I guess Ken Griffey Jr. saw it coming and decided to get out before it got worse. Well Mariners fans it has gotten worse. Only one win in the last week has dropped Seattle to a division worst 23-39 and 11 games back of the Rangers.
I can offer fans a three pieces of solace. Number 1. At least you aren’t Baltimore. Number 2. Cliff Lee has delivered since his return from the DL. He is 4-3 with a 2.88 ERA and the most amazing stat is in 66 IP he has struck out 60 and walked only 4! Number 3. Josh Wilson has picked it up at the plate. The Mariners short stop has brought his average up to .307 and is one of a few Seattle hitters that is finally producing.
The Mariners finish up their series with San Diego this afternoon, and then head to St. Louis to face the Cardinals.
Enjoy watching the Mariners pitching staff as there is a good one assembled in Seattle. Look ahead to the off season already to see what the M’s can do to bring some offense into the line up!
Have a good one!
