"I never blame myself when I'm not hitting. I just blame the bat and if it keeps up, I change bats.

After all, if I know it isn't my fault that I'm not hitting, how can I get mad at myself?"

Hmph, was hoping for sun. Wearing jeans on the way down - but packed shorts just in case.

There might be sun, esp. Tu/We.

So some type of sophisticated tracking thingy says the Blue Jays have a 76% chance of making the post-season right now.

 

Here is the rest of their season:

Estimates say anywhere from 1/3 to 3/4 of the crowd at the game were Jays fans last night.  I know, that's a bit of a range.

^ Not surprising. I couldn’t make it this year, but I have gone to Safeco the last three years the Blue Jays have been in town. There are always lots of Blue Jays fans when they are in Seattle.

 

I imagine there will be less Toronto fans tonight and tomorrow. The Monday game is the easiest to take off work, for most.

 

The Mariners fans surely hate it as they are definitely outnumbered, but it has to be great for the team revenue wise and for the city. Getting a hotel downtown last year was nearly impossible when we tried to book, save for $800 a night at the Westin.

I'm not sure about that, I'd think it would build if anything.  Those from very far afield are probably there for more than one game (staying in hotel) and those just across the border can simply drive down.  The win last night and the better weather today might mean more "walk-up" fans from BC tonight.

 

32,000 or so there total attendance last night.
