INTERLEAGUE PLAY UPDATE FOR JUNE
We'll post up the completed May chart over the weekend.
There will be a bit of a flurry in cross-league games late in the month, but we won't be seeing any reprise of the full-on interleague schedule that was the case in the days after Memorial Day.
Who is playing well in the "drip" version of interleague play?
The Rays. They're 9-1.
The Mets. They're 7-1,
The Cubs. They're 7-2.
Detecting a pattern here? Yes: the teams whose nicknames have four letters are hotter than sh*t in interleague play this year.
Who's playing like sh*t in interleague play this year??
Yes, of course. The Marlins (1-8).
And the Brewers (2-7). We know that Mr. BS doesn't own them anymore, but there's something comforting about having his former club turning into a giant, rancid piece o'cheese this season.
Oh, yes: the Giants (2-6). The defending champs have been struggling since mid-May: they've lost 13 of their last 21 games, and their pitching has been shaky.
