20 games in, the Mariners are terrible

Tonight the Mariners roll into Houston for a matchup of two terrible squads. In case you didn't see the series with Texas this weekend, Seattle just didn't get swept, the didn't even look competitive. That's not good if you're squawking about making some noise this season in the AL West.

The offense is now ranked 26th in runs, 29th in batting average, 28th in on-base percentage and 29th in slugging percentage. The only bright spot offensively right now is Kyle Seager who currently leads the league in doubles with 10 and is hitting .378 in his last 10 games.

Everybody else though? Ugh. Fans would be happy if their lineup had guys that could hit over .200.

Tonight Felix takes the mound against Houston, but the King has had zero run support and is 1-2 on the season. This key will prove vital for the Mariners because they've already painted themselves into a corner. They haven't won a series yet, and if they want to turn this thing around they need to win this series against Houston or sweep it.

But remember how things went back at Safeco this season? Good lord.
