No time, no desire, no recap. Tonight included, Chan Ho Park has a 2.45 career ERA against Seattle in nine starts (5-2), and Gil Meche now owns the lowest ERA for any Mariner starter at 4.65. This team is currently closer to being the worst team in baseball than they are second place in the division.
Everyone deserves some time off, and as long as the Mariners are taking theirs, I'll take mine. Back tomorrow afternoon, as Joel Pineiro takes on a crappy southpaw rookie. At least we can look forward to a Spiezio pinch-hit appearance.
