Because tomorrow, it begins. 9 f*cking 37 PM EST (that's 9:37) start time on Thursday and Friday night. Don't we usually get one afternoon game out of this annual Angel taint handing? When games are on that late I feel robbed of my rooting powers because to be quite honest, after 11 PM unless I am fully medicated on Sam Adams I just don't have it in me to be swearing and throwing stuff at the tv like it's 8 o'clock. Does this mean we can inconvenience Angels fans by starting Sundays game at a Marathon Monday-esque 11 AM, so 8 AM for them? The playing field needs to be leveled somewhat.
In case you were the one not watching last night, the Twinkies won in the 12th and this guy, Brian Duensing, will be facing probable Cy Young runner up CCheeseburger Sabathia in game 1 tonight. Yup, I see that series going the distance. I think 99% of the country was rooting for the Tigers and everyone had the "Well at least Verlander can go twice" mentality as the only way to take down the Yanks, but when a team is hot and gets zero rest and zero respect, they can be dangerous. Are the Twins dangerous? Sweet Brian Duensing I hope so.
