Off day games to watch open thread, June 23

No Royals, no problem. Ok, maybe a little problem.

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

There is no Royals game tonight, which is sad. That being said, there are other baseball games tonight. It's not a huge group, and a lot of them are National League games, but hey, it's something.

Here they are in all their glory. Discuss away, but please be nice to the poor Golden State Warriors fans who have no direction in life after being defeated by LeBron.

Chicago Cubs at Miami Marlins

Matchup: Lester v Chen

Royals relevance: Not much, unless you hate the Cardinals, and then maybe a bit

Excitement level: A bear attacking...well, a marlin

New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Matchup: Harvey v Wisler

Royals relevance: Zero, unless you are Dayton Moore or Jeff Francoeur

Excitement level: A toaster oven with a slightly faulty on/off switch

San Diego Padres at Cincinnati Reds

Matchup: Friedrick v Lamb

Royals relevance: Quite a bit, if you're interested in John Lamb

Excitement level: Gloriously flowing blonde hair with a disgusting patch of facial hair

Arizona Diamondbacks at Colorado Rockies

Matchup: Greinke v Butler

Royals relevance: World of Warcraft and Chipotle

Excitement level: World of Warcraft and Chipotle

Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels

Matchup: Graveman v Lincecum

Royals relevance: Moderate, but neither are likely to be all that good this year

Excitement level: Watching a couple of people you didn't like fight each other
