Mariners Breakdown: Bob Stelton answers M’s questions after 10 games

Apr 19, 2022, 1:34 PM

The first 10 games of the Mariners season have come with some ups and downs, but Seattle takes a 5-5 record going into their next series starting Tuesday night against Texas after winning two of three over the Houston Astros.

The key change Mariners’ offense displayed in series win over Astros

Needless to say, we have a lot of big questions about the Mariners, and Bob Stelton has a lot of opinions on them. So with that in mind, we’re putting Bob on the spot.

The co-host of Seattle Sports’ Wyman and Bob (Monday-Friday, 2-7 p.m.) is sitting down with us each week to share his instant reactions to both questions from his colleagues at Seattle Sports Station and Mariners fans on Twitter. He has no idea what we’re going to ask him beforehand, and we have a little fun along the way with the man who is usually peppering Dave Wyman and guests with questions every weekday afternoon.

Among the more notable questions answered in this maiden voyage of Bob’s Baseball Breakdown:

• What is the biggest surprise of this early portion of the Mariners season?

• What did the series win over the Astros, the defending American League West champs, tell Bob?

• Who are Bob’s favorite and least favorite members of the Astros?

• What does Bob want to see from the Mariners this week?

• Were Bob’s concerns about Seattle’s defense well-founded?

• How metal are these M’s?

The Mariners return to action after a day off at 6:40 p.m. Tuesday night against the Rangers. Coverage starts on Seattle Sports Station with the pregame show at 5:30 p.m.
