ANOTHER one run loss? ANOTHER pitching performance flushed down the toilet?
MORE runners left on base?
Coco Crisp got on base 5 times. FIVE TIMES! And scored zero runs. I didn’t think that was even possible.
So despite the fact that the Seattle Mariners have done a complete and utter nose dive in the last week or so, they remain mathematically in the race. So let’s make this simple, shall we?
Angels beat the Mariners ONCE.
A’s beat the Rangers ONCE.
Those two things happen and the A’s have Jon Lester pitching the Wild Card Game. And for everyone’s sake, do it tonight!
Meanwhile the Giants clinch in an empty stadium in Cincinnati with a Brewers loss… and found a way to have a wild weird game at AT&T.
I guess I should update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
GIANTS DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
The playoff bound Giants blew an early 6-0 lead to the limp Padres bats. But Pablo Sandoval and company came back to win, 9-8. DODGED BULLET
58 Dodged Bullets 52 Teeth Grinders
A’S DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
Coco Crisp gets on base 5 times and never scores. The A’s lose a walk off 2-1 heart breaker to Texas. TEETH GRINDER
55 Dodged Bullets 60 Teeth Grinders
RED SOX DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
Dodged Bullets 64 Teeth Grinders 77
I do NOT want to see a Mariners A’s play in game for the play in game!
