Leave it to the Mariners to lose, even on a day off. At least this time it’s addition by subtraction.
Yes, everyone’s favorite Mike Martz look-alike, John McLaren, was finally put out of his misery and fired Thursday morning during a travel day for the Tacoma Rainers’ Major League affiliate.
I only hope interim GM Lee Pelekoudas took him out behind the shed and shot McLaren himself.
Following yet another loss, this time 5-2 to the Marlines, I’m sure members of the Tacoma Rainers’ Major League affiliate probably wanted to be put out of their misery.
I don’t blame them. I want to be put out of my misery and I just watch the team.
The American dollar is currently worth just 98 cents in Canada, using a four percent cash rate. You may or may not know what that means (I sure don’t) but all you need to understand is that the American dollar is worth less across the border.
Thankfully, for the Tacoma Rainers Major League affiliate, the same can’t necessarily be said about American baseball teams.
The Tacoma Rainers’ Major League affiliate has managed to make this season as entertaining as a Wile Coyote cartoon. Each day we’re all wondering just how this team is going to lose in the end. Will they smash into a painted wall? Or have an anvil fall on their collective heads? No, this team is more like every instance Mr. Coyote runs off a cliff for several moments, only to realize he has no more ground left to stand on.
That is what it has felt like keeping track of the Tacoma Rainers’ Major League affiliate. Every game we just watch and wait for the team to plummet.
I felt a little under the weather over the weekend so I decided to take a mental break, recharge my batteries and come back to hit the ground running. While I was gone the Mariners played .500 baseball, going 2-2 in my absence. Hmmmmm. Maybe I should take more breaks.
Regardless, after missing out on a few games I feel right at home again following a 7-5 loss to the Tigers Sunday afternoon. Surprisingly, Miguel Bautista was serviceable for the second straight game and he didn’t pick up the loss. Not surprisingly was that J.J. Putz did earn a loss. Well, not surprising for him this season.
