The one without any pitchers or outfielders

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Hello. As Mariners fans, you probably would not be surprised to hear that on April 29, the team would roll out an outfield without any of Kyle Lewis, Mitch Haniger, Jake Fraley, or Jarred Kelenic. We’re used to that sort of thing. But let me offer you a bonus: our pitchers’ heads are falling off!

Or arms. Whatever. Thank goodness we pulled off that plan of waiting for starters to come to us hat in hand! Really galaxy brain stuff. Maybe we can trade for Anthony Rizzo. And Kyle Lewis?

Sigh, ok, fine, whatever. And Mitch Haniger?

That has all led to.... this.

A special shoutout to Houston for never bothering to put their lineups anywhere that’s easy to share. Thanks, guys!

Putting new meaning to the term “getaway day”, I suppose. Best wishes and hopes to Yusei Kikuchi pulling 14 strikeouts out of his behind to keep Dylan Moore and Sam Haggerty from having to navigate Houston’s outfield extensively.
