Now that’s more like it.
Following a second straight series win, the Mariners have climbed out of The Hole and find themselves firmly within striking distance. Much of that has to do with the surprising decency of the starting rotation. Even more has to do with right fielder, and guy Boston Red Sox fans are going to be complaining about beating out “BENNY” for Rookie of the Year in several months, Mitch Haniger. Kate Preusser and John Trupin are joined by staff writer Jake Mailhot to try and understand what’s made the pitching click so far, Haniger’s sustainability, and what we’d like to see the rest of this month.
We also debate if an 8-man bullpen is necessary anymore, recount some favorite Ichiro memories, and Jake decides Yovani Gallardo is where he's going to make his stand. Afterwards, we take questions from Twitter on fun deliveries, Jean Segura's mischief, ice cream analogies, and more.
Other topics include: Ceilings, Floors, and Beating Down the Doors, CB Bucknor Up Buttercup, Sexy or Granny, and more.
Music: NxWorries (Anderson Paak) - Livvin, Kendrick Lamar ft. Zacari - LOVE., Bonnie McKee - Bombastic.

“Lookout Landing 2.0” which is understandably confusing. We’re sorry.
