Imma keep it real with you chief. I will not be watching the Mariners tonight. There are simply better things I could do with my time. The only reason I did the thread is because we needed someone to cover it. That’s just the type of guy I am.
If you are going to watch the Mariners take on the Orioles tonight, not only might you be entitled to financial compensation from local mental health clinics, you also get to watch Ty France play second base! That should be good and normal. In all seriousness, Justin Dunn and his recent hot streak bear watching tonight.
With three above-average pitches by Stuff+ (Slider 120, Curve 117, 4-seam 106) and around average command (94 Command+), you’d think Justin Dunn would have better strikeout and walk rates. Tonight at home against Orioles (road 84 wRC+) seems like a good place to start. pic.twitter.com/UjRnku51rC— Eno Sarris (@enosarris) May 4, 2021
The Mariners...sort of need this game? John Means is pitching tomorrow and he’s Actually Good, not just Orioles Good, so the M’s need a strong night from Dunn if they want to avoid the very real possibility of getting swept by the Orioles. Again, you don’t have to watch this.
