* Talk about progress. The White Sox are selling seats from the old Comiskey Park through computerized TicketMaster outlets. The seats sell for $250, and all proceeds go to the White Sox charities. This is all well and good, but how do they get them to come out of that little machine?
* Expos OF David Martinez had 4 hits in an April 21 game, tying his career high. He has had 4 hits in a game 4 times -- twice as a member of the Cubs and twice as a member of the Expos -- but all 4 of those games have been at Montreal's Olympic Stadium.
* When Orioles OF Dwight Evans threw out White Sox C Ron Karkovice at second base Wednesday, he regained sole possession of second place on the all-time outfield assist list at 152. Jesse Barfield had pulled abreast of Evans with his 151st assist Monday night. Dave Winfield is the all-time leader at 156. Evans got his 153rd on Friday.
