Lots of weekend series getting underway tonight, so moving this to a Thursday post. You can still make your picks.
Stay Away Series: Astros/Cubs and Padres/Rockies. Both evenly matched not so good teams.
Interesting Series (to me): Phillies/Marlins (for last place in NL East), Nationals/Braves (top of NL East), Tigers/Rays (underperforming and stuck in the middle of their divisions).
Division Leader Matchups: White Sox/Yankees and Reds/Giants.
ESPN Sunday Night: Mets/Dodgers. Mets were on last week. There are a bunch of other more interesting matchups this weekend.
Series of the Weekend: Reds/Giants. I was going with either of the division leader series, this one edged it out with the Giants currently tied for the division lead and the Reds with only a 2-game lead over the Pirates (not counting that they already won today) and Cardinals.
