I think there's a lot I'm never going to know or understand about Hargrove's resignation, but for all the shit I've given him, I wasn't looking for this, and I wish him all the best. We'll see how the players respond, but down in Tacoma Julio Mateo was unavailable for comment, as he fell to the ground and wept uncontrollably.

Win it for Grover? Sure, that works. It's kind of weird to be playing one last game with Hargrove at the helm after he's already announced his resignation, but if ever there was a day for the guy to flip out and manage like a crazy idiot, this is it. Hello, five consecutive squeeze bunts.

Good luck, Mike Hargrove. And good luck, John McLaren. Don't suck.
