I know of at least one brave soul who embarked on a most noble quest this morning. Hopefully this Saturday finds the rest of you equally well and only mildly hungover. Let's see what's on the teevee, shall we?
Early Call: Only a few games in the one o'clock timeslot today and just like last week, you should prepare to be wholly underwhelmed. Roy Oswalt's healthy attitude takes the hill against Tom Gorzelanny in an effort to get the Astros only their second win in the 2010 season. Early forecast in Houston calls for a lack of run support and infinite sadness. The Jays are still partying like it's April 2009 and send lefty Brian Tallet (now sans moustache? Sad face.) to the bump to take on the scuffling Angels. Mmmm Pythagorean record justice. And you've got Royals/Twins, Yankees/Rangers, and Brewers/Nationals rounding out your late lunch.
Big Names Abound The Late Afternoon: Tim Lincecum, Johan Santana and Jake "Where Did It All Go Wrong" Peavy are all starting at 4:10PM today, and depending on where you live, you'll get to see one of them on FOX. Guess which one I'm hoping for! Elsewhere Jeremy Guthrie looks to give up less than 3 homers per inning against the AL West leading A's. The latter part of that sentence felt very odd to say.
"You're a funny guy, Sully, I like you...": After a stellar first two starts, Ubaldo Jiminez takes his show on the road to square off against the Braves. Ricky Nolasco and Jamie Moyer (LULZ OLD JOKES) oppose each other in the middle game of what what must sadly be called the Phillies first real challenge of a series in 2010. Tampa Bay and Boston are battling in Boston. Justin Verlander is taking the hill against the Mariners looking to shake off a slow April start and Jerkwheat's shower of tears.
