Quote: "I feel a lot better about our club. We seem to be playing with a lot more certainty." - New York Yankees manager Joe Torre about his team's recent play. New York leads the AL East by 3 1/2 games over Boston.

It's a fact: The Seattle Mariners lead the majors in drawing 521 walks.

Who's hot: Seattle also has the best home record (36-17) in baseball after beating Toronto yesterday at Safeco Field.

Who's not: Rolando Arrojo lost his fifth straight decision yesterday against Oakland as he gave up five runs in 6 1/3 innings in his Red Sox debut.
