But that's neither here nor there. Well, I suppose it's technically there, meaning Milwaukee, but it's certainly not here, Boston, nor in any other plane of existence I could possibly give a shit about.
Anyway, idiotic MLB scheduling gaffes notwithstanding, tonight's pitching match-up is... intriguing, to say the least. We have Daisuke Matsuzaka (16-2, 2.97), a pitcher whose stats are in actuality much better than he, against Scott Kazmir (11-6, 2.99), a pitcher whose stats very much belie how dominant he is capable of being. Intriguing, I say! In other words, I have no idea how this will go down. Kazmir pitches well at the Trop, but... the DEVIL Rays are little bitches, so, like, there's that.
Frivolous prop bet of the night: I bet I switch to MNF halfway through. Wait, what?
Serious prediction of the night: Dice-K got shelled by the DEVIL Rays in his last outing against them, tossing 102 pitches in just 5 innings. All jokes about Matsuzaka's reliability aside, I doubt lightning will strike twice for this Tampa Bay team. I see a solid 7 innings with just 3 runs let up from Matsuzaka. Oh, and I bet Kazmir gets lit up like a trailer park at Christmas. 7-4, Sox.
