Good thing it was Hisashi Iwakuma on the bump, because the offense was back to its Safeco self. That's not going to work this weekend.
Dick's Deluxe: Hisashi Iwakuma (.564 WPA)
That chicken Big Mac knockoff Burger King is selling now: Stefen Romero (-.120 WPA)
God, that game. Iwakuma was brilliant, and it was discouraging to see the offense revert to what we'd seen before the M's went on this tear.
Some questions? Questions.
1. Fernando Rodney. This guy. How are you feeling? Is he genuinely not good right now, or does he gear up when he needs it?
2. When this quick homestand ends on Wednesday, where are the Mariners in the standings? Who's ahead or behind—and how many games?
3. What's your favorite baseball book?
