Ah...the 2001 Mariners. They finished 116-46. This is not a mis-type. That is 70 games over freakin' .500!!! They were 33 games over .500 at home and 37 games over .500 on the road. This is the most wins in the regular season since the season was expanded to 162 games. They tied the 1906 Cubs that went 116-36.
Did the Mariners make it to the World Series?? No..Beat in 5 games to the Yankees.
Regular season records mean nothing. Both teams are 0-0. Our Redlegs are in a good position, and playing the team they need to play in a 5 game series. Baseball is a game of streaks, and it is time for the Phillies winning streak over the past 3 weeks to come to a hault. The Reds have been treading water for the last couple of weeks with injuries, and it's time for them to start a winning streak.
