Last night was our turn to feast on a main dish of grand slam, with a tasty side of Mariner clown show. Today we get Price, and a decent shot at a two-game winning streak. He might need to go 10 though.
The win last night went to everyone’s head, and Brad got all crazy and put McCann in against a right-handed pitcher for today. What the heck, if he can do that, I can push my luck with the lucky Game Post Picture, right?
Today’s trade rumors: Cubs are interested in Price (who wouldn’t be?), the Angels are interested in Cespedes (who wouldn’t be?), the Giants are wanting Rajai Davis (hmm), and the Twins are considering Alex Avila (sell! sell!).
Today’s One-Game-Winning Streak Lineup:
- Ian Kinsler, 2B
- Yoenis Cespedes, LF
- Victor Martinez, DH
- JD Martinez, RF
- Nick Castellanos, 3B
- Marc Krauss, 1B
- James McCann, C
- Jose Iglesias, SS
- Anthony Gose, CF
Brad Ausmus wonders “what was I thinking, batting Krauss 5th?” Then he takes a deep breath, and moved him down to…6th.
