The White Sox are 7-2, The Cubs are 7-1. The likelihood of the two Chicago teams playing against each other in the World Series is smaller than the 2016 Seattle Mariners making the playoffs.

And now the Mariners have won three in a row, so now they've achieved mediocrity. For whatever reason, a lot of Mariner teams in the past have had a hard time winning at home in Safeco Field, and hitting there. Helps pitchers though.

Weren't the Mariners doing this a couple of seasons ago, too? Dismal at home and great on the road?

Fairly frequently, I think. But this year they were supposed to have built their team for Safeco.

What are you talking about?



The Mariners have scarcely attained the level of mediocrity in this or any other millennium.


They remain "the worst franchise in the history of professional sports", and that was well-documented 25 years ago, while nothing has changed to lose the title (the only title they've ever won, I should add).

No, 2001, they had the the best regular season record in the history of Major League Baseball. Unfortunately, they failed in the playoffs.

Also, 1995 was a good year, battling for the AL championship, but coming up short against the Indians.

But, back to the "now". Why is this team better on the road? (both last year and so far this year?). Is it the dimensions of Safeco, or is it something else?

A couple of years ago the Mariners had a pitcher named Chris Young, very tall guy. He was an extreme flyball pitcher. In other ballparks, teams hit a fair number of home runs off him, but at Safeco he was superb. So it's got to be the dimensions, or the wind. So many players who hit well for other teams have come to Safeco to die.
