st22 | OK, so, what a difference a (nearly get-a-way) day makes

Mariners 8 | White Sox 13

As great as things went yesterday – quite the opposite today…

Felix said he’s fine and he’s ready, that the WS were just hitting everything. I’ll say – to the tune of 8 runs (7 earned) on 10 hits in 5 innings.  And, the bullpen did not provide any relief (combined to allow another 5 runs on 6 hits).

So, was it…

– the typical last start of the spring? (maybe)

– the unusual, “hey, I’m going to Japan tomorrow!” ? (possible)

– just one of those days (likely)

– an injury (nah…)

– the mighty WS extraordinary talent (double nah)

Despite the fact that most of the hitting came too little, too late, with unknowns on the mound – there were some notables….

– Liddi’s had 3 RBI (oh, by the way – he’s leading the team in nearly every offensive category this spring)

– Montero with another RBI (one of the few that he has over Liddi)

– Figgy walked twice (tied with Smoak for the team lead)


Leaving, on a jet plane (the M’s, that is – wish I were too!!! )
