It’s Friday. You made it. Congrats, friend. Your reward is the first game of the series that may or may not eliminate the Mariners from contention. All the of the rest of the series fall under that category. Death or glory time.

Mike Leake and his fabulous hair makes their second start for the Mariners. Lineups!

Today's Lineups

Brandon Phillips - 2B Jean Segura - SS
Mike Trout - CF Yonder Alonso - 1B
Justin Upton - LF Robinson Cano - 2B
Albert Pujols - DH Nelson Cruz - DH
Kole Calhoun - RF Kyle Seager - 3B
Andrelton Simmons - SS Mitch Haniger - RF
Luis Valbuena - 3B Mike Zunino - C
C.J. Cron - 1B Ben Gamel - LF
Martin Maldonado - C Guillermo Heredia - CF
Ricky Nolasco - RHP Mike Leake - RHP

Well, look at that, new Angels Brandon Phillips and Justin Upton. Man, what an eminently hate-able lineup. Fuck all of these clowns into space.

Daniel has zero chill.

Your battle/mourning tune:

I had no idea Robert Smith was a Mariners fan. Turns out he was, like us, just waiting for the death blow.
