I love Dave, but if you can figure this out, you’re better than me.   His comment after Bucky Jacobsen strikes out:


“And the Mariners are still waiting for their first player to homer in his major league debut.  Seven Mariners have homered in their first at-bat, but not in their debut.”


I’d be stunned if seven Mariners had homered in their first major league at-bat, and I just can’t conceive of a way that they all did it in games other than their major league debut.  But, you know, he’s still Dave Niehaus, so we’ll forgive him and move on to his next unintelligible statement.
