Because the game went so long, and also because it's Saturday and I like to actually go out and do things, I'm runing out the door and don't have time to write anything. If you're really missing the daily recap, feel free to go back and read any of the previous ten wrap-ups I've posted after these games against Oakland, since they've all pretty much been carbon copies of each other.

You could make the argument that winning the final games of this series would be enough to avoid that final nail in the 2006 season's coffin, so I guess that's as good a reason to watch as any. At least as far as the first three innings are concerned. After that, the Mariners'll probably be down by five, and you're on your own.
