d--mathematically eliminated from winning the division title
e--mathematically eliminated from the postseason
x--clinched division title
y--clinched wild card

Since every postseason spot in the AL has been clinched, it is no longer necessary to indicate who has been mathematically eliminated.

3) Wild card standings--

NL WON LOST PCT GB
Cardinals 90 66 .577 -
Giants 86 70 .551 4
Cubs 85 71 .545 5

4) The Indians clinched the AL Central title.

5) The Whitesox passed the Twins into sole possession of 2nd place in the AL Central.

6) The Expos clinched last place in the NL East.

7) The Pirates clinched last place in the NL Central.

8) The Rockies clinched last place in the NL West.

9) Mariners watch--they have to go 6-0 in their remaining 7 games to break the 1906 Cubs's record of 116 wins

10) Magic numbers--

NL East--Braves, 5
NL Central--Astros, 6
NL West--Diamondbacks, 5
NL wild card--Cardinals, 3

11) Race for postseason seeds--

AL--The Mariners have clinched the top seed. The Yankees have a 3 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.

12) Today's schedule--

AL
Whitesox (Kip Wells 10-9) at Yankees (Sterling Hitchcock 3-4), 7:05 PM
BlueJays (Esteban Loaiza 10-11) at Orioles (Rick Bauer 0-3), 7:05 PM
Redsox (David Cone 8-6) at Devil Rays (Tanyon Sturtze 9-12), 7:15 PM

NL
Pirates (Jimmy Anderson 8-17) at Mets (Glendon Rusch 8-10), 7:10 PM

1) Rockies 1B Todd Helton became the first player to have 100+ extra base hits in back to back years. Lou Gehrig and Chuck Klein were the only others to do it twice in their careers.

2) Rangers OF Chad Curtis had to leave yesterday's game, after aggravating his injured right hamstring, and may miss the rest of the season.

Curtis is hitting .357 SLG, .338 OBA, .695 OPS, -3 RCAA, .419 OWP, 4.97 RC/G, 16 RC in 38 games. This is the 8th time in his 10 year career that he's had a negative RCAA. Curtis came into the year with a .747 career OPS, compared to his league average of .767 and OF average of .779, -46 RCAA and -71 RCAP.

Curtis will be a free agent at the end of the season and has said he is considering going to Japan.

3) Devil Rays OF-DH Greg Vaughn's sore leg may limit him to pinch hitting over the final week of the season.

4) The BlueJays will call up P Kevin Beirne today.

5) The Brewers activated 2B Ron Belliard from the DL.

Belliard's hitting .458 SLG, .338 OBA, .797 OPS, 0 RCAA, .504 OWP, 5.96 RC/G, 60 RC in 97 games. Belliard came into the year with a .770 career OPS, compared to his league average of .796 and 2B average of .773, -8 RCAA and -2 RCAP.

6) According to some reports in the New York papers and Washington Post, the Yankees may have to play makeup games against the Redsox and Orioles, after the season ends, if that will impact on the seeds for the AL playoffs. According to reports from late in August, there was an attempt to change the rules to require postseason teams to play an equal amount of games, if it mattered for the postseason seeds, but that attempt failed and PCT will continue to be used, if necessary.

It's hard to believe with 3 seasons of 60+ homeruns that Sammy Sosa hasn't had 100 extra base hits in a season.
It's also hard to believe that Mac didn't have at least 30 other extra base hits in 1998.

Sosa's now 2 away from 100 this year.

In 1998, McGwire had 21 2B and 0 3B. He also had 61 singles.
