Pity the Poor Ballplayer Forced to Work on a Saturday

workersunite.jpgA bunch of excellent match ups today beneath the clouds and/or retractable roofs.

Day Games the way God intended: The exceedingly excellent and exceedingly overdue for an injury setback Rich Harden leads his Cubs against the Marlins, who reach back into their seemingly endless supply of good young players and counter with Chris Volstad. The lukewarm (winners of 5 of 6!) Jays send a large lefty named David Purcy to the hill against knuckleballin' R.A. Dickey. Darryl from the Office was in my section at last night's game, the Mariners are much more of a Toby team me thinks.

Day Games the way Rupert Murdoch intended: Begin the thawing of Mike Hampton! What better place for your first start in three years than on national television! Against the big swinging dicks of the Phillies! With Cole Hamels as the opposing pitcher! I predict this ending in tears. Grizzled vets Andy Pettitte and Tim Wakefield take to the sepia-toned mound in a marquee match up surely marred by McGarver. Another Yankee win and they're just a single game back of the Red Sox.

Day Games the way alcoholics intended: The NL West has its revenge! The best pitching duel of the day features Brandon Webb and Wee Tim Lincecom going head to head. Fausto Carmona makes his first start since May, much to the chagrin of the Twins. Except Joe Mauer, I don't think there is much that gets him down. Justin Duchscherer puts his tiny ERA on the line against the mashing Rangers. God hates any ERA+ higher than 200, so I'm siding with Josh on this one.

Enjoy the games! Go outside too! Maybe fit in a Dark Knight IMAX showing. I'll sleep when I'm dead, or very hungover. Drunken comments go!

Welp, hope you all enjoyed the short reign of weekend editor Lloyd the Barber. He did such a good job, he's making CTC and me look bad.

DAMN YOU LLOYD THE ONLY PERSON ALLOWED TO MAKE ME LOOK BAD IS ME

Alan Embree makes everyone look bad.

God dammit. I quit again.

matt_T: almost as many abandoned starts as Mike Hampton.

I'm commenting from an outdoor wedding right now. Most romantic comment ever? Possibly.

honeynut,

If you are the groom I have a new hero.

DID YOU CRASH IT LIKE OWEN VAN WILSON AND VINCENT VAUGHN?

Yet another dour looking picture of Jim Leyland. Does that guy ever smile?

That mustache is wayyyy too white and clean to be Leyland. Needs more grit and tar.
