DaddyOWhat the M's do in the aftermath of this big win may determine the course of this season. Admittedly the win was only against the Astros, sometimes all it takes is a spark to fire up a struggling team. I wouldn't go so far as to predict it, but I can hope.23 min 27 sec ago
moethedogAlmonte report (because I can't resist): Last 13 games: 11-56 w/ 21 K's and 0 BB's. Oh, Blash with a single and two more BB's today. Got to give Young props for gutting it up today, too.25 min 16 sec ago
JDDubInteresting rick! Seager is one of our purest hitters and it was only a matter of time before he busted out. Hit another just foul the other day. Coming into the game 10BB was good, 17K a bit high. He's still not into his prime and maybe some day soon he'll replicate some of his minor league numbers like 300/400/500.29 min 23 sec ago
SpectatorI was thinking during the 11-pitch AB that maybe it could be the turning point of the whole season. Let's hope.39 min 53 sec ago
rick82But I absolutely loved the Seager at bat on the first homer. What a manly at bat that was: fouling off pitch after pitch until he got one to drive.52 min 21 sec ago
rick82Divish was on the radio today or yesterday saying that Seager's swing looked a little too long and complicated lately, and suggested it could be because he was overused last season, not getting rest, and started compensating for his dwindling power. He did some lower trunk strengthening work in the offseason to help with this season, but that when players get tired (or injured) and overcompensate, they fall into bad habits (could this be Miggy's problem as well). It would be interesting to have a breakdown of Seager's swing, from, say last week, and today.54 min 55 sec ago
JDDubI'd wait on that G! Our starting pitching is scary deep. Maurer looked so promising the other day. ERam, Young and Elias can do enough to give us a chance most nights. We HAVE to keep juggling these hitters around until something clicks.1 hour 15 min ago
Gordon GrossI look forward to writing that one, JD. Let's absolutely see if I can bore some people to tears writing about exciting baseball for once. If we'd lost this game I was gonna post a big Draft piece just to stick a fork in this year, but now I think I'll wait a bit longer. Hopefully after our upcoming 9 game winning streak the draft piece will be anticipatory instead of dirge-y.1 hour 19 min ago
rick82Good to see Cano, Hart, and Seager put an end to this losing streak. They are our most accomplished hitters and needed to step up and make a statement.1 hour 24 min ago
JDDubI'm going to save my money for the sequel, the rise of Z and the turnaround after he was left for dead. It all started when he FINALLY admitted defeat and swapped Smoak out of the lineup. The emergence of Brandon Maurer and overdue tryout for JJ in CF got the wheels rolling smoothly again. As spring turned to summer Paxton, Walker, Peterson, Choi and Elias led a wild run rivaling the exhilarating summer of 95.1 hour 26 min ago
moethedogFly out, ground out, K, K! Almonte is broken. But atta boy Seags! Prove me wrong...I would have sat your rear today.1 hour 27 min ago
rick82Yes, JDDub, you'll find it in the footnote section of Gordon's exhaustive look at the fall of the Zduriencik Empire, a three volume set...but your's at the low low price of $9.95 per month. But wait, call today and he'll throw in an easy reading Children's version, with no scary pictures of Chone Figgins or Joe Saunders - just cuddly cute ducks enjoying a tax subsidized natural environment.1 hour 34 min ago
JDDubYes I remember the Fields situation well. Directed to Rick :)1 hour 36 min ago
Gordon GrossHey, my feed finally caught up to you guys. M'S WIN! My pink elephant jinx worked. FINALLY. Thank you Seager. So much. Might have changed the season there. Seager with a 5 RBI game and a walk-off to take the hephalump-sized monkey off the Ms back before the off day.1 hour 41 min ago
rick82Yes! One of Z's moves pays off for us! Way to call it, Padna!1 hour 41 min ago
Gordon GrossI really hate the Ms getting my hopes up this way. Also, JDDub, the reason Fields is one of Zs failures is not that he drafted him (Bavasi did that) but that he signed him, instead of getting the draft slot back in the 2009 draft. We could have had Mike Trout with that pick. THAT's the Fields tragedy.1 hour 43 min ago
