They have won 7 of their last 10 games, this is great news. The month of May was not a good month for the northwest squad. We have since pulled ahead of the A’s in the AL West. They are still 7 games back from being a competitive force in their division, and this year, they will need to win this division if they want to play in October.
This also marks the 10 year anniversary that baseball was saved in the northwest. The Mariners came from a 0-2 game deficit to beat the Yankees in a best of 5 series. In ’95, they also made a large comeback in the month of September to win the AL West. It would be fitting to have deja-vu all over again.
The next series of games is against some forces from the NL East. If we can come away with a better than .500 record on this road trip, I will ecstatic.
