Quote: "People can call us a surprise, but this is a totally different team than last year." -- Outfielder Luis Gonzalez of the Diamondbacks, who have matched last year's win total of 65

It's a fact: The Astros' Jeff Bagwell walked twice and leads the NL with 102.

Who's hot: The Cardinals' Thomas Howard was 3-for-3 last night and is 6-for-6 in the series against the Phillies.

Who's not: The Cubs have lost four straight and 15 of 19.

On deck: Mets outfielder Bobby Bonilla, on the disabled list since July 4 because of an injured left knee, will begin a minor-league rehab assignment on Aug. 26.
