On any given day, there are 15 or so games that you can peruse, and you don’t want to get stuck watching the wrong ones! So here they are, the games that we think you should seek out for Saturday, April 14.

Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox- 1:05 EST First Pitch

The Red Sox are on a roll, and if wasn’t for the Mets would be the story of baseball right now. And they are doing it with a bullpen that has been a little shaky so far, with an ERA of 7.71. That is not very good. But the starting pitching has been pretty solid, and their offense has really benefitted from the addition of J.D. Martinez. Xander Bogarts started off really hot, but is already on the DL yet again. That guy has all the talent in the world, but he can’t seem to stay on the field. For the Orioles, it is the pitching debut of  Alex Cobb, their $57 million man. He has always liked pitching in Fenway- his career record there is 5-1 record and a 3.15 ERA. Very good numbers for such a hitter-friendly park. Maybe he will get another Gold Glove caliber play out of Manny Machado:

Atlanta Braves at Chicago Cubs- 2:20 EST First Pitch

Afternoon baseball at Wrigley. There is something peaceful about that. The Braves are playing good baseball right now, with youngsters Preston Tucker and Ozzie Albies mixing well with veterans Freddie Freeman (one of the most underrated players in baseball) and Nick Markakis. Sean Newcomb takes the hill for the Braves, with Jose Quintana taking the ball for the Cubs. Should be a good time in Chi-town, especially for Braves fane if Tucker can do this again:

Rockies at Nationals- 1:05 EST First Pitch
