A waste of a homer May 22, 2008

The goggles!  They do nothing!

Neither does a Yuniesky Betancourt home run.  Yuni broke up the Detroit Tigers’ demolition of Jarrod Washburn’s fastballs with a line drive homer off Kenny Rogers (video here).  That halved the M’s deficit at 2-1, but the Tigers scored a bunch more runs the next inning, and that was that.  Isn’t baseball fun?

Actually… I think it is.  Yes, the Mariners season is lost, but there are still fun things to watch.  R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball will be replacing Cha Seung Baek’s grimace.  The weather’s getting better.  The team will be giving away cool hats in JulyAugust 8th will be a Yuniesky-opalyse.  And, though the team is consistently spanked (right now they’re losing 9-2), there are still moments to revel.   Like that five-hour loss against Texas.  Or their four-run ninth inning rally on Tuesday that halved their margin of defeat from 8 to 4.  There was a small chance that the game was going to be awesome.

Mariners fans live in potentially great, but greatly squandered times.
