I sit here writing this afternoon preview, looking at how ridiculous my preseason predictions were. The Rays' AL East magic number is 1, and the Tigers, the Tigers that I so lustfully praised before seeing them play, sit a full game BEHIND THE ROYALS in last place. Wowza. Tampa sends Scott Kazmir out to face that Gallaraga dude, and by the end of your work day you could be living in a world where the Tampa Bay Rays hold a division title. Strange days, man.
2:15, Snakes at Cardinals:
I often make fun of players' facial hair. It's always atrocious, but still... Doug Davis... that thing on your chin
is a travesty. It's an affront to all that is good in the world. It looks like the skid mark in grandpa's drawers. Fix it and then go to the mound to take on Joel Pineiro (not doing his chin any favors
, either) and the Cardinals. A St. Louis win would clinch playoffs for the Dodgers.
Now Till Eternity, Me:
Doing my Uncle Jesse thing.
