Due to some unforeseen, but somewhat avoidable, circumstances, the Extra Innings podcast wasn’t available for production during the Mariners’ torrid and almost unbelievable start to the their season, which included a 13-2 record and an offense averaging almost eight runs per game.

Instead, the podcast finally returns after the Mariners followed up that 13-2 start by losing all six games of the recent homestand, getting swept in a pair of three-game series by the Astros and Indians.

As Seattle prepares to open a four-game series with the Angels, beat writer Ryan Divish and columnist Larry Stone discuss the good start to the season and also the bad homestand that has served as a reminder of what this teams was expected to be in 2019.

Also Divish explains why there hasn’t been a podcast for the last few weeks. Hint: It’s all his fault.
