    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PBP, that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on AT&T Sports SW unless otherwise noted.

    4-12 Wade Miley (L) vs. Wade LeBlanc (L) 9:10

    4-13 Justin Verlander (R) vs. Felix Hernandez (R) 8:10

    4-14 Gerrit Cole (R) vs. Marco Gonzales (L) 3:10

    I guess we will find out if the Mariner hitting machine (7.7 runs per game) is real or not.

    I moved to Seattle but will forever be a Houston sports fan. I hope we sweep the Mariners... too much bragging going on around here. Hopefully I'll be able to make it out to one of the games this stand.

    The Mariners have had their fun.

    Really hope we can establish dominance in these first 2, because my f**king Sunday is gonna be lit and I don't want an early bad taste to infringe upon it. A crawfish boil, an Astros game, Thrones, a Rockets playoff game and lots of St. Arnold.

    Their offense is. Pitching, not so much.

    Has anyone noticed that the AL West has the best division record (to this point) of any? By a good margin? Not a single team with a losing record?

    I’ll be there tonight to watch the start of the inevitable demise of these Seattle Mariners. My coworkers are already talking about securing World Series tix. Delusional Seattle fans...

    Seattle will not make the playoffs. They’ll finish 3rd in the division as well. Houston win streak extended.

    Impressive start by Seattle. Their only 2 loses were games they blew a late lead. Time to show them that the Astros are still the class of the division.

    2-0 vs OAK(9-8)
    3-1 vs BOS(4-9)
    2-0 vs LAA(7-6)
    2-1 vs CWS(3-8)
    4-0 vs KC(2-10)
    13-2(25-41)

    Started 8-5 last year before Astros came in & took 3 of 4 (9-8)
    17-11 to start May
    35-22 to start June
    46-25 middle of June
    54-31 to start July
    56-32 was their high watermark (24 games over .500) and went 33-41 the rest of the way.

    I think their hitting is more real than pitching. Luckily, we have some pitchers too. Need to blow up their bullpen, and put in our annual (or quarterly) thrashing of Felix on.

    Will aim to snag some last-minute tickets to Saturday night if they're not bandwagoned out. Based on the standard Seattle behavior, I'll probably just get $35 behind-home-plate seats for the later series in the year

    They're playing very well, so are the Stros. Time to smack these Sea Hags back down to reality.
