I'm on recap duty tonight, and I don't want to deprive myself of material, so I'll keep this short and sweet. (Like Jesus Sucre!) The Rangers throttled the Mariners' pitching, to the tune of thirteen hits and twenty-one total bases. The Mariners did much worse, only mustering... fourteen hits and nineteen total bases.

Wait, what?

Questions!

1) Jesus Sucre's major league debut featured probably the worst call of the season - the "double play". It's pretty rare to see a player called out at first when the first baseman never actually gets the ball. What's the worst call you've ever seen?

2) What is the best possible name for a baseball player?

3) If you were creating your own pitcher to play for the Mariners, what four pitches would you have him throw? Why?
