NL hot corner

July 07, 2000

Quote: "Guys like me who can drive in runs are going for $10-$12 million. I'm fairly cheap for what I can bring to the table. To me, it doesn't make sense to trade a guy like me that plays cheap for you." - Moises Alou of the last-place Astros, who may look to deal the outfielder and his $5.25 million salary.

It's a fact: Expos manager Felipe Alou was ejected with two outs in the ninth inning after arguing a ball-three call to the final batter.

Who's hot: Montreal's Jose Vidro is the league leader in hits (115) and multi-hit games (36). He improved to .500 (13-for-26) against the Braves yesterday.

Who's not: The Reds' Ken Griffey Jr. was in 2-for-23 going into last night's game and his average was down to .236.

On deck: Expos closer Ugueth Urbina will fly Sunday to Jupiter of the Class A Florida State League to begin his rehabilitation after having successful surgery on his elbow yesterday.
