It seemed like it Monday night in Canada. Paxton, a left-hander from British Columbia was drafted by Toronto in 2009. Monday marked his first start against Toronto, and his first career appearance in Canada.
Analysis: Paxton allowed a career-high nine runs, walked a career-high six and matched a career high by giving up seven hits in 2 2-3 innings, his shortest career start. Paxton came in not having allowed more than three runs in any of his 15 previous starts. "I probably just wanted it a bit too much," Paxton said after he choked.

Analysis: Paxton provided hope, retiring all six batters in the Mariners' 12-1 rout of the San Diego Padres on Friday. "It's early in the spring but the young man has talent," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "He's capable of doing things. He pounded the zone down and that was pretty impressive."
