Last night the Seattle Mariners lost to the BALTIMORE ORIOLES--the worst team in baseball!

 

This was after a fisticuffs in the clubhouse earlier in the day. I believe Dee Gordon finally let his frustration with a mistake made by a fellow Mariner,  boil over. Knowing what sissy fight baseball players have, it was probably just a slap fight with some loud swearing, although one of the reporters who glimpsed what was going on saw at least body on the ground.

 

As far as I'm concerned, if the Mariners can't beat the ORIOLES, their season is OVER. Yet another extension of the 17-year playoff drought by the M's.

Re: S*CK!!!!

I saw the title and new immediately that you were talking about the Mariners. Dee is actually the one who made the error on Monday; the ball went off the end of his glove, and it should've been a routine catch. 


I can't figure out why Servais went to the bullpen when LeBlanc had only thrown 67 pitches, and of course the they blew it. 

 

I agree, their season is done. 

It costs nothing to be kind.

[ Edited ]

I read the fisticuffs were between Dee Gordon and Jean Segura, the latter upset because of a routine fly ball the former dropped the night before.  To his credit, Dee politely asked all reporters to leave the clubhouse prior to the fight.

 

Dee is such a slight man; it seems like he wouldn't fare well in a fight.  Deadspin was sympathetic: "I can't even imagine how many of my co-workers I'd punch if I had to see their stupid faces every single day for seven months at a time."

 

I guess a real test for the Mariners will be this weekend when they play three vs the Yankees.

To your first point: I think Dee Gordon is bigger than he looks. btw, did you see him kiss his biceps when he scored a run recently? I thought that was hilarioous; he wanted his teammates to know he's got guns too.

 

To your second point regaring the M's playing the Yankees: they'll be toast and their season will be OVAH! (as if it weren't already)

And for pity's sake, the sad-sack Orioles BEAT the Mariners! This is how they get our hopes up and break our hearts and/or infuriate us at the end of the season.

Re: S*CK!!!!

Lats night, they shut-out the Houston Astros 9-0.  And they have the 10th best record in baseball.  So they aren't that bad.  But I get it.  Seattle fans are disappointed this year's team will miss the playoffs yet again.  It is the longest drought in professional sports - 17 years.  Smiley Sad
