Carmona was pretty good, only giving up 2 runs.

You'd think 2 runs would be an easy obstacle against Seattle, who I think are possibly the worst team in the AL. They are bad in a lot of areas.

You'd think 2 runs would be an easy obstacle when your 8 and 9 guys go 4-for-4 and 2-for-3. But not when your top 6 get 2 hits between them.

You'd think we'd capitalize on 2 unearned runs on 2 errors. But instead we committed 2 errors and gave up one unearned run ourselves.

Lou Marson had a fucking good game tonight. He threw out a guy at 2nd and went 3-for-3 (the aforementioned 4-for-4 counted Marson's replacement going 1-for-1).

Hey guess who's going to go party in the Hargrove Suite on Monday, with Mr. and Mrs. Grover themselves? Why, it's me!

I bid a bunch of money for the charity Coats for Kids and won the big prize of a night out with the Grovers for me and 3 of my friends. So that's pretty awesome news. I wonder if we'll be on TV? That would be weird. You could see me on TV only you wouldn't know which one was me! I'll be the one smiling!

I've got to keep it cool until then. So far I've been smiling a lot, and looking off into the distance. Today when I mowed my lawn I was just all smiles. My neighbors probably thought I was having too much fun on that tractor seat.

Tomorrow we've got 2, at 1:05 and 7:05, but I'll be late on the night game because it's fondue night at the Melting Pot, yo!

I felt pretty bad at the start of this post, due to the game. But remembering that I get to meet a baseball player next week and there's going to be 3 games in the next 24 hours, well now I feel pretty awesome.

See you tomorrow at 1:05 - keep smilin'!
