Hot corner

July 01, 1999

Quote: "I think ownership will be smart enough to change the dimensions if they see a lot of guys start leaving or not want to come here." -- Ken Griffey on Safeco Field, the Mariners' new home, which might not be the home run haven the Kingdome was.

It's a fact: The Devil Rays' Jose Canseco needs two home runs to become the first player in major-league history to hit 30 or more in a season with four different teams.

Who's hot: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez is 14-for-28 with four home runs and 12 RBIs in his past six games.

Who's not: Yankees second baseman Chuck Knoblauch committed his 15th error and was doubled off first base yesterday.

On deck: Tigers coach Lance Parrish probably will act as manager tomorrow and Saturday in place of manager Larry Parrish, who was suspended two games yesterday for aggressive arguing with an umpire.
