Hey, how about taking a break from Theo talk to some actual baseball?

No worries. I'm obviously not deleting any Theo talk; go for it on the threads that already exist. But there are two games to be played today, so here's a place to talk about them.

That is, if it doesn't rain. There's rain in the Detroit area now and storms forecast for St. Louis tonight. Given the mess that rain delays cause and the fact that a game was postponed Sunday when it didn't rain, I'd think MLB would be pretty proactive about trying to postpone a game rather than have it suspended and screw around with the teams' pitching rotations.

Full info on today's games after the jump.

Game time for Rangers/Tigers: 3:19 pm CDT. Rangers lead series 2-1. TV: Fox. Announcers: Joe Buck and Tim McCarver.

Game time for Brewers/Cardinals: 7:05 pm. CDT. Series tied 1-1. TV: TBS. Announcers: Brian Anderson (play-by-play), Ron Darling (analyst), John Smoltz (analyst), Craig Sager (reporter).

This is the only thread I'm posting for today's games. If you need overflows due to extra innings or rain delays, post them in the fanshot section.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
