Seattle MARINERS (5-7, 1-2 road) at Los Angeles ANGELS of Anaheim (7-9, 6-2 home), 6:05p, CW-11 KSTW/MLB.tv
Horacio Ramirez (1-0) vs. Bartolo Colon (0-0)
The Angels snapped a six-game losing streak yesterday with a win over the Mariners. The Mariners had their losing streak extended as a result, making it four straight including the one game we'd all like to forget (the Felix game). What's disturbing about the last four losses is that all of them had the Mariners either getting into a big hole early, giving away a big inning, or at least facing a deficit of four runs or more at some point. Basically, at some point in each of the last four games, the Mariners have let the game get out of hand. The Mariners need to win a few games here and there to keep .500 within reach now that they're two games below it and look visibly worse off then they did last week.
I did the whole post without some one-liner about Bartolo Colon's weight or how much I still hate the Rafael Soriano trade. That took restraint.
