7:10, in a thunderstorm if this keeps up. That’d be kind of cool.

    We’re now 1/2 a game better than San Diego.

    Waiting for Morrow …. (get it?) has become the highlight of the season for me so far.

    The Sonics leaving Seattle makes me appreciate having a baseball team at all. I was part of saving that team in 1995.

    What a day.

    56: Those mental signals took care of the other 498 feet.

    It feels good to win…
    Cheers everyone!

    I love regression to the mean. That, and playing other crummy teams.

    Shhh…Nicole’s talking.

    MLB Trade Rumors speculates that the Yankees might look at Sexson as a “defensive backup first baseman”. Should we ask for Joba or Hughes?

    so, what’s on Benne’s video, for those of us with tiny slow laptops?

  13. Breadbaker on July 2nd, 2008 10:14 pm

    Should we ask for Joba or Hughes?

    And A-Rod to even out the salaries.

    earnest caller on the post-game: “if we keep this up, maybe we should reconsider breaking this up, we could be the next 1948 Braves”

    man, the BIAW must be spending a fortune on those anti-gov ads.

    Every time you post something from, God kills a kitten.

    Please, won’t you think of the kittens?

    I wish the Mariners could always play last place teams that recently fired their managers.

    It levels the playing field, don’t you see.

  17. jzalman on July 3rd, 2008 8:21 am

    Uh, guys, did we just win 3 series in a row? What’s going on?!

  18. The Ancient Mariner on July 3rd, 2008 8:50 am

    What’s going on is playing crummy teams.

  19. Paul B on July 3rd, 2008 9:24 am

    Let’s see..

    Atlanta, losing team, would be in last were it not for the excreble Nationals

    NY Mets, losing team, recently dumped their manager

    SDP, last place team, in the middle of a huge losing streak, have now lost 14 of their last 16

    Toronto, last place team, recently dumped their manager

    70 comments on a Mariners winning game thread. Wow.

    What’s also going on is regression to the mean, and a little old-fashioned random variation. The M’s were never a .350 team, and even if they were, they would be expected to have SOME good stretches. Nobody goes 3-7 over ten all season long. It’s not like they’ve won ten in a row or anything (the traditional cutoff for streaks that bad teams can’t make); they’re just having a fairly decent stretch against some bad teams.

    We could finish at .400, but that doesn’t mean we’ve turned anything around.

    What’s happening is a Miracle of God.

  22. jefffrane on July 3rd, 2008 10:07 am

    One of the more irritating things about last night’s game was how many times Rick, Dave and Co. babbled about Bloomquist “winning” the previous game. I suppose tonight we’ll have to hear repeatedly about Cairo “winning” last night’s game. Superstars, both of them.

  23. bakomariner on July 3rd, 2008 10:34 am

    The winning is actually drving me crazy…I sit there watching the game and get excited when they play well…but then I realize that the more the guys we want to dump do well (Richie’s homer, Cairo’s three RBIs, WFB’s walk-off, etc.) it just delays the re-build…

    I don’t want to root for the team to lose, but if that’s what it takes, so be it…

    The only good thing lately has been Washburn…he’s thankfully picthing his way out of town…a NL team HAS to take him now…hopefully we don’t have to eat all the cash and we can get at least a B level prospect or two for him…

  24. Steve T on July 3rd, 2008 10:36 am

    Well, if we’re going to win games, it pretty much by definition has to be guys we want to dump doing well. There isn’t anybody else!

  25. bakomariner on July 3rd, 2008 10:53 am

    73- There are guys we should keep around…not everyone should be dumped…but I get your point…

  26. jzalman on July 3rd, 2008 12:50 pm

    My question of “what’s going on” was tongue in cheek/rhetorical.

  27. Steve T on July 3rd, 2008 1:49 pm

    @74 — yeah, but the guys we should keep are already doing well. We suck even when Ichiro’s hitting. It’s the tiny miracles, like Cairo pounding out some doubles, that put us over the edge.
