Unfortunately immediately afterwards they got swept by the Twins and went into a tailspin (my bad, guys). After 3 weeks I canceled it and they suddenly got better. Now I just wake up every morning and check my phone to see if the Mariners won. They seem to win a lot except when Felix pitches.

    So with that said, why does it seem Felix really struggles in every big game he pitches in? Happened during the 2014 stretch run too.


    He's only 30 but because he's thrown so many professional innings since he was 19, his arm is slowly tiring out-which is why he struggled the end of the '14 playoff chase also. He's been very durable but throwing 200+ innings every year for over a decade just takes its toll. Some guys can keep going longer but others can't. Just a physiological thing more than anything else. Koufax was done at 32 after logging similar inning workloads. Nolan Ryan was an anomaly.

    I get the dead arm thing but if there is no damage he can do stuff to make it stronger,I dunno if he really works out by the looks of it.Sandy K is not a good compare.He was pitching with horrible elbow pain for the last 5 years he played
    5 era titles,4 Cy Youngs,4 no hitters..He was throwing major heat till the end and Nolan was too at 46 yrs old.Felix is the best pitcher the Mariners have had for a long time but he doing things that indicate something is wrong like those walks
    and I just hope it can be fixed for next year otherwise it might be near the end.

    Orioles beat the Blue Jays.

  • No score after 3.5 innings. Neither team seem interested in getting anything going offensively. For crying out loud, Ms, anything short of a sweep just isn't going to be enough.

  • Listening on the radio... top of the 9th. If Diaz blows another one, I'd strip him of closer duties. Cishek has been far more consistent this month.

    Also, slight knock on Servais... every game is a playoff game - why not have someone warming up in the pen at the first sign of trouble?

    Hope Diaz can get out of the jam. Must win.

  • And then Diaz strikes out the side. NICE!

    (phew!)

    If we win out, we just need Baltimore and/or Toronto to lose their weekend series.

  • Intersting that Toronto is now tied with Baltimore. Toronto has a real tough series at Fenway. Boston is going to be going for home-field advantage. They could very well go 1-2 or 0-3. Who knows what to expect with Baltimore at the Yankees. How crazy would that be if only one team made the playoffs from the AL East. I have a tough time seeing Detroit dropping more than one. They get the worst team in baseball and then a make-up game against the Indians in what could be a meaningless game for them.

    Ok Taijuan, don't let us down. Probably one of the biggest games of his career tomorrow. It's really too bad we couldn't beat the Astros on Tuesday. Decent chance that game costs us playoffs.

  • Good clutch win for the M's tonight. Nice bomb by Zunino and solid pitching from everyone. Need to take care of business and win all 3 left to just have a chance. Elimination number down to 2. They can do it though.

    To force at least a game 163 tiebreaker, Balt or Tor need to lose 2 out of 3 and Det needs to lose 1 out of 4. Bizarre things have happened many times before in the final weekend of the season but the M's have to keep fighting and sweep Oak to have any shot. Walker's up next. Get it done!

  • Yeah, Toronto losing to Baltimore was actually probably better for us. Now we have two teams that we can catch up to.

    Sweeping the As would mean that we just need a series loss from one of them. Winning three of four from the As means one of them would have to get swept. Basically, keep winning, and we have a decent shot at getting game 163 out of the season.

    I think you forgot about Detroit. We would need them to lose at least one of their final games, unless both Baltimore and Toronto lose at least 2 out of 3.

    In short, multiple tiebreaker games. All would count as regular season.

    Don't quote me on this, but I've read that in the event of a 3 way tie for the 2nd berth, Sea would play the winner of Det-Balt at Seattle. The winner would be the 2nd wildcard.

    4 way tie would be really wild, albeit unlikely.

  • ^^^ thanks for the info West TX Hawk.

    Detroit already smacking Atlanta. Up 3-0 early. Boston out to an early 1-0 lead over Toronto, and the Baltimore game is scoreless. Some pretty bad weather on the eastcoast, hopefully they can finish them tonight.

    Not looking good at all. That's the problem with leaving it up to other teams than taking it for yourself. They had plenty of opportunities down the stretch to make up ground and failed. And it seemed the games we lost, the teams we were chasing lost as well, kinda keeping us all close. Just a bummer again. Gonna miss the wild card by a game or two depending on the next two games. Have to wait another year. Ugh....

  • I did forget about Detroit.

    Not a great night, but assuming the Ms hold on, that is most important. Toronto lost, so assuming the Ms sweep, we just need Toronto and Detroit to drop another game apiece, right?

    They also play Cleveland on Monday because yesterday's game got rained out. Lets just hope Cleveland has something to play for by then. Unfortunately, Yanks are shutting down Tanaka, so he won't even start tomorrow against Baltimore. I don't see Baltimore losing their last two games, so at this point, yeah, we need to hope for another Toronto loss and at least one more Detroit loss which I think will happen. I'm confident in us sweeping Oakland.

  • Wild Card Teams GB

    Baltimore 88 72 W3
    Toronto 87 73 L3
    Detroit 86 73 - 0.5 W3
    Seattle 86 74 -1.0 W3

    Ok guys it's really getting interesting now. Another great win tonight to stay alive and just 1 game back of Toronto. If the M's win both of their final games and Detroit and Toronto lose 1 game, M's would force a tiebreaker game. Baltimore need not be considered at all under that scenario.

    Detroit has 3 games left so maybe Cleveland can beat them on Monday. While it's possible the M's could lose 1, that would require Toronto to lose both of their final 2 games and Detroit losing twice. It's also possible Baltimore could drop their final 2 and everything could get bizarre, but no matter what, Seattle has to take care of business Sat and Sun. Their elimination number is 2, so if they lose once and Toronto wins, M's are eliminated. Iwakuma on the hill tomorrow.

  • I agree with Cyrus, I don't like Toronto's chances at all.

    I think today is the best chance Detroit has at dropping a game. Jordan Zimmerman is pitching for them, he's been pretty bad all year, and is making his first start since injuring himself a few weeks ago. Verlander most likely pitches for Detroit tomorrow. Although Atlanta does send their ace, Tehran, to the mound tomorrow. Unfortunately I think the game on Monday might be useless for Cleveland. At this point, we need to be rooting for Cleveland everyday, so that Monday game will be meaningful.

    Very slim chance Baltimore drops their last two games, but take it one game at a time I guess. On a good note, Miley starts tonight. Too bad Yanks shutdown Tanaka.

    Happ pitches for Toronto against Rodriguez who has been horrible this year. Tomorrow is a matchup of aces, Price vs Sanchez.

    Get it done today Iwakuma. Why couldn't we play like this all year? Just noticed, we send King Felix to the mound on Sunday. Normally I'd feel great about him in a spot like this, but not this year.

    Agreed. Iwakuma just hasn't been clutch. Really wish Servais went with Storen to start the 4th.
