If you have a FaceBook account, join the Everett AquaSox there by becoming a fan. They’re looking for 2500 fans by Opening Day, which is Monday, June 21st. The free ticket is for a game on July 12th against the Spokane Indians (Texas Rangers affiliate). Everett has a nice little stadium that sits just off I-5, and watching baby Mariners is always fun. Plus, free tickets to a baseball game! What’s not to love? All you have to do is sign up. It takes a second, very little energy, and is absolutely not painful.
Also, if you haven’t already, join me as well. I don’t have any tickets to give away, but I’m really nice and sometimes even a little funny!
Today at 3.30pm, Conor at ProBallNW is hosting a live chat during the afternoon draft. The guys over there are pretty stoked about the draft; and you have to admit that it might be a bit more exciting than watching the Rangers decimate us later today; though you’ll have time to watch that happen as well, being that it’s at 5pm this evening. Yay?
Lastly, everyone knows by now that Mike Carp is up and Mike Sweeney is now on the DL. I don’t really have anything to say about this, as it’s kind of a lateral move. A quick glance at their simple offensive numbers shows similarities, so now we just have a healthier younger Sweeney who might be a little less scary at first base whenever Casey Kotchman needs a break (watching Sweeney fall over trying to make a routine catch a few weeks ago was not much fun). So that’s that.
