A look ahead
A full weekend recap will be posted sometime Monday morning, I promise, but for now let's take a look ahead to this week's Bad Baseball featured match-ups.
Yup, match-ups, plural, and both come Wednesday night.
The first is when the Yankees travel to Pittsburgh, giving the hapless Pirates their first look at Joba Chamberlain. Chamberlain, fresh off a 9 strikeout performance, should have a field day with this one. Poor Pirates.
Unfortunately, on what will surely be a happy day for Yankees fans everywhere, Giants fans get to bust out the brown paper bag hats for Barry Zito's outing against the Cleveland Indians. Zito, who is 2-11 on the year, will surely have a tough go of it against a talented - if underachieving - Tribe squad.
So there you go. Halfway through the week, with the weekend in plain sight, you get a couple of guaranteed ugly games to hold you over. Enjoy, and check back for a weekend recap in the morning.
