Whodathunk that the Mariners would be leading the majors in WINS after the first ELEVEN games?!? Granted, they’ve played TWO more games than every other team but the A’s but, still . . .
Going in to today’s rubber match w/the White Sox, this was the stat leader board . . .
Yes! YOUR Seattle Mariners were leading in ALL the above offensive categories! (plus doubles and stolen bases – which didn’t show within the screen print) 🙂
And, AFTER today’s game . . .
the homer streak is alive! ELEVEN straight games with a home run!
The Mariners have 27 home runs in their first 11 games, which is the most by an MLB team since the Cardinals hit 29 in 2000. (Though worth noting the Dodgers have 22 in their first 9 games going into tonight's game at Coors Field).
The #Mariners have scored 85 runs in 11 games. The Mariners become the 6th team in the expansion era (1961-c) to score at least 85 runs in the first 11 games of a season (last: 1999 Cleveland Indians, 90 R).
(my current commute, along with planning my daughter’s wedding – which we are hosting this September – makes for very little time to actually watch/listen to the games, let alone blog about them)
Hard to believe a month of games is already in the books!
16-11 overall and 2nd in the ALW

NOTE: Starters Mike and Felix each had ONE really bad game, James and Marcos each had TWO bad games and Erasmo has struggled in both of his TWO starts so far . . . hopefully, everyone can continue to stay healthy and get in the groove soon! The bullpen on the other hand – with a few exceptions has been great and Edwin has been other-worldly 🙂
Good tweets . . .
