Baseball for an Off Day
It is another one of those lazy Monday off days where there is much to think about and to little to see. Oh, of course, one could watch other teams go at it (I hear Texas and Oakland are scheduled for later), but there are other alternatives as well.
In Clinton right now, the Lumberkings are sending right-hander Kenn Kasparek, who is among the league leaders in many categories, to face Burlington, with Royals prospect Tim Melville taking the mound for them in what could turn out to be a pitcher’s duel.
Alternatively, if you’re in the seven o’clock habit, you could listen to Mike Curto call the Tacoma Rainiers game as Brandon Morrow goes up against Fresno’s Joe Martinez. Thrill-seekers can also tune into Pat Dillon and the Everett Aquasox, with right-hander Luke Burnett pitted against Boise’s Jonathan Nagel. Boise has drawn the least amount of walks in the league at 127, while Burnett has given up the most with thirty.
