Chris Young vs. J.A. Happ

The Mariners go for the series win tonight against the chirping birds. Last night went bad for the birds and you can read about that here and also here or you can read here but there's also here.

I'm not one to try and shit on people's good feelings but tonight's game is going to feel like a let down. Don't let it. Don't let it or them or me let it down for you. Chris Young - Interesting. The lineup - not really an ugh in there. The opponent - Munenori Kawasaki. An enjoyable experience is within your grasp. But the Mariners might lose. It's okay. This game is only important for the sweep. Sweeps are fun. But series wins are good too. And they aren't going to win 40 games in a row. We can do this. Win or lose, let's just go out there and have fun.

Please wash your hands and tune up your inside voice before entering the below thread. Thank you, and enjoy the show.
