Ah, Jeez

Dickey pitched a great game last night, shutting out the Mets for seven innings. But tonight should still be exciting as the M's try to complete the sweep.

Also, I just learned that the Mariners fired their manager two days after Willie Randolph was fired. So competing managers Jim Riggleman and Jerry Manuel have two weeks of experience between them at their present positions.

They have both managed before though, including two years of overlap at the Chicago Cubs and White Sox, respectively. In 1998, the Cubs went 3-0 hosting the White Sox in interleague play, and each Chicago team finished second in its division. In 1999, the Cubs went 0-3 against the White Sox at Wrigley but then 2-1 at Comiskey. Weird.
