Game 21, White Sox at Mariners
RHP Jon Garland v LHP Jamie Moyer, 7:05, FSN for TV.
I’m a little curious if Ozzie, who’s got a temper and has some old-time opinions on how to play the game, will find an opportunity to plunk Carl Everett following their war of words. Almost every manager this wouldn’t even be a possibility, but Ozzie? He might go for it.
The two teams have had almost totally different seasons so far. The former World Champions, who I advised people to bet wouldn’t get to 91 wins, have 13 already (gulp). The Mariners, who I thought would be a .500 team, have been nearly as bad as the White Sox have been good. The White Sox have allowed 22 fewer runs and scored 19 more than the Mariners (in two fewer games).
The Mariners, btw, are 0-6 in one run games so far. Ow.
