The Mariners seem to be very productive on offense. Either that or the Red Sox are really bad. The rangers have put up 8 on the Cubs. Our bottom three in the order have produced nothing (pudding, catcher, and Kemp/marisnick), so they need to get it together. Hopefully we'll see something tomorrow.

Who said I was panicking? My point is the division is going to be slighty more competitive this year. Not as much margin for error, so can't start out in a hole.

It's really too early to say even that. I expect the division to be much less competitive because of Oakland's aberrant, half-season hot streak last year.

Last season we came out of the gates struggling on offense too... people started jumping off the cliff. We won 103 games

Yeah I think we've done this a few years in a row. I remember in 2017 Juila had to eat grasshoppers to spark the offense in Seattle.

That's a good reminder for all of the folks that started watching baseball in September of that year.

It's always interesting to see how long it takes for the overreacters, joke overreactors and rational-perspectivists to start clashing.

The timing is probably consistent with the first two game losing streak of the season.

Overreact if we go into Arlington and lay an egg. Our offensive struggles at the Trop are real. I was hoping we had broken through after shelling Snell, but we just got some good wood on a few balls for home runs. We still aren't stringing together hits and producing runs. It's a terrible stadium for our offense for some reason.

It's not. The Mariners are losing 100+ and the Rangers will approach that.

You may not be panicking, but basing opinions on a 2% sample size is silly.

Yes. That probably about the time every year. Unless you start at minimum 6-0.

Shorter throw to first for Diaz. Excellent managing by Hinch.

a couple of notes for Hinch...

the most AB's in a season for Diaz is 460; and his most games played is 130.

he's not an everyday player

Just wait until Correa Ks in his first AB and this board rips into him. Only to go oppo taco later for the game winner.

Is there anything suggesting that Hinch plans on using him as an everyday player?

If Correa is battling injury, why not let him start as a DH today?

With Correa starting today, I really wish Hinch would put in our "starting" lineup, whatever that may be, but it dang sure includes Brantley and altuve at 2nd.

Shouldn't Diaz rest his arm? He's got to be worn out making all those errors... he deserves a few rest days.

TB is the worst place for baseball I've ever been to, and it's not close. It's like trying to watch baseball in an office, but the office lacks any character. I'm quick to forgive not playing well there. It would be nice to play better in the opening series but that place just sucks.

Could use Brantley's bat guess he will have to settle for a pinch hit home run

We go through this discussion at the beginning of every season.

Hinch likes to get everyone ABs right from the start. He thinks it's better in the long to get guys involved early. The first week or so is always a lot of shuffling.

Things will settle down and the guys will rake.

Could Altuve be at DH because of the line drive he took?

Not playing Brantley is stupid AF. I don't care why.

Lookie there Altuve switches to the tomahawk bat. That's new for him, right?

Miley's ERA? 9.00

He sucks too.

3 + games in and Correa is hitless on the season.

The long offseason made me forget how often the other team's seeing eye grounders and bloopers seem to find land and ours seem to find gloves.
