7/17: Open game thread

Mike Montgomery Vs. Masahiro Tanaka

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Well that was a long break. Baseball is back and with it the joy of shuffling around bullpen arms:

The broken form of what used to be Danny Farquhar will be sent back down to Tacoma to make room for Wilhelmsen's return.

We are not going to waste extra words on this game thread previewing the 2nd half. That has been written about. Yankee Stadium is a dumb and stupid stadium that emphasizes many of baseball and America's worst attributes. The Yankees are annoying. The Mariners have been and are often annoying themselves. Who will be most annoying this weekend? Seattle has methodically gone through all margin for error. The time is for winning is now. Actually it was three months ago but, y'know.

Just win, ya adorable little sea urchins.
