Mariners' offense historically bad; Yankees stocking up on southpaws
• The Mariners are on pace to score 610 runs, the second worst in franchise history over a full season (only the 102-loss 1983 Mariners scored less) and the third worst in the league in the wild-card era (only the 2002 and 2003 Tigers were more inept).
• Half of Seattle's 30 wins have come by the slightest possible margin. The Mariners are on pace to play 73 one-run games, challenging the AL record of 74 set by the White Sox in 1968, the Year of the Pitcher.
Seattle has pitched very well this season, which has kept it respectable in the AL West. But other than Suzuki and first base reclamation project
Memo to Red Sox, Rays, Blue Jays and Orioles: Better start developing left-handed pitching if you want to compete with the Yankees in that ballpark.
