Hot corner

August 04, 1998

Quote: "I'm not Randy Johnson and I'll never be Randy Johnson." -- Paul Spoljaric, Johnson's replacement in Seattle's rotation after the former Cy Young Award winner was traded to the Houston Astros.

It's a fact: The first batter the Red Sox's Dennis Eckersley faced Sunday and retired -- the Angels' Troy Glaus -- was born 16 months after Eck made his major-league debut with the 1975 Indians.

Who's hot: A homer by the Red Sox's Mo Vaughn Sunday against the Angels extended his hitting streak to 10 games.

Who's not: The White Sox may move Jaime Navarro (8-13, 6.10 ERA) into a closer or setup role if the right-handed starter continues struggling.

On deck: Andy Pettitte was scratched from his scheduled start today for the Yankees because of a slightly strained left shoulder muscle and will be replaced by Mike Buddie.
