Mariners Moose Tracks, 7/21/18: Manny Machado, Mike Zunino, and Danny Farquhar

Birthday Links.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Milwaukee Brewers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

I’m going to be that guy. Happy birthday to myself. 22 years on this planet is a long time, and it feels like I’ve gone my whole life basically without seeing a Mariners post season game. Sure, I did in 2001. I was five that season, though, and do not remember much from that year. This is our year, Mariners. Do it for the people! Way to start the second half of the year right!
