I know I’ve done a post like this earlier, but today, the OPS+of the lineup Seattle put out against the Mets, in order:
I’ll let you decide which ones are Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager.
A few days ago, noted clouter Stefan Romero hit cleanup for the Mariners when Cano had to take a day off. His OPS+ is 58.
Pitching and good defense can keep you in games, but in order to win games, you need to score more than 8 runs total in a three-game series against the New York Mets.
Next up is Baltimore – who are not the Mets in any way, shape or form.
