Quote: "I think this team can be as good or better than the '95 team. This team can beat you in more ways."
-- Indians hitting coach Charlie Manuel. It's a fact: Pedro Martinez (21-4) is the only Red Sox pitcher in double digits for wins. No team in major-league history has made the postseason with just one pitcher with 10 or more wins.
Who's hot: The Athletics' Jason Giambi is batting .390 (80-for-205) with 16 homers and 60 RBIs in 56 games since the All-Star break.
Who's not: The Tigers, beaten by the White Sox last night, are 4-37 in games when they don't homer.
On deck: Devil Rays first baseman Fred McGriff (left quadriceps injury) may return to the starting lineup today.
