Well, good morning. Congratulations, it’s Saturday. It’s also September now. Holy shit.

I hope you rested well because today the season is more or less on the line with James Paxton on the mound. It’s in Oakland, which is not ideal, but other than that, it’s about as good of a scenario as could be wished for at this point in the season. The Mariners put up one heck of a rally last night despite falling short, so I can only hope that the team keeps that fighting spirit going through the rest of the series and beyond. If not, hey, it’s just baseball (cries into keyboard).
