There is a rumble we are starting to hear around my office. A quiet hum. I am not talking about the construction that has been going on tirelessly in the office above me, or even the BNSF Trains across the street. No, my friends, that sound you hear is the sound of 26,000 people lining up for a toy. It's bobblehead day.

Debatably, more important than the bobbleheads would be that we are in the midst of a Mariners Matinee as the Seattle Mariners square off against the originators of the strange uniform, the Miami Marlins. In a showdown of M's.

This afternoon, approximately 13,000 people will stick around to see Felix Hernandez take on Edinson Volquez. Felix is coming off a very nice start this past Friday against the Rangers. He hasn't given up a walk yet. Hopefully you don't believe in a jinx. If you do, there's nothing I can do or say to change your mind. You seem set in your ways. That's not a bad thing though, bud.

Speaking of buds, congratulations to friend of the site, Nathan Bishop on his brand new gig.
