Game 81, Mariners at Royals
A rare 5:10 start time. FSN, KOMO, etc.
RHP Franklin vs. LHP J.P. Howell.
Who the heck is J.P. Howell?
Anyway — this, in terms of level of competition, the second-worst matchup in the AL this year, behind the Devil Rays-Royals. If we’re lucky, in the next hour the Mariners will announce they’ve secured a king’s ransom in prospects in return for trading the last four pitches left in Eddie Guardado’s shoulder.
