Texas RANGERS (5-6, 1-4 road) at Seattle MARINERS (4-3, 3-2 home), 1:05p, CW-11 KSTW/MLB.tv
Brandon McCarthy (1-1) vs. Horacio Ramirez (0-0)
Hey, look! The Mariners start Sunday atop the AL West division by a half-game over the 6-6 Angels. Sure, if the Mariners had played the same number of games as everyone else in the division, it'd probably be a lot different, but we'll take this. A win today would give the Mariners two series wins in three series and it'd put them two games above .500 for the first time since they were 2-0 earlier this season after winning their first two games against Oakland. Not long ago, I know.
Also, it'll be the first start in the books for Horacio Ramirez. Let's hope he does better in the environs in Seattle than he "did" (again, not in the books) in the snow in Cleveland. He should, right? After all, what would Bill Bavasi look like if he traded Rafael Soriano for this Ramirez guy and Ramirez did horrible? Okay, I'm being sarcastic.
Get your taxes done if you haven't already. And yes, the numbers post will be updated to reflect the observance of the efforts of a certain Mister Robinson.
