Sodo Mojo Podcast Episode #006
Opening Day has finally arrived and we celebrated by recording the sixth episode of the Sodo Mojo Podcast! Join us this week as we discuss injuries, spring training and much more!
We open the show with a discussion of Hisashi Iwakuma’s rough spring training. Is anybody concerned with his poor command? What do we need to see from Iwakuma this year? Can he return to form? We discuss during this week’s Interesting Stat of the Week segment.
Of course, you cannot talk Mariners rotation in April without discussing the brutal news of Drew Smyly. He is going to miss a minimum of 6-8 weeks with a flexor strain in his forearm.
Can the Mariners weather storm? What do we expect from Ariel Miranda? We also kick around the idea of added pressure to the rest of the staff. Does that make a difference?
Our own Riley Baker has returned from Spring Training, and we discuss the vibe down in Peoria. Speaking of Spring Training, what did the guys think of the final week? What roster move surprised us the most? Who the heck is Dillon Overton?
