    Well it’s clear the roster needs work, another super star level player wouldn’t hurt, and clutch hitting needs work, but I don’t know what you do about that. Work on contact hitting?

    if only the Mariners could bunt. Manufacturing runs could be helpful in Seattle. Especially with their amazing starting pitchers.

    Boy they sure shit the bed against the Dodgers. You'd think they could have pulled off one game at least? I'm thinking I better start watching again?

    My FIL who is a Mariners fan pointed out the difference in this series was the Dodgers had guys going for base hits and the Mariners were all trying to hit home runs.

    Yep. We go for 3 runs with a runner on base when there's no runners on.

    Solid win against a rotten opponent. Have to win those so all is good.

    Unfortunately with our slide we have to win all of them. Any loss is gonna be brutal.

    Head to head.


    But we also have 7 games in the last couple weeks with them so it'll probably be decided rightly lol
