This one gets its own thread for the pure randomness of it--something you can't plan.

I'm sure they had no idea at the beginning of the series that something so significant would happen, but in Friday's Mariners-Padres game at Petco Park, Seattle's back-up catcher, José Godoy, became the 20,000th player in Major League Baseball history.

Not to be overlooked.

I heard that mentioned on the broadcast. Interesting trivia.
