    Go figure...We can do well against Toronto and Texas, yet we're whoopin up on the Astro's thru the 2nd inning... Hope we can hold them off...

    They finally moved Gordon to the 9 hole - something I've been wanting them to do for over a week now... He's been horrible as a lead off hitter since the break...

    As I said in the season over thread, this fucking team and their ability to throw fools gold at you just enough to string you along.

    Entirely destroying Verlander...

    But doesn't it still feel like their bullpen is going to give up like 10? :noidea:

    Hawks play in like an hour. Even though it's fucking preseason garbage, I'm still likely to be watching that.

    Paxton isn't getting low strikes at all from this guy.

    This makes no friggin sense. How the M's are 6-0 means Verlander is dead meat today. Not what I expected at all. No getting any hopes up though cuz the M's are done as far as I'm concerned.

    I think when you beat a stud and get killed by a bunch of scrubs it comes down to concentration. It is so easy to get up against a good opponent and so easy to get complacent against a bad one. It should never happen in the pros, but it seems M's have made an art of it. That to me leads toad leadership and bad coaching.

    The Astros announcers might be more boring than Seattle's if you can believe it. They aren't even talking about the game this half inning at all.

    Don't ya just love these Mariners? No way their gonna win this game. Just a matter of time before Paxton loses it and our offense takes a hike. The stros pen is much better than our starting pitcher line up. :pound:

    A base hit with a RISP? No way that just happened.

    oops
    Just checking in and see the sacks were loaded with 2 outs and 2 runs score-Paxton pulled. Oh well

    Oakland is serious about a WC. Too bad SFB Dipoto isn't serious. We'll just watch the A's continue their run.
