Tonight's ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game calls for Jered Weaver and the Los Angeles Angels to travel to Detroit for a constest against Justin Verlander and the Tigers. That's a nice little matchup, but as Baseball Musings' David Pinto points out, there is a much, much better duel on tap for this afternoon:
Sometimes there's one matchup so outstanding, it just jumps to the top of games to watch. That game takes place in San Diego where Brandon Webb faces Jake Peavy. Consider:If this was the ESPN game, the product on the field might almost be good enough to help us ignore the silliness emanating from the booth.
- Both pitchers are undefeated.
- Both have ERAs in the low twos.
- There [sic] in the best pitchers park in the majors.
