It’s a beautiful day for baseball in Seattle ...

  • Reynaldo Lopez gets the start for the White Sox today. Lopez has struggled a bit recently, turning in just one quality start over his last five. However, this Mariners offense has never seen Lopez, so we’ll see how the right-hander fares today.
  • Marco Gonzales gets the start for the Mariners. He’s had a pretty good year so far, with a 7.78 K/9 and a 1.75 BB/9. Gonzales also has a 0.82 ERA over his last three starts. It will be a tough task against the soft-tossing lefty.
  • Watching Avisaíl García hit that three-run home run last night made me wonder: Who do you think is more valuable at the trade deadline ... García or Jose Abreu? With García’s recent power surge, I have a feeling it might be him. But Abreu is bound to turn it around at some point, right? I dunno, something to think about.
