    A solid 13-3 win in a game that doesn't count towards the standings that don't count. :?

    Nice to hear that Cruz went yard in his first AB, along with DJ Peterson having a good game.
    Dyson manufactured a run as well with his legs.

  • I never really pay much attention to spring training as it usually doesn't mean a lot. Going to spring training is awesome though, did it as a kid about 15-20 years ago and it was a blast. Might have to try to get down there again.

    Stats don't mean a lot in ST, the work does though.

    Yeah, I went down there in 1998 and 1999 and had a blast. I recommend it to any serious baseball fan.
    Also saw the M's play in Vegas once @ Cashman field.

    I've always wanted to go too. Never worked out though. Now that I have two young boys (3 and 1) will need to make myself schedule the trip when they can appreciate it. In a few years.

    Health, thats the biggest thing. Get into playing shape and stay healthy.

    It seems theres usually one player that comes out of nowhere. hoping it's a power arm for the pen this year. Need extra help down there.

  • Well it's only spring training but at 4-1 they look decent so far. Segura is on a tear, Boog Powell is hitting great and Smyly had a good 1st outing.

    Zunino is hitting his customary .200 so he's in the groove. And Gallardo got absolutely shelled and was also wild in his debut.

    I sure would prefer Miranda in the #5 spot. I'm also wary about Felix and Iwakuma's health and decline. I thought we would've made another move for a RF spot too. I'm not convinced by any means Haniger is the answer.

    Spring training is like pre season, it doesn't mean anything...until it does. The hawks won a bunch of preseason games years back cause their roster was so deep. Their backups and backups backups were throttling people. Cautiously optimistic trader Jerry is building good organizational depth. We know the front end talents there.

    Nobody is mistaking preseason for regular season. But, if the team was 0-6 instead of 5-1 I would imagine there would be a different tone. Every pitch, every at bat "means something." Even outside of actual record there are significant signs of promise.

    The lineup has been overhauled and for the most part, early on, the new players are showing quality. Cruz and Cano do not seem to have lost any bat speed and the GM seems to have a specific plan.

    I do not think Jerry is building organizational depth. Opposite really. He just traded 2 players and DFA'd another to bring in a pitcher who is much closer to helping the main club then any of the 3 players shipped out.

    This is a brand new team, built with a lot of moving parts. So far, those parts seem to be off to a promising start.

    Feel like the Mariners always do well in preseason in the desert air then come back to Seattle and some players struggle to hit at Safeco.

    This year will be make or break depending on Cruz and Cano not getting old this year and continuing to hit the way they have, Felix being better than he was last year and Paxton finally staying healthy. On top of that hoping the pitching at the bottom of the rotation is a least competent.

    So many if's and buts at this point.

  • Is there a way to watch Mariners games if you aren't in front of your tv? I have a comcast login but there doesn't appear to be a root sports app to stream it nor an option to on comcasts app.

    I have the at bat app but it blacks out in market games.

    Just seems super inconvenient.

    Nope. Only way with the Comcast app would be if the game was on any of the ESPN networks then you could stream out of home. MLB Network isn't available in the out of home stream neither is root sports. I believe most games are aired on 710AM seattle tho

  • Anyone watching the WBC? Honestly it's the first time i've ever paid attention to Segura, and boy does he look good!

    Cruz had the big game winning homer vs the US on Friday. Segura went 3-5 with the big double that broke the game vs colombia open in the 11th inning.

    Cano has been unusually quiet.

    But all in all I am very excited for our offense this year.

  • Mariners lose 24-3.

    They give up 3 TD's and a field goal, and can only muster a field goal of their own.

    How tragic. The O-Line SUCKED.

  • Drew Smyly starting out on the DL for 2 months. Sucks after such a good offseason. He looked like he had really put everything together. I hope he can come back after the DL stint and get right back to form but we'll see. I hope the WBC didn't have anything to do with the injury.

    First I heard of it. Sucks. Team looks like it might really be improved this year. Not a great start.
