I'm not convinced he was in the way.

Just like like Tino Martinez and Adam Jones, that home run was in the Mariners farm system. It wasn't producing in the minor leagues so the Mariners traded it away. So don't color me surprised that it bit them in the ass...again. Classic Mariners.

He wasn't - the catcher clearly dropped the ball before getting to him. Look at 0:40-0:45 on the replay.

The manager should've been more aware and made a better effort to move, but that wasn't on him.

This, the fans can blame the manager "Bartman" all they want, the Catcher should of made the play, it doesn't help the next pitch was a home run. Oh its not the Cubs? my bad!

The Mariners are the farm system for MLB. There's a reason the Sounders pull in twice (three times?) the attendance.

I just wanted to say that Yan Gomes is a fantastic catcher (and not just offensively, as he's a good pitch framer and thrower), and should be getting all-star recognition.

Mehhh that game was lost by then anyway; Cleveland's pitcher was on fire last night.

No argument here. I believe it was last year that more players in the majors had played for the Mariners at some point in their career than any other team. It's not a coincidence that players leave the Mariners' system and start producing elsewhere.

I have watched that gif a few times now and i still don't know which team is which?
FYI I am not a big baseball fan but how many teams where similar uniforms?

Has the owner attended a game yet? I've read this is going on 10 years that any ownership has shown up to games.

True, he dropped it, but if McClendon had moved, the catcher wouldn't have had to worry about being on top of his not-looking-at-the-game manager, and would have been in a much better position to catch it. Yes, he was clearly in the way.

Hiroshi Yamauchi owned the Mariners from 1992 until his death in September 2013. Never attended a game even when they were in Tokyo.

No idea about the new ownership.

I don't want to interrupt your circle jerk, but the Sounders average 40000 and the Mariners average 24000.

Safeco Field capacity 47,000
Qwest Field 67,000

So the Sounders pull in almost twice the numbers...

As of tonight, they're 6 games above .500 and deep in the hunt for the lower division playoff spots.  They've got the second wildcard spot to themselves, they're one game back from the Angels in the first WC spot, and frankly the rest of the AL sucks this year except for Oakland.

The Angels have the #2 record in the AL.

That's not how math works.  They pull in a higher percentage towards max attendance.  If I really want to be a prick I can point out how the Mariners pull in 2,000,000 people in attendance per year while the Sounders only pull in under 700,000.

Everyone is ignoring math. The Sounders only have the full stadium capacity available for 5 games per season, otherwise they sell out at around 40k. Not to mention that the Sounders only have ~18 home matches per season, compared to 81 for the Mariners.
