It’s Friday night. Your chosen baseball squad is in also-ran mode, filling their lineup with never-was Quad-A roster fodder and potential free agents just hoping to make it to October unscathed. Your local stadium is a barren wasteland, bereft of joy and entertainment.
As an acknowledged baseball addict, you need an outlet. You need a release. You want a show but can’t bring yourself to watch the Yankees (East or West) because it just hurts too much. What is left?
Power and beauty remain, friends. Power and beauty take the mound tonight when the Tyler Skaggs leads his Arizona Diamondbacks against the San Diego Padres, the Friars celebrating the return of injured hurler Andrew Cashner. If you must watch one game tonight, make it this one. You will not be disappointed.
