Baseball in the Daytime: 4-14-09

Here's your test: Count how many baseballs are in the infielder's hand, and you'll then know the number of ball games you can tune into while at work. Fun, right? Details, a click away.

Chicago @ Detroit, 12:05 Central: Lefty John Danks and righty Rick Porcello compare wind-ups and stretches in today's lone mid-day affair. As mentioned yesterday, this series is important for the sake of division-rival standings and smack talk. Hopefully for the Tigers, Porcello is looking forward to rebounding from his first outing in which a pair of long balls gave him the loss. Maybe he's feeling lucky, as the Stockings likely got their yard out of the way yesterday. In a 10-run effort on Monday, Jermaine Dye and Paul Konerko both hit jacks number 300, while Carlos Quentin stroked a pair. Today's White Sox feed is on DirecTV 721. Catch the Tigers' on 722, or listen in on XM 176.

That's it for today. Tune in tomorrow when a unicycle-riding sea lion gives you the forecast.
