GLSYikes! What happened tonight?2 hours 20 min ago
rick82Well, we have our stopper going tomorrow. That's what a stopper is for. To stop. Stuff like this. Right?3 hours 3 min ago
Bat571In a way, if they fall short in the very last week, it might help make them each and all hungrier next year.4 hours 28 min ago
Bat571If Miller, Ackley, Zunino, Saunders, Morrison, and Jackson all commit to being in shape and hitting like they have in their good months for more of the season, Cano rebounds a bit, Seager keeps it up, and Felix, 'Kuma, Paxton, Elias, and Walker commit to coming in to again be the best staff in baseball, it will be fun again next year. Taylor, Jones, Sucre, and Romero need to be ready for anything asked of them, and able to give the others breaks without a performance falloff. It's actually a pretty nice core - but a Tomas or Kemp sure wouldn't hurt!4 hours 30 min ago
Bat571Hicks, Marlette, Peterson, Lara, Marte, TySmith, Kivlehan, Blash, Guerrero, Henry, Pike, Sanchez, Morban, Pizzano, and more at Jackson or Tacoma next year. Wilson, Jackson, Reinheimer, Gohara, Diaz, Missaki, Morgan, O'Neill, Fontaine, and more finding it at Bakersfield or Clinton. The M's have avery good chance at being better next yer and better still in 2016. Looks like they miss it this time, but it isn't like the Phillies or Yankees with the cupboards bare.4 hours 47 min ago
Gordon GrossJust so, bat: meaningful games. I hope those kinds of games mean something to the bean counters and not just the players and fans.4 hours 54 min ago
Gordon GrossThis team was only built to go as far as its pitching would take em, Ice. But it's a good experience for all of them to have: playing with a purpose instead of playing out the string. They should be better for it next year, and will understand what it takes. Can't rely on a 128 OPS+ to give you even a WC shot.4 hours 55 min ago
Bat571Meaningful games. And the meaning the M's front office ought to be seeing is that the team is still short on offense, and is tired. Work hard in the off-season, sign a Tomas or, at least, a Rios, trade for a Kemp or Van Slyke, keep developing prospects, hope Hultzen can help by mid-2015, but in any case, commit to winning.4 hours 57 min ago
Gordon GrossWhen those of us who watched Paxton in the minors say, " there will be days he can't throw it in the ocean"... THIS is what we meant. On the plus side, he tends to be a killer the rest of the time, so his implosions only cost you one game. I might even prefer my starters to be nails or worthless, rather than mediocre all the time. On the minus side... we REALLY needed this game.4 hours 58 min ago
IcebreakerXThe M's were running on NOX the whole season, which isn't a good way to run a ball club. This isn't a GOOD ball club. It's an okay ball club that was over-performing.5 hours 26 min ago
MtGrizzlyIt. Is. Over. The M's just ran out of gas down the stretch.5 hours 36 min ago
Tacoma RainSlip sliding away... the closer our destination, the more likely we are slip sliding away... :(5 hours 48 min ago
Gordon GrossBrutal. Just BRUTAL.5 hours 55 min ago
DaddyOAnd so we appear to be slipping into wild card race oblivion. Down 5-1. If we lose this game, our record since September 6th, our high water mark, will be 4-10. Not the way to capture a postseason berth.5 hours 58 min ago
rick82And...K-Pax implodes in the first inning.6 hours 38 min ago
rick82Indians take the suspended game. We are now 1 back of the Royals. But 1.5 ahead of Indians. So, yeah, what Matt said.7 hours 47 min ago
rick82Those are Mariner stats only.8 hours 7 min ago
rick82I said below I would rather see Smoak at DH than Morales. Holy Smokes, I can't believe how identical their season numbers are - the two have become indistinguishable: Smoak: .202/.276/.340 Morales: .204/.274/.335. Smoak has 7 more RBIs in 63 more at bats.8 hours 10 min ago
SABR MattCleveland is definitely a problem. They are hot lately..9 hours 51 min ago
