Seattle at Toronto
Boy… this’ll be a thrilling confrontation, won’t it? An active team with a plan suffering a huge setback from injuries hosts a team that implemented a disastrous plan and is also now racked by injuries.
Reasons to watch the remaining Mariners games
- Can Melvin forge a rotation that must include at least one pitcher from a set of guys that haven’t seized opportunity yet?
- Can Melvin patch together a bullpen with the pieces he’s given?
- Is Meche’s arm going to fall off while he’s on the mound, or on the side during warm ups?
- Is Jose Lopez overmatched, or unlucky?
- What in the world is this team going to do for September call-ups? Tacoma’s already been gutted and we’re already seeing the team have second thoughts about exposing these pitchers to ML hitting.
- Does Melvin get fired?
- Does Bavasi get fired?
- Where do the Mariners wind up in next year’s draft?
