    Alright this series separates the boys from the men, boyz 2 men if you will. I think getting a series split would be great, but it would be awesome to send a message and take 3, im not however excepting taking 3.

    I'd really like to be wrong on this stretch and do more than win 3 or maybe 4 games. Please M's, make me eat those words.

    Just feels like that starting staff is going to look a lot more like what we thought they would against real dangerous MLB hitting and those bats are going to cool off a bit against those pitching staffs. 2-2 over this stand would be amazing really.

    Felix vs Price tonight. Hopefully we can get to Price because I feel like Felix is giving up 4 runs minimum to this lineup

    I hate the feeling I'm having now but I'm thinking we will be lucky to pull off 1 W in the 4 with Boston. Playing the toughest team with an inconsistent offense? Stop and think about it....we've been able to scrape together so many 1 run and low scoring wins against mostly mediocre teams. The Angels had so many guys on the DL and it was a tough go for us. Now imagine us up against Boston's pitching and offense? I'm hoping I am dead wrong but I'm not seeing more than maybe 1 win. I still think this M's team is the best we've had in a very, very long time but I am a realist too.

    Yep, that's definitely true not doubt. What's going to be tell tale is when those 4 or so teams go head to head like the M's are about to do for much of the rest of the month. New York/Houston had Houston on the ropes. The next 10 games are going to give us a pretty good idea of what the 2018 Mariners are made of. Hoping for the best but not setting myself up for another burn job. Go M's :thumb:

    Well if the King really does want to know how it feels to pitch in a playoff game he'll put his best forward tonight, it's time for him to either contribute as a starter or move to the pen.....

    TBH, the thing that has me more worried is their at times atrocious defense and just plain old blunders in the field.

    We will find out a lot about their pitching and hitting against these two teams, but you CANNOT do the things you have gotten away with against these lessor teams and win against teams of this caliber. You just can't give teams like that 4 outs.

    Wouldn't it be ironic if they won tonight with Felix out there and lost the next 3? That would be so Mariner.

    Sadly I think if we did that one of our guys would get hurt. After all, we still have guys trying to figure out how to work the stairs in the dugout. :L

    If any of you were listening to Softy (really dick fain as softy is not in today) during textamonials, you heard them read the following text of mine on the air:
    Mariners are kings of the second tier. 2-4 against the only big team they have faced. They will go 3 - 7 over the next 10 games.

    They asked for people who either had been doubtful and now are on board, or still won't jump on the bandwagon to text in and so I did.

    They also said after reading it that they were going to save my number to call me back. Of course I hope I'm entirely wrong and they go 5-5 or better and I have no issues with Fain calling to rub my nose in it if it comes to that. I won't be gloating if I'm right. I've just seen this movie before and the ending is always 100% the same.

    Aight. Going to start off watching it. No chance I'll see any type of comeback if we fall early as I just don't have the stomach to sit through it.

    Fuck, stros completed the 4 game road sweep of the hapless Rangers and now the 3 game road sweep of the A's. Now they are on to likely get a 3 game road sweep of the pathetic Royals.
