No Salt Week starts today.


St Petersburg, FL. -- David Price has accomplished a lot of things during his four seasons in the Major Leagues, but so far beating the Rangers hasn't been one of them.

Tampa Bay's overpowering left-hander has yet to pick up a victory in six regular-season starts against a Texas lineup that has become his Achilles' heel. It's the only team in the American League that he's faced but never defeated.

World Habitat Day is today.


DOVER, De. -- Thank you, Kurt Busch said, after screw-ups by Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards put Busch in position to win Sunday's AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway.

While Busch celebrated his second victory of the season and the 24th of his career in Victory Lane at the Monster Mile, runner-up Johnson and third-place Edwards sat in the nearby media center castigating themselves in the post-race news conference.

Johnson stumbled on the last two restarts of the race, allowing Busch to take and retain a lead he held for the final 42 laps. Edwards trashed his own winning chances by speeding on pit road in a timed section he and crew chief Bob Osborne had discussed specifically before the race.

In a sense, though, all three drivers were winners. Busch, Johnson and Edwards took advantage of the struggles of Tony Stewart, who led the series after wins in the first two races of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
