Game 129: CC vs. Price or the ‘this could be really bad’ game

I don’t mean to be a pessimist – okay, yes I do because I am one – but I do not have high hopes for this game especially not after what happened last night to poor Hiroki Kuroda.

And why am I so pessimistic? Well, CC Sabathia has had a rough season in 2013 and he’s terrible down in Tampa and David Price has been pitching really well of late. I think Price went like three months or something like that without walking a batter so this should be an excruciating game to watch. Okay, it wasn’t that long. I’m exaggerating and too lazy to actually look it up.

Anyway, I’d suggest drinking some booze to get through tonight but only if you’re of legal age, of course because I do not condone underage drinking.

Here are the lineups:

Suzuki RF
Nunez SS
Cano 2B
Soriano LF
Rodriguez 3B
Wells DH
Granderson CF
Reynolds 1B
Romine C

Sabathia P

Jennings CF
Zobrist 2B
Longoria 3B
Myers DH
Rodriguez LF
Escobar SS
Loney 1B
Molina C
Fuld RF

Price P
