Question of the Day
ON WASHINGTONTIMES.COM » AN EXCERPT FROM CHATTER, OUR BASEBALL BLOG
Jorge Cantu homered off Shairon Martis to lead off the bottom of the fourth and tie (Friday night's) game 1-1. Just your average, run-of-the-mill long ball, right?
Not exactly. This was Cantu's 25th homer of the season, and because of that, the Marlins just made history. They are the first team in MLB history to have four infielders with at least 25 homers. They've got Cantu (25), Hanley Ramirez (29), Dan Uggla (30) and Mike Jacobs (32). Quite impressive.
For comparison's sake (because I know you're wondering) the Nationals' four starting infielders Friday night (Ryan Zimmerman, Cristian Guzman, Anderson Hernandez and Aaron Boone) have hit a combined 27 homers in 2008.

TWT FIVE » ACC NONCONFERENCE WINS
1. Maryland 35, California 27 — A week after a humiliating loss at Middle Tennessee, the Terrapins shock the No. 23 team in the nation.
2. North Carolina 44, Rutgers 12 — Either Rutgers went back to being Rutgers or Butch Davis has the Tar Heels on the road to respectability.
3. Duke 41, Navy 31 — Welcome to the ACC, Thaddeus Lewis. Duke's quarterback threw three touchdown passes Saturday in a win over the Midshipmen.
4. Florida State 69, Western Carolina 0 — Well, at least some ACC teams can take care of business against lower-level competition.
5. Wake Forest 30, Mississippi 28 — Even though it's just two points, beating an SEC opponent is worth celebrating.
HE SAID WHAT
”Winning is a mind-set. We talk about it all the time. If you believe you can win and believe you're going to win, then it's going to happen.” — Duke QB Thaddeus Lewis after beating Navy on Saturday
