A Paragraph With The Mariners – 119

Tui is some kind of bad-ass motherfucker goin’ on right here.  Now I want you to LOOK at that box score and tell me what you see.  Because I see a guy who hit yet ANOTHER 3-run home run.  You know what you don’t see in that box score?  Sean White sucking his dick for preserving that bullshit Hold he “earned” thanks to Tui’s miracle diving catch in left field to end the 8th inning.  This bullpen is being held together with scotch tape and chewed bubble gum right now.  You know what I see when I look at this bullpen?  Brandon League and 6 guys who won’t be around next year.  By the way, in order to save any semblance of face in that Morrow/League trade, we have to make League the closer next year.  That’s just all there is to it.  He needs to be the closer and the next bucket of managerial chum needs to reinforce the edict that:  Brandon League Will Throw More Forkballs.  Anyway, way to go Tui.  I’d be a lot more impressed if you did it against the Yankees this weekend (they certainly have the ballpark for it), but then again I didn’t see anyone else on the Mariners jacking sliders for 3-run homers against Baltimore this week.  That’s gotta be good for something (29th in MLB in Home Runs … I don’t know who we just passed, but it’s in no small part to Tui’s dominance these last two games).
