CarGo just made a huge catch in his first game.
The catcher should never backup 1st with a runner on 3rd. Mariners are just bad at baseball.
the play is double play unless the ball is hit softer, if for some reason the double play isnt turned the runner at 3rd is going to score anyway, backing up first prevents the runner who wasn't out from advancing to 2nd, 3rd or even home.
I mean I'm not going to hold it against you rooting for a team with a chance instead of a team that has as much as a chance as I do.I'm always conflicted. The Mariners were the team I grew up loving (I was born in Seattle, grew up in West Texas, and went to see the Mariners during Spring Training almost every year). When I moved to Houston in 5th grade I started following the Astros but it meant I got to have a favorite AL/NL team. Now the Stros are in the AL West and the Astros are always going to win out, but I have a lot of nostalgia for my old Seattle jerseys, hats, etc.
