Clemens. Will Roger return at 43? Or will his last victory go down as that 17-0 masterpiece against South Africa?
Damon. Johnny and the New York Yankees visit Fenway Park on May 1. Don't expect to see a lot of those W.W.J.D.D. T-shirts.
Faith Night. It's the minor league marketing rage this season, complete with bobblehead dolls of biblical figures. For Florida Marlins fans, every night is Faith Night.
Glavine. New York Mets pitcher Tom Terrific is 25 wins shy of 300 for his career. Can't see how hockey would've worked out this well.
Johjima. The Mariners' new catcher, Kenji, won seven Gold Gloves in Japan. Can he handle the transition to America as well as he has handled pitchers?
Leyland. A quarter-century ago, Jim left the Detroit Tigers' organization because his managerial prospects were blocked by Sparky Anderson. He's back now; Kirk Gibson, Lou Whitaker and Alan Trammell aren't.
McCourt. Looking for a way to lure women to the park, Los Angeles Dodgers president Jamie, a Pikesville native, is backing a lipstick giveaway this summer. Didn't Brooklyn once try Leo the Lipstick Night?
National League. Eight different pennant winners the past eight seasons. Who's next? N for Nationals? Nope.
Oswalt. The Astros' Roy is trying to become the first pitcher since Glavine (1991-1993) to win 20 or more games in three straight seasons.
Prince. Brewers first baseman Fielder, Cecil's son, isn't the only son of a Toronto Blue Jay making waves. The San Diego Padres' new second baseman is Josh Barfield, Jesse's kid. Shouldn't Bobby Cox be managing these guys?
Quintero. First name: Mayque. The Nationals' prospect is the only player in professional baseball with Q in his first and last name.
Rollins. Joltin' Jimmy of the Philadelphia Phillies enters the season 20 games away from tying Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak. Would it count over two seasons? Call him Mr. Coffee ... Break.
Stitches. Pity the seamstress who has to provide the lettering for Royals infielders Tony Graffanino, Mark Grudzielanek and Doug Mientkiewicz.
Tejada. Miguel's consecutive-games-played streak is at 918, the longest among active players and the seventh longest of all time. If he slumps as he did late last season and this spring, should he sit? Sound familiar, Orioles fans?
Utley. Or underrated. Chase's 28 home runs last season tied for the most in history by a Phillies second baseman. The position's sure a strength in the Mid-Atlantic.
Valenzuela. Twenty-five years ago next Sunday, rookie Fernando was pressed into service on Opening Day after the scheduled Dodgers starter pulled a calf muscle. The left-hander two-hit the Astros, touching off Fernando-mania.
X-rays. Nationals workhorse Livan Hernandez has led the NL in innings pitched for three straight years. Last September, he underwent knee surgery. Who knows how many more body parts could fall victim?
Zimmerman. Nationals rookie third baseman Ryan has been likened to Brooks Robinson. That might be stretching it, but he sure looks like an upgrade from Vinny Castilla.
