Filling in for Captain ClutchCrutch is LGFT Jayson Nix, who has the Captain's full support.
- The Giants evened up the series behind a clutch hit by former Tribe farmhand Marco Scutaro. Bonus points if you can remember for whom Scutaro was traded without a trip to B-Ref.
- It has been no secret that the Yankees have been having trouble drawing fans to the ballpark. Fangraphs speculates on where the Yankees fans are (everything is better with a pie graph!).
- Verlander versus Hughes tonight for the Motor City Kitties vs the Evil Empire. This would seem to favor the Kitties at home, but [insert baseball cliche here].
And finally, there is one Indian who has actually played for new manager Terry Francona. Justin Masterson lets his feelings about the hiring be known.
