There’s Still Time
Last weekend, I road-tripped to an out-of-state wedding that basically took me out of the baseball loop for the weekend. During that time, the Mariners took three of four from the Texas Rangers, dumped Yuniesky Betancourt on the Royals, and acquired Jack Hannahan to help fill the hole at third base.
This weekend, I took my wife on her first-ever camping trip (she enjoyed it, will do it again, thanks for asking) to the mountains of North Carolina, which again took me out of the baseball loop from Friday to Sunday. The M’s won all three games while I was out of town, with Gutierrez showing Cleveland why we love him (he’s now 11th in baseball in wins above replacement, by the way), Felix still pitching like a true ace, and Washburn continuing to inflate his trade value.
I don’t have any plans for next weekend yet, but if the M’s know what’s good for them, I’ll be receiving some airline tickets from the club shortly. I’ve heard Nova Scotia is beautiful this time of year…
