M’s at Rangers, 9/24 game thread
Go Ichiro! Another chance to see Madritsch try to end the season tied with Moyer for the most wins. If someone had told me before this season that no Mariner pitcher would finish the year with more than ten wins, and one of the most valuable pitchers would be Madritsch, I would have said “what, did the team all get crippling season-long bouts of chicken pox?”
And sort of, yeah, they did.
But if I may suggest another game to watch… Yankees at Red Sox, 4:05 our time, Mussina versus Martinez. I know Mussina hasn’t been himself this year, but this is potentially a great game in the making, and in Boston, late-season, I think this could be good. And if it’s not good, it’s only an hour before the start of the M’s game.
And if you’re one of our Jewish readers and observing Yom Kippur, you could watch the first game, drink beers, gorge yourself on nachos, wings, and whatever else you wanted, keep going through most of the Mariners game (at 5:05) and be happily contented to start your fast at 7:01. Actually, beer’s probably a bad idea, because you’d get much thirstier later. But you get my point.
