On pace for 141 wins.

Just saying...it could happen!

    When I saw .875 i thought you may have been talking about Bryce Harper's batting average.

    Sadly, he is only batting a meager .429 with only 3 home runs. But I think he will snap out of this slump.

    The M's have beat some very good times so far, also....A's and Angels.

    Mariners just blew threw the red sox.

    There is a cure for pennant fever in April, it’s called a 162 Game Season 😂

  • keetskeets Posts: 20,603 ✭✭✭✭✭

    it is extremely early. look for the Twins to enter October around .525 and Harper at the same time to be around .275 and 30.

    Harper will not keep up this pace. he is a historically streaky player. He has had one great full year to this point in his career.

    Don't underestimate Bryce Harper this season. He looks like he's out there on a mission and so far he is fulfilling it.

  • craig44craig44 Posts: 3,014 ✭✭✭✭

    It could be. I hope he has a great season. I will, however, look at his considerable backlog of work and base projections on that.

    Your reasoning is logical.

    Remember though, this wasn't some free agent in his early 30's. Harper is only 26 years old, and under the dietary and physical tutelage of Gabe Kapler, I believe his upside is greater than that of his MVP season.

    Wait until he starts playing in the warmer weather when the ball just flies out of CBP. May not many more homers but definitely more than a couple. A lot of those line drives he hits will just carry right on out of the park.

    Yet still the only MLB team to never get in the World Series...just like Thomas Dewey or William Jennings Bryan...always a bridesmaid but never a bride. :(

    In Seattle, we'd be happy to be a bridesmaid!

    not true.

    under the dietary and physical tutelage of Gabe Kapler

    Harper has been preparing himself to be a MLB player since he was in junior high. There is absolutely nothing Gabe Kapler will be telling him that he doesn't already know or has tried. Harper had some amazing April starts to seasons in Washington as well, they didn't always continue and it has nothing to due to dietary and physical tutelage.

    APR2013
    .344 avg, .430 OBP, 9 HR, 18 RBI, 1.150 OPS

    APR2015
    .286 avg, .440 OBP, 5 HR, 15 RBI, .985 OPS

    APR2016
    .286 avg, .406 OBP, 9 HR, 24 RBI, 1.121 OPS

    APR2018
    .391 avg .509 OBP 9 HR, 26 RBI, 1.281 OPS

    I like Harper so I hope he has an MVP caliber season but your zaniness and attempts to use correlation as causation always crack me up Stevek.

    How could you possibly know that? That's a figment of your imagination similar to Alice in Wonderland.

    But your comments are no surprise, coming from a genius who hasn't figured out yet how to upload an avatar. 🤣

    M’s are down to .846%. The struggle is real.

    Oh they did make it in 1973, 1974, and 1976 (plus 1969 in the pre-modern era)...sorry! I stand corrected!

    I guess I can see what you mean, seeing as how if it hadn't been for your 1995 AL Runner-Up finish with that iconic piling on Griffey at the end of the ALDS, you might have lost the Mariners as well as the Sonics :( Sadly that came at the expense of my boyhood idol Don Mattingly (from nearby Evansville). :(
