Hello and a pleasant Tuesday to you. The Seattle Mariners are taking on the Oriole birds of Baltimore, therefore I feel compelled to share one of the funniest, stupidest baseball .gifs of all time with you, dear reader.

Okay, I feel better now. The Mariners sure could use this win. And the next one. And the next one. And quite a few after that. Like roughly 70-80% of their games left, but I’m not a scientist. Sadly, the Mariners are 2-3 more injuries away from holding open tryouts for pitchers in Occidental Park and tonight we’ve got yet another dear hearted young man making his Mariners debut and first MLB appearance since September 23, 2016 against the Mariners while pitching for the Twins. What could go wrong?

Today's Lineups

BALTIMORE ORIOLES SEATTLE MARINERS
Tim Beckham - SS Jean Segura - SS
Manny Machado - 3B Guillermo Heredia - LF
Jonathan Schoop - 2B Robinson Cano - 2B
Adam Jones - CF Nelson Cruz - DH
Trey Mancini - LF Danny Valencia - 1B
Mark Trumbo - DH Mike Zunino - C
Chris Davis - 1B Leonys Martin - RF
Welington Castillo - C Danny Espinosa - 3B
Joey Rickard - RF Jarrod Dyson - CF
Wade Miley - LHP Andrew Albers - LHP

And oh yeah, it’s against this guy!

Here’s the official news on today’s roster moves:

I hope all who attend the Celebrating Women in Baseball pre-game event have an awesome time and I hope it’s the first of many events of it’s kind all across baseball that can continue the conversation on gender equality in baseball. Again, props to the Mariners organization for helping lead the charge.
