  • Just a few innings away from having first place all by ourself if Boston can hold on against the Astros.

    Felix pitched great, but he did get out of a couple big jams. If a couple at bats go the other way we probably aren't singing this same tune.

  • M's looking great. Felix was decent, less a couple inning jams. Interesting to see how they do against Boston next home stand. Zunino is garbage at the plate... rally killa..... overall pleasantly suprised....

    8 innings, 1 ER, 5 hits, 7 Ks and one BB

    That's "decent" these days?

    Kept them in the game long enough for the Rays to pull their starter and let the bats win the game. Pretty excellent performance from him, really.

  • Felix was excellent. The whole staff really pulled things together vs Tampa. The Ray's were the 2nd best hitting team (in Avg) just behind Boston going into the series. Credit where credit is due.

    I'm looking forward to Cruz going on a terror now that he's been healthy long enough to get his swing back into a groove. The rest of the guys just need to get on base around him because he's about to make up for lost time in short order I think.

    Two games in Houston, though. That park is kind of funky to hit in.

  • Off days suck when your team is fun to watch every day.

    I got back from Ancient Lakes just in time to catch the entirety of the 8th and 9th yesterday. Looked like a good win and a great way to end a Sunday afternoon M's game.

    I'm pleasantly surprised to see them at 37-22 and on top of the AL West for the time being. Can't believe they've gone 15-5 since losing Cano. I know this was one of the easiest stretches of the season, but you still gotta win the games in front of you and the M's have done that. I highly doubt this team in previous years increases their win percentage without Cano for any extended period of time.

    Were they just guessing? This is a different scouting report.....

    Gilbert uses an advanced four pitch arsenal that consists of a fastball that touches 97mph, slider, curve, and change, none of which grade lower than 50. The Florida-native threw up a 0.80 WHIP this past season en route to winning the Atlantic Sun Pitcher of the Year Award, cutting his walk rate down 1.8 K/9 and seeing his strikeout rate jump up to 12.9 K/9. He was equally impressive last summer in the Cape Cod League, where he posted a 1.72 ERA and 0.90 WHIP against the game’s top prospects. "

    I don't know, but I['m pretty sure if he's a college kid and throwing stuff out like that at 97. he isn't a 16th round pick.

  • We'll see whether it's 7-1 or 7-6 (or worse) when this is over. Don't the Astros have a tendency to score a bunch of timely runs late in the game? Hope our relief pitching keep it closer to 7-1.

    Sending him to Tacoma would be foolish. He had been good lately after he's made some adjustments to correct his terrible start to the season.

    Today was just unlucky, if you look at it carefully. The only solid hit he gave up was the first one to Kemp. After that, the next three hits that Springer, Bregman, and Altuve hit were ALL down and away, well out of the strike zone, where Zunino was actually set up at. Two of those pitches were about to hit the dirt! The Astros hitters just threw their bats at the ball hoping to make contact or foul it off and all three resulted in hits.

    When you're locating your pitches and hitting your spots but the hitters managed to eek out a hit, you just tip your cap and move on. Nicasio was good today but the Astros were just "fortunate" enough to turn some tough pitches into hits.

    It's baseball. You win some and you lose some. Luckily, we've been doing more winning than losing. Even with this game today, we were in it till the very last out. The Mariners of recent years would've been swept by the Astros and outscored 20-2 in this series.

    Split with Houston, in Houston, could've won both games, and still be in first place heading to TB? I'll definitely take that any day!

    Hopefully, we can start a new winning streak in TB. :2thumbs:

  • I agree with what is being said in here in defense of Nicasio. If you look at those pitches, they were well located. You just got to tip your hat to the Astros for those hits. However, I probably would have pulled him after the Springer double. At some point, Servais needs to go to another pitcher, regardless if the pitches were well located or not.

    I'll take a split with the Astros. Also, that relay with Haniger, Dee and Seager to throw out Kemp at third was great.

    It's really incomplete to use ERA alone to judge a pitcher. What people are trying to explain about Nicasio is that, yeah, earlier in the year he was bad (which ballooned his era). He was throwing 90-92 MPH and either couldn't find the strike zone or was serving up center-cut meatballs. However, since he's turned things around he's back up to 96 MPH and hitting his spots pitching around the plate not right now the middle. There's been a change that is obvious and has been effective. He's not going to be perfect, as no one will be over the course of the season. Diaz has 3 blown saves himself, and that's not counting games he's come in during a tie or 1 run down and given up runs. Nicasio is one of the better pitchers in the bullpen when he's right and he's been right much more than he's been off lately.

However, I probably would have pulled him after the Springer double. At some point, Servais needs to go to another pitcher, regardless if the pitches were well located or not.

    I'll take a split with the Astros. Also, that relay with Haniger, Dee and Seager to throw out Kemp at third was great.

    I was also kind of surprised that they didn't try any high heat. Fastballs at the top of the zone might have been a nice alternative to those sliders.

  • I liked that we were competitive with the world champs. In the end Cruz at the plate with two on for the win? I like those odds.

  • Been watching Healy closely the last few series. While it seems in most games he doesn't have to handle as many missiles hit right at him as do the other infielders, I love his obvious focus and intensity making sure he takes care of what he's supposed to take care of defensively at first base. And that catch of the short pop-up foul 3 or so games ago that most teams would've just let go foul being essentially between home and first, when I saw him do it, it didn't surprise me at all. He reminds me of... Earl Thomas, in a way.

    Leake's game is based on not letting hitters get solid wood on the ball. Outstanding performance tonight.

    I think our bullpen is not getting enough work lately. They're not coming out of the pen very sharp. We need a "bullpen" night.

  • Servias has got to be quicker with the hook with the game on the line when the pitcher is getting hit. He’s lucky he’s got a gold glove 3rd baseman who made a great play on the last play of the game.

    Leake pitched great. Haniger and Segura has great games with the sticks, and Gordon and Seager with the gloves.
