    I caught bits & pieces. Logan on the mound for Seattle. Some rando 3-10 Herzcough Mangofred was pitching for the Angels.

    Mariners catcher parked a fluff ball in the stands, 3-0 Seattle! Then I turned around and it was 3-2, then 3-3. I'm like... wtf?

    Forgot the game was even on.

    Flipped the tv on like 2 hours later...

    Mariners down 5-3 in the 10th inning... uh oh. Hey, Julio's at bat, I better watch this. BOOOOOOOM goes the dynamite. Line drive shot over center field wall.
    Tie game, everyone is happy!

    Then some nerdy guy with glasses started pitching for the Mariners. The crummy Angels began spraying balls all over the place, Blowers called them lucky hits, and the Angels won the game.

    I promised everyone here I would quit watching so they would start winning again.

    8 runs on 12 hits tonight for Seattle. The M's pitchers tossed a 4 hit donut. TAKE THAT ANGELS!

    Good game and effort from Woo. What a schedule coming up though. LAD x3, HOU x3 and TEX x7. Fuck me. If they finish the season strong they will be more than ready for any wildcard matchup. Can they go ~500 in those 13 games? That would be ok.

    Ohtani should put in a trade request, "Seattle only"

    And then maybe the Blazers can trade Ant and Nurk for Giannis

    that was discussed on the JR Podcast following the 2nd trade deadline dismemberment. How to make Cronin look cool? Selling the idea of MVP players that Portland has no chance to get, takes extremely high quality basketball intelligence.

    I don't know how any team beats them in a 7 game series. The run differential is unreal. They have an outside shot at 1,000 runs scored in a season. That's unreal.

    I feel like with no moves made, Alex Anthopoulos should win executive of the year until they suck again for building the roster he did, and locking in that core long term.

    Houston and Texas lose again and we crap the bed.

    Now we're out of the playoffs. Fuck this.

    Not going to be easy to make the last WC spot with this schedule. Just not coming up with the big hits. Two on and no outs and 1-3 can’t deliver anything? Not acceptable.
