5/25/22: Open Game Thread

Photo by Steph Chambers/ Kyle Lewis day #2 Another day, another baseball game. Today the Mariners play their lucky thirteenth game in a row, and look to take a series win against the Athletics. Let’s take a little look-see at the lineups: Kyle Lewis is still alive! Julio is batting cleanup! Is this excitement I feel? This lineup feels good, and if the last two games are any indication, we’re likely to see a lot of runs put on the board today. Especially if Robbie Ray can’t protect against the Big Inning™, which has plagued him this season. A day...

Checking in with the AL West: Houston and Anaheim slug it out at the top of the division

Checking in with the AL West: Houston and Anaheim slug it out at the top of the division

Photo by Kevork Djansezian/ Meanwhile, Texas, Seattle, and Oakland fight over who holds up the ladder in the cellar Last week, we examined how the AL West was starting to become a two-team race, with Houston and the Angels at the top, a significant gulf, and then the bottom three teams. After a week of underperformance, it’s not surprising that gulf has become a veritable Mariana Trench.

Yesterday was absolutely devastating in the real world, and finding ways to cope with these horrors is a daily struggle — for some of us it’s much more real than others.

It’s OK to channel your energy into something that brings you comfort and joy at this time. The...

Mariners lose to the A’s, 7-5, which is fine, actually

it’s just a question of focus | Photo by Steph Chambers/ How a Parking Lot Fender-Bender Helped Me Learn to Love the 2022 Mariners The other day I was in a small fender bender with another car at the gas station. I was immediately frustrated; I had been distracted in the moment by forces beyond my control, didn’t do a full re-sweep behind me after the distraction, and bumped into a car that had, unbeknownst to me, drawn up into my blind spot in the interim, waiting for a spot at one of the pumps to open. Immediately, I was livid; it was the latest frustration in...
