Game Thirty-Nine Recap
A lot of stuff happened. A lot of it mattered. But there’s only one thing you need to know. With a one run lead in the 7th inning, two runners on base, and nobody out, Wak went to the mound and summoned Sean White. That’s not the only reason they lost, but it’s reason enough to earn it.
11 games under .500, 7 1/2 games out of first place… If the Mariners don’t make wholesale changes tomorrow, then we might as well just shut the blog down and go do something else for the next four months. This is beyond ridiculous. The season is a few days away from being a lost cause, and the Mariners continue to lose due to staggeringly bad performances from the worst players on the roster, who are repeatedly put into remarkably important situations. Players who don’t even belong in the major leagues.
It didn’t have to be like this. Despite all the slumps and the injuries and the problems, the team could have survived. But they can’t survive another day of DH Griffey, Setup Man White, or Shortstop Tui.
Changes. Tomorrow. Or Fury.
