    Didn't he do that in fall ball also? And then promptly went 0-for his remaining at bats?

    Jeremy Guthrie had his first start since 2015 yesterday. He was promptly lit up like a Christmas tree, giving up 10 runs in the first inning, only recording two outs before being pulled. Had a negative game score of -4.

    I watched the inning on mlb.tv this morning to see how it happened. Walks killed him. He had several chances to get out of the inning only giving up 3-4 runs.

    And the Angels came back from 9-3 to win 10-9 over the Mariners. Pujols had a 2 run single to tie the game, Trout got on base with a walk, and Pennington drove him home with a single off the right field wall to win it/

    Ugh.

    At least I've become more of a casual fan of them. I find that my interest in all teams is declining with age except Cornell and the Mets.

    You neglected to mention that all 7 runs were in the bottom of the 9th:

    Homer (1)
    Walk
    Single
    Walk
    Ground out (2)
    Strike out
    Double (3, 4)
    Walk
    Walk
    Single (5, 6)
    Single (7)

    And... scene.

    I thought of you when I read this quote from "Veeck--As In Wreck: The Autobiography of Bill Veeck" by Bill Veeck, Ed Linn -
    "Built into the scoreboard also was a speaker system so powerful that if we had ever turned it all the way up, we could have blown 50,000 people out of the park. With a speaker system, we could obviously play any kind of sound track, or combination of sound tracks, that suited our mood and purpose. My own favorite performance, I think, was the rendition of the chorus of Handel’s Messiah, a glorious and exalting passage under any circumstances but, as you can imagine, a thing of sheer exultation when combined with the bursting bombs and the rockets’ red glare in celebration of a White Sox home run. Try to picture it. The ball has disappeared over the fence, the batter is rounding first base and the lights have already begun to chase themselves madly up and down and around the board. From the speaker come the strains of the Messiah chorus, but just as it has built to its marvelous climax, there is a moment of silence (as the amplifying system is pushed up) and then, in a beautiful and booming choral arrangement: HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH!

    Now comes another classical passage, a passage known to us opera lovers as The Lone Ranger Galloping Theme: Da-dada da-dada da-dada da da. Awaaaaaaaaayyyyy! And away we go, again, to the full-voiced Messiah chorus and HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! And as the last HALLELUJAH! fades away, there is a BOOM! And a BOOM! And a BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! as the bombs explode and the rockets splash across the sky."

    In terms of the Mariners, you can now buy toasted grasshoppers at Safeco.

    Safeco actually ran out of the grasshoppers yesterday and had to bring in an emergency supply.

    Coors Field has, at one and only one of the concession stands, Rocky Mountain Oysters.

    I've had 'em. They're actually decent. Taste kinda like fish, but not as flaky.
