moethedogThe daily Jackson report is really good: DJ with two hits including a homer. Pizzano with three hits, he's clearly found his stroke or isn't getting bad luck BABIP'ed anymore. Kivlehan with 2 hits, a double and a triple. I'm willing to bet that two of those three guys make an impact in Seattle. At least one will be Paolini only had one hit but it was his 26th double. Landuzuri gives up 5 hits in 7 innings. Now 5-2.7 hours 22 min ago
moethedogMatt, I'll disagree. The guy is rusty, clearly not in mid-season form and yet he just allowed two hits, no more. Young pitchers figure out the walk deal. They rarely lose the stuff deal.7 hours 34 min ago
merksLooks like the M's won an additional draft pick next year after the 2nd round from the competitive balance draft today. It's the type of draft pick that can be traded which is pretty cool in theory.9 hours 42 min ago
tjmThe Colon comp isn't Chris Young, it's Greg Maddux - same pitch mix, same late movement. You can pitch approximately forever with this stuff. And, if it escaped our attention, Baker was compltely insane. As Doc sez, I mean that in a good way. Guy's a bad dog working a bone. don't go near him.9 hours 52 min ago
MtGrizzlyDivish wants to be a sportswriter. Baker wanted more. And got it because he worked his toosh off while on the M's beat.9 hours 54 min ago
DaddyObsr, I COMPLETELY agree re: Baker. Divish simply does not produce the quantity or quality of content that Baker did. I can't figure out why, cause he shows at TNT that he had the chops. Apparently he just doesn't work as hard as Baker did.10 hours 8 min ago
IcebreakerXJudging from the shoutbox, Walker is sounding like a Rafael Soriano redux. Which must also mean we'll trade him for Jason Hammel.10 hours 13 min ago
mojicianI can't take many more of these recklessly tweeted rumors that are loosely based on anonymous triple hearsay connecting and disconnecting the Mariners to good baseball players: "Sources say that a rival exec thinks that Stanton would be a good fit for the Mariners and Seattle might be interested.".............Can some one PM me if the Mariners sign someone? @Wentmlbrumorinsane10 hours 41 min ago
bsrMan do I miss Baker on the M's beat. I know I for one took for granted his incredible productivity as a writer and analyst. It's like a sleepy ghost town over at the ST M's blog since he left. Dutton and Drayer put out the occasional analysis piece but it's mostly just the daily facts. There's nowhere to get much insider M's analysis these days.10 hours 51 min ago
DaddyOColon, of course, was working the edges.11 hours 23 min ago
DaddyOYou know, that's my impression too. When guys like Smoak and Ackley get meatball fastballs, center cut, they mostly flat out miss 'em. I'm sympathetic when I see a guy who's struggling get rung up on a pitch well off the plate, but if you can't hit centered fastballs with at least average regularity you have no business being at the plate.11 hours 24 min ago
MtGrizzlyI can't remember a team that hits the FB worse than this M's team. Really pathetic.11 hours 46 min ago
phxterrySince 7/3/14, M's are 6-10, losing 4 out of 5 series, including series losses to the White Sox, the Twinkies, and the Mets. In that 16 game stretch, the M's are scoring runs at the rate of 2.16 runs/9 innings. The M's play games on 17 out of the next 18 days, with 13 of those games against teams with records above .500. Before tonight's games, the M's lead in the second WC race is down to 1 game, and it could shrink tonight. If the M's continue their current losing ways over the next 2.5 weeks, they will be out of the WC race.12 hours 40 min ago
DaddyOA-NOTH-er game where we finished a buck short because of pathetic offense. A-NOTH-er season of offensive frustration. A-NOTH-er season where obvious position player holes have been allowed to just continue and continue. This is ridiculous. And yes, rick82, it was clear that Taijuan's beaning of that Mets hitter threw him off his game. He was sailing after the first inning until that moment.13 hours 4 min ago
rick82Happy Felix/Kuma weekend...I pray.13 hours 10 min ago
rick82I didn't see the game, but looking at the details, it looks like Taijuan started rough, really righted the ship, and after he hit Tejada really struggled with his control. I wonder if hitting the guy threw him off his game and made him tentative. Also, yeah, he's still struggling, but Hart is giving good at bats in late game situations the last two days. I've seen enough Smoak, tiring of LoMo but we need a left handed bat not owned by Chavez on the bench. Hart at first, Montero DH, LoMo as situation calls for it, and then see what Santa brings for August.13 hours 10 min ago
jemanjiOne thing a game like today's -- oops, a 2 weeks like today's -- is create an unpleasant buzz around baseball, that the Mariners are ineptly wasting a good season …. driving them to "get across the finish line" for a couple bats. Or not ...14 hours 29 min ago
jemanjiChris Young has been doing this shtick to everybody else for about 20 starts … don't dish it out if you can't eat it … :- )14 hours 31 min ago
SABR MattA gem?? The guy walked 6, struck out 5 and needed 96 pitches to get throguh 5 innings. The Mets aren't very good offensively, Walker isn't very good at pitching, and the Mariner offense is completely pathetic. I have no returned full circle to my global feeling of absolute disgust at this team.14 hours 41 min ago
moethedogI suppose watching Colon (who I like) throw a perfecto at this point should be exciting. Alas, watching a gem by Taijuan get wasted by our set of bats that haven't been added to is even more depressing. The lack of addition more than the lack of hits.14 hours 53 min ago
