And the Wizards’ wands are busted: the Seattle Mariners are a bad team. The only success they have had of late was against the lowly Padres when they strung back-to-back wins together for the only time in their last 33 games. The club from the Emerald City is last in the league in OBP. They have no starter that possesses a winning record, and have only one starter with an ERA+ over 100 in Felix Hernandez, whose record is 2 and 4. King Felix is on the mound tonight while Boston sends Bartolo Colon, who had a serviceable debut for Boston against KC his last time out.
The Sox are glad to be out of Oaktown, but continue a left-coast trip which means baseball after hours for you east-coast fans. Lineups to follow, comment away.
