Wednesday means day games and we’ve got seven of them this afternoon.

The Cubs and Padres day tilt is a makeup from the rainout the other night. They’ll go again at 8pm Eastern tonight. Beyond that there are some nice head-to-heads here, with the surprising Mat Latos taking on Cole Hamels. Chris Archer vs. Taijuan Walker is pretty spiffy as well. Maybe the best is Marcus Stroman vs. Madison Bumgarner. The Giants could use a stop from their stopper against a heating up Jays club.

Go home “sick” from work. Watch baseball.
