This is the latest in a season the Mariners have been alone in first place since August 24th, 2003. This being the middle of April, it hardly means anything by itself, but you always gotta start somewhere.
Anyway, since this is also one of the busiest week(end)s I've had in a long long time, I really can't afford to sit here and write about the game for a few hours. The site's a high priority, but not as high as graduating. I'll try to get some bullet point observations posted sometime if I can, but I can't make any promises.
