Turning our brown eyes blue: Kyle Seager, -.167 WPA

Moment of the game: If you don’t count me not kicking my foot through the TV after I heard a brand of low-calorie alcoholic spritzers using Lizzo’s “Juice” in a commercial (I am all for Queen Lizzo getting paid but knowing what Lizzo is About vs. what this commercial seems to be About is somewhat infuriating), Kikuchi’s moment coming off after one of his best performances as a Mariner is probably it:

Kikuchi is normally so reserved, it was great to see him amped up. I just want the best for him and for him to be happy.
