A Baby Running Barefoot: Today's Afternoon Games

| | Comments (2)
  • Twins at Blue Jays, 12:37PM: If you're a Brett Cecil fan, put your cheering hat on. Today marks Cecil's last start of the season since Toronto has deemed it wise to limit his innings and rest the young fella. But J.P., the Blue Jays tenuous six game lead over last place Baltimore hangs in the balance. Don't you want to put your best foot forward?

  • Tigers at Royals, 2:10PM: Zack Greinke looks to add to his Cy Young resu...wait, Lenny who? Kansas City called up Lenny DiNardo, whose name sounds like he's a driver for the Gotham Bus Company, to give Greinke an extra day of rest. Deeeetroit has lost two in a row to the Royals but still leads the division by 5.5 games, because Minnesota and Chicago gave up a while ago.

  • Reds at Rockies, 3:10PM: We can bemoan the absence of drama in the NL Wild Card race or we can celebrate the re-energized intrigue in the NL West division race. Glass half empty, or glass half full? Either way, the Rockies are hot hot hot and just 2.5 games behind the division-leading Dodgers. After three close wins over Dusty's Reds, the Rockies send Jose Contreras to the mound for the sweep. This game will be aired on the MLB Network because they want you to feel the excitement.

I'm still totally expecting to lose the division to the Twins. As long as the Tigers can't hit for shit and play even worse on the road, my boys could still be royally (HAR!) boned. Especially considering pretty much the last two weeks of the season are road games against the division.
