Hot corner

July 09, 1999

Quote: "If you had asked me about making the All-Star team two years ago, I would have just laughed. I didn't even make the all-star team when I was pitching in the independent Northern League in '97."

-- Jeff Zimmerman, Rangers rookie reliever, on being named to the American League All-Star team.

It's a fact: Jose Canseco's homer was only his second at Tropicana Field, the Devil Rays' home, since June 5.

Who's hot: The Yankees' Derek Jeter reached base nine times (seven hits, two walks) in 15 plate appearances during the three-game series against the Tigers.

Who's not: The Red Sox lost their third straight to the Devil Rays to finish the season 4-9 against them.

On deck: The White Sox, who have the third-worst attendance in the majors, have sold out all three weekend games against the Chicago Cubs.
