Humble travellers we are, uncertain of what lies before us as we set out on a journey into the Western lands. And the words of the poet are ringing in my ears:

Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate

The only way forward is forward.

The Mariners are in first place in the AL West, with a 48-41 record, and the first question that comes to mind is - how? Much of it is just plain good luck - they've gone 18-9 in the one run games. They don't score runs - even fewer than the Blue Jays - but they don't give up many either. In fact, no team in the AL allows fewer runs. T-Mobile Park has a lot to do with that, of course.


Fri 5 July - Gausman (6-7, 4.75) vs Castillo (6-9, 3.87)
Sat 6 July - Rodriguez (0-3, 4.63) vs TBD
Sun 7 July - Berrios (8-6, 3.63) vs Kirby (7-6, 3.32)
