RANK TEAM CHANGE SCHEDULE COMMENT 1 +1 @ SF @ ARI Justin Upton returns to Arizona! Now this we gotta see. 2 -1 vs. TOR @ TB Buchholz gets to take on the Jays again. Will he bring his sunscreen? 3 -- 0 @ HOU @ OAK Yu Darvish vs. the Astros 2: Revenge of the Almost Perfect Game 4 +1 vs. CHC @. LAD Guess who is finally playing like the World Series favorite everyone predicted? 5 -1 vs. CLE vs. HOU Have we mentioned yet how much we love the non-Porcello parts of this rotation? 6 +1 vs. COL vs. NYM Looks like they figured out those bullpen problems. 7 +3 vs. PHI vs. ATL Hosting Upton for the first time is certainly interesting, so long as you feel you can stomach Heath Bell closing again. 8 -2 @ SEA vs. TEX They remain an exciting club, but the recent rash of injuries has dampened that somewhat. 9 +2 vs. NYY @ LAA Don't look now but Hosmer and Moustakas are showing signs of life. Actually do look, that makes the Royals much more interesting. 10 +4 @ KC vs. SEA Now that we know there is a chance of seeing Vernon Wells play third base, the Yankees are a whole lot more intriguing. 11 -3 vs. MIL @ MIA Dusty Baker's machinations are the bane of the Watchability Rankings. 12 +1 @ CIN @ PIT We want to watch Carlos Gomez now that he is becoming such a monster, but oh that pitching staff. 13 +3 @ NYM vs. MIL Releasing Jonathan Sanchez is such an easy way to earn a boost in the Watchability Rankings it almost feels like cheating. 14 -5 vs. STL @ TOR This rotation used to be a daily treat. My how the mighty have fallen. 15 +2 vs. SD vs. BOS Grab some popcorn and see how long this "Maddon getting ejected every game" thing lasts. 16 -4 @ MIN vs. SD The Oriole magic lives on, but it would take some serious wizardy to make a week of them playing the Twins and Padres interesting. 17 +5 @ DET @ PHI The Indians are playing some great baseball right now, but we can only bump them up so much because the more the Tribe wins, the more Nick Swisher douchebaggery we are subjected to. 18 -3 @ STL vs. CHC The Rox are trolling us, having Dexter Fowler lay down sac bunts, demoting a pitcher after turning in six shutout innings and Tulo constantly dealing with nagging injuries. 19 +4 vs. MIA vs. WAS Bonus points since Matt Kemp is apparently the best human ever. 20 +1 vs. PIT @ STL Enough poking fun at the rest of the lousy Met roster, let's just shut up and enjoy the hell out Matt Harvey. 21 +3 @ TB @ BAL They are showing some real life of late plus Nick Hundley might've just become a folk hero for the anti-PED user crowd. 22 -3 vs. OAK @ NYY This team isn't that bad, but every game of theirs feels like a struggle. 23 +3 vs. BAL vs. CWS Oswaldo Arcia, you have our attention. 24 -6 @ ARI vs. CLE What's up, Doc? Nothing. Nothing at all. 25 -5 @ BOS vs. SF Not only was the J.A. Happ incident scary to watch, but now the rotation loses yet another arm and the ones they haven't lost have been very disappointing. 26 -1 @ CWS vs. KC The only reason to watch the Angels anymore is to see if they've fired Mike Scioscia yet. 27 -- 0 vs. LAA @ MIN The Pale Hose facing the Halos and Twinkies means a week worth of games chock full of frustratingly inept offense. 28 -- 0 vs. TEX @ DET Tune in this week to see which basic rule of baseball manager Bo Porter will Jedi mind trick the umpiring crew into forgetting next. 29 -- 0 @ WAS vs. COL Nothing says, "hey maybe I should just watch whatever is on my DVR" more than "the Cubs officially name Kevin Gregg their closer." 30 -- 0 @ LAD vs. CIN No. Just no.
