Yeah, hopefully he realizes he has a 3 run lead and can afford to be a little more aggressive.

I agree, we have a great D, let them hit the ball, they won't all be HRs ..

Throw some strikes

His homers are already used to the "See you later" call, he should fit in well.

Did anyone catch the broadcast, in the 1st, talking about Martin having a different release point in his fast ball a lot? Did I hear that right?

Sounds promising.... When we have a lineup full of middle of the order bats, that seems like a really good problem to have.

Didn't hear that, but I could have missed it.

Doesn't bode well when you can't locate your fastball though.

Well he had 30 in the first inning so things are looking up

What else are they gonna say right after they draft a dude?

"Luhnow says Astros 32nd overall pick is absolutely terrible. Will never make the big leagues. More at 10."

This what you hope to hear about a 1st round pick. I know I can look this up, but curious on how Seth Beer is doing and what the organization thinks about his prospects moving forward.

Pretty good draft strategy.

Pick a C in weak C draft that you can sign way under slot. Spend that money elsewhere.

That Luhnow guy may know what he's doing.

Does Tyler White's "little" brother play for Seattle?

Corbin's clock should be ticking

Hasn't look good at all except for that debut outing.

I'd throw in Martin at this point

He reminds me of a less effective young Lance McCullers
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Martin needs the hook before more damage is done.

When the guy hitting .056 is getting extra reps at your position I hate to say it may be time to put your condo on the market TW.

A 3 run lead and a mid 90's fastball. You ought to be just flushing that in there and challenging the hitters. Lazy junk and now you've given up 2 runs.

He can't command anything. Doesn't ever look like he is in control of the game. Seems to just kinda throw.

I bet we can probably also agree that Corbin needs an Uber X back to RR.

Hinch talked about how gassed the pen is right now before this game, and now Martin is probably getting replaced after just 4 innings. I think he gets sent down tonight and the call up someone from Round Rock for tomorrow's game. Round Rock is playing Las Vegas starting tomorrow so its not a long flight from there to Seattle.

I will say that LeBlanc is getting calls that Martin isn't.
