    Umpires have to be at an all time worse clip on the more “egregious” misses.

    Pitches down the middle being called balls. Pitches a foot out called a strike (because the catcher didn’t move).

    This is bad even if there was no possibility for a robotic or real-time zone.

    And now he’s inching his way back up the lineup. Gross.

    Unfortunately he’s an equivocal to better option when facing lefties, especially if Dubon has to play the OF.

    These late games are tough. Hopefully we keep it close so I am forced to stay up

    Hopefully Astros are up 5 by the 6th inning, so you can rest early.... in theory we should win.

    Jake needs to get his groove back, like seriously.

    He’s not, he’s a 4th OFer with spurts of “I’m a starter” just enough to fool ya…..

    A most interesting path to a 3-inning 2-hit shutout for Arrighetti so far at nearly 60 pitches…

    Mariners NOT winning (tied) in the 5th against Withe Sox.

    Judging SEA's record and run-diff, they are fool's gold.

    Shame on the Astros for being 2-5 against those frauds. Luck Meter

    Mariners have great starting pitching with a shitty lineup.
    I fully expect them to add some thump to it at the deadline.

    Since coming back from Florida, at this moment Abreu is "hitting"

    .189
    He has walked ONE time and struck out NINE, so his on base average is
    .210

    His slugging is .378

    OPS: 588

    Espada is sabotaging the team by playing him every day. If Espada is being forced to play him every day, whoever is forcing him to do so needs to be exiled to the middle of the Arctic Ocean without a life vest

    One or two extra wins right now would be huge, and team "leadership" don't give a sh*t

    Its sickening

    He's doing great considering all the positions he plays.

    Even if he is playing every day, why the **** is he batting anywhere higher than 8th. Chas is having an awful year, but he is still outperforming him at a large clip. Play to win the game rather than as gambling addict trying to bet your way out of debt.

    Arrighetti's last inning... no way I let him go to the 7th inning at over 90 pitches. I have faith that one of the next 3 batters will score on our end.
