The Rangers aren't playing until tomorrow but there are three games on the docket today

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

You have to wait another 27 hours or so for the Rangers to get going but there are three games today that count.

At Noon on ESPN: St. Louis at Pittsburgh - The hated Cardinals take on the Pirates in an early NL Central clash with Francisco Liriano and Adam Wainwright as the probables.

At 3:00 pm on ESPN2: Toronto at Tampa Bay - The Blue Jays open in Tampa to play the Rays as Skydome is probably still waist deep in Labatt Blue bottles. Look for Marcus Stroman and Chris Archer in that one.

At 7:30 pm on ESPN: New York Mets at Kansas City - In an exact replica of the final game of the World Series (besides a swapped venue), the Mets send Matt Harvey to the mound against Edinson Volquez and the Royals.
