Hisashi Iwakuma Vs. Dallas Keuchel

Y'know. He's short.
Y'know. He's short.
Bob Levey

This has nothing to do with today's game (which is why it's so positive) but I am so thankful for Dave Cameron. At the risk of sounding like a suck up to my blogging betters Dave's writing was basically the trigger for when I started to ask questions about common wisdom in baseball, which was the trigger for me asking questions about common wisdom in life. Dave has a fun article on Fangraphs about Yasiel Puig. It's fun because Yasiel Puig is fun. It's amazing what one exciting, young player can do for an organization. I'm actually envious of Dodgers fans and they are arguably the biggest disappointment in baseball. One great hope, one superstar talent that makes the daily grind a daily blessing. This is what we want, Mariners.
