SO the Mariners beat the Royals 10-2 (Can we play the Royals everyday?). The big news yesterday was that third sacker Adrian Beltre had to come out of the game in the 4th inning with lower back stiffness. Beltre was quoted in both the Times and the PI as saying he would play today, but I don't like back problems one little bit.

On the other hand the M's are over 500 for the first time since the last game of the 2003 season (other than Opening Day of course)! That's cause to celebrate right? 10 more runs! Two extra base hits from Big Sexy to raise his slugging percentage to almost 650! Ichiro still hitting over 400! Two nice starts from Jamie!

See what I'm doing here? Trying to focus on the positive.
