I honestly think that France is finally feeling healthy, and that they may have brought him back too soon. He's too good of a hitter to go on that long of a slump. He's back though, and that's HUGE for this team. And as usual, Haniger is clutch.
That was fun. I couldn't care less who the team is playing, just pile up those W's. Control you own fate.
Hopefully Marco stays strong, he's been pretty solid lately. Now Kirby? That was one hell of a draft pick. His control is incredible for a young pitcher.

Marco should be able to handle his own today against this weak Tigers team. If he doesn't, we have a bullpen that has had two days of rest. We are due for a sweep against one of these weak teams.

For anyone who didn't have prior familiarity with Kody Clemens' style of pitching, like me, that was some, ahem, shocking speed! When he threw the first couple of pitches at the top of the ninth, I thought maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me.

Has a better ERA than his dad, but a few strikes out behind him.

Marco, and everyone else has been pitching well as of late without going 7+ innings. Hope he continues it today.

That was soooo bizarre! 54mph? Nice big looping, softball style pitches. I thought every Mariner was going to hit a home run. Maybe it's a deceiving pitch? Players have no idea how to "see" a ball that slow and with that much arc?
