A hot dog that’s been on the rollers all day at a Love’s Travel Stop: the mosquito brain who ran on the field while the Mariners were up to bat wearing a...White Sox jersey? No, Tony, they were here last week.
Game thread comment of the day:
People must be out and about because I felt like there should have been like, seventeen game threads for this game, and also, this comment should have been turned teal immediately:
If you did miss the game, make sure to revisit the threads, or watch a replay, or something, because wowza.
On this day in Ichiro, 2005:
Ichiro goes 4-for-5 with a stolen base, and probably should have had two stolen bases (Mariners manager Mike Hargrove was ejected arguing the call), but the one out he made was striking out to end the game, a 5-3 Mariners loss, which probably still annoys him to this day.
