MtGrizzlyThe sports writers have all been talking about how Montero is headed to Tacoma. I guess they could be wrong.6 min 36 sec ago
moethedogKiv-le-mashing-han! Dustin whom?33 min 33 sec ago
mojicianOn further review, I think that restricted list time does not affect option years as long as the player actually spent 20 days in the minors while on the 40 man roster.1 hour 22 min ago
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 2015.1 hour 39 min 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.2 hours 8 min ago
Gordon GrossAssuming we can get Montero there. He's out of options.2 hours 16 min 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.)2 hours 16 min ago
MtGrizzlyKivlehan, DJ and Montero in middle of that Tacoma lineup aught to be something.2 hours 20 min ago
Gordon GrossRomero walked! That's about as impressive for him as a HR would be. Do more of that, son.2 hours 25 min 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.2 hours 27 min 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.2 hours 31 min ago
okdanHa, how did you beat me to that G? I came here to post the same thing :P2 hours 33 min ago
Gordon GrossKivlehan blasts one out. Because it's Spring and he wants to lift my spirits. I do love that dude.2 hours 33 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 BA2 hours 42 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.2 hours 56 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...2 hours 57 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.2 hours 58 min ago
SABR MattLet's hope Alex Jackson has a big year too, G3 hours 16 min ago
