rick82Well, Tac, we had to find out if Ackley would crack under the enormous pressure of hitting second in the order. And crack he did! I fear we've ruined his psyche for another half season and he'll need another trip to the minors to clear his head. Get ready Tacoma (the city).4 min 3 sec ago
ThirteenSo... Gillespie sucks, which is why he's thirty and hasn't ever really gotten a chance before, and why the Mariners were able to get him for nothing. And Blash isn't the world's most strikeout-free guy, either. Plus the Mariners don't need to rush another prospect. Now absolutely I agree that the outfield is not good, which is why the team should've added someone over the off-season, but now that LoMo is out this is more or less the best outfield the team can run out there.1 hour 59 min ago
moethedogAlmonte is up to 31 K's in 90 PA's this year. That's 34'4%, if you do the math. Good? No! He's K'ed 52 times in 172 PA's since his call-up last year, 30% of the time. I'm pretty sure that isn't very good. In 81 Spring Training PA's he OPS'ed .557. That isn't very good. In 90 regular season PA's he OPS'ed .608. That isn't very good. He doesn't get on base very often, if you haven't noticed. For a lead off hitter that's not very good. Saunders you say? He's right there with an OBP of .237 and he's slugging .265! His .502 OPS puts him below Almonte! Gillespie has 5 homers and a .456 OBP in Tacoma. He has 11 XB hits in 16 games. Blash homered tonight, his 4th. He has 20 walks and an OBP of .442 in 19 games. Just for your reading enjoyment, you understand.7 hours 33 min ago

okdanEven the crew is asleep after watching this game. They're still showing the post-game show, when the feed is usually cut off right after the last out.8 hours 12 min ago
JDDubM's could use a good bullpen arm like this Fields guy for Houston.8 hours 14 min ago
Tacoma RainMemo for Lloyd... Ackley is NOT a number 2 hitter. Please move him back down in order.8 hours 16 min ago
rick82Ackley picked a fine time to suck again. Shave the beard kid, the magic has worn off.8 hours 31 min ago
rick82Ok, we got our requisite two runs. The offense did its job. Time for the Astros to pour it on now.8 hours 50 min ago
SABR Mattthat's game. I'm so glad I like baseball instead of sports that are actually fun.8 hours 52 min ago

SABR MattI think it's time that the Mariners pull a "slap shot" and just start beating people up for fun. Maybe they'll find their confidence that way. LOL9 hours 1 min ago

rick82Aargh! The cursed Astros and their vaunted, all world pitching staff! Now they're going to throw Josh Fields at us and erase all hope! When do we play some cruddy team? When do the Angels come to town again?9 hours 4 min ago
Tacoma RainHey... we have 4 hits. how many do we really need???9 hours 4 min ago
SABR MattThat was me who mentioned a no-no JDDub. :) I was almost right for a while there. But they thought they could use any scrub and get easy outs, so they brought in a horrendous reliever to make the game interesting.9 hours 6 min ago

okdanI blame Rodney for this.9 hours 11 min ago
JDDubWho was it that mentioned a no-hitter earlier in the shouts? This flurry of K's is even more embarrassing.9 hours 16 min ago
JDDubNo doubt. Dominguez is not even MLB quality hitter, 288 career OBP.9 hours 17 min ago
