Servais switches up the lineup too much each game. He needs to let guys get their timing down for a few series then allow others to creep into the lineupWe are 2-2 with a run differential of -8.
Dylan Bundy who was one of MLB's worst starting pitchers last year, we made him look like an ace.
We stranded all kinds of base runners this series.
Mariners are in mid season form.
Offensively they will be fine. Winker will start hitting soon, Julio is slowly settling in. Not sure about Kelenic but we can afford to hit him at the end of the lineup if we have to.This team is not only fun to watch, I think they are a legit contender. Not just to make the playoffs. But to make it to the ALCS.
Nice to see the offense heating up.
They've already said that Brash will not get 30 starts. They're going to "monitor" his usage, which is normal for a rookie on his first full campaign. No doubt Kirby will be called up, and probably before the roster expansion. I could see where those two guys could "split" the No 5 spot for several weeks mid to late season.Offensively they will be fine. Winker will start hitting soon, Julio is slowly settling in.

The main question for me is the rotation. Ray and Gilbert, no issues there. After that it’s yet to be seen. Brash is nasty but can he put it together? Marco has been up and down since last season. We will see with Flex, his last outing was good.
At some point we will likely have an injury to the rotation. Who takes over? Sheffield? Call up Kirby? I think the team needs at least one more arm, they just need to make the move for it when the time comes.
