Man, the return of Kyle Lewis last night was something we all really needed. Yesterday was absolutely devastating in the real world, and finding ways to cope with these horrors is a daily struggle — for some of us it’s much more real than others.

Frankly it seems silly to worry about a baseball team when all of these things are happening around us. But for many a sense of normalcy and an escape is required. It’s OK to channel your energy into something that brings you comfort and joy at this time.

The return of Lewis delivered on that front. It felt like recuperating a piece of self. The small delight of getting to watch one of Seattle’s most exciting baseball players grace the field after so long without him. Let’s continue to cherish these moments.

In Mariners news...
