Off night MLB scoreboard watch open thread


There are only four games tonight and none of them include the Yankees. If you want to watch baseball, feel free to talk about it here. You have:

Cleveland Indians @ Baltimore Orioles at 7:05 pm
Ubaldo Jimenez vs. Zach Britton

The Orioles are just two games out of first place in the AL East and hold a half game lead over the Yankees in the Wild Card. The Indians are four games back from the first place Tigers and three games out of a Wild Card spot. Nick Swisher is back in the lineup after missing time with a shoulder injury and any game with Manny Machado and Chris Davis in it is going to be exciting, but you should be rooting for the Indians tonight.

Toronto Blue Jays @ Tampa Bay Rays at 7:10 pm
Esmil Rogers vs. Jeremy Hellickson

Root for the asteroid. The Jays have won eleven in a row to bring them back into relevancy and tie the Rays for last place in the division. You might not know who to root for if you want Toronto's hot streak to end, but also want to see Tampa Bay in last place.

Philadelphia Phillies @ San Diego Padres at 10:10 pm
Cliff Lee vs. Eric Stults

The Phillies are under .500, 7.5 games behind the Braves, and 8.5 games outside of a Wild Card spot. The Padres, on the other hand, are at .500 and 3.5 games out of first place in the NL West. The Padres being successful sounds like fun and no one wants to root for Philly.

San Francisco Giants @ Los Angeles Dodgers at 10:10 pm
Madison Bumgarner vs. Hyun-Jin Ryu

Dodgers vs. Giants is always exciting, but one is in last place and the other is clinging to three games out of first place in the NL West and is in danger of being overtaken by the Rockies and Padres. Enjoy some Yasiel Puig and wish that the Yankees could get talent like that.
