    I haven't checked too many stats. Just slightly obsessed with sending Moore back to Triple A Tacoma and keeping him there.

    oooh, excellent Seattle pitching, the K to walk ratio is top of the league. Just need that bats to heat up. Maybe warmer weather this summer will help?

    I actually don't have much of a problem with Moore. At least he tries hard.

    if only the Mariners could teach him how to bunt. A player with his speed could run a few out. I know, i know... no bunting. I miss the good ol' days.

    That was a great great performance from everyone on the mound. Is Thornton better than last year?

    I beg to differ. Saw more bunting to begin this year than in previous years.

    I do find this funny, but the mariners and rangers have the same amount of HRs this season so far (18)

    Orioles #1 with 30

    Texas has 12 more doubles then Seattle.

    "hit em where they ain't" isn't confined to moon balls.

    oh here we go again, the NW special. Owners that spend to win are stupid. Small market teams can't attract good players. Did the previous GM sabotage the Mariners too ??

    Do you not remember Jack Z? I have tried to forget him. I did not need this reminder lmao.

    I merely said the rangers spent for it. Baseball has no salary cap so it behooves to spend.

    Our ownership is satisfied with winning 53% of the games, so they guide the ship I suppose.

    Miller's throwing more benders and spitballs. His stuff is filthy this season.

    Hopefully the mile high air and a sub-.500 opponent can get the bats going a bit.

    How do you go scoreless for 9 innings in Coors field, then score a run in the 10th and fucking lose.

    This team isn't serious.

    Crawford has 3 ribbys. That'll quiet the crowd in Colorado.
