You know, I think we didn’t talk about Ryon Healy at all in this episode. Progress! We’re in recovery.
Anyway, shit has been…shitty…for the Mariners. They’re now 4.5 games back of WC2, and 5.5 games back in the division with just 34 games left. Do they have what it takes to come back, or are they toast? We debate!
Marco Gonzales looked bad again today…should the M’s skip him again, shut him down, or has his recent stretch of bad starts been more bad luck? That’s also a thing we talk about!
James Paxton is throwing again, and may make his next start, or at worst, miss one more. But will it be too little, too late once he returns?
The 2019 Mariners schedule was released, and we take some time going through it, looking at some of the unique opponents traveling to Safeco–or whatever the hell it’s called next year–that we don’t usually get a chance to see. Shane debates going to Pittsburgh for the road series there.
There’s some Seahawks stuff to talk about. Beloved franchise icon and punter–something you normally can’t say about punters–Jon Ryan, was released, which probably is the right move, but is still sad nonetheless. Shane actually watched some of the preseason game against the Chargers, and offers some thoughts.
Since Shane will be gone for next weekend’s UW opener, he gave his prediction for their game against Auburn, and Brett follows with his look at WSU’s opener against Wyoming.
When we return next week, it’ll be a newly 30-year-old Brett flying solo, as Shane will be off gallivanting through the western US to watch baseball. If Brett survives this weekend’s birthday festival, of course. I can’t believe you’ve read this far without pressing play yet. Press play, already!
