While it was an awful season for our Seattle Mariners, Mo and I have been enjoying watching the playoffs this week. Mo was totally outraged by the bizarre ending to Thursday night’s White Sox – Angels game, protesting with all of the moral outrage a seven year old is capable of.
It’s a little bittersweet to see all of the former Mariners in the playoffs, including some we didn’t even really get to know, like Scott Podsednik and John Mabry.
But it sure was nice to see Freddy Garcia pitch a great game for the White Sox tonight, and I love the way the Sox have had three games in a row with the starter going the whole game – apparently it’s the first time that’s happened in the postseason since 1973.
Today Mo told me that he couldn’t wait till his next baseball season starts – now that’s what a dad loves to hear!
