23-23: Chart

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

A tough win against the Astros. Much better than a loss, eh?

23232

People who never do the wave, ever: Michael Saunders (.263 WPA)

People who start the wave themselves, with the bases loaded and the game on the line: Mike Zunino (-.135 WPA) (He would never do this)

That game could've ended up being so awful, and it wasn't. Michael Saunders races down the line for the win. Roenis Elias pitched like a back-end starter, but it was enough to allow put the team in position to eek out a victory—especially with Dominic Leone coming in and throwing gas.  There have been prettier wins, many of them, but that was fun nonetheless.

1. How close are you to thinking—or at least legitimately hoping—that James Jones is, like, for real?

2. What'd you think of Nick Franklin out there tonight?

3. Memorial Day is here, and some of us don't have any sweet plans. Help me out: your favorite day hike near Seattle?
