  • Akron vs. Trenton (Espino vs. Tracy)
  • Carolina vs. Potomac (Lee vs. Cole)

This is the first evening I've had to really use MLB.TV since Opening Day - either the Indians were playing, or I had other things to do.

The matchup that sticks out to me is Kansas City-Detroit, both for the division implications and the pitching matchup. Plus, with the Indians traveling to Kansas City next, it's a nice opportunity to scout out the competition. David Price and Clayton Kershaw are also in action, so that probably merits a look-in. Plus there's LGFT Bartolo Colon pitching against the Sawx.

What game are you interested in? And speaking of Kansas City, would you revise your opinion on the big Myers-Shields/Davis deal this winter based on what Davis and Shields have done thus far?

Use this as a general MLB thread or talk about something completely different.
