Beautiful - Abreu with the Grand Slam - Collins with nice AB's.  Giolito grinded through without his best stuff - bullpen (sans Marshall) was very good.  Tons of hitters just battling.  

Nice win - despite one horrible inning.

UPDATE: Jose Abreu is still That Dude

Luis Robert drawing walks excites me. If he sees the pitches, he's hitting the shit out of them.

Agreed, nice little row of very good approaches by Mercedes, Collins & Vaughn.

If Robert makes the adjustment as we've begun to see, watch out.

Hard to get Yermin in there tomorrow if Collins/Grandal are both playing...

 

 

Also, Leury and Madrigal...please go away, especially Garcia.  He's making me actually want Mendick back.

That said, he's one of the streakiest hitters there is, eventually he'll come out of it, and he can play the most positions of anyone on the team, including SS.

Don't know who's pitching for Seattle, but think I'd like to see Collins at DH this afternoon.

Dunn, RHP

Would be nice to figure out how to get Leury and Madrigal out of the line-up, but no such luck...unfortunately.

 

Mariners really need Kelenic and Kyle Lewis back to be interesting.   Haniger probably gets traded at some point.

Pretty sure it's now 18 in a row if you go back to Matthew Boyd and Jesus Lazardo...

We need Tommy LaStella!!   And "good" Moncada from the left-hand side.

interesting choice for a stadium with a retractable dome to keep it open when it's cold out

The roof is just an umbrella, it's still fully open air with it on.

It doesn't close the building, like say Miller Park or Chase Field.

Apparently the Sox can only win games I don't watch this year. Damn.

FWIW, Dane Dunning tossed a gem last night.

Again, didn't see much of the game (damn these west coast games).  But I saw enough to be frustrated by the continued defensive woes.  The 3rd inning was ugly, and Giolito had to throw way too many pitches.

But, Giolito did pitch well overall.  Also nice to see Robert destroy a baseball.  Collins looked good at the plate, not behind it.  Vaughn's first hit was encouraging.  I think he needed that first one to get going.  I expect many more.

I didn't see the rest, but it sounds like Crochet was good again, and Abreu did more Abreu things.

This team is exciting and frustrating.  Going to be a great season...that will cause me to drink more beer.

Abreu has single handedly convinced me RBIs aren't a meaningless stat.

this except unironically.

Default should be high rbis are unimpressive, but when you have a hitter like abreu whose approach and production with men on base is so consistently high than it's noteworthy. And granted, it probably was why he won the MVP last year over jose ramirez - and I think that's probably good.
