Game 15, Astros at Mariners – Strikeouts, As Far As the Eye Can See

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 00:15:18 +0000

Mike Leake vs. Gerrit Cole, 7:10pm Having beaten Dallas Keuchel, former Cy Young winner, the M’s were beaten in turn by future Cy Young candidate, Lance McCullers. Their reward from having split those two games? Facing Gerrit Cole, who’s been utterly dominant thus far. Perhaps no pitcher in recent memory has moved between two organizations, […]

Game 15, Astros at Mariners

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 00:39:11 +0000

Ariel Miranda vs. Lance McCullers,7:10pm The M’s use their 5th starter for the first time tonight, and the timing…could be better. Facing a very good Astros team and an excellent opposing starter, the M’s have to go to the relatively unexciting Ariel Miranda. It’s a good reminder of how important it was to win last […]

Game 14, Astros at Mariners

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 00:15:28 +0000

James Paxton vs. Dallas Keuchel, 7:10pm The Astros haven’t run away with the division yet, and head into Seattle in a virtual dead heat with the M’s, who are coming off yet another series win. I’ve said before and still believe that the Astros are comprehensively better, top to bottom, but that fact doesn’t actually […]

Game 13, Athletics at Mariners

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 20:37:15 +0000

King Felix vs. Sean Manaea, 1:10pm A belated Happy Felix Day to you and yours. Yesterday’s game was a perfect summation of the M’s and A’s path to contention: slug a bunch of dingers, and things will work out. Unfortunately for the A’s, their bullpen now appears every bit as threadbare as their rotation. The […]

Game 12, Athletics at Mariners

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 00:20:28 +0000

Marco Gonzales vs. Kendall Graveman, 6:10pm After pulling away from the A’s late, the M’s face Kendall Graveman today under the roof at Safeco. America’s Large Adult Son hit his first home run to give the M’s some breathing room, and with Ryon Healy coming back soon, that’s good to see: Vogelbach needs to separate […]

Game 11, Athletics at Mariners – Hit Enough, And You Won’t Have to Worry About Pitching

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 22:10:04 +0000

Mike Leake vs. Andrew Triggs, 7:10pm The M’s return home to kick off intra-divisional play, and they await the imminent return of guys like Ben Gamel, Mike Zunino and Nelson Cruz. All of them should play at some point on this homestand, and while the timetable for Gamel’s been pushed back a day or two, […]

Home Runs are Down; Home Runs are More Important Than Ever

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 00:03:20 +0000

A couple of weeks ago, I appended some guesses (“projections,” excuse me) to the opening day game post. Like so much of what I write here, they have fared poorly in their initial skirmishes with reality. Key among my assumptions – and it really felt more like an assumption rather than a projection – was […]

Game 9, Mariners at Royals

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 00:00:38 +0000

King Felix vs. Eric Skoglund, 5:15pm Happy Felix Day? We’ve been in a period of remarkable volatility from our once constant, implacable, king. It’s still great to look up the probables in what’s looking more like a big game (yes, yes, I know they haven’t even played 10 games yet) and see that royal name. […]

Game 8, Mariners at Royals – Two Very Similar Pitching Staffs

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 00:00:35 +0000

Marco Gonzales vs. Jakob Junis, 5:15pm The M’s head to Kansas City to take on the struggling Royals today. For all of the issues with projections and the whole “you can’t predict baseball” trope, people have noticed that the 2018 Royals were probably going to suck for about 2-3 years. Here we are in 2018, […]

Game 7, Mariners at Twins

Sat, 07 Apr 2018 17:54:15 +0000

Mike Leake vs. Jose Berrios, 11:10am Another day, another day game. This has been the strangest start to a season I can remember, purely from the logistics and scheduling of it all – and that doesn’t even get into the eagle alighting on James Paxton the other day. Not sure what it all means, but […]
