Mike Montgomery Vs. Hector Santiago

Here we go with Lloyd getting into the catnip and making a wonky lineup playing platoon advantages. I like it but I'm a fan of new things. Chris Taylor leading off? Sure! Jesus Montero playing 1B? Awesome! Mariners trying to sneak a 10th defender on the field without anyone noticing? All for it!

Tonight it's Mike Montgomery versus Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, Erik Aybar and a bunch of dudes I don't want on my baseball team. Montgomery is due to regress, yes. Hector Santiago is due to regress, yes. Albert Pujols should regress, maybe? Mike Trout is due to regress in 2024. Sigh.

I will note that the Mariners are averaging over 12 hits on this homestand. That has largely been against bad starting pitching yes but hey this team very recently was shutdown by Shawn Marcum. As the old saying goes: Fans of piss poor offensive baseball teams shouldn't make a wanking motion over smacking around bad pitching.

The Mariners are going to win a baseball game tonight, maybe. Jesus Montero is making his first start in the major leagues in 2015, definitely. Jesus Montero fact: The pitcher Jesus Montero has hit the most home runs off of in his career is Jared Weaver with 4. This is a fun fact and you have enjoyed it.

Win the baseball game ya hosers.
