Seattle is under the gun. Losers of nine in a row, they come to Yankee Stadium two games out of the wild card race. After three games in the Bronx, they get a day off and then head to Detroit, who are three games out of the wc. The Bombers can go a long ways towards cementing their shot at the post season by kicking the Mariners when they are down, and go a long way towards looking more like a playoff team with a series victory than the team that could only muster one win in three against the Fish.
Seattle holds the season series lead, four games to three. It’s the Rocket against King Felix on this Labor Day afternoon game. Lineups in the extended, comment away.
