Full slate of games today. Should be non-stop baseball action from 1:00 to 11:00 EST.

Some interesting thoughts:

A lot of teams' aces going today for their second start. Will be interesting to see if guys like Cliff Lee and Madison Bumgarner can bounce back. Also will see if Samardzija and Liriano can build on their dominance in their first starts.

First start for guys like Pineda, Straily, Porcello, Skaggs, and Peralta - all highly touted on these boards.

Cashner v. Fernandez and Teheran v. Strasburg are going to be fun to watch.

I'll be watching Pineda here at 1 o'clock. I'll try to chime in on how he looks, what the TV crew is saying about him, etc.

AND

Those battle of "#1's" tonight at 7PM EST are going to good duels, especially the Braves-Nats game considering they're the 2 favorites to contend for the NL East crown.

Carrasco is getting destroyed thus far. Willingham takes BP fastball and clobbers it off the wall.

Carrasco throwing BP. Such good stuff, but can't locate. It seems to be this way for a while.

Pineda opened with two 93 mph fastballs, slider 85, fastball up to 94, another slider pulled foul, Fastball getting up to 95 mph now.

Jeter with a weak throw to 1st base, Melky with an infield single. Meh.
