TuesdoLinks: Age against The Machine

Albert Pujols brings the fireworks to cap off a great Jered Weaver start and overcome a rare Jose Alvarez blowup. Angels over Padres 4-3. Once upon a time, opposing pitchers would make the mistake of throwing in tight at Vlad Guerrero, pissing him off and watching Vladdie belting a home run as a consequence. In modern times, pitchers are forced into the Hobson's choice of facing the best player of our generation, or intentionally walking him so that you can face the best hitter of our generation, thereby pissing off said best hitter of our generation: Wouldn't it be great if this sort of...

Rays 1, Mariners 4: Sloppy Fielding, No Bats Lead To Loss To M's

The offense again went quiet as uncharacteristic errors doom Rays. For the second straight game the Rays were virtually doomed from the first inning, and for the third straight game the offense was nowhere to be found. Seattle leadoff man Seth Smith reached base after Tim Beckham flubbed an easy ground ball that he didn't have to move an inch to field. Rays' starter Jake Odorizzi followed that up by walking Brad Miller on four pitchers and giving up back-to-back singles to Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz, putting the Rays in a 2-0 hole before nary an out was recorded. Odorizzi would settle...

Mariners crawl back towards .500, beat Rays 4-1

Roenis Elias continues to impress and Robinson Cano drives in a pair. Maybe they won't just flip a switch. Many people envisioned the Mariners would be one of the better teams in baseball, and some of us still hold out hope that they'll turn into the team they were supposed to be—but maybe, if it happens, the change won't be sudden. We'd all like to see an extended hot stretch, a string of games where the lineup, rotation and bullpen perform to their perceived talent levels—one of those "they've won 12 of 14!" streaks that produces the Here Come the Mariners headlines. Maybe it comes...
