Today, we have the luxury (read: distraction) that all three division rivals open their games earlier than we do.
The Angels face Detroit with a matchup of the Gambler (14-6, 4.02 ERA) vs. Santana (13-6, 4.34).
Then, ten minutes later, Seattle plays at Tropicana, with Meche (9-8, 4.56) vs. James Shields (6-6, 4.59)
Finally, at 5:30, it's Cleveland at Texas, pitting Westbrook (11-8, 4.27) vs. Padilla (13-8, 4.16)
As I typed this, Monroe hit a homer off of Santana.
Go Tigers! Go DRays! Go Tribe!
