SABR MattBuhner has been pretty honest most of the time...he was grousing that the Mariners needed soem lumber all game last time.43 min 7 sec ago
rick82I enjoyed the talk about fighting the middle aged battle of the bulge, with reference to Demitrious Young, Hey, it was a lousy game.45 min 39 sec ago
rick82I'm pretty sure Buhner was being sardonic. He's been pretty open eyed all season. I dunno, maybe they gave him a raise.48 min 24 sec ago
phxterryMatt - Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder -- Jay's commentary, to me, is about as beautiful as he is to look at.51 min 32 sec ago
rick82Of course, Fowler needs to get healthy. Hey, why not lead off Corey Hart? He's got a .370 OBP the past two weeks,and has stolen two bases already this season!58 min 6 sec ago
SABR MattHEY...no knocking Jay Buhner's commentary...he's the best one they have. :)1 hour 2 min ago
rick82OK, scratch Stubbs. Fowler, yeah, sure. Why not? I don't want to watch Endy anymore. Brooklyn needs help in center.1 hour 10 min ago
phxterryTo steal a phrase from the incisive, informative, and articulate commentary provided on television by Jay Buhner, the M's have some serious "boppers" in the outfield. Such as: 1) Ackley - OPS .653, our best hitting OFer, 2) Jones - .634, 3) Endy .618, and 4) Romero - .555. Serious question: Is this the worst hitting OF in the history of baseball?1 hour 12 min ago
SABR MattMariners reportedly made an offer for Drew Stubbs before they completed the Morales deal and the Rockies seemed unmotivated. So that is probably not gonna happen. Next they'll look at Dexter Fowler or someone like that I'm guessing.1 hour 17 min ago
SABR MattSmoak and change for Rios may still happen...we can only hope. Our line-up still sucks. Sorry.1 hour 20 min ago
moethedogWe've got 3 more with Balt. They have two rotation lefties. Then we have 2 games with Clev. They start one lefty. Then three more with Balt. Then 2 with Atlanta....O lefties. Then the White Sox and their 2 lefties. Miller is hitting .160-.218-.247 vL this year. He was .270-.344-.350 last year. Betcha' Taylor gets all the vL starts while here. How many vR starts will be interesting to see.1 hour 41 min ago
moethedogAnd a BTW: I would have bet anything, when I heard of the deal, that the next would basically be Smoak for Rios...and that it would follow within the hour. I was wrong.9 hours 56 min ago
moethedogWas on the way to pick my youngest daughter up at basketball camp today, listening to MLB Radio, when they announced the Morales trade. They gave kudos to Jack for pulling it off, saying he had been at if for weeks. If this trade took weeks to work out something is amiss. They ask for ERam, we offer Pries, we meet in the middle with Pryor. This one should take 3 minutes.10 hours 14 min ago
moethedogIf trading a 25 year old pitcher with 32 MLB innings for a guy signed for the next 55 games takes weeks then any complicated trade might take decades. It is time to release Hart and Endy, btw. Hart was a good/low cost roll of the dice...but one that crapped out. We've got more out of Endy than we could have expected. Remember the 70's line, "If you love something set it free!?" Let's free these guys. BTW (again) there must be a follow up move to the Morales/Pryor trade. This does nothing...nothing...for our gaping COF hole...unless you believe that Hart is a RF'er. At least Stubbs would be something...but he was available more than a month ago. I believe we vapor locked, focusing on the Rays so much.10 hours 15 min ago
phxterryRandom thoughts on tonight's game: 1) If Hart fields that hot shot cleanly in the third inning and turns a DP, Iwakuma gets out of the inning with only 2 runs against him instead of 4. IMO, both LoDog and the Smoakamotive field that ball and turn the DP. 2) I had no idea that Chen was such a good pitcher. Or maybe the M's just made him look good. 3) From the "How the Mighty Have Fallen File" - Endy freakin Chavez pinch hit for Hart tonight in the 9th inning. Can the end of the Hart era be far away? 4) M's officially behind both the Yankees and the Blue Jays for the second WC spot after tonight. 5) M's 12th shutout loss this year. 6) Are the M's the worst base-running team in the AL?10 hours 58 min ago
bsrGood thing we had our "lefty masher" Montero up for this game against a mediocre lefty. Unfortunately he's not a righty masher, so he had to sit in the 9th inning. Thankfully we had situational weapon LoMo on the bench, focused and ready to hit some weak foul balls then watch a 79 MPH pitch float by him for a called strike three to end the game.10 hours 59 min ago
bsrBut hey, he's got company. That's 12 shutouts against the M's in 102 games this year.11 hours 4 min ago
bsrHey now, Hector Noesi has thrown 9.2 shutout innings against us this year...11 hours 7 min ago
bsrEndy Chavez, pinch "hitting" for Corey Hart. Yeah, I think the Hart signing has not worked out as hoped.11 hours 12 min ago
tjmWow. PH Endy for Hart. What's that tell you about Hart? Why is he on the team if you're pinch-hitting him with one of the worst hitters in MLB?11 hours 12 min ago
