It was fun while it lasted.

You guys having a better week 2?

The team is 2-7. Similar start last year. It's been a pattern & not a good one.

My team as well has started out poorly. No way would I ever give up so early in the season. Takes about 6 weeks before things start to sort itself out. I'm not worried about my team despite the slow start.

St. Louis is very successful. I also wouldn't worry, If I was you. But, I've seen this dance before with the M's. 16 years with no playoff. It doesn't matter who's on the team or who's running it. It's been the same lousy results.

I'm not at all depressed. Not watching the M's will also help with that. :wink:

If this will make you feel better about the Mariners bullpen...


Here comes the Rangers bullpen.

Bullpen is thin, so what happens? Perez with 98 pitches in 5 innings. Leclerc has to go a second inning and it costs the Rangers.

Finally a game today that doesn't start at frikkin' 9pm! I miss the good ol' NL Central days when most games start at a reasonable time. These west coast road trips suck!

Welcome to my world. I hate the Rangers being in the West and have for decades. Those West Coast road trips suck for fanboy. It was even worse when the Rangers and Stars both were in West Coast divisions. I'm with you. Hate it.

Hamels only goes five. Two days after Perez goes five. This bullpen will be in tatters by the end of April.
