Seattle Times — Sports Enterprise and Investigative Reporter

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

@ripcityfan89 I think that's what they will ultimately do. But if they don't, you'll have some insight into why they might opt that way

@AndyJacobs11 I agree that it's welcome change. Thing is, the time to analyze where the team is headed has not ended yet. Can still lose 85.

Jul 28, 2014

@AndyJacobs11 I agree. One reason I don't think 3 runs per game allowed is sustainable at this point without another arm added.

Jul 28, 2014

@AndyJacobs11 It could be, yes. Especially with Rangers poised to improve greatly next season.

Jul 28, 2014

@AndyJacobs11 I do feel that 3.5 runs per game allowed is doable if another arm is acquired. So, to win, have to get offense up near 4

Jul 28, 2014

@AndyJacobs11 As for pitching, I don't believe it can sustain its 2.5 runs per game allowed that it had through much of June. Nor even 3.1.

Jul 28, 2014

@AndyJacobs11 Right now, run scoring is regressing to where a team that hits this badly overall should be. Won't stay at 2, but also not 4

Jul 28, 2014

@AndyJacobs11 I've said on radio what I've believed all along. This is team built for .500 or slightly less. Offense/pitching overachieving

Jul 28, 2014

@AndyJacobs11 But if team decides it truly is better than prior years when it faded and can make a run at 90+ wins, by all means go for it.

Jul 28, 2014

@AndyJacobs11 If it's because 2nd WC is giving illusion of contending and some better teams are poised to take off (TB, TOR) also not good.
