The Mariners are this years team of destiny

68 posts in this topic

How can they not be? 

Approaching 20 games over .500

Lost one of their best players to a drug suspension.  

21-9 in one run games.  The fact that they've even played 30 one run games in their first 67 is crazy.  

6-0 in extra innings

+7 vs. their run differential.  

Wade Leblanc has and era of 2.45 in 8 starts.  James Pazos and Chase Bradford have a sub 2 era

did I miss anything?  

while their differential doesn't support their record, we've seen teams sustain these paces for individual seasons.  Particularly when they have a good offense and bullpen.  Which they do. 

On top of that, we know that the M's have the worst farm in baseball so whatever is left will be used to help this team make a run.  My guess is that they acquire the best starting pitcher they can get at the deadline or sooner.  Maybe even two of them.  If I had to guess, one of them would be Cole Hamels for a package that includes Kyle Lewis as well as JA Happ for Evan White and Sam Carlson.

Really?  you guys would rather see the Dipoto and Servais led M's win with their smoke and mirrors over teams that have actual talent?  

Yes.

Every year Boston wins is a loss for humanity. 

And come on. I assume you live out west. Do you really want the Dodgers to win over the Mariners?

I mean I hate the M’s. What I want to see if them fall back to earth and the Angels start playing like they are callable of. 

 

I hate Dipoto as much as the next guy but we need to focus on ourselves and try to turn this shit show around

There isn't a thing in the world I'd rather see less than the Dodgers winning the World Series.

If the M's win, it'd suck but I'd get over it.

I would never get over seeing a dodgers WS victory. I wasn't born in 1988 luckily

If the Ms do make the playoffs, it will be as 2nd WC and they will get crushed by either BOS or NYY.  Odds are increasing that they will get the 2nd WC though because the Angels are their only real threat and the only thing the Angels have going for them is a solid rotation and Mike Trout which is likely not enough.  Luckily, after the Ms lose the 2nd WC, 2019 will present them with a barren farm system and more competition

This isn’t about the Angels record, we are about where we should be.   They should be based on their stats and run differential right with us.

I too would rather see anyone other than the M's win (except Oakland).  If the Red Sox or Yankees don't win - their fans won't be any less obnoxious. 

I will always hate Oakland the most.  That's just me.

Do you live on the East Coast?

There are teams I generally hate... A's, Dodgers, Yankees, Red Sox, etc.

And there are teams I hate in any given year, depending on circumstances.  Texas has been one of those teams.... This year it's the Mariners.
