Red Sox v. Tigers, 7:05 pm. The Sox look to win the 4-game series after dropping an ugly last-minute loss to Detroit last night. PUT IN JED LOWRIE. The Sox are sending Beckett to the mound... Beckett's still struggling a bit to find his groove for the season, but here's hoping he'll toss some fire tonight. Squaring off against Beckett is Justin Verlander, who might very well be the most consistently disappointing fantasy league player ever. Every year I think "oh hey, a number 1 starter on a team that's always a division contender... how can I go wrong?" It's bizarre the way Verlander can win 17 and 18 games in a season and still somehow be dead weight in a fantasy lineup. Anyway, he's 1-5 with a 6.28 ERA on the season. I like the Tigers, but they are lame this year and I hope we beat them.
Frivolous Prop Bet of the Night: Having exceeded their offensive quota for the week in last night's game, the Tigers will actually manage to score negative runs in this game and Jim Leyland will stamp his tiny little feet in rage as he injects nicotine directly into his veins.
Serious Prediction of the Night: Rondo's been playing mightily in this post-season. I'm calling a huge double-double on assists and points from him. Yay!
Enjoy the games, everyone. Leave some love in the comments if you're feeling inspired.
