5/12/18: Open Game Thread (Game 1)

Let’s try this again

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Detroit Tigers
yes but let’s definitely worry about Mike Clevinger’s shoes and minor leaguers smoking pot

It’s still crummy weather in Detroit but apparently there’s a tiny little break in the rain so let’s baseball and hope no one gets hurt.


Of note: Zunino will catch Marco, and Freitas will catch Félix in Game 2, so Zunino will be ready to go again tomorrow for Paxton. That’s not great news for Félix, who obviously has a strong relationship with Zunino, but Z is the best catcher on staff to handle Pax. In conclusion, doubleheaders are stupid, and teams that play in inclement weather who don’t have roofs should have to forfeit home games rather than inconvenience other teams. Hot takes over here,I know.

For real, though. Just please no one get hurt.

Gametime: 1:10 p.m. PT

Available: all the same places it was yesterday.

12:20 p.m. PT UPDATE: arghhhhhhh
