The playoff situation could change again.

The AL Wild Card could see a few changes. The White Sox lead Boston and Minnesota by a half game. Boston has the day off, but Chicago is playing a makeup game against the Angels at home at 4:05 pm PT. Kelvim Escobar will be going for the Angels and Mark Buerhle for the White Sox.

The Twins welcome Francisco Liriano back into the rotation in a game at Detroit starting at 4:05 pm PT. Zach Miner starts for the Tigers.

The NL Wild Card could be in a three-way tie if the Reds lose while the Dodgers and Diamondbacks win. The Reds host the Cardinals in a 4:10 pm PT game with Jeff Weaver facing Elizardo Ramirez. Arizona will be at home against the Giants starting at 6:40 pm PT with Jason Schmidt pitching for the Giants and Enrique Gonzalez for Arizona.

The Dodgers, winners of nine straight, take on Colorado at 7:10 pm PT. Josh Fogg pitches for the Rockies and Brad Penny for the Dodgers.

Kip Wells was scratched from his start for the Rangers in Oakland (7:05 pm PT) and Edinson Volquez will get the start against Esteban Loiaza. Last year, Volquez went by the first name of Edison, but, like all men of sophistication, he found his extra n.

With the Dodgers on such a roll, I hope they're not Underestimating the Fogg.

I prefer to look at it as the Rangers realizing that Volquez does not have electric stuff.
