Watch Party sign up below!


Good morning, friends! We’re in our last week of the regular season AND we get a playoff game this Friday? Amazing.

Yesterday in my Game Preview I floated the idea of LL creating a Watch Party signup sheet that will match out-of-market folks with those in their area to watch the game on Friday with: that sign up sheet is here! After you sign up, look for an email on Wednesday matching you up with other ~single Mariners fans in your area.~ (Disclaimer: they may or may not be single but that’s not the point).

Looking forward to meeting those of you at a Boston/Providence Watch Party!

Yesterday’s results:


Angela asks:

Can someone explain to me why only the Mariners have a doubleheader scheduled for the last week of the season? Isn’t this manifest injustice?

Hi, Angela. As I’ll bet you know, the non-cosmic reason there are games at all this week is that the League had to reschedule each team’s first two series that got canceled-then-uncanceled during the lockout. The Mariners are the only team that had a four-game series in there that couldn’t get made up earlier.

As a practical matter, the Mariners don’t have enough pitchers in the rotation for this without messing with their playoff plans, but Scott may have something in the back. This is exactly why you carry a Chris Flexen.

But personally I’m not that worked up about this. For one thing, if this is the price to pay to have baseball at all this year, I’m more than happy to pay it. Imagine if we hadn’t gotten this season. This season. More importantly though, and I say this with the utmost respect, grievance isn’t a good look for winners, and the Mariners are winners now. It’s going to take some getting used to.

And hey, it’s not all bad, the Mariners are letting you attend both games with just one ticket. –Zach Mason
