This hardly seems fair. I guess we couldn't keep playing teams worse than us for the rest of the season. For whatever it is worth, if the Mariners continue to win 66% of their games for the remainder of the season then they will finish with 75 wins.

When the season first begins, I bemoan how fast the games seem to go by. By game eight you are just sort of getting used to baseball being on and the season is already 5% over! Oh no. You know absolutely nothing by the end of April and it's about 20% completed. This isn't fair. And then somewhere between then and now, it shifts into the repetitive and usual and I find myself frankly shocked that there are still as many as 41 games left to play. What do you mean there's a whole quarter of the season left? 

Fri Aug 20, 16:05: Felix Hernandez vs. A.J. Burnett

Sat Aug 21, 10:05: Jason Vargas* vs. Javier Vazquez

Sun Aug 22, 10:05: Luke French* vs. CC Sabathia*

I have never seen a pitch chart like Burnett's. See, you don't need three pitches to be a starter. You just need good pitches.

I already found it funny that Javier Vazquez got so much flak from New York fans for his performance there in 2004 but for some reason I find it funnier that he's actually bad this season. Burnett has only been about average as well, but CC has been his usual self. Too bad he has to take the hill opposite Luke French. Poor CC never had a chance.
