Mariners who have ever hit more homers than the 44 Nelson Cruz hit this year: Ken Griffey Jr. Five times. That's it.
It'll be fun to see what Jerry Dipoto can do as GM without a meddlesome owner.
The Mariners have the second-best record in baseball this month (13-6), behind only the Cubs.
Nothing kills the Hail Mary hopes of a late playoff surge like losing two of three at home to the Rockies.
The Mariners have won nine of their last 14 games.
Let's hope their next hire is better than Jack Zduriencik. Or Bill Bavasi. Man, that's a lot of bad GMing.
After seeing Justin Verlander hit a wall at age 30-31, I can't help but be worried about Felix Hernandez. He's only 29, but he came up earlier, by age, than Verlander and is having his worst season since 2007. Every player is different, though, and my concern could easily be unfounded.
Seriously, stranger things have happened. They have a chance, even if it's a longshot. There are almost six weeks left and they are 6 1/2 games out of the second wild card.
I keep seeing GMs removed from their post and wondering how it's not Jack Zduriencik.
Nelson Cruz already has 31 home runs. The last time the Mariners had a guy with at least 30 in a season was 2009, when it was Russell Branyan. Before that: 2006 with both Raul Ibanez and Richie Sexson.
