The delta column is based on the last recorded figures which was two series ago. The Series Preview did not run last time thanks to the holiday weekend and the early start on Monday.

What, you want more on the Mariners? No. Go pay attention to one of the organizational teams in the playoffs. It's way more fun.

Fri Sep 10, 19:05: David Pauley vs. Jered Weaver

Sat Sep 11, 18:05: Felix Hernandez vs. Ervin Santana

Sun Sep 12, 12:35: Jason Vargas* vs. Dan Haren

It worries me that David Pauley has been so serviceable as a Mariner starter. I don't mind picking up relievers off the scrap heap, but starters? I don't think I will ever trust Pauley. Fun note: By Statcorner, Pauley's groundball rate is higher than Felix's in 2010.

The difference between 2009 Jason Vargas and 2010 Jason Vargas is that this year he is throwing more strikes. He currently possesses the exact same whiff rate (7.7%), but his overall strike rate has risen about four points. His batted balls are very similar. Two outs away from 170 innings on the year, my hope is that Vargas is shut down just as soon as some relief starters can be procured from the minors.

Ditto on Fister as well. Better safe than sorry at this point. They've both established themselves as early favorites for the 2011 rotation. Nothing either does in the next three or four starts will change that. Put Sean White and Garrett Olson into the rotation for funsies!
