Game 129, Red Sox at Mariners
David Wells vs Gil Meche, 7:05.
David Wells famously claims to pitch while drunk. Gil Meche just pitches like he’s drunk, but we’re pretty sure he’s not.
David Wells is a strike throwing machine. Gil Meche wouldn’t even know how to turn on said machine.
David Wells has had a pretty nice career, winning a lot of games despite average stuff. Gil Meche has spent the last few years stealing the Mariners money by chronically underachieving.
However, we have Doyle, and they don’t, so I predict the M’s win 34-6. Doyle, by the way: .400/.500/.650 in 24 plate appearances as a Mariner. He’s drawn 4 walks and has 4 extra base hits in what amounts to a weeks worth of playing time. 4 walks and 4 extra base hits was a good month for Carl Everett. Huzzah for Doyle!
