Road Trip Report - Games 2&3

Game 2 - Yikes!

Game 3 - I'm really tired of this team making scrub pitchers look like aces. It's getting old. Nice comeback late - but in the end it didn't really matter. If memory serves, I think the Mariners went to Texas last year about this same time - and if memory also serves I think they were swept. I'd say there's a distinct possibility that is exactly what will happen today.

I couldn't agree with your comments more. I don't understand how they can look so good against any team outside of the division, but so pathetic against teams within. It's like they mail it in when they find a divisional contestant coming up on the schedule. Probably mental more than anything in my mind means that they need to bring in a coach who's a winner, or who can instill winning on this team. Maybe ex-minnesota coach Tom Kelly or ex-oakland coach Billy Beane both of which were used to working with young players and producing winners. Or maybe Bob Melvin wasn't that bad (since he's winning at Arizona)and the roster needs to be retooled.
so much to do, so little time to do it in.
