    That is entirely too much faith in the Mariners.

    The Mets are now LOLMetsing other teams. Last weekend the weather forecast changed and the grounds crew’s initial plans to let the field take on rain naturally failed because it rained too much. Then they threw the tarp over after it rained but that didn’t allow the field to dry so Tuesday’s game had to be postponed to a Wednesday DH. This threw off the Marlins rotation and wouldn’t allow their ace to pitch on Sunday unless he took short rest.

    Then last night there was rain at the top of the ninth after the Marlins took the lead. After a three hour rain delay there appears to be a window to play. It sounds like grounds crew started to prep the field, but not exactly with haste, so the Marlins begin complaining, both to the umpires and directly to the grounds crew. It begins raining again and the game is officially suspended in the 9th with the Marlins up 2-1. After that the grounds crew takes a group photo in front of the Miami dugout.

    If, after Sunday, the game still has playoff implications, the Marlins will need to travel back to New York from Pittsburgh to play four outs. And then travel again to a new city to begin the playoffs Tuesday should they qualify.

    He just hit 40/70 last night, so he stole 10 bases in a week?

    He should’ve just done that all season. He could’ve had 240 SB!

    With 11 games left, the Mariners and Rangers sit a half game back of the Astros in the AL West.

    The Mariners have one game against the A’s then three against the Astros and seven against the Rangers.

    That seems like a good way to make it so the A's sell less than 2,000 tickets/game for their final years in Oakland.

    Why would you give Oakland a new team after letting the previous leave? Dumb.

    Also, Raleigh area should be up for an expansion team.
    The reasoning given was:

    1. It would avoid legal issues with Oakland.

    2. The stadium in Vegas likely wouldn’t be ready until 2028 so it would give the A’s the ability to keep playing in Oakland until then.

    3. It would make realignment a lot easier.

    For years Rays fans have been saying that it’s the stadium location in that’s killing attendance, not that there isn’t a fan base. Somewhat backed up by the fact they’re in the top half of the league in TV despite being in the basement for attendance. Just put the stadium on the Tampa side and the attendance issue will fix itself. But what is ownership planning to do? Build a new stadium in St Pete.

    The Angels usage of Trout and Ohtani are the equivalent of the Lions using Barry and Calvin Johnson. Generational talents with no playoff success and bad ownership.

    I'd do the same thing if my team just got smoked by the Tigers.
