Reading Between The Seams:
Seattle Mariners OF Endy Chavez is no stranger to home run robbing catches, but reminded us of his acumen Saturday Night against the Los Angeles Angels C Hank Conger. As if he’s done it many times, Chavez measures the drive and times his jump perfectly to pull the ball back (via MLB.com)
Did we say he’s done it many times? St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets fans will remember his spectacular home run saving catch on Scott Rolen in Game 7 of the 2006 National League Championship Series when Chavez was a member of the Mets. Watch the catch (via MLB.com) that he turned into a double play in a critical juncture of the pivotal game.
The moral of the story is, if you hit it Chavez’ way, you better get it a few rows deep or else take your chances!

Well, the Seattle Mariners didn’t exactly meet my expectations for their series against the Los Angeles Angels. In fact, they almost did the complete opposite. Absolutely outmatched at the plate by Los Angeles’ starters, the Mariners couldn’t generate any offensive momentum and saw themselves be embarrassingly swept by the Halos.
Now Seattle must try and rebound...
As the night wore on, Eric Wedge began to feel more comfortable standing back on the railing of the Seattle Mariners dugout and making baseball decisions for the first time in a month.
There just weren't many highlights for the Mariners skipper.
''My energy was good and the focus was good. Just didn't have a whole hell of a lot of action tonight,'' Wedge...
Chris Nelson hit a two-run homer off Felix Hernandez and the Los Angeles Angels ruined Eric Wedge's return to the dugout with a 2-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night.

Ben and Sam discuss Jack Zduriencik and the future of the Mariners, then talk about CC Sabathia`s dismaying season.
Weaver being Weaver. The rest of the Angels being something other than the 2013 Angels.
On a night in which the Los Angeles Angels completed a 3-game sweep of the Seattle Mariners every hitter in the Angels' lineup got a hit. This is a clear indicator that either the Apocalypse is upon us or (more likely) that the game was meaningless in terms of the playoffs.
