Sorry, for the late start, but I'm having some internet issues, namely I can't stay connected for that long. Clearly it's operator error, but I'll see if I can try and get through this and keep posting.
Perhaps its a good thing I didn't have to write about the slop that Miguel Batista is tossing up to the plate. It's getting swatted around pretty hard.
Let's see the worst offensive team in all of baseball, now has a 4-0 lead after two innings. That's just great.
GAME UPDATES START HERE:
9:51 -- sorry for the delay, but I will say this, I don't think you should be doing the wave when you're losing by two runs. yet the fans at Safeco are still doing it.
8:52 --- How about these logos...
8:40 -- That's a great catch by Beltre. Gold glove caliber.....
8:25 -- Jeff Clement didn't have the hardest ball I've ever seen hit, but it got the run in.
From snydro: How is Dickey doing for Tacoma, Ryan?
Well, I didn't get to talk with him, but he's 2-4 with a 3.48 ERA. In 42 innings, he's allowed 42 hits, but one bad start in Tucson kind of skewed those numbers. He also has 25 strikeouts and just six walks. He's starting on Sunday in Tacoma against Doug Davis, who's coming back from Thyroid cancer and making a rehab start.
7:47 -- Joh-San!!!! Perhaps the Mariners' pitchers need to be more critical of his catching more often, because he seems to hit when they do.
