If this weren't a work day, having baseball at 9:30 in the morning would be pretty sweet. But it is, so it isn't.

Towers is the rare finesse righty control artist who's stuck in the Majors. Like any such pitcher, he has his problems with the longball, having yielded more than one and a half per nine innings over his career. How he does will depend on the guys behind him - if they're catching the ball, Towers could go seven or eight innings, but if they're not, he'll be gone by the fourth. Sound familiar?
