Game 10, Blue Jays At Mariners

Hernandez vs Litsch, 7:10 pm.

Happy Felix Day!

The Blue Jays are known for whacking the ball out of the park, but they have a lot more RH power than LH power, and with Felix on the mound and Safeco behind him, this is a good match-up for the M’s. Felix is always a good match-up, but this one especially so. Litsch is a classic Blue Jays pitcher – ehh velocity, throws a cutter, gets more outs than you’d think with his stuff. He’s not a strikeout guy, but against the M’s, you don’t have to be.

Jack Wilson is back in the line-up. Wedge says it’s over. Maybe, but his time here this year was limited anyway, and it’s hard to see that this little dust-up won’t accelerate the schedule for shipping him out.

    Now let’s imagine that Figgins was up there.

    Let’s not and enjoy this

    Take that trolls (on other threads) with your silly 120 loss season and the M’s have the worst offense ever nonsense. We won this one didn’t we?

    … and from our special misery came great joy.

    It took Fangraphs awhile to finish the game graph. I think it broke the machine, but the final graph is awesome.

    I’ll always be a USSMariner blog fan first…but I’m DYING to see LL’s game headline.

    Possible headline #5: Rory McElroy relieved by Blue Jays bullpen performance

    Possible headline 5: Donald Wakamatsu arrested for property destruction after destroying thousands of dollars worth of equipment in Safeco Field visitors’ clubhouse in retaliation for Mariners’ comeback win. He states that was temporary insanity over Wedge’s ability to eke out a win that he never accomplished during his brief Seattle tenure.

    but I’m DYING to see LL’s game headline.
