the west coast is not our best coast.
The Mariners have won 3 of their last 13 games. 2 against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox had the bases loaded and scored no runs.
They had the third out of the ninth in their (Nick Green's) glove, and threw it 15 feet too high.
They went 2-4 on their (blessedly final) West Coast trip.
Their supposed offensive leader was given the series off...to...?
As YFSF pointed out, they're 17-16 against teams that don't rhyme with New Pork Thank Ye's.
Without that 12-game winning streak? Forget it.
This team is not intact, its offense is not its actual offense, and this is not our beautiful three-game deficit with just an +18 run differential, but it's a suck spiral all the same.
Daddy gotta win. (Again.)
