7/4: Open game thread


Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Well the Mariners won a big-boy baseball game last night, and now they are going to get right to it and try to win another this afternoon. They will do this by sending out a certain pitcher to the mound who has his own day named after him, and who is probably singularly responsible for giving this video 400,000 of its 500,000 views.

Said pitcher will try to get the job done against an A's lineup that um...something something...I....alright fine look, I'm trying to get outside to drink a beer and eat shitty processed meat scorched to oblivion on a metal grill, so rather than listen to me just go read Jake's preview and get learned.

The M's will be wearing those awful hats today, and I'm sure the A's will have lots of fun holiday themes activities in mind--hopefully strikeouts, ground ball outs, and a few dingers gifted to the M's off the hand of Kendall Graveman. I can think of literally no other way to be as patriotic on this, the celebration of this country's 2015 years of life.

Oh, and....NEWS!
