7/17/2022: Open Game Thread/Ty France is an All-Star

Win streaks are bigger in Texas

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: Let’s start with the big news. A gross injustice has been somewhat corrected:

Isabelle will have something more in depth later, but for now, let me just say, quite simply: Fuck yes.


Today, the win streak faces its toughest test: Chris Flexen on short rest, backed up by Tommy Milone. If they win today, it would be the longest winning streak heading into the break in MLB history.

Perhaps sensing that the pitching will need as much help as it can get, Raleigh is back in the lineup yet again. They’ll face off against Glenn Otto, part of the Rangers return for Joey Gallo last summer, in a trade that so far doesn’t look great for either side. Old friend Brad Miller gets his first start of the series too.

On a personal note, I’m planning to buy my first Mariners jersey. Please help me decide which one.


Which jersey should I buy?
