I have changed my Twitter handle to reflect new role as Sports enterprise and investigative reporter for Seattle Times. Same attitude applies.

Going off this past weekend's offensive pace, the #Athletics now have just under 17 games worth of scoring in 2 innings so far. #Mariners

@BradyKnowles Folks said the same in Boston when it was 3-0 in the 7th. But the way pitching looks today, your point is well taken.

@ShipstadPilot11 I agree with that. But it would be a beginning, at least. What they need are the 7 IP QS they'd gotten all year from top 2

Sep 01, 2014

@DaWgincatland Not enough to say "a start" of 7 IP. Felix did that other day, but allowed 5 ER. This team needs innings AND quality.

Sep 01, 2014

@DaWgincatland I said a quality start of "more than" 6 IP. Not sure how else to phrase it.

Sep 01, 2014

@ShipstadPilot11 Otherwise, too much pressure on bullpen -- which will tend to give up a run or 2 if working 3 IP daily.

Sep 01, 2014

@ShipstadPilot11 A 6 IP, 3 ER QS means 4.50 ERA, which knocks M's from contention if done daily. When surpasses 6 IP that QS really helps.

Sep 01, 2014

@DaWgincatland I phrased it as a QS of more than 6 IP. Can't be more direct than that. Bare min. QS is a 4.50 ERA and nothing to crow about.

@JamesLuther81 He is probably THE key reason this team is contending. The most unexpected production of anyone on staff.
