The Mariners’ pitcher makes a nice shot at the Yankees after the series win
The Seattle Mariners aren’t quite as developed as the New York Yankees, which made a win for a Mariners pitcher even sweeter.
That Seafarers from Seattle aren’t nearly as developed as the New York Yankees, and when Seattle won a three-game series against New York, the win was particularly meaningful. Seaman’s Aide Paul Sewald was impressed by the victory.
Sewald tells Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times, “We don’t have Aaron Judge on our team. We don’t have a $35 million pitcher. But we have 26 guys who are all really good and all play a key role in this team. And when they do their job, we end up winning more games than we lose and that’s the key.”
The Mariners lag far behind the Yankees in salary and proverbial star power, but their potential remains extremely high.
The Seattle Mariners game series’ win over the Yankees proves its potential
Seattle is one of the worst teams in MLB. They have the sixth worst batting average (.231), tenth worst batting percentage (.383), and twelfth worst OPS (.697). They are close to the league average on base percentage, with 14th best (.314).
However, the Yankees are one of the best teams. They have the 3rd best OBP (0.330), 2nd best slugging percentage (0.442) and 2nd best OPS (0.772). Her batting average is about the same as the league average, falling to 14th at .244.
However, the Mariners have a good rotation. They have the 6th best ERA (3.67), 10th best opponent batting average (.236), and 6th best WHIP (1.21). Despite being one of the best pitching teams in the league, the Yankees are still a little better.
The Yankees have the third-best ERA (3.30), OBA (.218), and WHIP (1.11). They’ve also beaten the fourth most batters (1023).
For a smaller market team, beating such a well-respected team in baseball is a huge confidence booster, which should give them a jolt as they try to hold on to their wildcard spot.
