Quote: "It's like this all the time. They treat us good." - Paul O'Neill, as the Yankees' buses received a police escort between Shea and Yankee stadiums, while two major highways and one of New York's busiest bridges were closed to facilitate the trip

It's a fact: After throwing out the first pitch at Wrigley Field, NBA free agent Tracy McGrady - being recruited by the Chicago Bulls - joined Elton Brand to lead the seventh-inning singing of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

Who's hot: The Giants' Ellis Burks is 6-for-8 in the past two games with three doubles.

Who's not: The Rockies' Larry Walker is 1-for-16 with four walks as a designated hitter during interleague play this season.

On deck: The Diamondbacks' Randy Johnson goes for his NL-leading 14th victory today.
