 The crew is back for Episode 8 of the Sodo Mojo Podcast. It has been a good week for the hometown 9, as the Mariners went 4-2. On this weeks episode we cover many topics , including the following.

.What is going on with the Mariners bullpen? We have seen some good, some bad and some ugly performances from the Mariners bullpen in the first 14 games.

Is there a quick fix out there? One of our contributors thinks the Mariners are missing one member of their ‘pen more than most fans realize. Do the others agree?

The Mariners will only go as far as Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, and Kyle Seager will take them. The “Big 3” appear to be heating up. Is this a sign of things to come? Is it possible our expectations are just too high or unrealistic for the Core 3?

Perhaps the biggest news of the week was the dominating performance of Felix Hernandez on Friday night. Is this a sign of things to come? We discuss the new look Felix. Did our expectations for the King change?

James Paxton ran his scoreless streak to 21 innings after an 8 inning, shut out performance against Texas on Saturday. He was named the American League Player of the Week. Is it time for Mariners fans to proclaim Paxton as the new ace? Is it possible the Mariners could have co-ace’s?

We take a quick swing around the Mariners farm system. Is anybody catching our eye? When can we expect Tyler O’Neill or Dan Vogelbach in Seattle?

Finally, we tackle some random thoughts in our People’s Voice segment, including Joe Cavanaugh’s inquiry: Are the teams struggles due to the age of its core? We also talk about the latest news on a new arena to house a new NBA and NHL franchises. Which project do we like the most? Which do we think will get done?
