Carlos Triunfel Starts at SS Open Oh No Thread

New, 450 comments

Carlos Triunfel is starting at short stop and batting ninth for the Mariners. Jurickson Profar is starting at second base and batting ninth for the Rangers. Aw man, I wish those two were equivalent.

The Rangers are not starting Adrian Beltre nor Josh Hamilton. And still their lineup kicks the Mariners' rump. It kicks it all day long, if it wanted to, but it doesn't because there's only so much joy you can get out of physically abusing wounded animals.
