What a bizarre couple of baseball games we've had lately. Friday gave us Brad Miller's first game and a Mike Zunino walk-off. Yesterday had that pitching/DH debacle. Michael Saunders and Dustin Ackley are injured and unavailable to hit. You would think that given a certain number of games in a closed set, anomalies like last night would be countered with quick, textbook multi-hit 3-2 games where nothing too interesting happens. But then again...

Must not talk about roster construction. Must not talk about roster construction. Must not...

Mariners:






This year, Edwin Jackson is 3-10 with a 5.84 ERA. His xFIP is 3.88 which is kind of weird, but then you realize that he has a pretty crummy defense behind him, so he's often on his own. Despite a slow start, he's actually been pretty manageable this year, with about 8 Ks/9 and a BABIP of .340, which again, can be chalked up to the Cubs' defense. But his LOB% is at a career-low 58.9%, so if the Mariners want to jump on him, they are going to need to get on base and do it a lot.

Discuss! How do you all feel about the Thames trade? Who are we seeing play their final games in Mariners uniforms?
