Well it's pretty clear the influence of Mariner Magic. Two days ago Joel Piniero and Gil Meche were called out on this blog. How does Joel respond? A complete game against one of the best teams in the AL. He only struck out two guys, but he used his defense. The 16 groundouts to 9 flyouts is encouraging. Now it's your turn Gil.
Need more proof of the power of Mariner Magic? Yesterday, Travis asked for more PT for Willie Bloomquist. He played again.
Still not convinced? From yesterday's game recap: "Lopez has to get work in the field and it showed last night with errors that resulted in unearned runs". From today's Seattle Times: "Lopez had a nice defensive night," Hargrove said. "He made good plays on grounders, but that pivot he made on the double play was great. He stayed right there and got it done."
Not to mention the curse of the Gil Meche jersey.
If you're not in awe yet, you might want to check and see if you still have a pulse.
