Sodo Mojo Podcast Episode 11: Your Seattle Mariners Podcast

After a 5 week hiatus, we are back with episode 11 of the Sodo Mojo Podcast, the Edgar Martinez episode. The Mariners have had an interesting week, which we discuss on this week’s episode.

Will Stone is joined by Colby Patnode, Riley Baker, and Dan Clark on this episode. The guys discuss whether Mariners fans should be concerned with James Paxton. After a great start in his game back from the DL, he has been hit around in his last 3 starts. The fastball velocity is steadily declining, though Paxton insist it is a mechanical problem and not an injury. Are we worried, or do we buy Paxton’s explanation.

The Major League Baseball Draft was last week. We have a quick rundown of the top 2 picks. Which All-Star players has first round pick Evan White been compared to? What does Sam Carlson bring to the Mariners? We also discuss some lesser known picks who caught our eyes, including a catcher who threw out 61% of attempted base stealers.

The Mariners had a 3-4 road trip. Is that a success? Or a failure? Sixteen of the next nineteen games are at home where the Mariners are 20-13. Is this the last chance for the Mariners to make some hay in the standings? How important is this stretch to the 2017 season?

Finally, we answer a question that most people would get wrong. According to Fangraphs WAR metric, who has been the most valuable Mariner in 2017? The answer will probably shock you.
