Slurve:
What's the biggest reason for the Mariners' success to this point?

Jeff Sullivan:
Clutch performance
First among all teams in batting Clutch, second among all teams in pitching Clutch
We've seen this before from other teams. I recall that 2016 Rangers
The Mariners are third in high-leverage wRC+, and 19th in low-leverage wRThey're third in high-leverage wOBA allowed, and 17th in low-leverage wOBA allowed
They're a perfectly adequate team, but this is always basically a mirage

It’s a real bummer the way the reasons that Felix will never pitch in a playoff game have changed.

Didn't realize Cano was back in the lineup last night (played first, batted second, 1-4).
