GAME UPDATES: Rays vs. Mariners, April 23rd
Apr. 23, 2009 (News Tribune delivered by Newstex ) --

As I've said before, I love me some day Baseball. Even if it is freezing cold day Baseball. Today is a day when paying $7 for the bleacher seats and sitting in the sun is a wise investment.

I'd wear a Snuggie if somebody gave me one right now. Even it was bright pink. In fact, I'm thinking the Mariners should sell navy blue snuggies with the Mariners logos for people who want to buy them. I'd bet you they would sell more than you would think.

Top of 1stFelix looking sharp, striking out Upton and Longoria.

Bottom of 1stIchiro starts off the game with a solo home run to right. It was his 28th lead off homer of his career.

Top of 2ndWell, this is interesting. We have a double error on the play as Jamie Burke boots a ball at first, then makes a wild throw past Felix who was covering. The ball then gets by Rob Johnson, who was backing up allowing the lead runner to go to third. So there was an error on BUrke and an error on Johnson, oh and Felix seemed to tweak his ankle on the play. But he gets out of the inning, striking out Navarro and getting Iwamura to pop up.
