Stop everything! It's aliens! They're here!

Oh no, wait, false alarm.

Yesterday I predicted a Mariners win. But no -- they got creamed! 19-3. White Sox blew them away as if they were a pack of school kids.

If the M's lose today, they split the series. Which is respectable against the team with the best record in the AL. I'd rather they win -- but I'm not going to predict it. Not again.
