Game 6, Rangers @ Mariners
Have you recovered from yesterday’s stomach punch yet?
After two wildly exciting games featuring late-inning comebacks and dramatic errors, this afternoon is the rubber match: Ryan Drese v. Gil Meche, 1:05 p.m.
The next time I start to draw conclusions about where the season is headed based on these first few games, I’m going to remind myself that Ben Molina has more home runs than Hank Blalock, Wilson Valdez has a better batting average than Mark Teixeira and Johan Santana’s ERA is over 7.00. If a baseball season is a marathon, a week is one city block.
