Mariners Breakdown: Bob Stelton on concerns, signs of hope after rough road trip

May 5, 2022, 5:10 PM

The Mariners are back at T-Mobile Park for the next seven days, and they should feel relieved to be back home after enduring a 2-7 road trip where they lost series to the Tampa Bay Rays, Miami Marlins and Houston Astros, the latter of which was a sweep.

Verlander solid again as Astros beat Mariners 7-2, complete sweep

With two home series upcoming now against the Rays (Thursday-Sunday) and Philadelphia Phillies (Monday-Wednesday), we caught back up with our pal Bob Stelton of Seattle Sports’ Wyman and Bob for a new edition of his Bob’s Baseball Breakdown video series.

In this week’s video, we ask Bob for his thoughts on:

• His concerns coming out of the road trip
• His biggest reason for hope going into the homestand
• The most pleasant surprises so far this Mariners season
• The most memorable Mariners games he has attended
• What he’s expecting when Kyle Lewis returns
