5) The Whitesox will be mathematically eliminated from winning the division title, even if the Indians don't clinch, if they lose to the Royals.

6) The Astros will clinch a tie for a postseason spot if they beat the Cubs and the Giants lose to the Padres.

7) The Mets will be mathematically eliminated from winning the division title and from the postseason if they lose to the Braves and the Phillies beat the Marlins.

7) The Cubs will be mathematically eliminated from winning the division title if they lose to the Astros.

8) The Dodgers will be mathematically eliminated from winning the division title and from the postseason if they lose to the Diamondbacks.

9) The Expos will clinch last place in the NL East if they lose to the Reds or the Marlins beat the Phillies.

10) The Rockies will clinch last place in the NL West if they lose to the Brewers or the Padres beat the Giants.

11) Mariners watch--they have to go 7-0 in their remaining 7 games to break the 1906 Cubs's record of 116 wins

12) Magic numbers--

AL Central--Indians, 1

NL East--Braves, 6
NL Central--Astros, 6
NL West--Diamondbacks, 6
NL wild card--Cardinals, 5

13) Race for postseason seeds--

AL--The Mariners have clinched the top seed. The Yankees have a 3 1/2 game lead over the Indians for the 2nd seed.

NL--The Astros have a 3 game lead over the Diamondbacks for the top seed. The Diamondbacks have a 4 game lead over the Braves for the 2nd seed.

The Astros and Diamondbacks have smaller leads over the Cardinals and Giants, respectively, and both of those teams are thus closer to the top and 2nd seeds than the other division winners. But, rather than have the preceding lines be redundant with the division standings, they only address the races among 1st place teams.

1) A's SS Miguel Tejada hit for the cycle. Previously, on June 30, he hit 3 HR in a game. Tejada became the 14th player to accomplish both feats in the same season.

Tejada's hitting .472 SLG, .326 OBA, .798 OPS, 5 RCAA, .524 OWP, 5.81 RC/G, 96 RC in 155 games. He came into the season with a .754 career OPS, compared to his league average of .786 and SS average of .750.

2) Yankees P Orlando Hernandez had to leave yesterday's game, in the 2nd, due to tightness in his elbow. Hernandez says he's "tired" and he'll be reevaluated today.

Hernandez has a 5.06 ERA and -3 RSAA in 16 starts this season. He came into the season with a 4.00 ERA, compared to his league average of 4.84, and 41 RSAA.

3) Mariners RF Ichiro Suzuki broke the major league rookie record with 234 hits, breaking the mark of 233, by Joe Jackson, in 1911. Suzuki also tied the AL record with 187 singles in a season, tying the mark set by Wade Boggs, in 1985.

Meanwhile, Suzuki's rankings, in yesterday's ATM reports, referred to just his rankings on the Mariners, not in the league.

4) Brewers C Henry Blanco has a broken hamate bone in his left wrist and will miss the rest of the season.

Blanco's had a terrible season, hitting .344 SLG, .290 OBA, .634 OPS, -22 RCAA, .286 OWP, 3.59 RC/G, 34 RC in 104 games. This is his 3rd consecutive year with a double digit negative RCAA, his 2nd with less than -20, and his -12 RCAP make this the 2nd time in his 3 year career that he's had a double digit negative figure in that stat (with -9 in the other year). Blanco came into the year with a .707 career OPS, compared to his league average of .796 and C average of .757.

5) Redsox P David Cone was scratched from his start yesterday, due to shoulder stiffness, and is status for the final week is uncertain. Meanwhile, Manny Ramirez missed yesterday's game, after suffering a bruised right hand when he was hit by a pitch on Friday, and is day to day.

Cone has a 4.25 ERA and 10 RSAA in 23 starts this season. He came into the year with a 3.40 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.21, and 230 RSAA. The team would reportedly like to have him return in 2002, but Cone says he hasn't decided whether he's interested in pitching another year or retiring.

6) Rangers 1B Rafael Palmeiro became the 1st player in team history to have back to back 100 BB seasons.

Palmeiro's having another outstanding year, hitting .568 SLG, .384 OBA, .952 OPS, 44 RCAA, .670 OWP, 8.74 RC/G, 137 RC in 153 games. This is his 7th year with 40+ RCAA and the 4th with a .950+ OPS. Palmeiro came into the year with a .888 career OPS, compared to his league average of .752 and 1B average of .822.

7) Mike Piazza recorded his 1500th career hit.

Piazza's having another outstanding year, hitting .566 SLG, .382 OBA, .948 OPS, 39 RCAA, .688 OWP, 8.69 RC/G, 111 RC in 136 games. He's 9th in the NL with 53 RCAP. This could be his 7th year with 40+ RBI and 6th with a .950+ OPS. Piazza came into the year with a .972 career OPS, compared to his league average of .769 and C average of .736.

The .236 difference between Piazza's OPS and the league average at his position is the 4th best figure in baseball history.

8) Bobby Cox reached 1700 career wins.

9) Mariners MGR Lou Piniella of the chances of SS Carlos Guillen being ready for the start of the playoffs--"I think it's probably less than 50-50. We're not sure."

Meanwhile, according to a doctor on the list, while pulmonary tuberculosis is contagious, my reports yesterday that said it was "highly contagious" was inaccurate.

10) Braves 3B Chipper Jones, who was playing LF yesterday, had to leave yesterday's game after fouling a pitch off his left toe.

Jones is having another excellent year, hitting .597 SLG, .423 OBA, 1.020 OPS, 64 RCAA, .739 OWP, 10.33 RC/G, 148 RC in 153 games. He's 5th in the league with 64 RCAP and 7th with 61 RCAA. This could be Jones's 2nd year with 1.000+ OPS and 60+ RCAA. Jones came into the year with a .931 career OPS, compared to his league average of .774 and 3B average of .787.

1) According to the Arizona Republic, even if the Diamondbacks have already clinched the division title, Randy Johnson would pitch next Sunday, to go after Nolan Ryan's single season SO record. Johnson would then pitch the 3rd game of the Division Series.

In theory, one would expect a manager to manage to try to win, rather than to help his players pad their personal stats. But, all you have to do is look at how bullpens are used to see that managers don't really act that way. Since managers constantly refuse to use pitchers in key situations in the game, since it's not a 9th inning save situation, then it should be no surprise that a manager would put a SO stat ahead of setting up a postseason rotation.

2) Fred McGriff, Rondell White and Todd Hundley hit 3 consecutive HR, on 3 pitches, in the first inning of yesterday's Cubs-Astros game.

3) Brewers 2B Mark Loretta has a strained left knee and may miss the rest of the season.

Loretta's had a bad year, hitting .352 SLG, .346 OBA, .698 OPS, -12 RCAA, .400 OWP, 4.74 RC/G, 50 RC in 102 games. This is the 6th time in his 7 year career that he's had a negative RCAA and his -6 RCAP make this the 5th time he's had a negative RCAP. Loretta came into the year with a .752 career OPS, compared to his league average of .783 and positional average of .745, -29 RCAA and -7 RCAP.

4) The Rockies re-signed INF Terry Shumpert to 1 year, $775,000 contract, with PA incentives.

Shumpert came into the year -42 RCAA and -25 RCAP and has -13 and -8 figures in 2001.

5) Padres 3B prospect Xavier Nady had reconstructive elbow surgery on Friday. According to GM Kevin Towers, he'll probably spend at least the first half of next season DHing in the minors.

6) Padres P Tom Davey had shoulder surgery on Friday. Earlier in the week, Davey said he hopes to be able to return around next year's All Star break, but according to Towers, Davey should be ready by the start of the season.

Davey had a 4.50 ERA and 0 RSAA in 39 games this year. He came into the year with a 4.06 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.84, in 56 career games.

7) Giants P Felix Rodriguez has asked for a trade. Prior to the season, he signed a long term contract, through 2005, but now he's decided he wants to go somewhere where he can be a closer. According to GM Brian Sabean, he won't deal Rodriguez.

Rodriguez has a 1.68 ERA and 22 RSAA in 75 games this season. This is his 2nd consecutive year with a double digit RSAA and he came into the season with a 3.88 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.45, and 9 RSAA.

8) Rangers 3B Mike Lamb had been expected to miss the rest of the season, after suffering a fracture on the tip of his right ring finger, but he returned to the lineup yesterday.

After a .702 OPS/-22 RCAA season as a rookie in 2000, Lamb's hitting .414 SLG, .346 OBA, .759 OPS, -1 RCAA, .486 OWP, 5.76 RC/G, 42 RC in 73 games in 2001.

9) Orioles OF Brady Anderson left yesterday's game, due to a slightly pulled right groin muscle, and is day to day.

10) Redsox P Rod Beck had a MRI on his sore elbow and could miss the rest of the season.

Beck has a 3.90 ERA and 10 RSAA in 68 games this year. He came into the season with a 3.20 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.12, and 58 RSAA.

1) According to the Boston Globe, "One scout's early shopping list for the Red Sox: ' Johnny Damon. [ Jason] Giambi. Mike Sweeney; he's not a free agent, but he's due to get $8 million next year and the Royals may move him. Jason Schmidt. Rondell White, if the Cubs would move him. Mark McLemore. A great guy to have on a contending team. And Scott Rolen. I think the Phillies will move him if they don't sign him.' ...

"Here are a couple of names that could be in play in Boston if new owners sweep aside the current management team: Gene Michael and Buck Showalter. Michael, who was the Yankees' general manager and is now a special adviser to Steinbrenner, has told friends he'd be interested in running a club again; Showalter, who managed the Yankees and Diamondbacks and now works for ESPN, almost certainly will manage again. And it's not an implausible scenario that Michael and Showalter could work as a tandem again."

2) According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, "Former Twins pitcher Kevin Tapani has not decided whether he will pitch another season, and the Cubs might not pick up his $6.5 million option anyway."

3) MLB gets a stupidity award for including the Milwaukee Brewers stats in the NL category, for the franchise's entire history, on charts on their website.

4) Diamondbacks P Albie Lopez will become a 20 game loser, if he gets the loss today.
