And and we got tech medicine our show about the -- the level on the passion towards the Mariners where do you think it is from fans based on your show this morning. Where they're at right now with this team. Well I mean it's blowing out slowly you know people are. I mean they're. Peter -- exactly in the arbiter of six that. Over the past decade in the trap. I mean Batman -- it played out. Oprah -- Older they're a bit. -- You know this early the first elite pitcher ordered in eternity numbered around I need a thirty. When it comes to attend and -- are starting to believe but there -- Katrina you know when they come back all. I'm actually gonna come home earlier there -- home and proud you are gonna -- and other aren't as an epic early -- And all our turner draw. You look at old games left on the schedule. Of play out. Met when you look at this to eagle the biggest concern all year and in the biggest talking point around them has been the struggles the offense they have been able to score runs all year we know they've given up the fewest runs in the American -- in all of baseball that is. But recently that did the offense is kind of -- -- no -- had a great series over the weekend in Detroit. We some put up some good runs against Toronto and Chicago as well where is this offense is surplus come in front. Yeah at -- -- -- you don't expect. The manner to have that kind of op and -- that they so on the last week as well. But army act very ridiculous and credit you know he made a couple of -- -- Friday Kendrick Morales got in a minute -- saturate. And they'll bring an upbeat act it nor yet -- -- left the Denorfia you know acquisition. That I happened to Jack. The -- each race at that -- called an apple you know -- that line but I'm not the norm the other every EU -- great value. To do it well pitcher. And -- and Jackson -- -- the air and I. Spot in the -- -- you know we are but where they are actually very well. All well. It's to say that got got it now. In the air. And -- the -- out like they are immediately got to line up you know I hear it act many. Back up -- exactly. You -- you. You've got guys that are keeping it a lot out of you render -- -- -- ought not ballclub. A well. -- Nicholas is our guest at least ninety DR in Seattle talk about the Seattle Mariners and their recent run. Of success yeah as you pointed out in never really knows the struggles they've had. What are you attributes that I guess the success this year to the most is that no is it a solid rotation where do you point to and say. That's the reason the Mariners are in this wild -- -- -- in in the wild -- of course are today. I'm moving down the stretch what do you credit that to the most. I got a point pitching staff I -- patio that statute that baseball. Top to bottom -- -- Eric H and that -- you and Mark -- younger rejuvenation is courier and nobody expected to where. -- -- Pakistan back to picking it left up. Pretty well he went out here. But it arm shoulder injury though I moderate pace and -- inevitable and has been. Well and while opera ball what is -- you know arm that have merit in it. And out at Baptist or upload they are he's seen the kind of the trying to change it. Everybody hopes -- of the Atlanta. Which when you look at that team in you talk about the pitching staff the other big note has been Robinson can know in India could make an easy argument that either via both canal and Felix Hernandez should be MVP candidates. What would you -- it -- -- offseason did you see him having this type of impact and the home run numbers are down he's not playing in that short -- Yankee Stadium anymore but did you believe that he could have this big of an impact on this team. Well army used to bring in a rational about it and know about it in any ballpark and it's question. They're expecting thirty. But -- -- but we all expected you know better our numbers to vote out. Come down a washed there -- you know we didn't expect to get out of it that they've got openers the leadership. You know Kara thank OK I -- -- into four million dollars in economy. And Don that I felt that not. You know on -- about but -- -- -- -- young guys work he it's really great leadership -- up. And you can edit your current -- a lot out he played a large part picker. The C Jackson had a good pre season ideas coming under Stephen -- up how they played against the chargers. -- -- -- for race fans -- -- we have Seahawks fans -- Portland -- listened to us but nothing like what you guys have obviously up in Seattle every morning on your show. What are the expectations. Based out like have they shifted based often what means -- scene in the pre season. Are there but the picture at the grim topic -- expectation. Yup and it is very -- reduced. To him at least make it and other people all legal. They haven't really taking. -- step back. You know potential they get on the potential client and got you guys. They are here are very -- everybody. But it's -- starters here. Are your starter. Are sent an up and he's the return for our picked up an absolute. People and probably a bit. You know spurt in the second -- you can't get there at 80 well they democratic or you're out -- They're not -- on it they're so dynamic and you know each -- Where were being knocked it right or eight and it -- -- -- export out. There's so much speed out there alt -- -- all the down a bit that they can achieve. -- will one of the biggest story lines we saw this Nazis it was Seattle was a Michael Robinson came out made the comments about -- -- him him being somewhat worried of a lack of veteran leadership in that locker room. Would lose and a couple of guys in the offseason it is that a realistic inserted in your point or does winning a suitable kind of take away the need for those veterans in the locker room. Well I mean it's not that have. You know they say. That I've been -- -- -- -- is better for eight PG. -- eight years old you lose why the right -- Evan Williams. -- -- -- and so you guys at Pakistan into the book poker playing. Next trying to didn't go out. You're. Gonna have you step in the -- rolls. It's just a product they put on the -- I don't like that -- product.
