Today, a series starts between the Royals, last place in the AL Central, and the Arizona Diamondbacks, 2nd place in the NL West.
Another series starts between the Giants, 1st place in the NL West, and the Minnesota Twins, 4th place in the AL Central.
I'd like the Royals to not be in last place. I'd like the Giants to remain in 1st place.
Okay boys, just head out there and sweep 'em. G'head. You can do it. Never mind that the Diamondbacks look genuinely decent, and thus are better than the Royals. Never mind that the Twins are red-hot, and have been playing much better than the Giants lately.
Do it for me, but mostly, do it for yoursel...ah, screw it. Do it for me, damnit.
