So this is what we’ve become. When talking to a friend of mine about the promotion of Scott Kazmir for tonight’s game, he replies:

Perhaps they just wanted to avoid those tough Southern League lineups and let him face inferior competition this time around.

I had no reply. We’re now being mocked by Devil Ray fans. This may be the low point in franchise history.

    What business does Nageotte have on the major league club? Even if it is a tryout.

    I have only anecdotal evidence for this, but it seems that the M’s have been particularly dismal over the last couple of years against pitchers with 10 or less starts under their belts. Come to think of it, they’ve been dismal against pitchers with 10 or more starts…

    Hey, we’re gonna lose 102 games this year, the Devil Ray fans have every right to be smug.
