Showalter may think twice arguing call

But two years ago, he was on his last legs...

Indians 10 Mariners 8: Yan Freaking Gomes and the Mariners Defense – a Lethal Combination

I have been to hundreds and hundreds of baseball games in my 37 years on this earth. I don’t think I have ever witnessed a game like this one. The beauty of baseball is that every time out, you may see something you have never seen before. Today was one of those days.
