Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports the final installment in the cole irvin saga Now that the Mariners have clinched a winning record, they can set their sights on loftier achievements like, say, finishing ahead of the A’s in the standings. In order to do so, the M’s will need to continue to shell their favorite punching bag tonight: none other than Cole “A Team Like That” Irvin himself. Here are the numbers on just how well his three starts against the Mariners have gone for him so far: A key piece here is the steady decline in innings pitched. If...

The thrill of >81 victories

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ It’s nice to win a little bit. The Seattle Mariners have always encouraged their fans to appreciate the little things, albeit often in the way someone “encourages” a dog to take their worms medication by sticking it in a ball of deli cheese. When the final out of the regular season has been recorded each of the past 19 seasons, the Mariners have packed their bags and headed home. So too have we, shifting our attention to the playoffs free of serious emotional investment, or perhaps putting MLB in the closet altogether, to be dusted...

Here’s what’s happening around baseball on this Wednesday as the M’s try to secure the series victory against the A’s. In Mariners news... They’ve got to bring him back to give him a shot at the postseason. Kyle Seager on staying in the postseason hunt:“We all want to play for something bigger than ourselves, and me especially.

Mariners thumb nose at projections, clinch winning record

Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports ZiPS, PECOTA, Steamer, all have crumbled before Chaos Ball If you’re coming here from a jubilant headline and the news that the Mariners have secured a winning season expecting some ground in the Wild Card race, I’m sorry to say that you’ll be disappointed after this next sentence. With the Blue Jays, Red Sox, and Yankees all pulling out wins, everything that was out of Seattle’s control broke the wrong way. Not that this came as a huge shock, though. After all, even with a nice series against the Royals, the repeated...

Photo by Michael Zagaris/Oakland Athletics/ a winning season is within our grasp! Playoff hopes may be fading fast (any time you have to root for the Rangers and Mets is an uphill battle), but a win tonight would give the Mariners a winning season for the first time since 2018. It borders on trite at this point, but I think everyone here would have been pleasantly surprised if they had been told in March that Seattle would be on the cusp of clinching a winning record in mid-September. Tonight is also a big opportunity to once again catch the A’s in the division...

Mariners record ten hits, coincidentally win baseball game

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports That’s all it takes, huh? The 2021 Mariners have been surprising for a couple of reasons. The first, and most obvious, has been their success in the standings. Run differential is imperfect, and its value has been talked to death, but the team’s -60 run differential is a bit more representative of the Mariners team most of us projected going into this season than their 81-69 record. Still more surprising, I would argue, has been the degree to which the 2021 Mariners have been likeable. The personalities have been fun, the top of the order...
