What are we supposed to do with this team, all of you?

I don’t trust them – neither of us should, but damn if they don’t laugh at watching Mariners baseball right now. A line that I really didn’t think I would write all season, but that I’m reluctant to type tonight. Kindness knows they didn’t deserve it. Their pitch remains as solid as a gaping hole in the ground mended with carefully crisscrossed duct tape, and their roster has 2.75 to 3.28 Major League hitters at the start of every game.

But these Yusei Kikuchi-pitching-four-hitless-innings are tingling? The dizzying and embarrassing whole body reaction after the fact to Evan White’s solo circuit in the eighth? The uncontrollable laughter of Ty-France? You can’t really help him.

I admit, I am a little ashamed of this nascent enthusiasm. I should know better than to be embarrassed by two weeks of late-round heroism and merry gallant. It’s impossible to get everyone on the internet to agree on something, but I really thought we had all watched this team and gone “Oh. No no. No thanks. Not them. Not this year. And no, this is definitely not their year. But I had prepared myself for some really nasty baseball, thinking I could somehow gird myself against the inevitable misery. Instead, it was anything but that.

It can be difficult to give in and allow yourself to enjoy things – especially things that we were held and determined not to like from the start. But I hear sports are supposed to be fun, right? So I try, and this team, against all odds, helps. And lately, my internal dialogue has gone a lot like this:

The Seattle Mariners are not very gone.


No sorry i just wanna say they’re probably pretty b-


No offense, it’s just early and maybe you become too –


OK, WELL MAYBE THE MARINERS ARE A LITTLE FUN AT THIS MICROSCOPIC MOMENT IN TIME AND YOU WANT TO STOP INTERRUPTING ME NOW


Quick-fire players recap: Box scoring is tough for Kikuchi, but he unsurprisingly looked excellent until the seventh and suffered unfair calls, Mariners defense and punches shabby classic Astros. Anthony Misiewicz continued to watch scztellar and Drew Steckenrider remained existing. Kyle Seager and Mitch Haniger did their best to demonstrate a competent offense to the rest of the roster, Tom Murphy mostly ignored them, they did a bunch of walks and yes Ty France crushed the start.
