M's offensive woes predictable in 3-1 loss to Baltimore

While the beat writers are focusing on the poor luck of the Mariners this season- they hit when they are behind, they don't hit when they get good pitching- the offensive problems are completely predictable.

This team is not scoring runs because it has no power-- which we knew was a problem all along!!

The M's are so dependent on stringing together hits to score runs, with the piss poor batting averages on this team what we saw last night in a 3-1 loss to Baltimore is hardly surprising. Can anyone remember the last extra-base hit for this team? When will we see Ichiro standing on second again?

The front office put together an aging, slow club with little power potential. This team will only go as far as their pitching will take them, and we should expect to see plenty of great pitching performances this year go for naught due to this teams everyday players.

Let's face it, when Dan Wilson is your best hitter, you're going to see problems like we saw last night.
