Game 108, Rangers at Mariners

Fister vs Wilson, 7:10 pm.

In something that kind of qualifies as news, the M’s sent Mike Sweeney to Philadelphia today. The team is basically just doing him a favor, giving him a chance to finish the year with a contender and potentially get his first taste of playoff baseball. He wasn’t going to get much playing time in Seattle the rest of the way anyway. We’ll see how long he can stay healthy in Philly, given that they are apparently expecting him to play first base on a regular basis.

As for tonight’s game, opposing left-handed hitters have managed a paltry .090/.157/.120 line against C.J. Wilson this year. That’s 100 plate appearances, with the total positive results being six singles, three doubles, five walks, three hit batters, and two reached on errors. The other 81 hitters made outs. The Mariners are starting four left-handed hitters tonight. This isn’t going to go well.

    This game is terrible.

    Small strike zone.
    One team basically a AAA team.

    And Garrett Olson on the mound.

    And Lopez screwing up.

    Garrett Olson is so bad his pitches don’t even show up on pitch FX.

    God, this team is depressing.

    Hard to argue with you there, but there are a few things we’ve seen tonight that we haven’t seen much of all season, a HR from a Catcher, and 3 2-out RBI’s.
