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.1 hour 49 min ago

okdanEven the MLB.tv 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.2 hours 28 min ago
JDDubM's could use a good bullpen arm like this Fields guy for Houston.2 hours 30 min ago
Tacoma RainMemo for Lloyd... Ackley is NOT a number 2 hitter. Please move him back down in order.2 hours 33 min ago
rick82Ackley picked a fine time to suck again. Shave the beard kid, the magic has worn off.2 hours 47 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. LOL3 hours 17 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?3 hours 21 min ago
Tacoma RainHey... we have 4 hits. how many do we really need???3 hours 21 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.3 hours 22 min ago

okdanI blame Rodney for this.3 hours 28 min ago
JDDubWho was it that mentioned a no-hitter earlier in the shouts? This flurry of K's is even more embarrassing.3 hours 32 min ago
