King Felix with a no-no through 4.

Not any more...just walked in a run and it's 2-1

Then Prince bloops in another and it's 2-2

The new slide rule just came up big in the Wash-Atl game. Markakis slid into Murphy and past the bag to try and break up the double play.

Mariners blow a 2-0 lead with a nightmarish 5th inning where they booted two EASY grounders (one was a tailor-made DP that would have ended the inning). King Felix walked three in the inning. The Rangers got their only hit of the game in that inning; a bloop single to left. 3-2 Ranger win.

 

Iannetta was 2-2, with a walk and two singles.

AJ Piershitty has misplayed like 4 balls behind the plate today, the last one on a perfect throw home that would have ended the game. Game is now tied 3-3 going into the bottom of the 9th

Excellent!

 

Only thing better would be if he misplayed the throw home and it hit Doug Eddings in the kisser!

If only there had been a way for both Seattle and Texas to lose this game. But I think if one of them had to win, I'm less unhappy it was Texas. I heard a stat being tossed around by the M's broadcasters that Texas was the fifth team to be held to one-hit on opening day since Bob Feller no-hit the White Sox in 1940.

I don't feel as emotionally invested in disliking Texas so far, because it's still early and it was Seattle. But I'm already at Category Five Mariner Loathing. I fully expect my Ranger antipathy to take full effect in a couple days, however.

Fan got kicked out of the Rays game for interfering with a ball that replay showed would have been a home run. And they kicked him out after the replay. And Tropicana is barely half full. The Rays stadium people are not smart. Old man should've been able to stay.

The illegal slide into second helped the Nats win today. The runner at first got called out after being called safe.

Good call though, by the rules.

.

He did slide before the bag and then slide over it as he was attempting to keep his hand on the bag.

Most players will not agree with the call. There's going to be a lot of controversy over this rule throughout the season.
