    Straw makes some incredibly awful reads at times for someone with his experience in CF.

    Yeah, he went back off the bat and then compounded it by not running directly to the ball

    I LOVE MARMALADO IN THE OF

    Straws are banned in Seattle. C'mon Baker.

    Odorizzi has got a full-on Monet happening here.

    Are you more entertained by Odorizzi?

    I think he’ll be fine. Doesn’t need t strike everybody out. Takes a few starts for the magic of Strom (and Greinke) to penetrate.

    Nice 10-pitch inning for Rizzi.

    Three more and he might have a decent PC overall.

    Score some runs, Stros

    One thing is for sure, we are not going to win this one with 1 run.

    Odorizzi has been impressive since the first inning. The offense has to start carrying their weight. The regulars who are still able to play haven't done much.

    Their only hit is the fly ball that got lost in the sun

    The AT&T broadcast should display the batter's name and stats on-screen same way it does the pitcher. Display the ERA too.

    The hitters have been slumping and missing some fat pitches for a while now.

    Mariners fans saying the same thing about their lineup the last two days...

    Perception matters.

    McCormick gets his first career SB.

    He has speed ?!!!

    Put him in CF. His arm can't be any worse than Straw's.
