Where Do We Go From Here? Which Is the Way That...
Hey, kids; rock and roll; rock on; ooh, my soul. Yes, After briefly talking about the classic David Essex song, D.C. and guest Jason Hernandez talk about the Mariners Seat Fleet cutouts.

At the end, D.C. gets schooled by Jason on proper Spanish pronunciation and Mexican geography.
Mariners Beat the Trashcan Bangers, But Postsea...
The M's did beat Houston yesterday to take the series 2-1, but the scenario that would allow the Mariners to advance to postseason play is pretty unlikely. D.C. talks about yesterday's game, and then lays out exactly what would need to happen for the M's to end their playoff drought. Rock on!
Slowly Slipping Away

California Dreamin' (That the Mariners Would Win)
In two different "Sans" -- San Francisco and San Diego -- the Mariners would play the part of the home team while the air in Seattle remained smoky. And in both cities, they'd lose. D.C. breaks down the two previous games, as well as talking about how the Astros did over the previous two days. Then, the... Friday??? Mailbag segment, one day later than planned. D.C. answers questions about the M's playoff chances, his playing days, and thumb wrestling.
Mariners Get Clobbered (That's Not Creative, Bu...

D.C. talks about the Mariners playoff chances in the first half of today's program. They're battling Houston for the second spot in the Western Division; whose schedule is more favorable?

Much Ado About Nothing
Jason Hernandez joins D.C. on this program, and hilarity ensues. J.D. talks about his weekend plans, which involves the Dodgers/Astros series in Los Angeles. Which is of interest to Mariners rooters, as the 'Stros are currently battling the Mariners for a playoff berth. Yes, the Mariners are actually in a pennant race. Jason also talks about the items he received from various teams that held virtual marathons. Finally, the two of them answer fan emails in the Friday Mailbag.
Baseball's Wacky Wednesday
The Mariners dropped both games of its series against the Giants in San Francisco, the second of which was... bad. However, not nearly as bad as some other teams fared on Wednesday.

No More Nola
Austin Nola, Dan Altavilla, and Austin Adams are all now members of the San Diego Padres. This news broke while D.C. was recording.

On This Date in 1998...

Taijuan Traded to Toronto/M's Split Double Dip ...
D.C. talks about the double-header in Slam Diego that took place on Thursday. The M's executed a trade mere hours prior to the first game of said double-header.

M's Stun Slam Diego/White Sox's Giolito No-Hits...

Brooms Up! M's Sweep Rangers/Padres Series Prev...

(Or "Slam Diego," as it were.)
Dodgers Attempt to Ruin D.C.'s 100th Episode
In D.C. Lundberg's 100th episode of this program, first half is much the same as it ever was -- covering a Mariners loss.

Among the aforementioned roster moves was the designation for assignment of Daniel Vogelbach. D.C. also examines what may have led to his slow start this year and his poor second half last season, but also explains why Vogey was one of his favorite Mariners.
Marco Spectacular, Offense Not So Much
As good as the Mariners offense was on Monday, they were almost that bad last night. On the flip side, as bad as the pitching was on Monday, Marco Gonzales was that good, if not better. D.C. breaks down the latest Mariners loss, which has become an unfortunate trend. In the second half, in light of Kyle & Corey Seager finally facing off against one another, we look at some other pairs of Big League brothers who have played for the Mariners.
Bombs Away In L.A. (It Didn't Go the Mariners' ...
While the Mariners offense was clicking on all cylinders -- at least for one inning -- and hung a 9-spot on the Dodgers, it wasn't enough as the pitching staff gave up not one, but two of those big innings that have been plaguing the team all season. D.C. talks about this game, including something cool that the Brothers Seager accomplished.
M's Have a Problem in Houston
Yes, the Mariners got swept in Houston. Yes, the first game was one that everyone would just as soon forget. However, the final two games weren't nearly as dreadful as the first.

Today, three potential future starting pitchers are discussed.
Big Inning Stings Mariners (Again)
A familiar story unfolded in the Mariners' loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday. A starting pitcher (Taijuan Walker) starts out okay, then falls apart and doesn't survive the 4th inning. To be fair, the M's offense was worse, only mustering four hits. D.C. recaps this game, then previews the three game weekend series against the Colorado Rockies.
Kyle Seager: Young At Heart
While both parts of the Kyle Connection came up aces against the Angels on Wednesday, the elder of the two achieved a career milestone. In addition, Marco Gonzales turned in another very good outing.

Mariners Drop Two Games; Catch Up on Covid-19 News
Well, the last two Mariners games weren't much to speak about, particularly Monday's drubbing at the hands of the Athletics.

Over the weekend, the Mariners dropped both games to the Oakland Athletics with identical scores. What exactly happened? D.C. Lundberg talks about both games. Also, Saturday saw the Mariners' first extra-inning affair of the season, meaning that M's fans got an up close and personal look at the ludicrous new "free runner" rule, which led to a cheap victory for Oakland. D.C. talks specifically about how the rule affected that game, and reiterates his thoughts on the rule in general. Spoiler alert: He is less than enthused.
M's Score A's Against Oakland in Home Opener
A little over a week into the abbreviated season, the Mariners won their first home game, and now have an even .500 record.

Recapping the First Weekend of M's Baseball
What did we learn over the course of the first five games of the Mariners' season? (Other than that the host of this program procrastinates.)

Completing Updating the 3,000 Hit Club
Continuing the Locked On Mariners Party in the Panhandle, D.C. completes a project he accidentally started on the air last week: Seeing what the 3,000 hit club may have looked like if the 1981 & 1994/95 players' strikes never occurred.

Updating the 3,000 Hit Club
Back out on the road, D.C. Lundberg continues to update the 3,000 hit club player-by-player, taking each member of the club who played through either the 1981 strike, the 1994/95 strike, or both, and projecting out their season and career hit totals as if the strikes never happened. The city in which he recorded this episode has the smallest population of any city in which he's recorded so far. Tim Wallach has more career home runs that this city has inhabitants.
Son of "What If... The 1994 Strike Never Occurr...
Back out on the road, this time in a town with a population of 676, D.C. Lundberg continues to look at what the all-time hit list may look like if the 1994 MLBPA players' strike hadn't occurred, and the '94 & '95 seasons had been played to completion.
What If... The 1994 Strike Never Occurred?
Back out on the road in the Gem State, D.C. examines some players who were putting together some potentially historic seasons at the time the 1994 MLBPA strike caused the remainder of the season to be cancelled and tries to project if they would have achieved their milestone numbers or not. He also then looks at the effect the '94 strike had on the career numbers of some Hall of Famers and potential Hall of Famers.
Last week, MLB set forth a proposal to get a truncated Major League season rolling near the beginning of July. The team owners approved of this play yesterday, and it now goes to the players' union for a vote. What's in the proposal? How different will the season look? Or will there even be a season if the MLBPA rejects this proposal? On location once again in Idaho, D.C. Lundberg does his best to sort through the reports and offers his opinions of some of the details of the proposal, and on the MLBPA.

Jon D. Miller joins D.C. Lundberg, who's recording the show from the Locked On Mariners Mobile Unit, to talk wrap up the "what if" scenario D.C. laid out over the previous two shows about the 1995 Mariners. The two then discuss some other, smaller "what if" situations involving Mariners' trades and individual player performances.
What If? 1995... (Part II)
Previously, D.C. Lundberg put forth a scenario where the Mariners would have won the division outright during the regular season rather than having to play an extra game against the California Angels to decide the division crown. Today, he looks at how the postseason would have shaped up in this "what if?" scenario, as the show is once again on location somewhere in the Idaho Panhandle.
