Comment of the week
Dave pointed this one out to me and I keep laughing, so in case you missed this:
Seattle is 14th (last) in the league in runs scored and 10th in the league in ERA, in a pitchersâ€™ park. They need help on offense, defense, mascot dancing, bathroom cleaning, field grooming, and rally cap-wearing. You name it, the Mariners are bad at it. The Mariners donâ€™t need to be picky about where to improve – they need help freaking everywhere. If they can acquire a great player, at any position, they should look into acquiring him. As far as the Mariners are concerned, the only question should be: Is Adrian Beltre for reals?
If so, they should try to sign him. If heâ€™s for real, he would improve several of the Mariners weaknesses: Defense at third base, lack of power, and lack of a good third baseman.
If heâ€™s not for real, then let him go.
