Three Bold Mariners Predictions for the Month of May
Mariners Bold Prediction #1 for May: Mariners go 18-10
The Mariners went 11-10 in the month of April. They’ve already got one win under their belt as they finished off the Marlins series with a win and avoided a sweep. They’re going to lose just as often in May as they did in April, but with 7 more games to play, their record is going to look a lot better.
There were some funky things at the beginning of the season, mostly the cold and wet from the confoundingly open stadiums in Minnesota and Chicago. The Mariners dominated their homestand, and then struggled in Florida.
The Mariners have a darn good starting rotation, especially when the defenders actually show up behind Marco Gonzales. Flexen has been solid, Gilbert is incredible, and Ray is a frontline SP. If Brash can find the zone a bit more, it’s going to be a really good year.
They’ve got some tough series this month. Starting off in Houston, four with the Rays, A road trip of the Mets, Blue Jays, and Red Sox. WHO CARES! Mariners are having a good month, and are going 18-10.
