Every game has a good story. Tonight, Coco Crisp looks to show he's still got it, as he starts in left and hits second. Aaron Brooks, a potential key cog in the 2016 rotation takes the hill against a formidable Astros Lineup, looking to show he belongs. Jed Lowrie and Brett Lawrie play in the same game, and Glenn Kuiper looks to prove he can go 3+ innings without mixing up the two.

Welcome to bad baseball, folks. Soak up the good weather and the inevitable errors, it can be fun if you make it so.
