Game 84, Mariners at A’s

Hernandez vs Harden, 1:05 pm.

Happy Felix Day is ruined by Fox’s arcane blackout rules, which prevent everyone in the country from seeing this game. MLB continues their stupid anti-fan policies, which prevent people from enjoying their product and exposing the game’s best pitchers to a new generation of fans.

But, regardless of the fact that no one can see it, the M’s will still play. Felix takes the hill, and once again, we all scream in unison – Mix. Your. Pitches.

    Comment 271 has totally baffled me. Not only am I amazed that an M’s fan would actually root for the Angels to win so that they can possibly put more distance between them and the Mariners, but how and who is Steinbrenner going to buy before the deadline that would turn this Yankee team into a playoff contender??????

    It’s really not nearly as cut and dried as people are saying. Cool Standings shows the Mariners with a 16 percent chance at the division, and a 13 percent chance at the wild card. That’s not much of a difference. The Yankees still have a 7 percent chance at the wild card, mostly because they are a much better team than their record shows; they are fr better on runs scored vs runs allowed than the Mariners are. It is not at all out of the question that improvements to the Yankees could put them in the thick of the wild card race in a hurry. We’ll be fighting the Angels all year, assuming we stay in the race; but another bad run could knock the Yankees out for good. I’d rather the Angels lose, myself, but there’s a reasonable argument for rooting for them to beat the Yankees — however one feels about it emotionally.
