Pretty lucky win for the Sox, with Betts hit sliding under the glove by a couple of inches and the Mariner home run missing by a few inches mid-game. But the M's beat up Eovaldi pretty good.

The M's big mistake was letting go of Diaz who would have shut the Sox down in quick order.

That game went about the way I thought it would. Nice W for the Ms.  I have to say, I didnít expect that Iíd like your third baseman so much.

Looking forward to attending todayís game with the fam. Hereís to Porcello getting the starting pitching right.

Yes, I sure missed Diaz the last couple games.  But giving up Diaz was the price for getting rid of Cano, and I can't imagine a serious rebuilding effort while carrying the dead weight of Cano.  The M's had already wasted too many years selling off their prospects and decimating their farm system in order to keep established players.  Even so, I sure would have liked to see Diaz scorching through saves in those last two games.

Great series. Didnít work out to well for my team but they were exciting games that could have gone either way in 3 of 4 contests. I hope this isnít just Mariners positivity month (what I call March/April) and I sign of things to come. It sure would be nice to see the two square off in the postseason.

On the Red Sox side of things I think they really miss the catcher, Sandy Leone, who cleared waivers after being released, and is playing in AAA Pawtucket (Sox). The middle relievers for the Sox were surprisingly good and the starters were surprisingly bad. On paper it should be the other way around. His calming presence, or lack thereof, has something to do with the starting pitching in my opinion.

Congrats on the series W. More cheering for your team and less chearing against the opposing fans will earn you a little more respect in the eyes of Red Sox Nation. Maybe weíd be less vocal. 😎

First, I make no claim to have written a dissertation on the gentility of the model Sox fan.

I had thought that some comments that might be taken as unfavorable concerning the visiting team were made from time to time at Fenway.

I think you might have misunderstood my post. Let me try and be more specific:

1) Mariners fans spend all game not cheering; itís like a library unless thereís a hydroplane race on the scoreboard.
2) Opposing fans start a cheer for the visiting team. Mariners fans then become passive aggressive and just do stuff that lands on me as silly.

Just cheer for your team willingly and upfront and youíll get a lot more respect from the Boston fan base. Weíd be less inclined to try and make it seem like a Boston home game any chance we get.

Regarding Fenway, fans there are generally nice. Theyíll make you feel at home. It will involve some very direct ribbing to your face but with a laugh and a smile and you probably wonít find it very aggressive. Except for when the Yankees are in town there generally arenít large groups or fans from opposing teams so there arenít major conflicts. But we do love to hate our Yankee friends and family. I think youíll find we also respect them. Without their passion and hatred of the Sox, the greatest rivalry in baseball, possibly in sports, doesnít exist.

Congrats again on the W. The Mís bats looked great. Itíll be interesting for both teams to see how the Sox play down in Oakland.

Stop telling us what to do.  We'll do what we want to do.  You're trying to change the attitude of Seattle sports fans.  It's not going to work.   Go back to the Red Sox thread.

That was very direct. It would seem that a transition could already be underway.   👍🏻👍🏻

He can't  go back to the Red Sox thread, it's nothing but an echo chamber of him screaming arrogantly at the walls. He figues dumping repetitive garbage here is him living his best life.  embarassedlaugh.gif

Mariners are 8-2.  Red Sox are 2-8.  Who would have thunk it?

Every game on my end has been incredibly painful to watch.  The Sox have shown moments of amazing brilliance followed by amazing collapse.  I think they need to get back home, get their rings, and have Pedroia rejoin them.  Congrats to your M's.  Lets' see what later in the season brings.
