Game 47, Mariners At Twins
Vargas vs Pavano, 5:05 pm.
Considering that the Mariners can’t play themselves, their best match-ups in terms of keeping their opponents off the board are almost certainly Minnesota and San Diego. Both teams have lousy offenses and play in big parks where it’s really hard to hit home runs. The last week has been fun, but it’s also been an exercise in the importance of park factors and quality of opponent. For three more days, though, we should be able to continue to enjoy the M’s pitchers all looking like Cy Young.
