That was a pretty fun homestand, wasn't it? Home opener, sweeping the Rangers, Ichiro! hitting a dinger and catching feelings, winning some games, etc. Well, the MLB schedulers still hate the Mariners' guts so back on the road they go. To Oakland. For 4 games. Great.
The good new is, however, is that it's JAMES PAXTON DAY, BUB. The Nasty Canadian looks to keep his ERA spotless tonight against the Island of Misfit toys that makes up the Oakland lineup. So go get 'em, James. We stand on guard for thee.
