So, how weird is it that the M’s chose now to pick up Bob Melvin’s 2005 contract option? It would have made sense to do this after last season, as he won 93 games as a rookie manager. It would have made sense to do it this season, had the team gotten off to a good start. Instead, they’re off to a horrible start and there have been reasonable people (not just KJR callers) calling for, and hinting at, Melvin not being back next season (cough Paul Molitor cough). Honestly, I would have been less surprised if they had found a team to take Kevin Jarvis in trade.
Oh, and Corey Koskie was safe in the top of the 9th; Wilson never tagged him.
On to extra innings…
I posted this once, but Blogger ate it.
Rafael Soriano is back in the majors, Bloomquist is on the DL (so Putz stays) and Jarvis is officially gone, released, that’s all folks. What, they couldn’t find a taker in trade? I’m stunned. Stunned, I tell you. Stunned.
