CHOOCHUS INTERRUPTUS, FOLKS.
Because Scott Servais, Mariners Manager is a cruel gentleman who thinks for some reason it’ll be a better idea for markedly fewer fans to see Carlos Ruiz during the day, he’s not starting him tonight. Don’t believe me? Check the lineup.
|SEATTLE MARINERS||PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES|
|Jean Segura - SS||Cesar Hernandez - 2B|
|Ben Gamel - RF||Aaron Altherr - LF|
|Robinson Cano - 2B||Odubel Herrera - CF|
|Kyle Seager - 3B||Maikel Franco - 3B|
|Danny Valencia - 1B||Michael Saunders - RF|
|Guillermo Heredia - LF||Tommy Joseph - 1B|
|Jarrod Dyson - CF||Freddy Galvis - SS|
|Tuffy Gosewisch - C||Cameron Rupp - C|
|Ariel Miranda - LHP||Jerad Eickhoff - RHP|
Tuffy Gosewich? BOOOOOOOOO.
Seriously, I know he has a game to win and whatever blah blah blah, but couldn’t he just do this? Carlos Ruiz is 38 and very near to retirement. This is probably the last time he’ll ever play in Citizens Bank Park in front of the fans who love him forever. COULDN’T YOU DO THIS FOR US, SCOTT SERVAIS, YOU EVIL CRUEL MONSTER?
