The start of a new series, against the Clevelanders.
Marco Estrada has another shot at fixing whatever it is that is going wrong. He's only got one more start, after this, before the trade deadline, so I'd think there will be a number of scouts in the stands. I wonder why, in this day and age, teams send scouts to MLB games. You can get all the information you need watching on TV or computer these days.
Drone Boy pitches for Cleveland. He's not having a great season either, 5.59 ERA in 18 starts. His FIP is much lower. 4.09, so maybe he hasn't been as bad as his ERA looks and he has 105 k in 93 innings.
