M’s Are 5th Team To Complete 2016 MLB Runs Scoring Survivor: Have Won 5 Series In A Row

Chuck Booth (MLB Reports Majority Owner/Lead  Analyst)

We are getting to the guts of these teams finally completing all of their scenarios, although it could be months before all 30 clubs get it done.

Last night, the Mariners doubled up the Astros 6 – 3, and are the 5th team to complete the 11th variation.  The best they can hope for is finishing 5th.  Some teams could still pass them with holding games in hand, and being on the verge of completion themselves.

Seattle has been red hot as a squad the last 15 days.  They have won 5 straight series, and have now taken the 1st game of a 4 game set vs Houston this weekend.

The Mariners stand at 1st in the AL West – with a 17 – 11 record, and are 12 – 4 on the road already.

Obviously this teams offensive depth is a lot stronger this year, with Dae Ho Lee, Chris Iannetta and Nori Aoki replacing futile numbers from the C, CF and 1B positions last season.

Robinson Cano has also operated at an MVP caliber clip with and MLB leading 30 RBI in 28 GP – among his 9 HRs and .918 OPS.

The Bullpen is a lot more solid than a lot of folks anticipated – and Taijuan Walker, Hisashi Iwakuma, Nate Karns and Wade Miley have provided Felix Hernandez backup – where the 1st had poor 1st halves to last season, and the last two gentlemen were not even on this Starting Staff in 2015.

With the ‘Stros struggling so mightily out of the gate, and the Rangers still awaiting on Yu Darvish, the M’s could really take the AL West by storm in 2016.

A lot of people predicted this kind of team in 2015, so I am not shocked to see it actually come to fruition early.  I still feel they need to upgrade at the CF position, and possibly at SS midway through the year, but the franchise should have no problem pooling its resources to make that happen.

On the other side of the game last night was Jose Altuve leading off the home half inning with yet another  HR.  It was the 6th time already he has done that, and his 9th jack overall.

For those scoring at home, Altuve is leading the MLB in OPS at 1.104 – and XBH at 23 (has a MLB leading 14 Doubles).  It is a shame that Houston has wasted his early start to a tune of a 10 – 19 record.

We are preparing an article on him later in the day. 

MLB Runs Scoring Survivor 2016:

This should turn out to be quite fun.  A lot of gambling establishments have this sort of deal, and we will keep a running total of this on a daily basis (just for fun though), in addition to MLB Shutout Survivor, Who Owned Baseball (Daily MVP of the pitcher/hitter in both the American and National League) and also our Interleague results.

What Runs Survivor is: A MLB team scoring 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or (10+) in different games throughout the course of the season.

Once a club has one of these run totals once, you cross it off and keep going until they complete the 11 different variations.

I am happy to be back at the helm of the MLB Reports, after completing my record 224 Games in the MLB Trip in 2015.  It was the 4th time I have seen all 30 MLB Parks since 2008. 

During that time away I was fortunate to do 100 Media Interviews and be named the Baseball Blogger Alliance President.
