Cleveland at Tampa Bay, 7:15 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: CC Sabathia (8-8, 3.29 ERA)
Tampa Bay: Casey Fossum (6-5, 4.95 ERA)

Fossum was the marquee player (don't laugh) going to Arizona in the Curt Schilling deal. Fossum somehow started 27 games for the Diamondbacks in 2005, and posted a svelte 6.65 ERA. Arizona traded him to Tampa for Jose Cruz after the season, and he's been a reasonable innings eater for Devil Rays the past couple of seasons.
