Well, no football news today so your boy dutch is going to try his hand at some baseball stuff.  Here’s the recap of tonight’s MLB games and what to expect:

4pm, Giants v Cardinals- Matt Holiday’s vicious slide on Marco Scutaro is going to get some retribution.  Maybe hit him on his second at bat.  Matt Cain hopefully won’t make it too obvious.  Fact is, Scutaro is balls to the wall on fire, batting .362 with 40 runs and 44 RBIs in 61 games after being acquired in late July.  While he’s slid a little bit in the playoffs but in the NLCS he’s 4-8 with two RBI’s.  The fact is, both starting pitchers won 16 games this season and it’s going to be big to see which pitcher can go longer.  The giants will need their bullpen for the next game with Lincecum coming up, you just never know which personality will show when he takes the mound.

8pm, Yankee’s v Tigers – Je-sus-cahrisst where do I start?  I honestly think the Yankee’s take this one.  Yea, the Tigers have the best record of any team against the Yankees but can they really lose 4 in a row?  All they need is 1 game to at least show a bit of proof that they belong there.  The worst thing for the Yankee’s is that Giradi really don’t have ANY easy decisions when it comes to putting together his lineup.  No matter where he looks, it’s mostly under performers and sad sacks.  However, when it comes down to it, all the pressure is on the Tigers which must feel good to a Yankee’s squad who has been terrible under pressure this series.
