Nice to see Graveman putting in some work for the team this postseason.  Looks like he fits in well.  Real character.  Always liked that guy.

Toro fills in for struggling Julio and single hand wins the game in 9th inn against cheater Astros.  Overpaid Graveman struggling for relevance on the S side of Chicago.  This trade just keeps getting better and better.  Dipoto is the best.


Refuse to lose!  Go ms.

While Toro has never really produced, he does ok sometimes, but he is a .175 hitter. The Mariners have plenty of those. Graveman would have meant the play-offs last year, although the M's wouldn't have gone anywhere. The Mariners have too many easy outs. Kelenick probably has the ability, but frankly he does not seem to have the mental makeup to be a top big league performer. He is looking right now like a poor draft pick.

It is going to be very difficult for the Mariners without France and Julio the next ten days; they are not really on top of their game right now. Like Lewis, when they come back it may take 5-6 games for either of them to do a lot, I'd guess. I don't think they can count on Hanniger, either. He may well have been a one time wonder that one very good year.

The Mariners seem to have great chemistry and their recent performance was amazing. But, they would need to do that again after the next 8-10 games.

Toro is Barry Bonds of the 9th inning.  Cant teach clutch mentality like that.

Was hoping ms could add to their prolific collection of 1B / DH guys who can't run before the trade deadline.  And/or pull off Kelenic for Edwin Diaz trade w/t Mets.

When I yell at clouds, sometimes it's about mlb allowing 6 wild card teams.  It would be disappointing to end historical 20+ year streak by sneaking into FAKE playoffs!

Yes, I also dislike all the wild card teams, the NBA playoffs are similarly watered down. But it's professional sports, so it's all about the money. For the viewer it is pretty much a waste of time, since those teams have little chance of advancing. Then there is the NFL now with a 17 game regular season, logically, given the physicality of the game, no way it should have changed from 14 games...again, all about the money. Also would like to know the 'logic' behind a 162 game MLB season? Only thing that makes sense is that when the game began it was more like a full time job than a sport.

The worst part of professional (and now college) sports are the ridiculous broadcasting fees and resultant carrier fees that effect all of our cable/internet/cellular bills.

I agree, I pay about 115 per month for dish network and canít even watch the mariners.
