    Sucks for the Mariners that they're missing our average #1 starter.

    Well, we got the bottom of the Mariners rotation, which has been worse than ours.

    Walker and Iwakuma have really struggled, and Happ isn't anything special

    We can take 2 of 3.

    I have a feeling Walker will find his rhythm against us. But McHugh is McHugh, esp against the Mariners and at Safeco. I watched him crush that team twice last year

    Iwakuma will give up some long balls early and let our bats come to life.

    Walker... will he walk everyone or find his stride? I feel like he will pull out a win and strike out 8+ for some reason this week.

    Happ - I just don't like the guy. Didn't like him with the Astros and felt like he walked way too many batters. Here's to hoping he struggles to find the zone.

    Maybe getting out on a nice 9 day road trip will help get Carter and Gattis straightened out.

    WWL for me. I know Fausto has pitched well so far, but I just don't have any confidence in him.

    God I hate 9 p.m. start times.

    I like the DH and all. Even though I was (and still kind of am) against us being in the AL (I'd love to continue our actual rivalries). Putting TX in the AL West is a great way for MLB to lose TX fans.

    "Lets put, @ a minimum, a quarter of their games out of our timezone." Screw you Selig. I'm going to find your granddaughters, take them out to a nice restaurant and never call her back.

    I'm with Max here, I just want to win 2 of 3, and don't care which 2....

    Would love to see us rock Iwakuma tonight and keep him on the bad track

    LWW. Hopefully the Stros pitchers can keep Cruz in check.

    Carter will break out of his slump this series.

    No Carter. Didn't he hit well in Seattle last year?

    He has some crazy power for someone his size.
