Jeremy Bonderman (?!) vs. Scott Diamond.
The Twins have somewhat gotten well lately against bad teams, and are up to an unimpressive-but-not-like-the-past-two-seasons 24-29. Bonderman last pitched in 2010 and is returning from multiple surgeries; normally I'd like a story like this to start with a happy comeback, but that can wait a game, right?
I'm going to link to the WGOM 2013 Predictions Spreadsheet since we'll be exactly one-third of the way through the season after this game. For the division winners, I highlighted any pick that is currently on track for the playoffs. For the wild cards, the darker yellow shows that both picks are on track while the lighter denotes one team is correct.
TEAMS ON TRACK FOR PLAYOFFS:
7 - Philosofer

spookymilk (4). I needed to find a way in which I looked like I was ahead.

Does anyone see any other fun stuff there? I didn't do updates on the rookies since many haven't joined the big club and it would just lead to depression over Hicks's opening month. I didn't look at MVPs either, but that's mostly because it would take a while. I'm happy with my Upton pick, though.
