Game 43, Padres at Mariners
Richard vs Snell, 7:10 pm.
Ian Snell makes his triumphant return to the rotation by default, as he wasn’t as bad as Ryan Roland-Smith. He’ll try to shut down the Padres tonight, but unless he’s figured out how to to get lefties out in the last few weeks, I’d imagine Adrian Gonzalez will have all kinds of fun this evening.
Richard is a righty, by the way, but Saunders is not in the line-up. His small sample size power display is not as shiny and new as Sweeney’s small sample size power display. Defense, schmefense. We are slaves to the hot hand. I’m a moron.
