The Mariners called up a surprise starter for tonight's game against the Chicago White Sox. His name? Doug Fister. While not well-known to M's fans, Fister's caught the eye of management with his work in AAA and thus got the call-up--the team's illusory playoff hopes notwithstanding. Apparently, he's a control specialist who throws in the upper 80s. Should things not go well, he can probably find a sympathetic ear from this guy.
