No, really. You can go home now.
HOU @ BOS: Morton vs. Porcello (HOU up 2-1)
WAS @ CHC: Scherzer vs. Quintana (series tied 1-1)
CLE @ NYY: Bauer vs. Severino (CLE up 2-1)
LA @ ARI: Darvish vs. Greinke (LA up 2-0)
Lots and lots of high quality pitchers. I'll bet a couple of them even go 5 innings.
Not sure if that was worth getting home at 4 in the morning, but it was a good time.

If I never hear "Go Cubs Go" again, well, that'd just be as sweet as punch.
Looking forward to a good Game 7. Perhaps it will come down to the very last batter...
Seriously thinking about heading to Wrigleyville to watch it...
I already warned the wife that if the Cubs make it to the end, I'm definitely heading to the city to watch them tear Wrigleyville to pieces.
Have the Twins turned a corner? After struggling the pick up wins in the last two weeks, the Twins have now rattled off 3 wins in a row as they beat the Cubs 7-2.
The Cubs defense gave the Twins some runs by playing clownball, but the Twins were hitting Cubs pitching hard all night long so in the end it didnt matter. Of the 26 hits the Twins have during this 3 game win streak, 13 of them have been for extra bases. Trevor Plouffe led the way with 2 doubles and 4 RBI. The only blemish was Plouffe being nabbed on the base paths twice. Joe Mauer looked like Joe Mauer with a hit and two walks (although one was a non intentional IBB). This were good for the offense and it was nice to see more than 2 or 3 runs scored in a inning/game
Phil Hughes was great tonight, only allowing 2 hits in 8 innings. Of course one of those hits was an Anthony Rizzo home runs because 1) Rizzo is good and 2) Phil Hughes is giving up a lot of home runs this season. JR Graham pitch the ninth and gave up a Rizzo HR. Why cant the Twins have a young slugger on the team? Home runs are cool!
The Twins are now 37-30 and we in the homestretch to July. Its going to be hard to lose 90 games this year.
