As Pennsylvania decides the Democratic hopeful for Pennsylvania Avenue--no relation--we should all remember that the law is an ass. There may be an omen in there.

Okay, one more metaphor: the Mariners will be weighed in the early-season scales this week with a visit by suddenly dangerous Baltimore. If we come out victorious, we can set a pretty good tone for the rest of the month. If we can't beat the Birds now... we'll, let's not think about that.
Update: No need to think. With Putz back in action and a slumping Vidro knocking in the winning runs, we held 'em off. For today.
