The Seattle Mariners may have found the perfect cure to blues associated with losing Ichiro Suzuki: a four-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals. Coming off that string of wins, the M's only have to win one of the next three games to secure a winning homestand. Of course, they'd prefer another series win.
As the Toronto Blue Jays come to town, that's what the Mariners will be gunning for. The Blue Jays are homer-happy, but we all know how often that works out at Safeco Field. The M's will try to feast on Toronto's second-string pitching while keeping the Jays in the ballpark.
