So far, all looks somewhat depressing over all. Things aren't like I hoped or predicted. I'm hoping this is just for April and May, and some miracle happens.

So far, the M's are 26-32. Depressing and a bit of a shock for me. I was thinking the M's would do alot better than this.

Well the wind has been taken out of this thread. Question though, assuming the Blue Jays and Bills both make the playoffs this year, which seems very likely for Toronto and at least realistic for Buffalo, would the Mariners then have the longest playoff drought in the "Big 4"?

A lot has to go right.

I think their best chance is to tie 1 or more of them and then win the tiebreaker(s) to get in. I think Baltimore, Toronto & Detroit all lose at least one game this weekend, if Tanaka starts on Saturday, the Orioles can lose 2 games. Can each lose 2 games?? It's possible. Toronto plays in Boston; Boston is still playing for home field in the playoffs, and it's Ortiz last regular season home series. Baltimore plays in New York, that team is playing well with the kids up. Tigers in Atlanta. Not only do they lose the DH this weekend, but the Braves have been one of the better teams in baseball since they traded for Kemp at the deadline.


Of course, if the Mariners miss the playoffs they only have themselves to blame by finishing 11-8 against the 72-87 Angels and 2-4 against the 57-102 Twins. If they were even 4-2 against the Twins (which would just be OK) they'd be tied with the Jays & Orioles, if they were 5-1 against the Twins like a playoff team should be they'd be leading the Wildcard and not having to worry about what other teams do because the other teams would be chasing them. If they were even 3-3 against the Twins (which would still be terrible) they'd actually be in pretty good shape to at least force a tiebreaker game.

That was insane, the season on the line Cano, Cruz, Seager need one hit to win tie it and IMO break it for the win and they go 0 for 3. AHHHHHH,

I thought about this. In light of the Cubs winning the World Series, there is something odd. The Cubs were long known as "lovable losers". The M's were just known as "losers". Cubs and Mets have this mystique surrounding their historical futility, interrupted by breaking through from time to time. Seattle isn't known for that.

That's a good point. I think the Cubs carry that label because there was nothing intimidating about the face of their franchise, coupled with the fact that they play in this friendly ballpark with ivy and day games where Take Me Out To The Ballgame and organs are such a staple of old baseball which you don't see. With the Mets, I think it's just because they play second fiddle to the big bad Yankees in the same city.

What separates Seattle though is them being such a newer major sports city relative to the others.
