Mariners thumb nose at projections, clinch winning record

Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports ZiPS, PECOTA, Steamer, all have crumbled before Chaos Ball If you’re coming here from a jubilant headline and the news that the Mariners have secured a winning season expecting some ground in the Wild Card race, I’m sorry to say that you’ll be disappointed after this next sentence. With the Blue Jays, Red Sox, and Yankees all pulling out wins, everything that was out of Seattle’s control broke the wrong way. Not that this came as a huge shock, though. After all, even with a nice series against the Royals, the repeated...

Photo by Michael Zagaris/Oakland Athletics/ a winning season is within our grasp! Playoff hopes may be fading fast (any time you have to root for the Rangers and Mets is an uphill battle), but a win tonight would give the Mariners a winning season for the first time since 2018. It borders on trite at this point, but I think everyone here would have been pleasantly surprised if they had been told in March that Seattle would be on the cusp of clinching a winning record in mid-September. Tonight is also a big opportunity to once again catch the A’s in the division...

Mariners record ten hits, coincidentally win baseball game

Mariners record ten hits, coincidentally win baseball game

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports That’s all it takes, huh? The 2021 Mariners have been surprising for a couple of reasons. The first, and most obvious, has been their success in the standings. Run differential is imperfect, and its value has been talked to death, but the team’s -60 run differential is a bit more representative of the Mariners team most of us projected going into this season than their 81-69 record. Still more surprising, I would argue, has been the degree to which the 2021 Mariners have been likeable. The personalities have been fun, the top of the order...

Moore has five hits in his past 11 at-bats. It’s an incredibly small sample size, but it’s something to build on.

Photo by Ed Zurga/ In which the Mariners commence a final, desperate two-week push for the playoffs The Mariners have had themselves a hell of a season. Their playoffs odds look slim, with Fangraphs giving them just a 0.7% chance and Fivethirtyeight giving them an equivalent 1% chance. That they were in the conversation as late as September, however, speaks volumes to the overperformance of the club in relation to their preseason expectations. Assuming they’re unable to claw their way back and give themselves a shot at a miracle, these next two weeks will be about two...

The Battle for Second: Mariners at Athletics Series Preview

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports The Mariners head to Oakland for a four-game set against their division rival. The last time the Seattle Mariners faced the Oakland Athletics, it capped off a two-game sweep in late August to draw Seattle within three games of the second Wild Card spot, putting themselves in position to overtake and subsequently slip back behind their southern competitors in the coming weeks. Fast forward nearly a month and things look mostly the same, just with less time remaining on the clock. Seattle’s Wild Card hunt, given their four game gap to...

Gilbert was taken 14th overall by the Mariners, although it could be argued Kowar, taken 33rd (a compensation pick for Lorenzo Cain) actually had more name recognition, having been teammates at Florida with Brady Singer, the Royals’ first-round pick (18th overall). Singer had the most name recognition of the three, having been talked about as a potential top-5 overall pick with...
