the 2015 team won 53 home games.

the 2019 club is off to a great start at MMP to match or surpass that mark

Voit is below .200 but 4HR and 12 RBI. All or nothing.

That entire team is except maybe Lematheiu

If they don't hit longballs they'll struggle.

Are they flying tonight or tomorrow? Don't know how that works. Anyway go beat Seattle like a rented mule.

We are gonna look back on this series and homestand as the beginning of the championship run. And did it with not great outings from JV and Cole. It's a long season but to go from sub 500 to sweeping the Yanks, I'll take it!

I think they will fly out tomorrow since it's an off day.

How legit is SEA?

Are they just a hot team on a quick pace out of the gate or can they sustain this and be a legit contender?

They'll have to face JV and Cole, right? If those two begin to lock their starts down, we'll see how legit they are.

My gut says just a super hot team. But we'll see soon enough...

Well they certainly aren't going to play 800 ball all the way in but I'll bet they have a team to contend with. But so do we.

They're worse than they were last year. And lots of stuff broke their way last year.

I'm just amazed at how great McHugh has been on the mound. To be in the bullpen for, what 10%, of 2017 and all of 2018....and then come out like a boss in 2019. Wow...

Jake should not be getting ABs over him. It's ridiculous.
Marisnick or Tucker?

Who will have a higher WAR this season?


TED could stay in triple A all year and still have a higher WAR.



Jake is having a great start for him. His approach is better than its ever been. But check back with a larger sample size.

I also find it funny you keep going back to this comment. I said he could because Jake literally has had 5 negative war offensive seasons. He's actually negative this year even though he's playing well.
it's just just fun turning the tables & breaking your balls a little when you're wrong.

Also I don't think Tucker is anywhere near as good as most think he is.

As of the other night they had hit 33 HR in 13 games. They hit another tonight. Only team over 100 RS and no one else is even close. But they have given up more than 60. Its just a very hot hitting team and they have played KC and CWS.

Mariners win. We're going to have to do this ourselves apparently.

Same as Oakland last year, but I'm thinking SEA is blowing their wad early. No way they can keep up this pace.

No disparagement to the AL central but Seattle getting CWS and KC back to back is pretty nice for them, compared with OAK and NYY. BOS and TB are a wash as far as comparisons go.
I think we should take 2 out of 3 in Seattle, a sweep might be asking too much, but who knows. Hopefully Alex plays on Friday.

Was hoping KC could pull that out in bottom of 9th.

On another note, seeing Mondes's son come to bat sure did make me feel old.

Spots 6-9 are a black hole of hitting. If they went collectively 1-15 I wouldn't be shocked.

How about 7-15?

He's got a sub .400 OPS so I'm thinking he'll be up any day now.

Last year in mid May the Angels were in first. Then Seattle made a run early June and had a 2 game lead. They finished 23 and 14 games out by the end of the season. I wouldn't worry too much about the order this early. Seattle is more likely to be sub .500 than contend for the division.

They are 12-2 and have only scored less than 6 runs in one game totalling 110 runs playing...

4 games against 3-9 Boston who have given up 79 runs (14th in AL)
2 games against 6-6 Los Angeles Angels who have given up 45 runs
3 games at 3-8 Chicago White Sox who have given up 77 runs (13th in AL)
3 games at 2-9 Kansas City who have given up 67 runs (11th in AL)

They have have given up 69 runs (12th in AL)

Not to mention, they're already 4-1 in 1-run games. No one can keep up that kind of offensive tear for half a year much less a full year. They may be okay, but that pitching staff won't support a division title run, especially with any kind of injury.

Ready to beat their ass and put them back in their place.

"An interesting side note; that's the 14th one-run game for the Tigers already this season. Tops for any team north of the Mason-Dixon Line, whose home games are not played in a dome."

Name that movie

Little Big League. I always think of that line too whenever I see a really niche stat.
