Hello friends, happy Monday! The Mariners return home today after a successful 5-2 road trip. Tonight they will start a three game series against LoMo, Brad Miller, Erasmo and the Tampa Bay Rays. Felix Hernandez will go for the all-time win record for a Mariners starting pitcher, and it will glorious.
First, some great news to share. Robinson Cano deservedly earned AL Player of the Week honors. In the past week his triple slash line is an astounding .516/.516/1.000 with 4 home runs and a crazy 1.516 OPS. One Houston series later, Robinson leads the AL in home runs with 12. This is the first time he has won the honor since July 1st, 2012 with the Yankees. He has been electrifying to watch. With the way he has been playing, this will not be the first award he earns this season (2016 AL MVP). Here is the announcement from Mariners PR:
Good job, Robbie *Lloyd Mcclendon voice*.
