Mariners offense scraping the bottom (latest evidence)

I’m at Safeco Field for this titanic battle between the Indians and Mariners. Alert reader ToledoMariner noted to me in an e-mail that the Mariners, entering Saturday’s play, rank 30th in the major leagues in virtually every key offensive category. He’s absolutely right:

Runs: Mariners 435 (next lowest, Pittsburgh 468).

Hits: Mariners 1,058 (next lowest, Pittsburgh 1,067)

Home runs: Mariners 83 (next lowest, Oakland 86)

Doubles: Mariners 192 (next lowest, San Diego 203)

Total bases: Mariners 1,527 (next lowest, Houston 1,630)

Runs batted in: Mariners 410 (next lowest, Pittsburgh 453)

Batting average: Mariners .236 (next lowest, Pittsburgh .240)

At-bats per home run: Mariners 53.8 (next lowest, Oakland 53.1)

Extra-base hits: Mariners 289 (next lowest, Houston 316)

On-base percentage: Mariners .300 (next lowest, Houston and Pittsburgh tied at .303)

Slugging percentage: Mariners .340 (next lowest, Houston .360)

OPS: Mariners .640 (next lowest, Houston.663)

But there’s some good news. The Mariners have 14 triples, which ranks 29th in the majors. The Angels have only 12 three-baggers. So there’s that to build on.
