It looks like the rain in Baltimore will hold off long enough for Josh to go for Major League-leading win number 5. I’m sure we’ll hear a lot from RemDawg and company about Sock-Gate, but let’s hope the players are focused on increasing their lead in the AL East before round 2 with the stumbling Yankees this weekend.

New York will throw Philip Hughes to the wolves tonight in the Bronx. Hughes is just a couple months shy of his 21st birthday and reports say he may be shaving soon. Not the guy I’d want as a savior, especially when facing a red-hot Toronto batting order. A Yankee loss tonight would mean their worst 20-game start since 1991.
