Checking in on the Mariners: How are fans feeling at 10-12 this early in the season?
The Mariners have been all over the place this season. They exit the series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a record of 10-12, but it's been anything but a near .500 start to the season. There's been a fair amount of chaos, as expected, but many fans are struggling with being on the wrong side of it so far in 2023. It stinks, but the baseball gods will not let everything fall your way.
So, as the Mariners fly across the country to play first the Phillies and then the Blue Jays, we decided that it would be a good idea to check in with you, the fans, to see how you are feeling about the Mariners. Off days are a good time for this, and trying to do some of these reflections are something that we are going to try to incorporate more of on the site, including the possibility or doing some live Twitter Spaces to talk about the team.
You can see that the answers were split fairly evenly. Most folks are in the middle two options, with a fair amount still thinkings it's fine (like me!). The folks at the bottom? Well, I choose to leave the trolls alone. There's a reason Twitter has a mute button, after all. Let's go over each of the options and see which one is likely the right feeling to have at this point in the season for the Mariners.
