    Had tickets to the Columbus Clippers-Indianapolis Indians game. Daisuke Matsuzaka was scheduled to start. Then it rained and they canceled the game. I have mixed feelings about it all because, on the one hand, baseball. On the other hand I dodged the Matsuzaka bullet. Oh well. Dodgers 3, Padres 2: FISTICUFFSMANSHIP!  Zack Greinke hit Carlos…
