Mariners need to capitalize on ‘LASTros factor’ while they have chance

We’ve already seen the supposed “Astros factor” — or “LASTros Factor” if you will — come into play this early season and the Mariners had best start making it work to their advantage.

The Lastros, miraculously, don’t have the worst record in all of MLB despite arguably having one of the worst teams of all-time. Somehow, Jeffrey Loria and his crew have managed to make the Miami Marlins even worse so far, but the season is still young.

Anyhow, the Mariners managed to drop two of three to the Lastros in Seattle while the rest of baseball was going 12-3 against the Houston nine. The Mariners rectified things a tiny bit last night with a fairly routine 7-1 victory, which will have to become more frequent for Seattle against the Lastros as we see just how this horrible baseball team impacts the rest of the AL West.

So far, at least, we’ve seen the impact within the division.
