Couplets on Wit: Today's Afternoon Games

| | Comments (4)

Only two games today? For shame! It's a perfectly miserable day outside on the East Coast!

  • Royals at Tigers, 1:05PM: The Twins are going to need a miracle if they're going to catch the Tigers in the AL Central race. Lucky for them, Zack Greinke poops miracles! The Kansas City ace will try to help his team win the rubber match this afternoon in a game that will be aired nationally by the MLB Network. Detroit counters with a struggling Edwin Jackson and some good feelings left over from last night.

  • Brewers at Cubs, 2:20PM: The Brewers may be playing out the season for the sake of selling some more Ryan Braun jerseys and bratwurst sandwiches, but that's not stopping rookie sensation Alcides Escobar from making his mark at short. Fella went 4 for 5 with three RBI in Milwaukee's win last night and is batting a tidy .312 in 25 games since being called up in August. A devastated J.J. Hardy (.225 batting average in '09) was last seen chugging from the octabong in the tailgates at Miller Park.

Woooo dropping 6 of 7 to the goddamn Royals to end the season!

That should make this weekend interesting. I am going on Saturday.

Burn down the Baggiedome on your way out.

I have one more game on the last weekend but I will make sure to bring my matches then.
