CAROLINA, P.R. -- For eight seconds about every other inning, the boisterous crowd at Estadio Municipal Roberto Clemente Walker Stadium gets silent. The horns cease and the chants for their beloved Puerto Rico squad calm to a hum as the tranquil sound of Samuel Hernandez's "Levanto Mis Manos" fill the stands.
This is the song, a Christian melody about raising your hands in glory, that serenades Puerto Rico's Juan Gonzalez every time he strolls to the plate during the 2007 Caribbean Series. During his heyday in Texas, Gonzalez often used Darth Vader's Imperial Death March as his melody of choice, but that was a different Gonzalez.
This one is older. He's wiser. He's also healthy and has his eyes set on 500 career home runs.
Gonzalez has 434 career home runs and has driven in 1,404 runs in his 17-year career with Texas, Detroit, Kansas City and Cleveland.
"I still can play and I couldn't before because I was hurt," said Gonzalez, who will be 38 in September. "I can't do anything about that anymore because that is history. I have a goal and that is I want to hit 500 home runs and maybe then I will retire. Maybe. We'll see what God has planned for me."
Gonzalez said at least four Major League teams are interested in signing him for the 2007 season, and he is looking forward to reporting to a club for Spring Training in a few weeks. According to published reports in Puerto Rico, the Angels, Tigers and Orioles have all expressed interest in signing the former two-time American League Most Valuable Player.
"I think he can still perform in the big leagues and I know he can still get a lot of RBIs," said Puerto Rico teammate and Red Sox infielder Alex Cora. "I think now he is a different Juan Gonzalez in the sense where he is not driving the ball out of the park, but this is not a real easy league to hit in. The strike zone is a little bit bigger. I think if he gets a shot, he can be very productive."
In 33 games for the Puerto Rico baseball league champion Carolina Gigantes, Gonzalez hit .281 with 18 RBIs and four home runs. In 12 playoff games, he hit .369 with three home runs and five RBIs.
Reserved and confident, Gonzalez flashes his muscular forearms when asked if his power has declined and is now a singles-only hitter. He can still hit the long ball a long way, he says.
"They don't really challenge me here, but I understand," Gonzalez said. "It's not the same quality as the Major Leagues. There are a lot of Rookie League, [Class A] and Double-A pitchers here. To face Major League pitchers is different, and I know I can still do it."
That is to be determined, but he sure looks like it. A lean Gonzalez estimates he weighs about 230 pounds and said he works out every day. He can still throw, he says, but is most proud of the fact that he is healthy and no longer feeling any pain in his legs.
"I'm great, thanks to God," Gonzalez said. "I'm playing here and working hard. We won the league and I did my job. I am waiting on the [Major League] clubs and see what will happen."
Originally signed by the Rangers, Gonzalez played 11 consecutive seasons with Texas from 1989-99, winning two AL MVP Awards during that stretch, before being traded to Detroit for the 2000 season. In 2001, he hit 35 home runs with 140 RBIs with Cleveland, but has not been the same since because of a series of back and leg injuries.
He hit .282 with eight home runs and 35 RBIs in the first of two injury-plagued seasons during his second stint with the Rangers starting in 2002, and he played in only 33 games for Kansas City in 2004 because of a hamstring problem. He attempted a comeback the next year, signing with Cleveland in 2005 for $600,000, but he injured himself in his first at-bat of the season and did not play another Major League game.
He still hasn't. Gonzalez spent last season playing for the Long Island Ducks in the independent Atlantic League. "Everyday players have a hard enough time hitting, but imagine being a guy who does that for a living and then has to stop for two years because of injuries," Cora said. "That's not an easy thing to do."

AP) -- More wintry weather was forecast for Texas on Wednesday, while New England was expected to see the season's coldest air so far.
Snow and freezing rain were expected to linger over central and southern Texas Wednesday morning.
The precipitation was expected to taper off in the afternoon as it moves eastward, though scattered showers were likely across the rest of the Gulf states.
Light snow was forecast for the Northern Rockies and Plains, while light rain was expected in northwestern Washington and southern California.
Much of the nation was to continue battling cold weather. Wind chill values as low as 30 to 40 below zero were possible in northern New England.
The Southwest and Southeast, however, were expected to reach the 50s and 60s. Temperatures in southern Florida could climb into the 70s.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Tuesday ranged from a low of 34 below zero at Embarrass, Minnesota, to a high of 84 at Opa Locka, Florida.Frozen nation

: Bungie's Frank O'Connor, under his NeoGAF alias, Stinkles, has debunked part of this rumor (twice). According to Frankie, Brutes will not be playable characters. The video may still come to pass, though. We'll just have to wait and see.
We get tips from time to time, some of them small and some of them big. The tip we received this morning, however, is a doozy. Coming from the blog of YLA G -- creator of the kickass Google application, GooMGC -- the info goes something like this: Brutes will be playable in Halo 3. Not only that, but a video confirming this fact should hit Marketplace on December 20th (I knew Bungie wouldn't forget my birthday). The video is supposedly seven minutes long and gives us backstory on the Brutes and tells us what skills they will have at their disposal. Even better, 2 and a half minutes of the video should be actual gameplay. This is strictly a rumor at this point, as the article has no source listed, but it wouldn't surprise us if it's true. In fact, it makes perfect sense considering how many new Brute weapons have been announced for Halo 3.
Playable Brutes opens up many questions of course. Will they have berserker attacks? Will they still have their dome protecting, headshot deflecting skull caps? Will Brutes be in the beta? Does this mean that Elites are no longer playable? Oh the possibilities. Assuming this is true, what do you want to see from the Brute class?Brutes will NOT be playable in Halo 3 Yeah, remember that whole Ã¢â‚¬Å“YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to be playing as Brutes in Halo 3 FER SUREÃ¢â‚¬Â post I threw up a while back? Turns out it was a either wicked rumor or misunderstanding but either way, you will NOT be playing as Brutes in Halo 3. But IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re wondering to yourself, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Why is this post any different than the last one. What makes this one authentic?Ã¢â‚¬Â The fact that Mr. Bungie himself, Frankie, denied this himself on the Neogaf forums (under his nom de plume of Stinkles) is authentic enough for me. In the thread Neogaf has going on for this, he eventually posted this first:
Lols. You do not play as Brutes in Halo 3, but donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let that fact stop you complaining about it.
Then went on to sayÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
If I were you, I would read the thread and say to myself, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Whatever the content of this doc, I probably shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be leaking info about it on the forums, while simultaneously admitting I work for MS.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ne pensez-vous pas?
And once more wth feeling: You donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t play as Brutes in Halo 3.
After an apparent co-worker of YLA G (the leaker of this whole shebang) continued to insist that YLA G was posting the truth since he too got the same e-mail. Can no one in Europe keep a secret? Anyway, I would trust Stinkles (as Frankie will from now on be known) over pretty much anybody when it comes to Halo news and if he says we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t play as Brutes, we arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t playing as BrutesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦unless he is being sneaky about it somehow, but I doubt it. Usually heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll coyly hint at something but here we get a flat out denial.
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only the Brutes though. Frankie didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t care to comment on whether or not weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be getting a new Halo 3 7 minutes video on the 20th or not. I consider that to be an indirect confirmation that weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be getting that video. 7 minutes is pretty freaking long though and the Brutes section of it is said to only be a few minutes long, might we be getting an official release date confirmation as a nice little Christmas bonus or maybe a peak at single player? IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m probably being overly optimistic but dammit if Halo 3 doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get me hot and bothered.
