So, I'm sitting here trying to come up with a sentence or two that could possibly sum up my feelings about the Mariners after their sweep of the Tiggers. I mean, are the Mariners the team that got swept by the White Sox, or the team that swept the Tigers?

Who the Hell are these guys???

After 20 games I thought that it might be interesting to do a quasi side-by-side comparison of the two teams w/r/t team stats. Check this out:

Hitting

SEATTLE      TORONTO
AVG
19th (.240)  24th (.237)

OBP
27th (.291)  16th (.311)

SLG
23rd (.365)  17th (.380)

OPS
23rd (.656)  20th (.691)

RUNS
11th (81)     9th (85)

WALKS
24th (49)     8th (69)

STRIKEOUTS
17th (142)    8th (130)

SB
17th (11)    17th (11)

CS
24th (6)     24th (6)

Groundouts / Flyouts
0.90         1.27

Seattle hitting line
.240/.291/.365

Using a complex Rube Goldbergian algorythm, here's how the two teams slashlines rank against the rest of MLB
Seattle (19 + 27 + 23) / 3 = 23
Toronto (24 + 16 + 17) / 3 = 19

Ok, so in terms of hitting stats this is how it breaks out then
Seattle: AVG
Toronto: OBP, SLG, OPS, RUNS, WALKS, STRIKEOUTS, SLASHLINE

Advantage - Toronto!

Looks bleak, eh? Let's look at the pitching stats then.

Pitching

SEATTLE      TORONTO
ERA
17th (3.94)  16th (3.92)

HITS
18th (164)    9th (148)

WALKS
6th (49)     26th (73)

STRIKEOUTS
11th (143)   25th (122)

HR's
25th (23)    27th (24)

BAA
14th (.244)   8th (.232)

OBP
8th (.300)   14th (.316)

SLG
15th (.392)  24th (.425)

OPS
11th (.693)  21th (.741)

WHIP
8th (1.20)   11th (1.25)

Groundouts / Flyouts
176/201 (.876)  239/137 (1.74)

Seattle pitching line:
.244/.300/.392

Toronto pitching line:
.232/.316/.425

Rube Goldberg sez:

Seattle (14 + 8 + 15) / 3 = 12.333
Toronto (8 + 14 + 24) / 3 = 15.333

And the tale of the tape is:

Seattle: WALKS, STRIKEOUTS, HR's, OBP, SLG, WHIP, SLASHLINE
Toronto: ERA, HITS, BAA

Advantage - SEATTLE!

All silliness aside, the two teams match up very close to one another. This is going to be a pickem type of series and it could go in any of the four ways (3-0, 2-1, 1-2, 0-3). I'm calling it a 2-1 series, advantage - Seattle (duh)!



Let's Rock!

I would like to see us continue to build off the momentum of sweeping the tigers and take 2 of 3 from the Blue Jays. With Beaven & Vargas those should be the two wins. Millwood hopefully fares better than he has but I have little faith in him and think he's going to get rocked again then after another bad outing he gets released.

It's nice to see the Jays finally got back to being Blue. They look much better this way.

That being said, I hope we destroy him and sweep them also.

We have six games left on the road trip and if we can stay even at .500 I'll be happy. They should be able to accomplish that with Felix being saved for the Rays.

The White Sox and Indians have to love the Mariners, while Tiger fans have to be totally PO'd.

My 2014 AAP's:
James Jones, Rainiers outfielder extraordinaire.

Ji-Man Choi, Rainiers slugging first baseman.

Carson Smith, Rainiers bullpen.

Logan Kensing, Rainiers bullpen.

Jesus Montero, trimmed down and ready to go.

Sorry, Ji-Man, but really? Maybe when you get off the restricted list, Montero will have been promoted. 

Carson is doing a fine job, but Logan has been dominant and deserves recognition.

We only need to win two games from Toronto and Tampa to have a .500 road trip which is always good. I think we can win three or four.

I really wish that Wedge would drop smoak in the order. 5th is were Smoak has had his best numbers. Batting clean up just doesn't work for him. Once again Ryan batting 2nd and Figgins sits after a 3 hit game. But at least Liddi is in there that's a start. Suddenly Seager has found himself the odd man out.

Despite the throwing error bleaven gets the guy to pop out. I'm not sure why you're even worried about the guy on 1st with 2 outs and 2 strikes on the batter.

man we're finally starting to feel like a major league line up. We got the 3 heavy hitters coming up Smoak-Monteor-Liddi that's a lot of man powah.

Back to back 4-pitch walks to Saunders and Olivo, this could be our chance.

Romero walks Olivo also.

Hmm Wells strikes out.

Should we have tried to bunt when wells came up ? 2nd & 3rd 1 out look better than 1st and 2nd 1 out right?

Saunders scored on an error so it's 1-1.

Beaven gets his 2nd SO.

Jose Buatista seems to be struggling this year.
