Good morning, Facebook and Good Morning, sportscaster.
Welcome to another episode of all things the Watcher.
Thanks for joining me again this morning as we give you The rundown of today's sports, starting with baseball.
Got a lot of action today, including a doubleheader with Baltimore and Tampa Bay.
First game is a 12 o'clock second game is at 3 40 there a most of the headers The last couple years have been one team wins 11 team with together.
But I kind of like temper way to win both games here.
Baltimore's just completely out talented right now in this Ah, in this matchup.
But, uh, you play the games and and see who wins at the end of the day.
Yeah, I don't like Baltimore, either.
Game today, Um, moving on down to Texas at the Yankees at 3 30 Yankees.
They really are.
I don't see them losing this game.
Philly at Cincinnati.
Philly is in a wild card.
Let's take a look at the wild card situation here.
Um, the nationals are three games up in the wild card standings.
And Chicago is two and 1/2 games up on the Phillies.
The Arizona, who is three and 1/2 games behind Chicago, followed by Milwaukee and New York Mets, who are four, both four games back of Chicago in the wild card fight.
Oh, huh, That's good.
Be a fundraiser to watch the rest of the month expected.
Thio get even tighter, going down the stretch as the season winds down.
Oh, we may even see a playoff game to see who wins the last wild cards, but who knows? Um, the Mets at Washington That has been one heck of a game.
Sorry, folks. On Facebook.
That's been one heck of a game matchup for you to team again, both teams fighting for walkers.
But nationals solidly three and 1/2 games up in that race, followed by the Mets, wade out for four days out of the second wild card spot.
So you got the grump versus shirts around the mountains today for Ah Washington Server and the ground for the Mets.
Run's gonna be at a premium today.
It's gonna be a very low scoring game, in my opinion, Um, unless one player one of these pictures is just not hitting their marks.
That is gonna be a no.
Um, next game is the Marlins at the Pirates? Yeah, white socks at the Indians.
Indians should win that one.
Minnesota at Boston Now Boston has not been, huh? Who they should be this year? What people have forgotten about it because they haven't played as great as they should have.
And, um, look who is in the race for the wild card? The Boston Red Sox.
Eso Right now you have champion in the first wildcard spot.
Indians in the 2nd 1 game back is the A's in Boston is only five and 1/2 games back.
I'm not saying they're gonna come back and win the wild card, but they're making it interesting.
Um, to Ronald at Atlanta.
That's gonna be a nice matchup.
You have fun going, uh, for the Blue Jays on the mound and filter Nev.
It's for the Braves.
Nice pitching matchup there.
Even though fun is only got eight innings pitched, I still think it's gonna be a great matchup.
Um, Houston and Milwaukee What again? That was last night.
Freaking out world.
Sir, you are not well Street, but M v P candidate Christian Yell.
It's hitting a home run to tie the game in the ninth inning.
Um, you have to tell you, Greinke on them out for the Astros and Lyle's on the mountain for Milwaukee.
As much as I want to say, Milwaukee has chance only because they're at home and they played really well at home.
Um, Greinke is a shutdown picture, and he's no stranger to the Brewers.
Is he? Can't just came over from the diner back foot nine, mixing with the Dodgers.
So he knows the nationally quite well.
And and I expect this game to be, um, pretty pretty solid.
Gerrit Cole at 14 strikeouts last night, Uh, second game in a row that he's had 14 strikeouts.
Pretty impressive pitching.
But, you know, did I get the win because of that home run in the night? Um, Boone are giants at the Cardinals again? Um, this comes down to the wild cards.
Why? Oh, we have I know the Giants air blow the Mets in the wild car standing.
Um, I think they're, like, eight games out, but, you know, they still have a chance to come back in and get back into the wild card race.
But say Lewis is not in the wild courage because the three games up on the Cubs in the NL Central should they falter and dropped down.
It's a second place.
Then they would be in the wild card race.
So you don't want to forget about them when you're talking about wild card moving down Seattle at the Cubs.
That's games at five o'clock Pacific, uh, again, the Cubs trying, trying todo get the second wild card spot.
Next game is Detroit at Kansas City to worst teams in the league.
Yeah, these two teams the Marlins and Baltimore, like there's this.
Wow, like, can we told them already? Almost.
You don't want to do that.
San Diego at Arizona.
National League match up.
Here we have Bolanos vs Kelly, Uh, belongs going for San Diego.
Kelly for Arizona, Obviously.
Uh, yeah, this is gonna be in the game nationally, West teams fighting each other is always gonna be a good match up.
Um, Lily of the Angels at Oakland A's at seven o'clock.
That's gonna be a really good game.
The Angels are not anywhere close to where they want to be on the year.
Um, bruv yet 24 a half games out of first place.
Oh, not even close.
Wildcard spot receiver.
That wild car wrecks.
They are 15 games out in the wild card race.
They have virtually no chance of making the playoffs.
Oh, but aides do.
And so the edges come play spoiler, beat A's a couple of times, get them fall out of the wild card spot.
You know, if you're not gonna win, you want your arrival to lose.
And if you can control that more power to you.
Glass gave on the schedule for Major league baseball.
Is the Iraqis and Cici Rodriguez going against the Dodgers and Julio your eyes? Wow.
Dodgers bats woke up last night.
Where did that come from? Why haven't we seen that last week? Just ridiculous.
Uh, but, uh, yeah, I like the doctor's getting here in this situation here.
Although I like that name cheating Rodriguez just just kind of float right out.
Um, but I like the doctors in this game wn ba only three games on the schedule, but all of them have playoff implications.
So the Mystics, they're trying to solidify the number one seed.
They're going up against the Liberty at four o'clock, and then you have the storm at the Mercury.
Those of the 78 seas and there are seven.
Seat is, um, half a game back of the 16.
So trying to work in the rankings there for the playoffs.
The dream at the sparks of Dream Sparks a number four seed there hacking below big Yes, and 1/2 game up on Chicago in the playoff rankings there.
Uh, do you have, ah, playoff implications every one of these three games, and it's gonna be interesting watching.
Personally, I'm gonna be watching the Dodgers.
That's who I report.
Oh, and then last day to talk about today is actually gonna be the first thing on TV.
Open first on the left side, you have Serena goal going up against John Wayne.
Um, I like surreal in this matchup.
How Rick Youngling is, uh, she's quite formidable.
She'd be Ashleigh Barty.
The World World Tennis Association number to every match has been won in straight sets, so she's not had to go to 1/3 set at any point so far.
It's quite impressive, if you ask me.
L announce that the, uh, with Alina who's won in straight sets going up against Johanna Konta in the other quarter Final contest want, uh, I want a straight sex except for against the W th a number three pliskova.
She had taken extra set in that matchup.
But you're going to go up against the world ranking number three.
You're doing pretty good over in them.
Inside you have standards.
Last, uh, Stanislas Wawrinka going up against Daniel Medvedev.
Um, both have struggled a little bit.
Uh, but in the end, I like Mitt members down here.
Um, he is just that much better.
It's just just just a little bit better.
And I think that, um, ultimately, we'll get him on the edge and into the seventies.
Uh, and who would he be facing? This means you'll be facing the winner of Federal versus Grigor.
Demetria, Come on.
Who do you think I'm taken here? Um, And until Federer, the Brokovich and Nadal showing signs that they just don't have it anymore, I'm gonna take those three every single time.
Look, that's gonna be it.
For what? Two. Watch this morning.
Um, come back tomorrow for another episode, as we will have Wednesday baseball.
Which means get away day for some teams.
Sometimes it's not till Thursday, but we will have some daytime baseball tomorrow.
That's gonna be off, folks.
