d--mathematically eliminated from winning the division title
e--mathematically eliminated from the postseason

3) Wild card standings--

AL WON LOST PCT GB
A's 79 57 .581 -
Redsox 71 63 .530 7
Twins 71 65 .522 8
Angels 70 66 .515 9
Whitesox 68 66 .507 10

NL WON LOST PCT GB
Cubs 76 59 .563 -

Dodgers 74 62 .544 2 1/2
Cardinals 73 62 .541 3
Braves/Phillies 72 63 .533 4
Padres 68 68 .500 8 1/2

4) The Angels were mathematically eliminated from winning the AL West.

5) The Reds will be mathematically eliminated from winning the NL Central if they lose to the Pirates or the Astros beat the Brewers or the Cubs beat the Braves.

Here's how what the 2nd place Cubs do is relevant--

With a 54-81 record, the Reds could theoretically finish 81-81. The Astros and Cubs have 7 games remaining against each other. If the Cubs win exactly 5 of those 7 games, and both the Astros and Cubs were to lose all of their other games, with the Reds going on a 27 game winning streak, the Astros, Cubs and Reds would finish tied with a 81-81 record.

A Cubs win would take away that tiny possibility of a 3 way tie.

6) Magic numbers--

AL East--Yankees, 20
AL Central--Indians, 21
AL West--Mariners, 9
AL wild card--A's, 21

NL East--Braves and Phillies, 28
NL Central--Astros, 25
NL West--Diamondbacks, 24
NL wild card--Cubs, 26

7) Race for postseason seeds--

AL--The Mariners have a 17 game lead over the Yankees for the top seed. The Yankees have a 2 1/2 game lead over the Indians for the 2nd seed.

NL--The Astros have a 1 1/2 game lead over the Diamondbacks for the top seed. The Diamondbacks have a 5 1/2 game lead over the Braves for the 2nd seed.

8) Today's schedule--

1) Rafael Palmeiro reached 100 RBI for the 8th time and 7th consecutive year. Palmeiro became just the 4th player with at least 7 consecutive 35+ HR, 100+ RBI seasons.

Palmeiro continues to add to a resume that will earn him a spot in Baseball Immortals when his career ends. Palmeiro's hitting .540 SLG, .379 OBA, .919 OPS, 31 RCAA, .641 OWP, 8.16 RC/G, 113 RC in 134 game this season. He's passed 100 RC for the 8th time in his career, is having his 9th year with a .900+ OPS and his 10th year with a .500+ SLG.

With 487 career RCAA, Palmeiro's closing in on the 500 club. Every player who's reached that mark is either in Baseball Immortals or will be when their careers end.

2) Pirates assistant GM John Sirigano, who was a top aide to former GM Cam Bonifay, left his position. The team won't say whether he was fired or he resigned.

3) BlueJays P Kelvim Escobar will have tests on Tuesday to see if he has an aneurysm in his pitching arm. Escobar had to leave Friday's game, due to tightness in his forearm, which caused numbness in his fingers and thumb. It's the 3rd time he's had mysterious symptoms this season.

The team's doctor says the chances of Escobar having an aneurysm is remote, but "At this point we really don't know. We just know that some games he's losing some strength in his hand, particularly his thumb. We're going to try and find out the reason why.

"He's had nerve conduction studies that have been normal to date."

4) The Mariners activated OF Jay Buhner and 3B Ed Sprague from the DL.

5) The Indians called up Ps Ryan Drese, Tim Drew and Scott Radinsky, INF John McDonald, OFs Dave Roberts and Karim Garcia and C Tim Laker. To make room on the 40 man roster, Jaret Wright was called up and immediately placed on the 60 day DL (so he stays on the 40 man roster, but doesn't count as one of the 40), designated INF Dave Hollins for assignment and released minor league P Jamie Brown.

6) Devil Rays LF Greg Vaughn had to leave yesterday's game, with a mild left hamstring strain, and is expected to be miss 3-4 days.

7) The Dodgers called up P Dennis Springer, INF Chris Donnels and OF McKay Christensen and activated P Jesse Orosco from the DL.

8) The Cardinals activated P Mike James from the DL.

9) The Diamondbacks activated 1B Erubiel Durazo from the DL and called up Ps Erik Sabel and Eric Knott, C Chad Moeller and OFs Ryan Christenson and Midre Cummings.

10) The Devil Rays called up P Juan Guzman, who was in AAA on an injury rehab assignment, and immediately placed him back on the 15 day DL. They also called up P Dewon Brazelton and activated P Jeff Wallace from the DL.

GM Chuck LaMar's already said Guzman, who's in the final year of a 2 year, $12.5 million contract, will not return next year. Guzman pitched just 1 game last year and has spent the entire 2001 season on the DL.

Brazelton was the 3rd pick in the first round of this year's draft. The Devil Rays say he's just there to get absorb the major league atmosphere and won't be used.

1) Barry Bonds had a 9 RCAA week, giving him 129 for the season. That's allowed him to break Rogers Hornsby's NL single season record of 123, set in 1924, moved him onto the top 10 all time single season list and allowed him to pass Hank Aaron into 9th place on the all time career list.

2) The Tigers recalled C Brandon Inge.

The Tigers say Inge is still their catcher of the future and will get most of the playing time for the rest of the year. He came into the season as the team's #1 prospect, according to Baseball America. That ranking was based on his defensive reputation, as he had a minor league hitting record that indicated he would struggle against major league pitching. So far, that's been accurate, as he's been hitting .278 SLG, .259 OBA, .537 OPS, -13 RCAA, .158 OWP, 2.19 RC/G, 9 RC in 59 games.

3) The BlueJays called up P Brian Bowles and INF Cesar Izturis.

4) The Cubs activated LF Rondell White and P Courtney Duncan from the DL.

White's been productive, when he's been healthy, hitting .523 SLG, .363 OBA, .886 OPS, 12 RCAA, .614 OWP, 7.71 RC/G, 52 RC, but injuries have limited him to just 74 games. He's expected to just be a pinch hitter for most of his playing time the rest of the season.

5) The Redsox activated 1B Brian Daubach from the DL.

Daubach's .263 AVG has obscured the fact that's really having a good season, hitting .508 SLG, .352 OBA, .860 OPS, 11 RCAA, .586 OWP, 6.97 RC/G, 63 RC in 96 games.

6) A MRI on Rangers C Ivan Rodriguez's left knee showed some fluid around the knee and he has missed the past couple of games.

Rodriguez currently trails Jorge Posada, who is the reigning AL RCAA leader among catchers, 19-18 in RCAA this season. In his 11 year career, the only times Rodriguez has led the AL in RCAA for a catcher was in 1998 and 1999.

7) Mets LF Benny Agbayani broke a bone in his right hand, while trying to check his swing yesterday, and is out indefinitely.

8) The Twins called up C Matt LeCroy and P Mike Duvall and moved P Johan Santana from the 15 to the 60 day DL.

9) The Expos activated P Guillermo Mota and OF Terry Jones from the DL.

10) Pirates 1B Kevin Young will serve his 2 game suspension, for a mid August brawl, today and the first game of tomorrow's doubleheader.

1) The Marlins called up Ps Josh Beckett and Blaine Neal and OF Jeff Abbott.

Beckett, 21, was ranked as the Marlins's #1 prospect by Baseball America and was given an A grade by the Minor League Scouting Notebook, which ranked him as the 5th best prospect in baseball.

Beckett was the 2nd pick in the 1999 draft and had a 2.12 ERA in his A ball in 2000, his first season in the minors, but was limited to just 12 starts due to tendinitis in his shoulder. In 2001, he had a 1.54 ERA, with 203 SO and 34 BB in 140 IP and a 14-1 record in A and AA.

Beckett will make his major league debut by starting against the Cubs on Tuesday.

Neal, 23, was ranked as the Marlins's #7 prospect by Baseball America and was given a C+ grade by the Minor League Scouting Notebook. He came into the year with a 2.96 career ERA in 4 minor league seasons, all below AA. In AA in 2001, he had a 2.36 ERA and could be eventually used as a closer in the majors.

2) The Pirates activated 2B Warren Morris from the DL.

3) The Reds activated 3B Aaron Boone from the DL.

4) The Reds called up 1B Calvin Pickering.

5) Mets RF Matt Lawton reached 100 career SB.

6) The Brewers activated 3B Tyler Houston and P Jeff D'Amico from the DL and moved P Lance Painter from the 15 to the 60 day DL.

7) Rockies MGR Buddy Bell says the team will call up OF Jacob Cruz and P Todd Belitz and will activate P Scott Elarton from the DL prior to Tuesday's game.

8) The Giants called up P Kurt Ainsworth, C Yorbit Torrealba, 1B Damon Minor, INF Cody Ransom and OF Dante Powell.

Ainsworth, 22, was ranked as the Giants's #2 prospect by Baseball America and was given a B+ grade by the Minor League Scouting Notebook. He came into the season with a 2.93 career ERA in 2 minor league seasons and had a 5.07 ERA in the hitting friendly atmosphere in the PCL (AAA).

9) The Devil Rays called up OF Jose Guillen.

10) The Braves activated C Eddie Perez and P Odalis Perez from the DL and called up INF Jesse Garcia and P Damian Moss.

Welcome, Lee. Glad to see you here.

Nick and everyone else, Lee was given permission by me to post his daily "Around the Majors" column which feature news, commentary, rumors, and stats and each Sunday, he creates a complete statistical package.

So today being Sunday, it was lengthier than usual. Looking forward to your feature topics.

Nick and everyone else, Lee was given permission by me to post his daily "Around the Majors" column which feature news, commentary, rumors, and stats and each Sunday, he creates a complete statistical package.

So today being Sunday, it was lengthier than usual. Looking forward to your feature topics.
Actually, since today was my first day on this message board, I decided to shorten the material a little bit by not including the statistical package.

The statistical package was another 12 messages--

the OPS of everyone with at least 3.1 PA/games
everyone's RCAA
everyone's RCAP
everyone's RSAA
top 10 hitting leaders
top 10 pitching leaders

That's 6 different kinds of charts, but the actual package is double that, since there are the charts for both leagues.

Also, I forgot to mention what RCAA, RCAP and RSAA means--

RCAA is my own creation. It's a comparision of the player's runs created figure (a Bill James stat) with what an average player would have created. It's a park adjusted stat. It can be negative, which means the player's below average.

RCAP is the same as RCAA, except it's a comparision to the average player at his position.

RSAA is a comparision of how many runs the pitcher saved the team, compared to an average pitcher. It's park adjusted and is the same thing as Total Baseball's Adjusted Pitcher's Runs stat, except we both have different methods of doing the park adjustments. Also, RSAA can be negative, which indicates the pitcher cost his team runs.

It takes an average of about 3 hours a day to create the reports.

The standings were cut and pasted and the statistical charts are cut and pasted from my encyclopedia. The rest is hand written.
