It's time for another "Game thread used to catch you up on news" game thread. Here we go:
Nuno will start on Friday. Taijuan Walker won't pitch again this season— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) September 24, 2015
Or, put another, far more painful way:
Taijuan Walker "most likely done"'for season. Would have started tomorrow if Mariners had won last night.— Greg Johns (@GregJohnsMLB) September 24, 2015
So that's fun. How about the state of the bullpen?
Wilhelmsen not available tonight, Smith might be out too.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) September 24, 2015
Well ok. I guess the only thing left to do then is to win tonight, clinch the series, claim Grass Creek, and then launch an earth-shattering offensive against the entire AL West, sans Texas. Next year, Rangers. Next year.
Win, ya somehow still lovable louts.
