A Paragraph With The Mariners – 6

Hot damn we’ve got two wins in a row! And if we’re talking about Clutch Hitting today, Mr. Milton Bradley’s name is definitely in the discussion. Dude hit a 3-run home run in the bottom of the 8th on Tuesday night in a 0-0 tie. Then, in the bottom of the 5th last night, dude yanked a 2-run broken-bat single into left field to tie the game at 2. Yes sir, now we’re talkin’ INDEED. It’s also nice to see Jose Lopez not only work some quality at-bats, but make some tough bare-handed throws to first base. Now we’ve got THREE regulars who are batting over .275! Look out world: here come the Mariners! By the way, solid start by Vargas. Wak played him like a fiddle last night. Yes, Vargas’s pitch count was only at 89. But, he went 6 innings and only gave up 2 runs (not to mention the ‘pen was rested and today is an Off-Day); you can only yank on that lion’s tail so many times before he whirls around and bites your fucking junk off. The lion in this case would be even a mediocre lineup like the A’s turning on a thigh-high 87 mph fastball with no movement. And for those keeping track at home, Brandon League gutted through 2 hitless innings while the man we gave up for him – Brandon Morrow – got shelled by the White Sox to the tune of 7 runs in 4 innings. Yes, I AM that guy. Once we trade you away, I root against you like you tried to friend my mom on Facebook. Of course, one day won’t dictate a winner in that trade. League has to have the oddest fastball I’ve ever seen. In the mid-90s, but its movement and sink almost makes it look like a slider. League is also odd in that he resembles Mac from “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” but that’s neither here nor there.
