Rangers at Mariners for the second to last time, maybe ever? You don’t know.

The leaves are turning bright colors and while the sun has been out lately, you know what’s right about the corner.....

(Obligatory quoting of this passage)

“It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops. Today, October 2, a Sunday of rain and broken branches and leaf-clogged drains and slick streets, it stopped, and summer was gone.”

Sigh.

Well, we’ve got two more of these bad boys to go still. Have a seat, sip a beverage of your choice, and let baseball while away the hours.

I have no idea what’s going on with Jean Segura getting benched last night and the subsequent quotes and frankly I don’t give a shit.
