Quote: "I would love to see him break it. It wouldn't bother me at all. I don't know how many years I'm going to have it."

-- Hank Aaron, before Monday's opener in Seattle, on Ken Griffey's chances of breaking his record for career home runs. It's a fact: The Yankees are 26-27 in road openers.

Who's hot: Roger Clemens of the Yankees, who had a no-decision Monday, has not lost since last May 29 against the Mariners in Toronto.

Who's not: The Devil Rays' Randy Winn and John Flaherty combined to strand 13 runners Monday.

On deck: David Wells, who pitched a perfect game for the Yankees last year and was traded for Clemens in the off-season, makes his first start for the Blue Jays today.
