Hot corner

June 25, 1999

Quote: "We saw a lot of people getting drunk in the [neighboring `Bullpen Bar' at Comiskey Park]. We were telling lies about how good we were in college. We played some trivia and watched the NBA game."

Mike Trombley, Twins reliever, on how he and some of his teammates passed the time in the bullpen during a 1-hour, 31-minute rain delay Wednesday night. It's a fact: Frank Thomas became the eighth player in White Sox history to reach 1,500 hits.

Who's hot: The Yankees' Bernie Williams is batting .556 in six contests since moving to the No. 2 spot in the lineup.

Who's not: The Devil Rays' Jose Canseco went 0-for-12 in the three-game series against the Yankees.

On deck: The Mariners begin their final series at the Kingdome tonight, a four-game set against the Rangers. The Mariners move into Safeco Field on July 15.
