Goddamn it! Time for the fucking Mariners to fire John "the Asshole who takes out his ace-throwin-a-97-pitch-8-inning-shutout" McDouchebag. Seriously? Who the fuck takes out their ace throwing a shutout when their closer is on the DL? He WANTS to lose.

To be fair, I think pulling Felix in an early-season ballgame is justifiable because of his history of injury.

But yeah, that Seattle bullpen does blow right now.

Seattle bullpen: 13 runs in 14.2 innings.

Felix Hernandez got injured last season not because of pitch counts--it was because he was holding the ball incorrectly on his curveball, and that was stressing his elbow. One injury, which has been fixed. At the rate Hernandez was going, he'd have thrown less than 110 pitches.

Not that I've ever been aware of (and I keep track of the Mariners very closely). I know two years ago (the 2006 season) he had problems with being out of shape/obescity. But he's taken to working out in the off-season.

Not that anybody here cares about the Reds, but Edwin Encarnacion is sooo not clutch.

Not as bad as Felix. 8 shutout innings. No decision. Team loses.

Ben Sheets--complete game shutout

Seriously, everyone in the NL should be salivating when looking at the days on the calendar they play the Giants.

Big Grin Last year's Twins had more offense than what the Mets showed today

There is more to the story too....Schmeg and I were watching the game. Encarnacion earlier had an opportunity to prevent a run with a simple throw to home. He threw it away and allowed all of the runners to advance. The announcers were dogging him the whole game. GREAT piece of irony.

This afternoon, I went to the first of about 11 Reds home games (I live in a city without MLB). Looking forward to Sundays in Cincy.

Watching this game, I agree wholeheartedly.
