Hot corner

August 26, 1998

Quote: "This is a pretty awesome situation to come into. If I had my choice of all teams, at this point I would've taken the Cubs. I'm going to a familiar situation and now I'm in a pennant race. I love pitching and I love pitching under pressure." -- Mike Morgan, on returning to the Cubs, for whom he pitched from 1992 to 1995.

It's a fact: Marlins owner Wayne Huizenga recently paid more for his house on Nantucket, $7.5 million, than the payroll of his current roster, reports Peter Gammons in the Boston Globe.

Who's hot: The Astros have won 15 of 19 and 22 of their past 29 games.

Who's not: The Braves' Tony Graffanino has struck out nine times in his past 12 at-bats.

On deck: The Braves' John Smoltz (12-2) goes for his eighth straight victory today against the Padres.
