Daily coverage of the Mariners during the season and all year long.

Out of the frying pan and…

The Mariners are thrown right back into the fire tonight against the New York Yankees and none other than Chien Ming Wang, who owned them last season. I’m at the airport in Cleveland waiting for my flight, so not much time to write. All I’ll say is, the M’s got too many of their hits last night with two out and none on. A good way not to get rallies going. What can they do about it? Same thing that’s been said all year. Be more selective in the pitches they swing at. I don’t know how many times the inning was nearly over last night before I’d have time to finish writing a summary of the previous inning. Old habits are hard to break, but this team has to start finding ways to get the leadoff guy on. Ichiro did it in the ninth and it paid off. This has been a problem all season though. It’s either no one gets on until there are two out, or the team gets a bunch of guys on with no out and wastes it. Have to start doing the in-between stuff.
In case you missed it last night, here’s the video tour of Progressive Field once again.
