“Two-seam fastball could be a boon for M’s pitchers” [Times]
“As April goes, so goes the M’s season” [PI]
“M’s no longer darlings” [Thiel, in the PI]
And the return of the Answer Guy in the PI.
Q: What new eats will be encountered this year at Safeco Field?
AG: The ever-popular Ivar’s will offer “Fresh Catch of the Day” items on a rotating basis, while also taking over the pregame festivities at the fenced asphalt enclosure outside Safeco’s Home Plate Gate. What was originally the Outback Outpost and then the Azteca Caliente Corner is now renamed Ivar’s Clam Bake. Kau Kau BBQ from the International District will offer traditional Chinese eats (Section 136). But Club Level denizens may have the best new Safeco grub — various burgers made with that high-end Kobe beef.
I love that note about the ambiance… “fenced asphalt enclosure”. Mmm, I’ve always wished for a local fenced asphalt enclosure eatery I could enjoy before games.
