OP neglected to mention Mitch Haniger, who has capably filled in as both cleanup and three hole hitter and is basically the best Mariner right now.

Just tonight, he hit two home runs and threw out Valbuena trying to stretch a single.

Obviously this season has been fantastic so far, but I think the best part is that the Ms have actually been playing better since Cano got suspended.

There were MULTIPLE games that the Mariners won in which Gordon Beckham and Andrew Romine were the middle infielders.

This is your periodic reminder that we got Mitch Haniger and Jean Segura for Taijuan Walker and Ketel Marte.

The most recent Iwakuma news I can see is from 10 days ago and it said he's still working his way back and will start in AAA when he's healthy again.

I would like them to bring him back up for a proper send off, since he did through a no hitter a couple of years ago.

I wonder if the Mariners try to resign Cruz for next season. I feel like they have to keep Dee at second, but then you run into a jam about what to do with Ryon Healy, Vogelbach and Cano.

My thought is that they don't resign Cruz, keep Dee at 2B and put Cano at DH. It keeps him in the lineup, but off the field, so there's less chance of injury.

Keep Healy at 1B. Vogelbach I don't know what to do with.

Good start last night.

Putting on my Homer brand rose colored novelty glasses:

Even after the Hou/Bos/Ny/Bos stretch, the M's right now are playing at a 98 win pace. I'll take it and be happy.

They're only one win behind what I expected for that stretch and they had two games they could have won if the bullpen hadn't poo poo the bed.

They've got some ground to make up behind Houston, but we solidly have a WC spot and I'm totally fine with that.

My current silver lining is that the M's won't be paying Felix past the age of 33. At least he was still young the last time they extended him.

Honest question - will the $27M the M's pay Felix in 2019 be the worst spent money in baseball? Suppose it depends on how Pujols or Miggy do.

Chris Davis is making 21M, so...

Álex Colomé has really settled down and hasn’t given up a run in July.

Can't overstate Cruz coming through against Cole to scratch out the runs we needed.

Today was my birthday and was the first time since 97 I have been to an M's game, that was a great game to be in Safeco. Once Cruz hit that double to score us 2 runs the whole stadium became so energized it made the night really special.

Do you think once Díaz notches his 50th save they’re gonna do the haircut right there on the mound? God I hope it happens at home.

We six games at home this week, so it's certainly possible!

Though that would mean he saved 5 of the next 9 games, which is not where we want his workload to be.

Apparently he's already at 46, but still 4 of the next 9 games is not what we want from him.
