All I can think of now is this ####### game. An 18 game winning streak collided with a 14 games losing streak in the first team's park, with the first team's undefeated starting pitcher having won the first 17 starts of his career, and the first team's future HoF first baseman primed to get his 2000th hit. And of course anyone can guess what happened.
It certainly didn't help that the Rangers decided to reel off a dozen consecutive victories during this Mariners losing streak.
I really hate when a team on a long losing streak plays my team, particularly when my team is home. If you beat them 2/3, they still snapped their streak against you. In no other series is less than 3/3 a failure.
Those numbers just make me think the park factor for Safeco is off this year. I think the same about the Mets.
And of course anyone can guess what happened.

i don't understand why the mariners can't seem to get any ballplayers who can hit
The problem, in no uncertain terms, is that the Mariners' front office was bamboozled by cutting edge defensive metrics into thinking they could win with a shitty offense. Add in to that some bad risks and an aging star, and this is what you get.
Really? Seamed to me he drafted the guy he could get to the majors the quickest to try show something...
It's astonishing how bad the M's offense is this year. Even worse than last year, maybe.
I know we don't put much stock in batting average, but think about this: the highest BA on the team is Ackley at .297 in 121 plate appearances. The next highest is Ichiro at .268.
