Boston 4, Tampa Bay 0. That's three straight shutouts, and 32 scoreless innings, for the Red Sox pitching staff. Granted, they've done it all against the Yankees and Devil Rays, but it's still damn impressive. Byung-Hyun Kim, coming off the DL for his first 2004 appearance, pitched the first five innings.

Cubs overcome Finley's three homers. Alex Gonzalez homered in the 9th to win it. (Yahoo!)

After appeal, Gonzalez helps Marlins win. (Different Alex Gonzalez.) (Yahoo!)

John J Perricone: "Starting in 1996, home runs, batting average, slugging, runs scored; virtually all of offensive categories are at historic highs. Barry Bonds' supposed late-career power surge coincides exactly with the league." (Only Baseball Matters)

Bryan Smith on Hee Seop Choi and other things. (Wait 'Til Next Year)

Sortable Stats: Batting. Mark Bellhorn continues to lead the AL in walks (21). (Yahoo!)

Sortable Stats: Batting. Barry Bonds: .469/.687/1.122. Unbelievable. (Yahoo!)

Favorite Non-Sox Players. "I've always liked [Darin] Erstad, every since the beginning of the 2000 season where he had 240 hits and hit .355. Although Erstad had that terrific season, he has been terribley inconsistent ever since. Its too bad too because he can show you signs of a Hall of Famer then he can show you signs of a 30th round pick." (Red Sox Haven)
