The Seattle Mariners open a three game weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles tonight. Aaron Harang will scale the hill for the M's and face O's righty Chris Tillman, a name I gather you've heard a time or two.
Baltimore currently sits 5.5 games behind Boston in the American League East and half a game out of the second wild card as of this writing. So, the M's can either help their cause or play a little spoiling action this weekend.
I have to admit, finding words for this post is a little tough after last night. And, you know, those guys on this team today. I think what has made all of this difficult is how the M's teased us there for a while. This is probably just regression slapping us in the face, but sometimes you don't want to talk WAR and BABIP and wOBA and ERA-. You just want to see the club you so madly love and invest your energy into win ballgames.
