8/15/2012 - The Perfect King

I've been going to baseball games for a long time, but yesterday is the first time I have seen a perfect game in person.  It was a perfect day in Seattle - sunny and temps in the 80's - and King Felix dominated the Rays.  Here's a link to every out recorded - courtesy of Dave Cameron and MLBTV.

*Update - got to include this piece from Larry Stone, my favorite Seattle sports writer.  Be sure to check out the reaction from the Jackson Generals players when the perfecto was complete.  Very cool.

After The (non-waiver) Trade Deadline

Well, truth be told I'm:

  • Glad that Jason Vargas is still a Mariner
  • Pissed that Chone Figgins is still a Mariner
Hoping that the club will actually go out and do something to improve over the Winter.  In the meantime, take solace in the fact that the Mariners aren't that bad according to our friend Dave Cameron over at USS Mariner.
