Allow me to get this out of the way first.
Back to baseball!
The Mariners roll out Endy Chavez at leadoff tonight, because any time you can make a terrible hitter get more plate appearances than anyone else, you have to do it. Jesus Montero also gets the start against a right-handed pitcher, and it's fingers crossed that tonight's offensive output is a lot better than it looks.
Chris Young goes against Tyson Ross tonight. Young has been excellent at home, but Ross has been good everywhere, clearly better at Petco but still effective on the road. Tonight doesn't set up like a lot of runs will be scored, so hopefully the USA/Ghana match got you in the mood for 2-1 finishes.
