MtGrizzly‬"I just think he's turned a corner," manager Lloyd McClendon said after Ackley finished 2-for-4 to lift his batting average to .260. "He believes in what he's doing and he's very confident in the type of player he is, and it's showing up in the field."‬12 hours 14 min ago
MtGrizzlyAckley is in a nice zone right now. He's very calm looking in the batter's box, which is nice to see.12 hours 46 min ago
DaddyOWhere would the M's be if the Ackley of July and August was the Ackley we've seen since his rookie year?13 hours 25 min ago
Tacoma RainOh now you have done it... Jinx city... Ackley is about to go zero for thousand15 hours 27 min ago
rick82Ackley is for real. I'm sold. And I didn't think Morales could get even slower. He's an albatross around this offense's neck with his inability to move. He needs more power to justify his spot in this lineup.15 hours 50 min ago
rick82I've taken my grandson to watch 18 innings this week, in which we scored a grand total of 1 run. The problem remains the offense. And last night...James Jones to the rescue? Where's Romero, the guy who's tearing apart AAA? Heck, Ty Kelly, for that matter.18 hours 26 min ago
Tacoma RainAdam Dunn to the A's for minor league relief pitcher.... I wonder how many more moves teams in the playoff hunt will make this year.19 hours 36 min ago
Tacoma RainMaybe our players are tired because of all the travelling and due to the stress of all the close games1 day 9 hours ago
IcebreakerXInteresting that the M's haven't been able to find a way to keep Felix & the starters fresh, even with the extremely awesome bullpen.1 day 11 hours ago
GLSWhy is our pitching staff getting worn down as opposed to other teams? Have our starters pitched more innings relative to the rest of the league?1 day 16 hours ago
MtGrizzlyFelix does tend to wear down in September. Troubling implications for October, should they get there.1 day 22 hours ago
SABR MattA shame that homer by Seager in the first didn't stay fair.2 days 9 hours ago
Bat571LaRoche WAS FRAMED ! (very nicely by Zunino - nice job, Mike!)2 days 9 hours ago
SABR MattI am reminded of 2007. The whole pitching staff looks out of gas. We're in trouble.2 days 10 hours ago

PrairiedogIf indeed the name calling was in any way racist (that is IF) by the scout (based on rumor to this point) he deserves to loose his job. Yes self control on Montero's part should exist but racial slurs by "one of your own" ,then no excuse whatsoever!" Lets see what all the facts are.2 days 13 hours ago
rick82Two frustrated guys who probably want to be higher up in the system.2 days 14 hours ago
SABR MattYeah...I don't think this says one darned thing about Zduriencik. I think this scout probably had a fight with his wife or found out he didn't get approved for a home loan and vented on a player who he didn't like.2 days 15 hours ago
rick82Seems like a lot of folks think this says something about Jack's dysfunctional regime. But wow, talk about a mountain out of a molehill. They both work for the Mariners? This is simple. You bring the 52 year old scout and the 24 year old prospect into the room, and you talk it out, have them apologize where necessary and shake hands, and make sure something like this doesn't happen again. And, yeah, if the story is true, the scout is taken to a back room by Jack and read the riot act for being an idiot, because he sure as heck is supposed to know better.2 days 15 hours ago
MtGrizzlyWe should probably wait to pass judgement until all the facts come out.2 days 16 hours ago
