AL hot corner


Quote: "If he's elected, I'll have shaken hands with the last four presidents. No matter what your politics are, that's pretty cool." -- Angels pitcher Tim Belcher on meeting Al Gore before a game in Detroit

It's a fact: The Tigers' Juan Gonzalez has missed a career-high 36 games this season. With 22 games left, Gonzalez has 62 RBIs. In each of the past four seasons, he has had at least 128 RBIs.

Who's hot: David Justice has 48 RBIs in 57 games since the Yankees acquired him from the Indians June 29.

Who's not: The Rangers have not won a series since late July.

On deck: Two of the league's winningest pitchers, the Yankees' Andy Pettitte (17-7) and the Red Sox's Pedro Martinez (16-4), square off today.
