  • Welp, the Mariners went typical-Mariner last night and lost 2-0 to a no-name pitcher who was made to look like a Cy Young finalist.

  • James Paxton vs. Nick Martinez, 7:10pm Wildcard odds – Fangraphs.com: 53.2% Baseballprospectus.com: 48.3% Last night was another in what’s become quite a series of inexplicable collapses against bad-to-mediocre starting pitchers.
