Hot corner


Quote: "Ate breakfast. Ate lunch. Played cards. Played cribbage. Guys worked out. Guys watched TV. What else could there have been to do in the confines of the clubhouse? We pretty much exasperated all of it." -- Red Sox first baseman Mike Stanley. The entire weekend series between Red Sox and Indians was postponed because of rain.

It's a fact: American League Central-leading White Sox are 12-6, matching their best start in 18 years. They haven't started 13-6 since 1977.

Who's hot: The Royals' Jermaine Dye, who is tied for the AL lead with eight homers, has four home runs in five games.

Who's not: The Tigers have lost seven consecutive games.

On deck: The Rangers, who have lost six of their past seven games and are 1-5 on their current homestand, face Ramon Martinez (3-0) and the visiting Red Sox.
