Last Gasp: Mariners vs. Astros Series Preview

Photo by Tim Warner/ The Mariners return to Seattle for their last home games of the 2020 season. Somehow, they’re important. Whatever slim postseason hopes the Mariners are clinging to will be decided in this three-game series against the Astros. They head into the last week of the season four games behind the Astros for second place in the AL West and four games behind the Blue Jays for the last Wild Card spot. The odds aren’t as bad as attempting to successfully navigate an asteroid field but they’re not good either. FanGraphs and FiveThirtyEight give them about a one percent...

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ Last vestiges of playoff hopes slip through Mariners’ fingers, Padres clinch Running a long distance can do weird things to your mind. It usually starts off alright. Full of anticipation, adrenaline, and energy, a runner at the beginning of a long run quickly settles into a groove. The body moves seamlessly and simultaneously with the beat of the music. Those who instead opt to listen to podcasts or audiobooks allow their minds to find traction in somebody’s story. As the steps add up and there are still countless more in front of the runner, it can be hard...

With a disappointing 11-inning 7-4 loss Sunday, the Mariners' playoff hopes have gone from “maybe they can do it” to “minor miracle needed.”

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports Two roads diverged in a wood, and the M’s took the bad one Hello, and welcome to the second-to-last edition of Sunday baseball for the Seattle Mariners. That’s right: the season ends just one week from today. Time flies. The M’s are taking on the San Diego Padres in the rubber match of a bizarre three-game series in which the M’s are the “home team” in San Diego. After just one week ago entertaining dreams of a playoff appearance, the Mariners suddenly find themselves challenging for a top 10 draft selection in next year’s draft....

Mariners Moose Tracks, 9/20/20: Tim Anderson, Gary Hughes, and Players To Be Named Today

Photo by Michael Hickey/ It’s PTBNL day? In Mariners news... We got a few updates on some injured Mariners position players this weekend. It sounds, unsurprisingly, like Tom Murphy, Mitch Haniger, and Shed Long are all gearing up for spring training in 2021. Surgery remains an option for Shed Long Jr. to address the stress fracture in his shin. Around the league... The big news of the weekend in MLB is Justin Verlander being pegged for Tommy John surgery. There’s little precedent of a player of his age coming back with good results. someone smarter than me will definitely write...

Mariners remind you they can be fun, too, use young core to defeat super-fun Padres, 4-1

Oh to be Ty France clasped lovingly by Fernando Tatís Jr. | Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports Justus solid again, Luis Torrens continues to hit, Kyle Lewis wins ROY (of this game) As the Mariners have sagged out of the brief fever-dream of playoff contention, I have steeled myself for a barrage of losses while willing them to crawl back inside the Top 10 for draft picks. I don’t know enough about the class yet to know what number will be the cutoff between elite and merely very good, but any time you’re picking in the Top 10 you’re upping the odds significantly. However, it is much...

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports treasure each one of these games, I instruct myself sternly. TREASURE EACH ONE. It’s Saturday, and you know what that means: it’s you and me and Justus Sheffield, baybay. While not quite the comfort and safety of a Marco Gonzales start, Justus has provided stability in the rotation while improving on his 2019 performance. He’s walking significantly fewer batters, mixing in the changeup more and not relying solely on his slider to wipe away hitters, and limiting damage—batters are barreling him up just 3.9% of the time, well under the MLB average of...
