GAME TIME 7:10 CDTThings to watch for this game:
- Albert Pujols and Scott Rolen have historically just teed off on Odalis Perez: Albert’s career line off of him is .647/.714/1.647 (not a typo) with five HR. Scottie has hit for a paltry .429/.529/.929 with two HR.
- As mentioned by several in today’s morning thread, Wainwright seems to have been getting on track recently: he hasn’t given up more than four runs in a start since the 15th of May. Perhaps a match-up against the Royals is exactly what he needs.
- Though not directly related to this game, this Onion article, for me, captures a lot of what I feel was lost with the steroids era. I’m still cheering for Bonds to get quietly injured and to limp into retirement.
