I'd rather Seattle miss. I'm still a bit bitter about the playoffs and I've encountered too many irritating and cocky Mariners fans who just want to be dicks for no reason to hope they get in. Their Oilerish broadcasting team makes it easy to cheer against them too.

I actually noticed that last night when I was watching. Almost found the broadcasters unbearable. Weren't really calling the game just screaming like fans whenever something happened

They sounded like their dog died when Texas went up 2-0. Shulman might be more enthusiastic when the Jays score a run like any other broadcaster but atleast he tries to be professional when the other team scores.

Oh yeah without a doubt they get excited when the blue jays make a big play but will also make a great call if the opposing team makes a great play also. The Seattle guys last night were just tearing Chapman a new one when he was blowing his save. Like getting so excited that he couldn't find the zone. Was pretty unprofessional.

This seattle team is insanely lucky. Sub par pitching, overall average hitting and they just find ways to survive. Can F off anytime now

Heard that last weekend. When they fell behind 8-0 to the Rangers and then got a 2r HR, they were giddy about it now being a game all of a sudden. Game ended 11-2 or something.

Earlier this week when they tied it at 1 in the bottom of the 2nd it was announced with the fervor of a perfect game in the WS.

Annoying to say the least and reason enough to lose out. All the annoying guys from the Rangers are gone (Odour, Bannister etc)

I mean, we are watching the Mariners feed... they're probably don't know/don't care that it's broadcasted nationally here. If you watched other regional commentators, they are also big homers.

Clinching with a win tomorrow against the stupid Rays will be sweeter anyway.

Just like the NHL some are but not all. It's expected for them to get more excited for the home team but many still try and show some type of professionalism.

Michael Kay can get pretty annoying calling Yankees games but even he is less homerish than these guys.

Well yeah that was the conversation we were having about how regional broadcasters sound/act

Agreed. Fans were fantastic today. Give them an entertaining Saturday afternoon and then celebrate the clinch by your own efforts (I knocked on wood as I typed this).

Resting Gausman for game 1 would be huge so hopefully we clinch tomorrow, one way or another.
