Analysis

Going down with the ship here.  If you want detailed analysis of why Seattle over Tampa Bay take a look at my analysis of this series the last two days.  At a high level Seattle has elite pitching and will be a “bet on” when they start to hit.  Even with a few wins the Rays haven't been over .500 in a month so I'm willing to oppose that happening here.

I don't dislike either SP but I do have George Kirby rated higher than Ryan Pepiot.  I also think Pepiot might have some mechanical issues to work on as he's got a 6.25 ERA over his last seven outings and struggled to find the zone in his most recent start in Pittsburgh.  

George Kirby will give up the occasional home run but you can basically set your watch to Kirby racking up strikeouts and not walking anyone.  Kirby has three straight quality starts and hasn't given up more than two runs in five straight.

I think Kirby is the one that “rights the ship” for this Mariners team (and for us).

Play on Mariners -113 for 4% (or 4 units)
