Seattle Mariners Game 6: @ Texas Rangers

I have a bunch of stuff to do today, but Brendan Ryan got benched. He’s not hurt, he’s benched. Apparently Eric Wedge thinks that something about the way Ryan has played makes him worth benching, and that he’ll send a message to the team using a guy who has a contract that expires after this year as his message board. Whatever.
