Ichiro is still out, Adrian Beltre still swollen – and you know where! – and now Russell Branyan is on the disabled list with a herniated disk.
That leaves the team with no one with 20 home runs and only one player, Jose Lopez, with more than 55 RBI.
A team that’s won with pitching and defense is going to have to pitch better, defend with near perfection and somehow manage to score a run or two along the way.
It’s Ian Snell vs. Gil Meche.
Need runs? No problem!
Franklin Gutierrez and Josh Wilson…
