Stuff To Tune In To And Zone Out On For August 12th

floydMajor League Baseball. Philadelphia Phillies at Chicago Cubs. Pedro Martinez’s first start for Philly. As an added bonus, you can either watch it on ESPN or follow it with homer coverage on WGN. It’s your choice, dude. [ESPN/WGN, 8:00 ET]

Big League Softball. Apparently, this is the final and teams are to be announced. They don’t know who’s in the final? This sounds about as organized as a beer league if you ask me. [ESPN2, 8:00 ET]

Get caught up before new episodes start up. Lie To Me. Tonight’s episode: “Life Is Priceless”: “While investigating a building collapse, Lightman discovers a massive cover-up; a billionaire asks the team to determine if his girlfriend loves him for the right reasons.” It has Tim Roth in it, for crying out loud. Watch it. [FOX, 9:00 ET]

Basic Cable Movie of the Night. Batman Begins. This one should hold up well on cable. On a side note: do you think that if someone started up a cable channel that only showed movies Michael Caine appeared in they could broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without ever having to show a repeat for say, the first 6 months? That guy was and still is prolific, man. [AMC, 10:00 ET]
