I’m watching the Mariners-A’s game on MLB.tv. It just began a couple of minutes ago. The Root sports broadcasters are doing the game via video while back home in Seattle. That’s special.
Ichiro came to bat with two outs in the first inning, worked the count full off Brandon McCarthy and then chopped one off the turf over McCarthy’s head for an infield hit. How very Ichiro. Then Justin Smoak struck out.
The A’s are just coming to bat. Yoenis Cespedes is batting seventh for some reason.
Baseball at 6:20 AM? That’s OK. Works for me.
