This week is once again a week of calm.
As far as baseball is concerned, there’s a lot of good series early in the week. The Red Sox host the Angels at Fenway Park. The Cubs travel to Milwaukee in a showdown of #1 vs. #2 in the NL Central Division. There’s the White Sox and Twins in their #1 vs. #2 showdown in the AL Central. The Giants may be hopelessly lost in the NL West, but any time they take on their rival the Dodgers, it’s always interesting.
Then for the weekend, the Angels take on the Yankees who always have trouble with Anaheim. The AL East Division leading Rays hosts the Tigers. Then the Arizona Diamondbacks square off against the Dodgers in the showdown for the lead in the NL West.
The PGA Tour’s World Golf Championships at Bridgestone will take place at the storied Firestone Country Club this weekend. Golf Channel and CBS have the coverage.
The LPGA Tour heads to England for the Women’s Open Championship at Sunningdale Golf Club. TNT and ESPN/ABC will air the tournament.

The US Open Series has the women in Montreal for the Rogers Cup and the men are in Cincinnati for the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters.
