Astros and the A's pairing up for a series. I honestly don't know what to root for.

Edit : Seems so boring and mathematical, but I guess I'm just going to root against which ever team has the better record for each game. So, go A's for today. Kinda.

He has come home, where he belongs. The Ancient Mariner returns to lead his first team to glory, forever and ever. Amen!


Anyone else amused by Kershaw's angry yell in the 6th there when he missed a pitch up 8-1?

I'd like to know who else would be the fifth starter, though. Is Iwakuma anywhere close to being back?

If Felix managed to pitch around the effectiveness he had tonight for the rest of the year, I'd be ecstatic.

Hisashi Iwakuma is never going to pitch again and I will have to find new excuses to wear my bear hat

It is fitting that the Padres gave the Mariners the last rites for their playoff hopes.

Also fitting that Felix goes 7 strong with 2 runs allowed and the mariners can't score any of their many baserunners (also how did Nix throw 8.1 IP with no strikeouts)

We want the ball & We're going to score
My goal for the Mariners for the rest of the year is to finish with the 5th best record in MLB and miss the playoffs. They're 5.5 back of Oakland for real playoffs, or 4.5 back for the wtf achievement.

Cubs - 78-53
Cleveland - 75-56
Atlanta - 74-57
Seattle/StLouis - 74-58

Then if things get really bad - the quest for 7 more wins to get to .500.

The season was fun if also super frustrating. Maybe Díaz can get the league save record next year.

It's still possible he could get the record this year, we just need to win 13 more games.

I'm expecting the Mariners to win the Oakland series to look like they're back in it, then get wrecked by the Orioles.

God DAMMIT I’m already back on board. If we sweep Oakland we are 2.5 out of the second wild card slot.
