Seattle Mariners: 30th No More
Going to the M's game today with Tim, and it's not just the sunny weather that's got me in a good mood.
Here are the M's OBP/SLG/OPS splits, along with their OPS MLB rank (1-30), since 2010:
- 2010: .298/ .339/ .637 (30th)
- 2011: .292/ .348/ .640 (30th)
- 2012: .296/ .369/ .665 (30th)
- 2013: .310/ .401/ .711 (18th)
That sound you hear in Seattle isn't just Macklemore recording on top of Dick's; it's runs being scored. It's an exhale. It's climbing out of a deep, deep hole.
UPDATE: Oops. The M's scattered six hits over nine innings and lost 4-0. When the opposition went ahead 2-0, the game seemed lost forever. Two runs? How could anyone ever manage that? Kendrys Morales hit a rocket double to the right-field corner with nobody out in the bottom of the 2nd but only managed to get to third because of a wild pitch. After that, five singles: one in the 3rd, one in the 7th, two in the eighth and one in the ninth. Just like old times.
Kyle Seager leads the M's with a .292 average and .356 OBP; Raul Ibanez leads with 24 homeruns.
