Goooooood morning everyone! How about those first-place Mariners? While you wait for today’s game, let’s catch you up on the latest.
In Mariners news...
- The Mariners’ comeback is not only unlikely, it’s historic.
Through August 15, the @Mariners were 7.5 games out. Just 9 games later they are now tied for first.— OptaSTATS (@OptaSTATS) August 26, 2023
That's the largest deficit erased by any MLB team in fewer than 10 games to reach first (alone or tied) since the Dodgers made up a 7.5-game deficit in 8 games in August 1982. pic.twitter.com/DVCaEha6YQ
Around the league...
- Two women suffered non-life-threatening injuries yesterday during a shooting at Guaranteed Rate Field. The White Sox made no attempts to pause the game or evacuate the stadium.
- Deesha Thosar at FOX Sports says that Justin Steele might be the ace the Cubs have been waiting for.
- This year’s collapse for the Angels has been something to behold.

- Thaiss (Shoulder Inflammation)
- Drury (Shoulder Contusion)
