Game 62, Mariners At White Sox
Vargas vs Floyd, 5:10 pm.
For better or worse, the big story tonight is going to be Mike Carp. He joins the team after destroying the PCL for the last six weeks, and Eric Wedge has him in the line-up at DH today; he hits eighth in the line-up. I know new is often exciting, but please keep in mind that he’s still Mike Carp, and let your expectations reflect that. Try not to get disappointed if he doesn’t save the offense single-handedly.
Peguero gets the start in left again after his two hit night last night. It’s almost unfortunate that the team keeps delaying the inevitable with him, as he keeps having nights where he’s just good enough to tempt the team into keeping him in the line-up. In reality, the sooner Peguero is back in Tacoma, the better this team is. An ugly 0-4 might be in everyone’s best interests, at least as long as the team can win in spite of it.
