Apparently, they don’t get cable TV in Seattle. How else can you explain the complete ignorance shown by the Seattle Mariners who were foolish enough to pitch to the Cactus League MVP with the game on the line yesterday?
With the Mariners nursing a 1-0 lead in the seventh, they pitched to Hank White with a runner at second and he singled Angel Echeverria in to tie the game.
Two innings later, with the score tied at two, they foolishly let Dan Riechert pitch to Hank with the bases empty.
Hank was sleepy, and wanted to end the Cactus League season right there, so he jacked one over the left field wall and sent the crowd home happy.
Actually, since the game was in Vegas, Hank sent them back to the casinos where they could lose next month’s house payment. But you know what we meant.
