Tonight in Seattle, Kason Gabbard takes the hill for the Red Sox in his second Major League start this year. This is one of my favorite things about watching baseball: seeing the future stars get their shot.
It's a little easier watching a guy get his feet wet with a 10 game lead, granted, but Gabbard made 4 starts last year, going 1-3, but had a 3.51 era which isn't too shabby.
He's got his work cut out for him tonight: Felix Hernandez on the bump, and Ichiro at the plate. Best news I've heard all day? Lugo is getting the night off, with Cora getting the start at SS tonight. I know you can't break out of a slump sitting on the bench, but man, has he been a momentum sucking hole in the lineup this year. $36 million for a guy who looks as lost at the plate right now as anyone I've ever seen, including me in the fast pitch section at the batting cages.
