaking a finger, saying he didn't want to talk to the media or his teammates until next season. He turned down a challenge in the newspapers from team captain Garry Templeton to meet with his teammates and air their differences.

Gwynn also was upset when a Tony Gwynn doll, with the arms and legs cut off, was hanged by a chain in the dugout. A member of the grounds crew later admitted to the deed.

Clark ripped into Gwynn on Sept. 28: "It's always everything to make {himself} look good and everybody else is a bad guy."


The Orioles reinstated Ps Mark Williamson and Brian DuBois from DL and waived P Dorn Taylor.
