- 12:05, Royals at Indians:
Anyone got odds on Cee Lee shutting out the Royals today? He's done it once this year and the free swinging Royals are the perfect victims for his pinpoint control. Cleveland is 17-14 since the All-Star break an... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
2:20, Reds at Cubs:
Carlos Zambrano will try and exorcise his recent hiccups against the abominable Josh Fogg and the Reds. Cincinnati has scored 2 runs in the first two games but thanks to Bronson Arroyo has managed to take a game. You don't know how much it pains me to give that goober credit. There is rubber in the ivy.
3:10, Rockies at Dodgers:
Dammit, Dodgers. They're facing a home sweep against the lowly Rockies. Every game that the Rockies win just delays Brian Fuentes going to a real team. Cut it out. Derek Lowe goes against Jorge De La Rosa, and if Lowe doesn't get the job done, I'm writing a post with all the freaky rumors I heard about him while he was in Boston. WIN THE DIVISION, YOU DICKS.
3:45, Marlins at Giants:
Florida has merely split the first two games of this series and things are going to get mighty tough if they can't put a string of wins together. They're actually further from the Wild Card (7.5) than they are from the division lead (5). Josh Johnson gets the start against Matt Palmer, unquestionably the biggest star from the 31st round of the 2002 amateur draft.
