At home on the road

Or is it on the road at home? Either way, Seattle is the home of a two time World Series winning team. See, we have to rings to prove it.

It will be nice to come home, after three disappointing losses, all by 1 run to the Nationals in our nation's capital. If you have any way to watch the games from here in Seattle this weekend, I suggest you do so. The Marlins were booted out of their home stadium this weekend for a U2 concert. That means for the first time in the 15 years of Interleague play, the the home stadium will have it's regular tenant be the visiting team or something like that.  New Marlins manager Jack McKeon, Hanley Ramirez, and the Marlins will be the home team in Seattle this weekend.

The game will played under National League rules with the pitchers hitting, and the Marlins will bat last. They decided not to bring their home whites, so they will be in grays, and the M's in white but being the visitors. I'm going to try and get to the game this weekend to see some history. This should be a fun sight to see.

Also, it was weird to see another former Mariner manager just up and quit. Mike Hargrove did here a few years ago. Now, after beating the M's again in a 1 run game, Jim Riggleman walked away from his team.

"Well guys, that's it I quit!"
