It was pretty fun there for a while when I had some confidence that they could make a comeback late in the game

Tonight summed it up. Majority of people in the stadium were Blue Jays fans.

I'm fed the gently caress up.

Well, the Mariners were not swept by the Toronto Blue Jays.

They just lost the 4 game series.

Hey M's fans why is there a thing on deadspin with a fan trying to catch a popup in a bucket of poutine

Is that a thing they always do when the Jays are in town

In the pre-game stuff, there's a fan attraction called "Make a catch, with a catch". Basically a child and their parent go out and try to catch up to 4 fly balls. The child gets to use a glove, but the parent has to use something else. This time around, it was a basket of poutine they had to use.

Went to the Rainiers game, Robbie played 1B. Went 1-3 with a walk and probably should have been charged an error on a bobbled grounder. One gentleman very vocally and repeatedly expressed his displeasure at a perceived lack of hustle down the first base line.

Felix has been dead for a while, he's by far the worst pitcher in our rotation this year.

Felix staying a loyal Mariner through the darkest years only to eventually cost them a playoff spot is the cruelest loving irony

I didn't actually watch the game, but can someone tell me why Felix was left out to die so utterly? Just based on the box it makes no sense why he went out for the 6th at all.

probably to crush Felix's spirit so he'll accept long-relief/mop-up duty

I know I’m a true Mariner fan because

1. When I mentioned the Felix “GOT EM” strikeout of Beltre to my dad, he immediately said “well we got shelled”

2. Even with Felix getting shelled I can take some joy from that gif.

We will never be happy, will we? :smith:

Pen got used up in the 12 inning game on Monday so they couldn't really jump to relief early. That it happened to be a Felix start was most unfortunate.

If they drag Ryan Rowland-Smith out of the ROOT studio to go 5 1/3 innings I ... wouldn't be totally opposed at this point

If you use the current rubric that lets pitchers in to the hall, no pitchers are getting in.
