    He’s a good enough manager. I like former catchers as managers. Hard too look too deep into a microscope on a manager who fucks up once in awhile in a 162 game season.

    The fact they have such a shitty offense and are 10 games over .500 is crazy

    For the second year in a row they give up a 7+ run lead to the royals in KC.

    Fuck Stanek.

    Seattle hasn't fired a coach midseason for 9 years. I'm glad somebody got canned. Even if Brown didn't deserve to get fired. It means the GM wants better, not meh

    Blazer fan syndrome is a real thing. Mariners are at a better spot divisionally than they’ve been in years and they lose a game and shit is about to go DOWN.

    I’m not saying the team is without some major flaws. But a point of reference with this sad ass franchise is kind of nice

    He was a scapegoat. Not sure there’s a managerial job in sports that mean less than a hitting coach.

    and Brown wasn’t even a hitting coach. He was a coordinator of some kind.

    Im old and nerdy enough to remember Brant Brown as a scrub with the Cubs

    Onto the next one. Sucks to see the offense come alive and the pitching let them down. Taste of their own medicine i guess.

    I will say though, Stanek has been a bum. He can take that little mullet right out of town. He’s looked like shit this year

    the best was the base chuck. Lue got tossed, yanked out a base pad, then javelined that sucker down the line about 50 feet. He wasn't happy afterwards, because he said he strained his hammy during the olympic style base chuck.

    We damn near did everything to try to get swept by the royals. Holy hell.

    Also, man wouldn't it be nice to have teoscar on our team? Oh wait....

    We are getting shut out by the worst team in baseball. Worst pitching staff in baseball.

    Worst loss since....

    Okay that’ll do.

    Raleigh hits for such a shitty average but comes up big at the right times
