Game 9, Indians At Mariners
Tomlin vs Bedard, 1:10 pm.
Not one to sit around and wait for the ship to right itself, Eric Wedge is putting out his let’s-try-something-new batting order, after watching the offense flail aimlessly for the last week. I’m just glad this means Luis Rodriguez gets a start. Normally, I’d say something here about the team running out eight left-handed bats in a row against an RHP, but Josh Tomlin has shown no platoon split so far in his big league career, and it’s not like the M’s have exploited platoon match-ups so far this year anyway. I’ll just say that I’m pretty sure we won’t end the year with two home runs, and it will be nice when Chone Figgins isn’t leading the team in round trippers.
