The Paper Trail of June 14

by John Perrotto

Dave van Dyck of the Chicago Tribune writes that Ted Lilly took a no-hitter into the ninth inning and made up for his team's poor offense with great pitching as the Cubs beat the White Sox. The Tribune's Mark Gonzales writes that Mark Buehrle may be on edge until gaining  10-5 status on July 6.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post writes that Stephen Strasburg dominated again, striking out eight in 5 1/3 innings as the Nationals beat the Indians. Bud Shaw of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Strasburg is much more than the sum of his pitches. Ray Ratto of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that Strasburg looks like an All-Star to marketers.

Michael S. Schmidt and Katie Thomas of the New York Times write that Roger Clemens' foundation is coming under scrutiny.

Brian Costello of theNew York Post writes that Jorge Posada's grand slam helped put the Yankees into first place in the American League East. Costello also writes that Alex Rodriguez looks fit  to face the Phillies on Tuesday night.

Bill Madden of the New York Daily News writes that the Astros revealed themselves as major-league embarrassments against the Yankees.

Mike Puma of the New York Post writes that Roy Oswalt would OK a trade to the Mets but it is unlikely they would take on the approximately $30 million left on his contract.

Tom Gage of the Detroit News writes that Austin Jackson was forced out of Sunday's game with back spasms. Michael Rosenberg of the Detroit Free Press writes that Miguel Cabrera's power is in a league of it own.

Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that Edinson Volquez's next rehab start is set for Thursday.

Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star writes that Zack Greinke made an adjustment after watching video.

Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram writes that Ian Kinsler gave hisankle a rest.

Ron Musselman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes that Pedro Alvarez is confident he is ready to play in the major leagues and Pirates general manager Neal Huntington isn't ruling out a promotion for the third base prospect this week.

Tracy Seipel of the Oakland Tribune writes that the 49ers' win at the polls could be a boost for the Athletics' hopes of moving.

Jim Gintonio of the Arizona Republic writes that the Diamondbacks could make a change at closer.

Paul Hagen of the Philadelphia Daily News writes that the Phillies can't expect a trade-deadline boost this year.

Tom Powers of the St. Paul Pioneer Press writes that the sloppy Twins have suddenly forgotten who they are and what they do.
