I am really pissed off! What the hell was Mike Hargrove thinking, trotting out Matt Thornton in the 6th inning last night? Even a casual fan knows better than to put Thornton into a close game! We had a 4-2 lead at the time, and I still believe the game was winnable. If Thornton doesn’t enter the game and give up the three run dinger on his third pitch, a hanging slider, it’s still close. It’s time to initiate FireMikeHargrove.com
I have seen enough!

Felix Hernandez made his home debut last night, and it was everything a fan could have wished! 8 innings, 5 scattered hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, and 6 strikeouts: it was amazing! Conor & I saw him 2 years ago in Everett, and again last year in Tacoma, but I honestly didn't expect him to be as dominating as he was last night. You should have been there! Long live the King!

Last night was also Pacific Rim Baseball Night, and we sat behind a large group of visiting Japanese teenage girls, obviously ga-ga over Ichiro. I wonder if anyone in the Mariners' organization noticed that yesterday was also the 60th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. A rather somber affair, and an interesting way to celebrate it.
