    Road LMJ is a phenomenon to behold. Doesn't have command, doesn't get strikeouts... praying he just gets out of the first inning.

    He did have that start in KC before the season started though... ("That's ****ing nasty...")

    2 wins and the mighty Mariners are eliminated at last.

    The "mighty" mariners... lol.

    If only they weren't sellers at the deadline.

    I guess this is the poster franchise, and the sort of "races" MLB has in mind with expanded playoffs.... gag.

    Sort of. I think the expanded playoffs are 2 fold...one more playoffs games is more money, two making sure a great team that gets hurt for a month or 2 isn't eliminated. Though, I think MLB was trying to protect the Yankees than having Astros hold off Mariners.

    With all the recent offensive struggles, Dusty wants to give a day off to one of the few players getting hits? Clinch a playoff spot first then give some off days...

    Dusty at his best. Trying to give away game against an opponent that chasing us in the standing. Super smart.

    Springer was on the road to getting hurt because of how well he's been hitting which results in running...ok...hope nobody else hits an inside the park HR or he'll have to sit the next day.

    Springer plays his @ss off and will hurt himself. I don't think this applies to anyone else on the team.

    I must need to go back to sleep and wake up again. Everything I have read today strikes me as absurd.

    Make sense why the rest of the lineups been hitting like poopoo. They can’t take a chance on getting hurt. If you don’t get on base, you don’t have to run. If you don’t run, you’re less likely to be on the road to get hurt. Make all the effing sense how this year offense going about their business. And oh yeah, we get another year of this bs from Dusty.

    lol guys , springer wasnt in the field yesterday either ... i think dusty was already trying to rest him a bit .. and then he went and hit an inside the parker.

    not too upset. In general, you shouldnt lose a baseball game because 1 hitter is out .
