Game 52, Red Sox at Mariners

Colon v Hernandez.

Sold out — or at least, that’s what Ticketmaster told me this afternoon — for the first time since the start of the season.

Funny joke of the day: the M’s are advertising “4-game flex packs” as

Guarantee yourself 4 great games and enjoy a discount this season with a 4-Game Flex Pack! Discounted packs start as low as $72.

I don’t see how they can guarantee that, much less how I, unable to fix the game outcomes, could guarantee it. Unless the M’s implement a “bad game guarantee” where if you see the team get stomped (say, losing by more than six runs or never behind by less than three after the third)(or second) you can trade your stub back in for credit towards another game. They get you back to bilk you for concessions revenue, you don’t have to pay until the team coughs up a decent performance.

    I know this is a little late for today’s game, but Ticketmaster won’t sell you tickets on the day of the game. They don’t really explain that to the customer, however, but that’s why it looked like it was sold out. I’m pretty sure the only way to buy tickets on the day of is at the box office or a team store. Just a heads up if you have the same problem tomorrow.

    This is the most I have heard out of Ichiro in a season. 3 days in a row

    Post game commentators spent a great deal of time talking about blowing up the team.

    Whoa! We’ve had both professional hitting AND professional pitching in this game.

    golly, you’d think that would lead to a win, then.

    So much for those 6 game winning streaks. We were … close.

    If that’s Ichiro sounding pissed at the team management and “some people” (our “analysts”?), I hope we hear more of the same from him. We may see Ichiro and other players’ bodies scattered all over the ballpark after making do-or-die plays, but by gum “some people” will know they gave their lives for that Great Play.
