In Mariners News...
- Yeah, Taylor is gonna fit right in.
- A gentle reminder.
Improbable as it still is, #Mariners have 2 distinct routes to playoffs. One is as wild-card, & they now trail NYY by 2 games. Yanks have lost 14 of last 18. Other is to finish 2nd in ALW, and they are 2 1/2 behind Astros, who trail Oakland tonight. Astros have lost four in row.— Larry Stone (@StoneLarry) September 8, 2020
