Seattle Mariners Game 31: vs. Detroit Tigers

The Mariners take on Doug Fister tonight. Everyone in the world remembers that Doug Fister used to be a good pitcher for the Mariners, a lot less people remember that Fister has league average peripherals. He plays in a pitcher-friendly park, but I still predict a big regression for him this year. He’s coming off an injury, so of course, even if he struggles today he’s got about 18 built in excuses. Kyle Seager is mashing. That’s it.
