There are copycats in the world. People who emulate something because of a plethora of reasons. It could be that they find someone attractive, so they copy their style, their fashion, or their personality. It could be that they find a way to make more money, so they copy their techniques, their skills, or their ethics. These people usually have low self-esteem, being that they are unable to formulate their own thoughts or opinions. These people are usually annoying, being that those thoughts or opinions are just regurgitated ideas. John Danks is a copycat.
He joins a barrel full of pitchers who have owned the Seattle Mariners. Over the past two years, Colby Lewis has gone 3-1 while only giving up eight earned runs. In that same time frame, Jered Weaver has gone 4-1 while only giving up 8 earned runs. Since 2010, Danks has a 5-0 record against Seattle, giving up only three earned runs over the course of five starts. John Danks wants to emulate other pitchers who have had success against the mariners. After tonight, those pitchers will be emulating him.
Tonight, nothing good happened to the Mariners. Danks went the distance, giving up three hits, while striking out ten batters and only walking one. Tonight, we have to look hard for a good story.
Ten episodes from now and people might get the wrong idea about us.

Topics for the big show include the Mariners upcoming season, a group of people that want to Fire Nintendo, and the return of everyone’s favorite game, You Can Only Have One.
