LET'S PLAY 81: After the awesomeness of King Felix over Matsuzaka on Wednesday, MLB decided to cancel the rest of the Red Sox-Mariners series (yeah, yeah, rain, whatever). So now, what was supposed to be 10 games into the season, the Mariners already have missed 5, which they'll have to make up -- including in trips to Cleveland, where the Mariners aren't even scheduled to play again -- on off-days when other teams are resting and doing their laundry. They've played two games in eight days. I realize that they're not going to be in a pennant race, but this is at least hypothetically ridiculous.
