Short game thread today because it's working time. Read Colin's excellent post on Taijuan's curve ball. Laugh at him when the Colorado air leads to 2 of them getting hit for home runs today. Root for more of Nelson Cruz being an unholy destroyer of worlds. Enjoy the continued resurrection of Jesus Montero (nope). Watch Franklin Gutierrez continue to play out an impossible comeback story.

The Mariners are a frustrating, backwards disappointment that are threatening to suck many jobs down their spiraling whirlpool of failure. However they are right now playing their most fun baseball of the year. Today they go for their 2nd 4 game win streak of the year.


Win, ya tiny and thus very overcooked french fries.
