MLB: Milwaukee Brewers-Media Day
and now his watch is ended
Allan Henry-USA TODAY Sports

Good evening and happy Tuesday. Here is your jam for today’s Spring Training game. It’s fairly obvious, but you know what? It fucking RIPS. I dare you to be in a bad mood after listening to this shit.

That’s right boys and girls, the very good baseball players from República Dominicana are back in town. The town of Peoria, Arizona, to be exact. Why? Because they also play for your Seattle Mariners and you should appreciate that fact. Today they play another practice game against the Greyjoys of MLB, the Oakland Athletics. Praying to the drowned gods has gotten them far in the past, but it carried a hefty price. One could say they’ve paid the iron price. One could also say Oakland-Alameda County Colosseum is a lot like a shitty (literally), barren island where everyone is always miserable and jealous. Billy Beane probably definitely has a “WE DO NOT SOW” tattoo somewhere on his persons. Anyways, here’s your lineups.

So we get a live and in color preview of the 2017 Seattle Mariners “A” lineup versus righties, which I must say is quite the handsome lineup. Go Mariners.

Before that game starts, the WBC semifinal kicks off at 6 PM PDT with Team USA taking on Samurai Japan for the right to move on to the final versus Edwin Diaz (One inning only!) and Team Puerto Rico. Should be an awesome game seeing as Japan has basically owned the WBC since it started and is looking to get back on top after losing to the DR last time around. Team USA has finally gotten its shit together this fourth time around and actually put together a pretty good team. Hey nice job, America. Nice of you to show up for once. No no, it’s cool you skipped out, Mike Trout. Adam Jones covered for your ass.

much has already been said about this photo, but i still cannot get over curly haired Belle & Sebastian fan on the left. he didn’t react to the catch because he was consumed with ennui.

Lineups!
