Game thread: Mariners at Angels — September 17, 2014

Once upon a time, the Mariners won a game 13-2 over the Angels and all was right in Fanland. The win placed them within one game of the second wild card of the Kansas City Royals. The sun was shining ( a little too much here in Anaheim), the birds were chirping, optimism could be felt and a unicorn was seen frolicking in the outfield of a quiet Safeco Field. And then manager Lloyd McClendon started Justin Smoak at first base over Logan Morrison and all hell broke loose, armageddon ensued and the baseball world that we know was forever scarred.

Hyperbole? Yes. Snark? Laying it on pretty thick. Sense of humor? Definitely needed.

But really, it’s September. It’s baseball. It’s September baseball you actually care about.

So come join the conversation. Because it’s Wednesday and there is nothing better to do on Wednesday night than talk some baseball!
