OBFMAN! Blow outs are FUN! Sure wish they could have spread out a few of these runs to a couple of those As games... But I'll take it!6 hours 37 min ago
rick82I'm at a company retreat, I check the score and....THIS! Awesome!!!!6 hours 58 min ago
SABR MattOr...the Mariners could score 10 runs in 2 innings and make me look like an idiot. That works too. LOL6 hours 59 min ago

GLSSo are the Mariners planning on scoring again?7 hours 50 min ago
SABR Mattseason DEFINITELY over.8 hours 27 min ago
rick82Lol, Mojician.9 hours 16 min ago
mojicianIt seems like SSI has been pressing a little bit.9 hours 20 min ago
mojicianIts actually an optimistic thing OBF, if we take a break off the excruciating Mariners playoff pressure to talk V-Mart and stuff, the 8 game win streak that will clinch this thing will be a pleasant surprise. Reverse psychology is appropriate to chillax bloggers who get too wound up and start grinding on their posts.11 hours 52 min ago
OBFGahhhh! What am I even talking about! ::Slaps self in the face:: We are still in the midst of a playoff push! We aren't eliminated yet! Free Agent Talk should be for December! Lets Go Mariners, beat the Angels!12 hours 41 min ago
OBFV-Mart is already 35... and coming off a career year... :/ I would sign him, but my fingers, toes, and eyes would be crossed... :) What about Billy Butler? Dude is only 28... Does KC pick up his 12.5 million dollar option? Does he bounce back from this, his worst year in the majors? What about Fat Ichiro? He is primed to come be a DH... and also is only 28... What about Melky Cabrera, he is only 29 and wouldn't have to just be DH? I guess that would be my starting short list, V-Mart, Country Breakfast, Kung-Fu Panda, Melky, or the Cuban Thomas.12 hours 42 min ago
SABR MattThe trouble with Vic Martinez is that he's coming off a career year and would likely force us to pay for that career year times 7. Would love to have him though, don't get me wrong. :)13 hours 6 min ago
MtGrizzlyVictor Martinez will be signing his last deal in the off season. Signing him would probably be a mistake but I'm ready to have a DH that can actually hit again.13 hours 33 min ago
SABR MattI don't think this is a GM skill issue OR a luck issue. I think our ballpark is not possible to build a balance offense in because players are inherently selfish in a selfish business and will not come to Seattle on short or medium length deals to watch their stats get crushed and lose money on the next deal. Either they sign here on their last ever deal (Cano)...or they sign here because they're desperate (everyone else)...no one actually wants to be here.15 hours 56 min ago
SABR MattCruz didn't want to be in Seattle. Period. Nothing we could do on that score, as you already note...and that is the tale of the Mariners. No good righty slugger would ever want to play here. Ever.16 hours 3 min ago
jemanjiWhat great comments Gordon. :: golf clap ::16 hours 16 min ago
Gordon GrossWe're 16-26 in 1-run games, and that's essentially a random coin-flip stat. I don't think it's QUITE random, as you're helped by having XBH-dudes on your team who can scare you up a run more easily, but regardless: that's where the playoffs are. If we'd gone 20-22 like Texas, we're solidly in the playoffs. We're back to that unlucky or incompetent offense question there.18 hours 25 min ago
Gordon GrossBased on what Cruz is doing for the Orioles, I'd say not getting him is when we lost the West. :) We're only 2 games out of the playoffs. We'd have won a couple more games with Cruz in the lineup instead of Smoak/LoMo/Hart/Romero, but we could have won those 2 games with a lot of different people. Just not the ones we had.18 hours 28 min ago
