Game 87, Mariners 4, A's 2 (38-49) (cusses)
I have some cusses about this one, aimed in part at umpires who decline to enforce the rule book because that's how they goddamn feel and aimed in part at the Mariners who cannot win without cheating.1
This is a family blog, though, so my cusses will be kept in the footnotes. Venture there if you dare.
Look, forty nine losses are a lot. The only team with more in the American League is the Royals, and their future looks a lot brighter than Oakland's. And yet through the first forty eight of those losses, I've kept my head, because a loss in baseball is just a loss. But not tonight. Tonight I have cusses.2
