Game 75, Mariners at Braves
Carlos Silva! v Tim Hudson. 10:30.
Update: wow, second game in the Riggleman Era and he turns in one of the worst lineups of the year, and that is a tough challenge for him to take on:
I know Beltre’s out, but… this is as deliberately bad as anything McLaren ever turned in.
If you tuned in, saw that lineup, weighed the likely outcomes with Silva pitching, and turned off the TV, I wouldn’t blame you at all.
I think I’m going to revive my “reverse lock” theory of a couple of weeks ago and call another Mariners’ victory, because this lineup shouldn’t have a prayer against Hudson.
