Game 105, Mariners at Tigers
It’s coming. Page Bruce Willis, but nobody tell Ben Affleck. At the very least, be sure you express affection for loved ones before 2029 — you know, just in case this really is the asteroid with our number.
The Mariners have already taken a deep impact of their own, wiping several mainstay players off the map. It’s a totally different team that takes on the Motor City Kitties this afternoon. This is not all bad: Don’t always knock the doom rock.
Jorge Campillo, fresh from the minors, takes on Jason Johnson. When watching Campillo, just imagine how much faster Felix’s deliveries will look on Thursday — or would look, if the game were televised.
Tonight, root for the Mariners, root for the Mexican Maddux, and root for a tiny asteroid to land squarely on the home of whoever made the decision not to televise The King’s debut.
