6/24: Open Game Thread

Mariners/Padres, take two. There's a reasonable chance that I get overwhemled by my violent hatred of our bitter rivals and kill a guy at the stadium tonight.

First Pitch: 7:05pm PDT



Ichiro RF                   Roberts CF
Winn CF                     Blum 2B
Beltre 3B                   Klesko LF
Sexson 1B                   Giles RF
Ibanez LF                   Fick C
Boone 2B                    Burroughs 3B
Morse SS                    Nady 1B
Borders C                   Greene SS
Meche P                     May P

----------                  ----------

Meche (7-4, 4.64)           May (1-1, 4.76)

Big Mike Morse fan? Get ready for a lot more of him. Which is good for two reasons: one, it gives him more experience as a shortstop at the Major League level, and two, it allows him to regress to his actual level of performance, which should keep the Mariners from doing something stupid like guaranteeing him the job in 2006. Anyhoo, Darrell May's a homer-prone flyball lefty in the perfect pitching environment, and Richie Sexson's out for tonight's game, so it's entirely possible that the Mariners fail to take advantage of May's biggest weakness. As for Meche, if you blend his run-prevention from June 14th and his K/BB from June 19th, you've got yourself a damn good pitcher. Hope for that.
