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.

I would go so far as to say that the M's are doing well because Cano got suspended.

1995: Lose Griffey for half the season due to injury => first playoff appearance
2000: Trade away Johnson in '98 and Griffey in off-season => ALCS
2001: Lose A-Rod via free-agency => 116 wins
2018: Lose Cano for half the season due to hot piss => ????????

Yeah at this point I want to see how many one run games we can win. Itís getting sort of insane.

I'm looking forward to next year's commercials touting the importance of run conservation

anyone else kinda pissed there was only one wildcard spot for so long? M's would've tied for the second spot in 2002 and had it outright in 2003

silver-lining: it'll make it easier to tell the org to gently caress off with their demands for cash to sign the lease.

Well the Mariners are bad and Seahawks are going to be bad and there is no basketball in Seattle. Feels like 2008!

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

My heart tells me that the Mariners are going to hold on just long enough to get eliminated at home by the As. A terrible collapse concluding with the As celebrating on the Mariners own field. Maybe even with Fernando Rodney finishing it and doing the goddamn arrow.

really want to see this

specifically a palette-swapped version of this
