Game 136, Angels at Mariners
Furbush vs. Santana, 7:10pm.
Let’s just get this out of the way now: this game won’t be as good as last night’s. Sorry. It’s always valuable to see if Charlie Furbush is progressing at all – if he’s gaining command or if his stuff just looks better – but ultimately, this game’s going to be a let down, because it isn’t Felix slicing through the Angels.
I guess we’ll see if Cesar Jimenez makes an appearance out of the pen. I’m really selling this one, aren’t I?
7: Wells (LF)
9: Robinson (DH)
