Mariners snubbed (for now) with All-Star selections
Major League Baseball announced the reserve rosters for the All-Star teams yesterday, and they included a few surprises. The biggest being the absence of a certain Tyler Lawrence France.
M's Beat O's in Fun Fashion, and How OBP Can Be Lower than BA
Last Wednesday I saw my first in-person M's win of the season (I was 0-3), and it was pretty definitive, 9-3 over Baltimore. All the damage was done in two innings.
Horrid homestand hobbles M's
It was not a happy homecoming. After dropping seven of nine games on the recent road trip, the Mariners were looking forward to righting the ship at home. Didn't work out that way. On the seven-game homestand against the Rays and the Phillies, the M's managed just two wins, and those by the skin of their teeth. The club heads back out on the road now—to take on powerhouses in New York and Toronto before closing the trip in Boston—bruised and battered, looking for anything to help them bet back to winning games.
Road trip roundup
The Mariners' just-completed road swing through Florida and Houston contained a little good, a lot of bad, and even some ugly. Riding high at the end of their last homestand, they began the trip four games over .500 and in first place. They return home a game under break-even and in third place, three games back of the Angels in the American League West. A good time was not had by all.
