Hot corner


Quote: "It's my 15th season. I feel fortunate my body still responds to what I ask it to do." -- Blue Jays' Roger Clemens.

It's a fact: Mo Vaughn's homer yesterday was the 198th of his career, making him the all-time leader in home runs for a player born in Connecticut, surpassing former Tigers second baseman Dick McAuliffe.

Who's hot: Juan Gonzalez had a four-RBI game and a five-RBI game back-to- back last week, giving him 20 games with four RBIs or more since 1996.

Who's not: Tigers first baseman Tony Clark finished April batting .232, with just two homers and 12 RBIs.

On deck: Voters go to the polls Tuesday in North Carolina to decide on a ballpark money initiative that could determine the future of the Minnesota Twins. If voters approve a 1 percent prepared-foods tax and a 50-cent ticket surcharge, plans can go forward for a new $210 million ballpark.
