Game preview:

KANSAS CITY -- Jim Riggleman is not a numbers man.

If you asked him about a goal in terms of wins at the beginning of the season, he probably wouldn't want to give it to you. So as the Mariners embark on their first series after the All-Star break, it's no surprise that Riggleman doesn't want to talk about concrete goals for his team.

"I don't know what a realistic goal is," he said. "For me the goal is to just try and win every game. You've got the competitive juices flowing and you're trying to win that game."

Repeat:

"I don't know what a realistic goal is," he said. "For me the goal is to just try and win every game. You've got the competitive juices flowing and you're trying to win that game."

Let's break this down:

"I don't know what a realistic goal is," he said.

"For me the goal is to just try and win every game.

So:

"I don't know what a realistic goal is," he said.

He's right. He doesn't.

Also I hear some dude is pitching for us tonight.
