    I'll be happy with a split, at this point.

    I agree we should turn things around if Farrell makes the proper adjustments like last season.  Last season Gomes and Nava together offensively were a decent LF with weak defense.  The problem is they are both playing badly at the moment and replaceable either way.  JBJ, Grady  and Shane would give us a much better chance of winning if the kid continues to hit.

     

    With that said, again Middy is also showing us little durability, plate discipline and not the greatest 3B play while Bogy struggles playing SS so its a strong possibility of Middy being traded at some point.  All the more reason to transition kids like Betts and or Cecchini to see if they can play other positions.

    If we go into N.Y. and get swept, will that be a wake up call?  This club has not looked like world champs. They were a bad ball club in spring training. They have been a bad ball club so far this season. Hopefully, guys like Bradley and Bogaerts can help inject some life into the team. We can't keep saying that it is early in the season forever. Have to start playing better baseball. Last night, at least they showed some fight by battling back. They fell short, but maybe we can build on that.

    Actually it stay early for a long time -- two months at least.

    Well, you can be ten games behind after two months. That is a tough hill to climb.

    Yes, 10 games back after 2 months is a (moderatley) tough hill to climb.  Right now we are 1.5 games back.

    Clunky start, no doubt.  But, frustrating losses aside, I am seeing more projected good than bad:  bats in April are often inconsistent, I actually have zero doubt that the offense will pick it up.  Lester and Lackey look very strong.  And teh biggest important question marks are getting positive early answers:  Bogaerts looking like an all-star already, Sizemore looking like vintage Sizemore, and now Junior starting to lace the ball around a bit and looking great in his RF fill-in stint.

    About the only thing I am 'concerned' about that doesn't have to do with just getting mojo working is Buchholz.  But even there, I am much happier with him getting shelled in a first start of Paril on a cold night because he was underthrowing than overthrowing.

    I don't know man.  I mean, I get it.  They are not playing like World Champions at this early juncture.  But, I don't see anything to get worked up about.

    Good start for Seattle, but I fear the Mariners "will turn it around."Smile

    In other words, don't place great weight on the small sample.
