We like ’em four gamers.

….against the Indians, that is. ♥

Even though the first game after the All-Star break was a little disturbing; 1-4 Indians, I would have been ok with it if I knew this was going to happen:

7/17: 6-2 Mariners

7/18: 3-1 Mariners

7/19: 5-3 Mariners

It started and continued with this:

Gutierrez had 4 hits in the past 3 winning games raising his average to a .295. This man can hit, score runs and play catch! We love him!

Hmm, reminds me of someone else…..

ichiro.jpg

Although Ichiro had a mini-slump on Saturday going 0-2, he jumped right back hitting 3-4 contributing 2 runs to the final score. I didn’t get a chance to watch Web Gems last night but he should have been in the top 3 after the way he ended yesterday’s game!

He pulled a ‘Crawford’ (think All-Star game) climbing the wall robbing a potentially hazardous hit in the 9th inning to end the game.

Seattleites don’t call him “Ninja” for no reason. :]

Next series:

Drum rolls please….

The leader of the AL Central with a record of 48-42 with a .533 %. For some reason I thought they had a better record but I’m sure it’s because of all my colleagues here in Detroit that over-exaggerate how great they are. [I’m sure writing that will kick me in the booty later]. The Mariners have almost an identical record with 49-43 with a .533 %.

This should be an interesting series in general, but for me it’s going to get personal. :]  Here in Tiger-territory/Wings-ville/Piston-town/whatever…, I am the enemy starting tomorrow. My desk is decorated with Mariners paraphernalia on top of all the M’s talk and AL West pride I’ve been infamously spreading around my work area.

The BEST part of this whole thing is that I’m going to my first Mariners V.S Tigers game at Comerica Park this Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot frickin’ wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m going all-out Mariners gear and I’m thinking about some face-painting too. It’s my first away-Mariners game so I’m more than excited to be the minority fan! Plus my boyfriend was nice enough to buy me tickets that are 5 rows away from the visitor’s dugout so I’ll definitely be on FSN NW :]

I told my awesome Grandpa to TiVo it…..

…….but I should have known he would reply, “What’s a dee-bo? Do you want me to tape it for you?” :]

The best part of going on Wednesday is that according to the lineups, it should be Felix Hernandez v.s Justin Verlander. Both a 10-game winner but Felix has a 2.51 ERA while Verly has a 3.34. Now this is definitely going to be an amazing pitcher’s duel.

……….or the Mariners will inevitably whoop-*ss.

:]

Toodles!

    I saw that Husband Choice #1 just got put on the DL by the Royals. So he’s going to be out of action for a little bit. Sorry. 🙂

    The Seattle/Detroit series is going to be a good one. The Tigers trying to hold 1st place (which they will because we are going to sweep the White Sox this week) and Seattle trying to edge closer to the Angels in the division. And Wednesday’s game will be awesome with that pitching matchup. Wow. You picked the right game to go to. Great seats too!

    Eh… yeah, your just saying that to make me feel better. The truth is, the Tribe cant make anyone nervous. No one respects us & no one but the Tribe fans & our players care about how much heart-break this year has brought..Franklin used to be with us. We basically raised him into the major leagues, & I heard from Ichiro ( in an article ) that Franklin seemed more happy about that catch than Ichiro was! I feel so betrayed by former Indians that I used to cheer for myself. I doubt the next series will be a total suprise, because we probably may not win that one either. I dont mean to be too negative but I’m just really upset & frustrated. http://tribechick.mlblogs.com/ -TC

    Wow, that should be a hella-good game you are going to…congrats! And *grumble* congrats on taking three of four from the *cough*, mighty Indians.
    Me, I’ve got three straight against the BoSox at Rangers Ballpark starting tonight. Also looking forward to my date with your M’s on July 31.
    Have fun on Wednesday!
