Whenever the Mariners play the Astros in Houston, we are primed to expect the worst. However tonight’s game was a particular exercise in pain thresholds. How very 50 Shades of you, Mariners, just about a decade too late. To the pit of despair!
Pit of despair: Nestor Cortes, -.463 WPA
Slightly less pit-y pit of despair: Dylan Moore, .061 WPA
FUBAR for KUMAR update: alas, both Boston and Pittsburgh lost tonight, although neither in as spectacular a fashion as the Mariners, so there is no change in the pick order.
