Quote: "People in Houston must be thinking, 'What's in that coffee you all drink up there?' " -- Mariners outfielder Jay Buhner, a Houston resident, on the deal that sent Randy Johnson to the Astros.

It's a fact: Yesterday's crowd of 37,495, Detroit's second-largest of the season, was bolstered by the Tigers' second Beanie Baby giveaway of the season.

Who's hot: The Mariners' Ken Cloude (McDonogh) has won four straight after going 0-6 in his previous 11 starts.

Who's not: The Tigers' Brian Powell has given up at least two homers in five of his eight starts, and 21 of the 34 runs he's allowed have scored on homers.

On deck: Pitcher Jeff Juden, acquired from the Brewers on Friday, will make his first start for the Angels on Tuesday against the Tigers.
