- Tigers at Yanks, 1:05: Hoooowhee. Expect some fireworks today. Miguel Cabrera got beaned, Brett Gardner tried to break up a DP with what the Tigers called a dirty slide but Detroit didn't do all that much in the way of retaliation. But postgame Jim Leyland muttered some trademark profanities and today could be, in the words of Warner Wolf, AN ALL OUT WAR. Porcello v. Hughes.
- Nats at Braves, 1:05: How healthy is new Braves acquisition Derrek Lee? So healthy that he won't be with the team today. He's resting his back and is just going to wait until the Braves swing through Chicago and pick him up. "Honey, the Braves are in the driveway honking!" Anyway, it's John Lannan v. Derek Lowe with a broom.
- Padres at Cubs, 2:20: One time years ago, I saw Against Me! at Common Grounds in Gainesville. During the show the girl in front of me squatted and peed in her beer cup. Then she threw it at the band. I wonder if she ever goes to Cubs games? San Diego goes for the 4 game sweep with Mat Latos on the mound. He went to my high school. Carlos "Tons Of Fun" Zambrano goes for the Pisscups.
