Hot corner

August 28, 1999

Quote: "They say I'm just a big talker. But I did what I said last year, and I still plan to do what I said this year." -- Astros' Jose Lima, who predicted in spring training he'd win 20, after winning No. 17

It's a fact: The Reds will play 21 of their 35 remaining games on the road, where they have the majors' best record (40-20).

Who's hot: The Expos have hit a team-record 44 homers in August, five more than their previous mark for home runs in a month, set in April 1996.

Who's not: The Marlins' Dennis Springer is winless in his past seven starts.

On deck: Just-recalled Kyle Farnsworth will start tomorrow for the Cubs.
