I so hope French beans someone to start the game. Just to make the series spicy. Get Guillen suspended for 100 games for having his whole staff thrown out for retaliation and seeing Podsednik start the second game against Felix.

Anyway! French, who is performing like Washburn while Washburn performs like… not even like French, really.

RF-L Ichiro!
CF-R Gutierrez (“To Tony!”)
2B-R Lopez
DH-L Griffey
3B-R Beltre
1B-L Branyan
SS-R Wilson
C-R Johjima
LF-L Saunders

    Hee hee hee…..Meaningful games in August, Winning baseball. Beating a competitor in the wild card race. That’s just enjoyable.

    And a big shoutout to gwangung for this. Remember how frickin’ miserable baseball was last summer? Here it is August, considerably into August, and it’s still fun, interesting, and enjoyable (and of course, when it goes badly, horrible, irritating, and agonizing). Sure, chances are our M’s are not going to the post-season, but there’s a seriously non-zero chance they WILL.

    As Travolta would say, “Yeah. Ain’t it cool?”

    Mariners: 6
    White Sox: 4
    Obscure “Broken Arrow” references: 1

    And yeah, it IS cool. I still don’t really think the Ms have any serious chance of winning the wild card (just too many good teams in the hunt). But there’s hope that just maybe it could happen. And there’s extra super hope for next year.

    One year ago it all seemed hopeless. Now the possibilities for the future are bright. Maybe the best part is this: it’s easy to really love baseball in Seattle once again.

    If anyone saw it on tv, I was the idiot who tried to catch A.J’s foul ball in the 9th inning with my bare hand, and yes, I do think its partially broken.

    Fun game to watch though

    I’m not sure what part of shield is rubbing you the wrong way, Derek.


    Ichiro understand English well enough to begin answering the question before the translator can translate for him.

    O, sweet irony.

    if only we had a regular hitting catcher.

    In July Johnson had an OPS of .810. So far in August his OPS is .940. Seems like we have one. “A regular hitting catcher”, that is.
