Ahem, queue the Boyz II Men.
No, it’s not the end of the season, but it is the end of this fucking dreadful 12 game, 3-week-spanning road trip throughout the shitty East Coast. The road trip that robbed us fans of watching the Mariners in person at Safeco during some of the best weather of the summer. Go fuck yourselves, MLB schedulers. Yes, I am mad online.
After getting ONE HIT last night by Dylan “No relation to the serial killer, I swear!” Bundy, the Mariners hope to squeak out a win to at least end the trip on a happy note.
Oh, and in case you missed it, Jerry may or may not have made a deal this morning on a treadmill. Well, he did make a deal for Mike Leake, the treadmill part is speculation by Brad Adam and his hair.
Saw Jerry in hotel gym this morning. Maybe traded for Leake while on treadmill. Impressive. Signed thru 2020. Over 50 million owed.— Brad Adam (@RealBradAdam) August 30, 2017
But here is the most important thing about Mike Leake right now and it also tells the sad, sad story of the 2017 Seattle Mariners:
Mike Leake is suddenly the M's 2nd best pitcher by fWAR (1.9) trailing only James Paxton (4.2)— kyle rancourt (@KyleRancourt) August 30, 2017
Thank you, Mr. Rancourt, for looking that up.

Segura is taking a day off, it appears. I wish they could all take like 3 days off at a spa, talking about their feelings and their hopes and dreams. But, nope, one day off tomorrow and then back at it in Seattle.
Until then, keep the devil down in the hole, boys.
