Today we get to watch Ol' Man Wade Miley toss the sphere against Them Damn Rangers as the M's look to end a four-game skid. Ketel Marte gets the night off, with Luis Sardinas slotting in to spell him at short. As well, with the lefty throwing, Guti DH's while Dae-Ho Lee gets another start at first. It's the sort of game (cold: April) where Miley's game should be well suited to keep runs off the board and the M's need to start hitting with RISP.

Minus over-using Mike Montgomery and some fluky early bloops, the Mariners should have had a much more competitive game last night. Tonight we hope, for our collective sanity, that they can turn the tide of the poor homestand.

This evening I think I'll switch up my typical gametime drink and going with a nice Syrah. Should be wild.
