Ramblings from the Nation - Seattle
Opening Day was perfect, in every sense of the word. There was one bizarre finding, though. I was daydreaming during some of the ceremonies and happened look up at the rafters, wondering why they didn’t paint some of them. As I was gendering, I noticed a noose hanging from one of the aforementioned rafters. I pointed this out to several paying fans who all agreed that it was pretty spooky. I have attached the picture for your viewing pleasure…..The Seattle Mariners are in town, and the Sox hope to take 3 out of 4 from them. Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz have excellent numbers against all of the Seattle starters…..Don’t forget that Monday’s game is an eleven o’clock start, as it is Marathon Monday, as well as Patriot’s Day, in MA…..Itchiro Suzuki is off to a slow .238 start for the Mariners…..Old friend (or foe?) Carl Everett has signed with the Mariners for 2006 and fired some shots across the bow of the Chicago White Sox organization. While he has always been pretty much high maintenance for each team he has played for, he consistently puts up some solid numbers year in and year out…..Every hit Ramirez has is of the single variety…..Mark Loretta is quietly struggling, while Kevin Youkilis has been better than average at first base….Kevin Millar is hitting home runs again for the Orioles.....Enjoy the holiday.
