A week before the non-waiver trade deadline, it is looking more likely that the Orioles will not make any deals that will heavily impact the 2006 roster. Team executives continue to work the phones, hopeful of making significant additions that will buoy the team for the rest of the season and in the future. But with the club maintaining it has yet to be overwhelmed with an offer for star shortstop Miguel Tejada and that it is looking to build around - not trade - its young pitching, the Orioles are short on valuable trade chips.

There's no way this season should be a coming-out party for Bobby Abreu. By now, anyone who knows how many innings there are in a baseball game should know who the Philadelphia Phillies' Abreu is. The 31-year-old outfielder clearly is one of the 10 best players in the game. He does everything on a diamond: run, hit, hit for power and play great defense. Sadly, the biggest headline of his career came Monday when he hit a record 41 homers in the Home Run Derby contest, including 24 in one round.

It's a fact The Expos are 0-11 in Sun day games on the road - and 9-1 at home on Sundays. Milestone Bobby Abreu is the first Phillies player with three straight 40-double seasons since Ed Delahanty in 1895-1897. The number 13: consecutive losing months for the Royals, equaling a franchise record set from April 1969 to April 1971.

Brewers: The triple play was the third in club history and first since July 28, 1997. Phillies: Bobby Abreu's grand slam was the first by a Philadelphia player since Bobby Estalella hit one last Aug. 16 at Colorado. Curt Schilling's triple was the first by a Philadelphia pitcher since Danny Jackson hit one on June 18, 1994 at Montreal. Scott Rolen went 0-for-3, ending his nine-game hitting streak. The only longer season-opening hitting streak by a Phillie was Don Demeter's 11-game stretch in 1963.
