OK, just an incorrect call in last night’s Pirates-White Sox Under 9 play, as I may have been pressing a bit too much with Lucas Giolito involved. Either way, not how I wanted to start off this week, so let’s just get to Wednesday’s slate.

Are the oddsmakers overreacting to last night’s scoring outburst by saddling this middle contest of a three-game set with an over/under line of 10? That remains to be seen. Last night, of course, saw the Royals win the series-opener, 15-7, scoring 10 of those runs in the top-half of the first inning, meaning the over hit before the home team came up to bat.
