How sweet it is to be home! Or will it be sweet for our Mariners? I think yes but I have been unusually optimistic over the last week. I just think luck will finally come to this team. This team has been awful at hitting with runners in scoring position and while that has to do with the lineup (or lack there of), it also has to do with luck. They have gotten more hits in the past couple games and now it’s just a matter of bunching some together. Safeco will be a nice change for the back-end of the rotation. Hyphen is better at home too because he gets a lot of fly balls.
Anyway, I’m about to head down to Safeco but here’s a few links for those of you who aren’t lucky enough to get to see the home opener:
- Here’s Matthew’s preview of when we played Oakland last week. Not really much use in previewing this series again since we just played these guys.
- Here’s some good news from USSMariner. Too bad Pineda’s first start of the season won’t be televised anywhere. I would love to watch that.
- Geoff Baker actually had a positive outlook today. It reminded us that this season is still very early.
That’s all I’ve got for today. Thanks for reading and go Mariners!
