We are back with Episode 009 of the Sodo Mojo Podcast! It was a wild week, and we break it all down from the last week in Seattle Mariners Baseball!
On this weeks podcast, Riley and Colby discuss the biggest news of the week: the designation of Leonys Martin. Why did the Mariners part ways with its starting centerfielder? Is this a panic move? Could the Mariners be sending a message to the players?
Of course, to take the place of Martin, the Mariners recalled Daniel Vogelbach. The portly first baseman had a nice day at the plate. What do we think his playing time will look like? What does this mean for Danny Valencia? Are our expectations for Vogelbach too high?
The Mariners went 3-4 last week. We discuss what went wrong. Yovani Gallardo was impressive on Sunday. Nelson Cruz is heating up. Taylor Motter continues to crush the ball. Yet the team still has a 2-8 record on the road. What needs to change to improve on the road?
As we spin and look ahead to this next week, we quickly breakdown the expectations for 6 games against Detroit and Cleveland. The Mariners are also getting Jean Segura back this week. What does that mean for Taylor Motter? Where does he go now? What can we expect from Segura now? What type of impact can he make.
