A look ahead
This week gives us the first interleague games of the season, which leads me to this week's Bad Baseball feature match-up. Saturday night, Padres at Mariners, a match-up of two incredibly disappointing teams in 2008. Randy Wolf will start for San Diego against Seattle's Miguel Batista. Each team features a dreadful offense, so look for a "pitcher's duel"... on paper, anyways. M's fans are going to need all the coffee in the world to stay awake through this one.
In other Bad Baseball news from the weekend...
Brewers ex-closer Eric Gagne - that's right, ex-closer - blew another game in the 9th inning Saturday night. Technically it wasn't a blown save since the game was tied when he entered, but he promptly slammed the door shut on his own team by allowing 2 runs on 3 hits. Milwaukee manager Ned Yost says he'll go with a closer by committee approach while Gagne takes a mental break.
