Visiting Dugout Episode 23 — Seattle Mariners

Chrystal O’Keefe talks to Mikey Ajeto about the Mariners

The White Sox continue their West Coast road trip to Seattle, taking on the Mariners. Seattle is in a tough division, ranking fourth despite hovering around .500. Both teams seem to have turned a corner, or at the very least are peeking around the corner. Two-time SABR award winner and contributor to Baseball Prospectus Mikey Ajeto joined the podcast to preview the series, chat about the Mariners, and talk about baseball and life. Content warning: There is talk about deep depression.

  • The wild American League West
  • What’s going on in Seattle?
  • How do the Mariners get out of their slump?
  • Who is the team’s current MVP, and who could be on the trading block?
  • The Paul Sewald fan club, and how it saved a life
  • A round of questions from Twitter about best friends, best players aside from Ichiro and Ken Griffey Jr., and Mikey’s love for Nirvana
  • Series matchup and pitching breakdowns
  • Why can’t [redacted] join his friend [redacted] in Japan?
  • Fears, threats, and the keys to win the series
  • Around the league with Mikey’s thoughts
