Now obviously that isn’t going to happen, but it does bag this quick question; who are these guys, and what have they done with the Mariners? I mean, 1
78 dingers in eight spring training games is just fucking ridiculous. What’s even more ridiculous about that number is the fact that the M’s have hit four of those dingers against the Texas Rangers. As I am writing this, they are up 8-4 (in case you were wondering).
Their 6-1 start in Cactus League play doesn’t really mean a lot. But my goodness is it fun to here about the M’s hitting dingers, and lots of them. Enjoy them while you can.
Oh and then there is this;
The San Diego Padres led all Cactus League teams in home runs in 2012. They finished 28th in regular season home runs.
