I'll be taking a leave of absence until tomorrow afternoon, which explains the early game thread. That also means that tonight's non-game thread post will be delayed until then.
By the way, how about Cole Hamels? In his second career start, he's allowed one run on three hits through 6.1 innings. He's also allowed three walks, but no one's devoid of foibles.
Roy Halladay (5-1, 2.74 ERA) vs. John Lackey (3-3, 3.61 ERA). 10:05 PM EST start.
This projects to be a pitchers' duel, with two of the AL's top pitchers squaring off. I'm actually a big fan of Lackey's, whose game has really improved during the past couple seasons.
