    I did add Kirby to my fantasy baseball roster prior to today’s game. I’m not disappointed.

    I honestly don't understand why the Mariners don't just go all in on pitching and defense.

    I would try and sucker a team to give up a starter for Kelenic. Somebody might believe he will be good. He won’t, but you could sucker a non contender into believing.

    I am still holding on to Marinoor hope with Haniger and Lewis coming back. Not having Haniger, our only true #3 hitter has been tough. There are still a lot of things to like about this team, but the last few weeks have been frustrating as fuck all.

    Lewis has been crushing the ball and should be a big upgrade. Julio, Haniger, Lewis, and Winker rotating and having one DH most nights is a good outfield. Since it’s the M’s, Lewis will suck when called up, but he will certainly be an upgrade over Kelenic.

    Cut bait early on Kelenic. This is 400+ at bats with a .175 average. There isn’t a player I can remember with that many AB’s with such little success that turned out to be a stud. At minimum, he’s years away from being useful.

    Get another starter in case Gonzalez and/or Flexen shits the bed and because of innings restrictions on Kirby and Logan. Kelenic is the guy that can get you a #2-3 starter.

    I’m with you in that they could still go on a run, but again, these are the Mariners.

    Everyone says the roster this year is an improvement over last year, but last year's team winning 92 games was fool's gold. That was really an 80 win team and this year probably maxes out at 85, tops.

    The one hope, as has been pointed out, is that the team is legitimately young and a couple valuable guys are out right now. The schedule for the rest of May is rough and they may find themselves 10 games under .500 by the end of the month.

    Yea I think a lot of people, including myself, are starting to see how big of a fluke last season was... and the Mariners were way further away from the playoffs than just adding a couple players (who haven't done much) to being a playoff contender. I didn't think they were winning the World Series this year, but I did think that they would be competitive night in and night out and not go through these hellish slumps like they have been.

    If they can make it through May and be .500 and we have Haniger/Lewis back maybe my optimism will grow a bit more. But when you rely on so many "what if" scenarios it is usually a high indicator you still aren't good.

    I'm joining Roadie on the dark side. Time to see what trading Kelenic might bring. Waiting on him is no longer a luxury they can afford. If he's not knocking on the door of being a legit middle of the order guy (obviously not) then they don't have a use for him. Too many other options and other needs.

    You're making it really easy to agree with the board's Quooks when it comes to their friendly disagreements with you.

    The board quooks only have a couple more controlled buys anyways before the internet they'll have access to will only be for minutes at a time and definitely be blocking this site.

    Basically every year somebody becomes a Moog and posts a "Mariners baby!" thread. And basically every year we face disappointment by May.

    Par for the course. The Mariners are a top 5 team in baseball in April and the first week of May. After that, they're a little better than the Pirates, until the last 3 weeks of the season of course. That's when they go on a run, and give you false hope going into the next season.
