Two rare baseball phenomena are on course to happen so far this season, but, like asteroids that come hurtling into Earth's part of the galaxy, they are unlikely to hit the mark. These two things intersect at 1060 West Addison in Chicago, where the Atlanta Braves are playing the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Chipper Jones, the Braves' superb third baseman, is hitting over .400 for the first third of the season, chasing an elusive mark last achieved by Ted Williams in 1941. And the Cubs, the most championship-famished franchise in the history of major American sports, have the best record in the major leagues, with hopes of capturing their first pennant since 1945 and even - maybe, perhaps - their first world championship since nineteen-aught-eight.

When Roger Clemens went for his 350th career victory Wednesday night at Camden Yards, the ballpark was about two-thirds full and the excitement level for what could have been a rare piece of baseball history was not all that much greater than it would have been for a typical Orioles-Yankees game. Want proof? Going into the Yankees series, the advance gate for last night's series finale was significantly larger than that for Clemens' potentially historic start. How do you figure that? No doubt, it would have been different at Yankee Stadium or Fenway Park - the two ballparks where Clemens spent most of his great career - but the simple fact of the matter is that baseball fans are milestoned out. The great hunt for round numbers has been going on since the game's Golden Age, and there was a time when fans from all over the major leagues would stop and express their awe at a 300th victory or a 500th home run. That, of course, was before it happened every day. I can remember what a big deal it was when Willie Mays hit his 500th and 600th career home runs, even though I didn't live in San Francisco.

Travis Fryman doesn't begrudge Cal Ripken's huge lead in the American League All-Star balloting one bit."Not in the least," he said last night.The Detroit Tigers' 24-year-old shortstop believes that performance over the long haul is the biggest measuring stick when it comes to All-Star balloting.That's why Fryman can roll into Camden Yards for a big three-game series with the Orioles and shrug off Ripken's insurmountable lead of 385,000 votes for a starting spot in next month's All-Star Game here.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chicago Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg is being admired for retiring this week and forfeiting a potential $16 million, but California Angels batting coach Rod Carew has difficulty respecting him."He's a guy who had eight good years in the big leagues, he has one bad year, and he walks out on his teammates," Carew said. "If I was on the team, I would have felt like he let me down as one of his teammates."People say he doesn't care about money. How about the guys around him?

Quote: "I felt comfortable, but it was a little weird. It's a long run from right field to the dugout. I was just lucky I didn't get any balls hit to me." - White Sox shortstop Jose Valentin, who played the outfield for the first time in his major-league career It's a fact: Cristian Guzman leads the majors with 12 triples, four off the Twins record by Hall of Famer Rod Carew in 1977. Who's hot: Bernie Williams has hit safely in the first 12 games of the Yankees' 13-game road trip and is 23-for-51 (.451)
