Cancel your plans, stay at home, lock your doors, it's Mariners baseball night. Tonight will be an international affair between the Seattle Mariners and the Toronto Blue Jays. Both of these teams are celebrating their 40th anniversary. So naturally, they are looking at acquiring a hot rod and taking some night classes in something that they've always wanted to do.

Tonight the Mariners ask Sam Gaviglio nicely to go to the pitchers mound and throw a baseball at a very potent lineup. The last time the Mariners played the Blue Jays, they didn't have Troy Tulowitzki or Josh Donaldson. Well, guess what, hotshot, they're back and they are mad that they didn't participate when the Blue Jays swept the Mariners earlier this year. If you are going to the game tonight and you are sitting in left field, I am going to recommend you wear a thoroughly cleaned nacho helmet.

These were definitely two different teams when they faced each other in May. A lot can change in a month. If you don't believe me, I suggest you look within.
