Know you guys don't care but Iannetta (who threw many swears) was just intentionally beaned by former Mariner pitcher Tom Wilhelmsen (Ejected) who is now a Ranger .... benches briefly cleared as the M's have destroyed the Rangers in the 8th.

 

I care. Was a big fan of Iannetta and Freese when they were with the Angels. Wish the angels attempted to re-sign them.

Girardi protesting that Correa running on the grass made Betances throw wild to first. I agree with Dana DeMuth, if he's on the grass throw it at his back. It's your job to get the out, not protect the runner.

from ESPN:

 

Joe Girardi is playing Tuesday's game between the Yankees and Astros under protest. Girardi had a fit over the go-ahead run coming across in the eighth inning when reliever Dellin Betances shot putted a ball over first baseman Mark Teixeira's head on an infield single from Carlos Correa. Girardi argued that Correa was inside the baseline and should've been called out. The play is not reviewable. Correa was on the infield grass as he went up the line, but -- even after conferring with his fellow umpires -- Dana DeMuth refused to change his mind. The Astros are leading the Yankees, 3-2, in the eighth.

 

 

edit: 5-2 now, Astros in the 8th.

Bury the ball between the R's on his name tape and he's out. Problem solved.

Hey Cezero, today is the 39th anniversary of the M's debut game (against the Halos in the Kingdome).

Despite losing the first two games and being shut out in both games by Tanana and Ryan, the M's took two of the next 3 to close the season opening 5 game series.

It's not often that two teams play a FIVE game series to open a season.

Lenonys Martin HR for Seattle. 8 total home runs so far for Seattle and it's only the 2nd inning of game 3. They're up 3-0

Cano hits his 3rd HR in his 3rd game. Took him until June 22nd to hit 3 last season.

 

I think Andy Van Slyke's comments might have pissed him off in the offseason .... as well as the lingering injuries being gone.
