9/16: Open Game Thread

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the Mariners are bringing together the socially awkward for a pre-game extravaganza, but I will not be in attendance as a form of protest, because I cannot figure out why the heck I was not invited to participate as a Media Celebrity. There's a baseball game after, and we know who the heck we want to win: the Seattle Mariners.

Felix Hernandez is going to step on the mound, and the Mariners must hope his changeup is moving like a bat out of heck, otherwise the Astros are going to have a field day. Houston is starting Collin McHugh, who dragged the Mariners boomsticks down to heck and burned them during his last start in Safeco.

Elsewhere, the Blue Jays are in the heckhole known as Los Angeles, the Tigers are in Cleveland, and the Orioles are hosting the Rays.
