Pineiro (4-3, 4.59) Saarloos (1-1, 5.63)
2006 Kirk Saarloos is what you get when you take a groundball pitcher with a bad K/BB and take away the groundballs. There's really no excuse for the Mariners to not jump all over him, but we all know how that usually goes, so, whatever. It'd be nice if Joel didn't suck, but I'm going to be honest with you - I'm kind of just trying to hang on as best I can until the team makes some changes and the games become somewhat interesting again.
LET'S GO MARINERS!
