The bar for Wild Card drama was set pretty high last night, and I don’t know what the Giants and Pirates have in store for a follow-up tonight, but I doubt it’s going to live up to last night’s standards. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball for San Fran, Edinson Volquez for the Pirates, and my Vietro Senses are telling me to go with the Giants. Bumgarner is a stud.
Here’s your game thread if you’re watching, or feel free to talk about anything else. Today’s Yankee injury news isn’t good, because of course it’s not when yesterday’s was. Turns out the pitch to the head that Eric Jagielo took over the weekend broke a bone in his face and he’ll be out 4-6 weeks. Mark Newman confirmed that to Josh Norris. Jagielo won’t be playing in the AZFL and the Yanks will have to pick a replacement. Bummer.
