Modern Declaration: Today's Afternoon Games

  • Rockies at Mets, 12:10: Nothing to see here. Move along. The Mets are 3-6 thus far in August. They're under .500. It looks like Jerry Tranuel may be leaving through the same door he came in: an overly dramatic one in late summer. Meanwhile the Rockies are a shade above lukewarm and are 5 games back in the Wild Card. Jason Hammel takes on Avid Golfer Johan Santana.

  • Red Sox at Blue Jays, 12:37: The Blue Jays followed up their best weekend of the season by getting trounced in the first two games of this series. Heart Attack John Lackey goes for the Sox against Brad Mills. Kid has only made two starts all season. One was good, one was not so good. But what do you expect from a guy that also has to manage the Astros?

  • Snakes at Beers, 2:10: Randy Lopez v. Rodrigo Wolf as Arizona looks for the four game sweep. It will be a refreshing change of pace for their broom, which is usually just used to attack Mexican people.

  • Cubs at Giants, 3:45: Like most pitchers on the Giants, Face Of The Franchise Matt Cain is having another nice year for himself. He has a career 2.41 ERA against the Cubs and a 2.48 ERA this year at home. Looks like another tough day for The Lou Piniella Reality Retirement Tour. Randy Wells goes for Chicago.
