Red Sox Nation tuned in Wednesday to see Daisuke Matsuzaka dazzle Fenway Park for the first time. But by the time the game was over, another pitcher, 21-year-old Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners, had the baseball world abuzz. Talk of Hernandez as the next Dwight Gooden began two years ago, but only now are the results matching the reputation. He'll make his third start of the season Tuesday against the Minnesota Twins. In his first two games, Hernandez is 2-0 and hasn't given up a run in 17 innings.

Inside Baseball: The Best of Tom Verducci Sports Illustrated Books/318 pages Tom Verducci, a veteran journalist who has been the lead baseball writer for Sports Illustrated since 1993, doesn't really write features or profiles. Instead, he writes epics. This is hardly news to the weekly devotees of SI, who have been quietly raving about Verducci's gifts for some time now. But reading the recently released anthology of his magazine work, Inside Baseball: The Best of Tom Verducci, one can't help but be awed, once again, by the carefully chosen rhythm of Verducci's sentences, and the authority with which he tackles narrative journalism.

* The Cubs didn't figure to make much of an attempt to re-sign P Rick Sutcliffe after a couple of injury-filled seasons, but he may have changed their minds with a strong performance in his 6 starts since coming off the disabled list. He's 3-1 with a 2.21 ERA in those 6 games.* Just to put the recent 13-strikeout performance by converted Indians reliever Doug Jones into perspective, only 2 other pitchers -- Nolan Ryan and Dwight Gooden -- have struck out more than 13 in a game this year. Jones has made 3 major-league starts since he made the transition from stopper to starter, and he has won them all.* Angels reserve OF Dave Gallagher has 29 RBI this year, and 14 of them have come against the Orioles and White Sox, the 2 teams that got rid of him last year.
