Game 162, Felix Appreciation Day!
I know the schedule says it’s “Kids Appreciation Day” but what have the little buggers done for the Mariners lately, huh? Maybe if we were talking about low-service time players, sure, but– it doesn’t matter!
And if Wak was holding Aardsma back yesterday in case he needed to get Felix that last win, and having guaranteed a winning season he was willing to trade yesterday for today knowing he’s going to throw everything he’s got into this game, well, that’s kind of cool in its own way.
And if you have a chance to get to the park, do it — it’s a lovely day, and with a 1:10 start you should be entirely comfortable as Felix goes about mowing down Texas.
