How about a little appreciation for Jason Vargas? Granted, pitching against the Padres at Safeco Field isn’t exactly the toughest matchup in the world, but after his six-hit, complete-game shutout last night, he is now tied with James Shields for the American League lead with three shutouts.
OK, so I’m mostly mentioning this so I have an excuse to post a picture of the throwback unis the Mariners were wearing last night. Am I crazy for actually liking them?
