It's a fact Rocco Baldelli of the Rays is the second rookie host of This Week in Baseball, joining Phillies' Jimmy Rollins ('01). Milestone Paul Lo Duca's inside-the-park home run last Sunday was the first by a Dodger at home since Steve Sax in 1988. Stat of the week Aramis Ramirez of the Pirates raised his average from .218 to .309 during his career-best 22-game hitting streak.

Rangers, Braves fortified Stephen Miller Morning Call Two of the biggest trade deadline acquisitions — Hunter Pence going to the Phillies and Carlos Beltran joining the Giants — came from teams already well-positioned to reach the playoffs. The Rangers and Braves are teams that were in more precarious spots but should play into October after their recent moves. Texas added two of baseball's top setup men in Mike Adams and Koji Uehara, fortifying a bullpen that ranked 11th in the American League in ERA. Those additions should help the Rangers hold off the Angels in the AL West.

Two people in baseball familiar with the Nationals' plans told the Associated Press that Jim Riggleman will be the team's manager next season. Both people spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement has been made. The team is planning a news conference for Thursday. The former Padres and Cubs manager was promoted from bench coach to interim manager in July, replacing fired manager Manny Acta . The Nationals went 33-42 under Riggleman. •Shortstop Jimmy Rollins and outfielder Shane Victorino of the NL champion Phillies were awarded NL Gold Gloves.

Phillies will hang on Mandy Housenick The Morning Call I'm not sure if the Rangers, Reds and Padres have enough to last a 162-game schedule, but those three divisions aren't the strongest, so this trio should hold on into at least July. The bigger questions are with the three tougher divisions. Can the Rays hold off the Yankees and Red Sox without a consistent offense? Can the Twins, with Jon Rauch as their closer, hold off the Tigers? Will the Phillies' beat-up pitching staff hang on long enough until their futile offense wakes up?

PHILADELPHIA — Jimmy Rollins was in a rut. Calf and hamstring problems limited the former National League Most Valuable Player to 88 games in the regular season. He was 1-for-15 in the postseason. But the Giants got him started. Jonathan Sanchez helped him drive in his first run of the postseason by walking him with the bases loaded. Third baseman Mike Fontenot gifted him a hit by letting a popup plop onto in the infield. Then Rollins drove a down-the-middle fastball by Santiago Casilla to the top of the wall in right-center for a bases-clearing double that blew open the game and sent the Phillies on their way to a 6-1 victory on Sunday night in Game 2 of the NLCS.

LOS ANGELES - For the first two games of the National League Championship Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers will head back to Philadelphia, the site of a four-game sweep in late August that started a season-worst eight-game losing streak for the Dodgers. But memories of Philadelphia don't necessarily elicit negative emotions for the Dodgers, who were outscored 27-5 by the Phillies in that series. Because of the beatings they absorbed, the players say, they found out how much manager Joe Torre believed in them.

PHILADELPHIA — Nolan Ryan once found himself on a game show with the legendary Satchel Paige. The two killed time talking baseball, and for Ryan it was another chapter in his hardball education. Paige asked Ryan at one point if he knew the best pitch in baseball, and the self-conscious Ryan didn't want to embarrass himself. He said he wasn't sure. "Bow tie," Paige told him. "I never heard of it, Satch," Ryan said. "What kind of pitch is that?" "That's when you throw a fastball right here," Paige answered, running his hand across his Adam's apple, and smiling wickedly.

It might not be the matchup TV executives and corporate America wanted. It lost intrigue when Manny Ramirez, Joe Torre and Red Sox Nation were booted to the curb in League Championship Series play. The 2008 World Series, which begins tonight, simply will feature two very good, very balanced teams. And that should be interesting enough for most baseball fans. The Philadelphia Phillies, winners of the National League crown, boast star power with the infield trio of first baseman Ryan Howard, second baseman Chase Utley and shortstop Jimmy Rollins, as well as ace left-hander Cole Hamels.

Cliff Lee did his best to sound humble in a recent interview. He stressed the greatness of the Phillies team he joined — creating a potential super rotation the way LeBron James and Chris Bosh created an NBA super team — remains strictly hypothetical. He talked about how things look "on paper" but tried to sound humble in explaining that nothing was given any baseball team in March. Still, he said that along with Roy Halladay , Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels he would give the Phillies so much pitching that they could "expect" — that was the word he used — to win the National League East, roll through the playoffs and win the World Series.
