mojicianI don't think that Montero's 2012 option year counts because he never went to the minors during that year. I'm not sure how the 2014 restricted list stint factors into option years as well. Montero should be protected for 2015.8 min 12 sec ago
SpectatorStill with the M's from Bravai drafts? Mark Lowe ... ha! full circle, but he's not on the roster yet. Forrest Snow was drafted by both Bavasi out of HS and Jack out of UW. Didn't know that. Nate Tenbrink maybe still holding on by his fingernails. Everyone else has been flushed I think.36 min 35 sec ago
Gordon GrossAssuming we can get Montero there. He's out of options.44 min 56 sec ago
SpectatorAll coming off of Shawn Kelley. Amazingly, with Kelley, Morrow and Maurer, I think the Pods have more Bavasi draftees than the M's. In fact, that might be half of the Bavasi draftees left in the majors. (Though I think there was a Anthony Varvaro sighting recently ...) (Aumont maybe?) (OK Tillman, Fister and Josh Fields I guess + Condor of course.)45 min 14 sec ago
MtGrizzlyKivlehan, DJ and Montero in middle of that Tacoma lineup aught to be something.48 min 50 sec ago
Gordon GrossRomero walked! That's about as impressive for him as a HR would be. Do more of that, son.54 min 5 sec ago
Gordon GrossDJ grabs a single up the middle, much like Kivlehan was doing yesterday - seriously, with one of Taylor/Miller relegated to the Rainiers, and the returning Blash to join DJ, Kivlehan, Marte, Hicks, possibly Pizzano or Paolini... that lineup should hit. Whoever has Tacoma tickets might wanna go take a peek. Dunno how their starting pitching will be (depending on who makes the Ms rotation), but the offense shouldn't let you down.56 min 16 sec ago
Gordon GrossGlad you're on board, Matt. Kivlehan and DJ are both verrry good prospects. They just need to separate them positionally so that both of em can stick around. Kivlehan can replace Seth Smith shortly, and DJ can be in line to take over for LoMo. And if LoMo steps into being a full-time stud, then either of the two prospects can be traded. We'll see where that goes - but man, Tacoma should be an interesting lineup.1 hour ago
okdanHa, how did you beat me to that G? I came here to post the same thing :P1 hour 1 min ago
Gordon GrossKivlehan blasts one out. Because it's Spring and he wants to lift my spirits. I do love that dude.1 hour 2 min ago
SABR MattCall me a major KIVLEFAN!1 hour 2 min ago
SABR MattBy "good year" for Jackson...I didn't mean .265 with 25 dings. I meant the kind of year that gets him listed in the top 20 prospects per BA1 hour 10 min ago
Gordon GrossLOL if Alex Jackson DOESN'T have a big year, that will be among the biggest disappointments in the minors, Matt. Morgan scuffling was something I expected. Jackson needs to do basically what Buxton did at 19 - at least be in that ballpark. Assuming he's in full-season A-Ball anyway, which I fully expect.1 hour 24 min ago
SABR MattBring the heat guys...I'll be subscribing to all of your channels at the start, to give you all your shots. :) I will also be launching one, so I need to dedicate some time to setting up a stats DB again...1 hour 25 min ago
Gordon GrossSpec, I am incredibly stoked for this season and seeing what comes out of the Mariners - and our conversations about them. DOV2 aka The Mystery Van will be a lot of fun.1 hour 27 min ago
SABR MattLet's hope Alex Jackson has a big year too, G1 hour 44 min ago
SABR MattAnd...I feel you, G...my Grandmother is still hanging on and semi-conscious on occasion, but I feel like I already lost her, since she can't talk or move much anymore.1 hour 45 min ago
Gordon GrossAnd yes Matt, that's my thought too - we lost our fallback position, both on trading Elias (because that's what Sanchez was) and trading Deej (since now there is no Choi). Maybe Lara steps up, or Landazuri stays healthy and we get that secondary piece back to enable more flexibility at the deadline. That's what this Spring and Summer are for. Let's hope to see some progress for some of our minor league talents, and more health than many of them had for last year (lookin' at you, Wilson and O'Neill and Lando).1 hour 46 min ago
SABR MattWell, let us hope we haven't lost Victor's Vector forever. Even if he never pitches again, if he lives through this, who knows what he might accomplish?1 hour 46 min ago
SpectatorNo sweat, G. Don't disagree. Glad to have you back as a regular contributor.1 hour 46 min ago
