Rainiers double-header

DMZ · April 17, 2005 at 4:08 pm · Filed Under Mariners 

Continuing the Curto promotion: in case you didn’t get your dose of baseball, the Rainiers are in the middle of a double-header. Listen here or on KHHO 850.

And, please don’t comment further on this and tempt the fates, but– my favorite prospect’s been playing lately, and doing well. He’s DHing for the second game.

Continuing no-jinx watch: 0-2 with a walk in game 1, 2-2 with a walk in game 2

    Is Snelling DHing because he isn’t fully healthy or is the organization just being extremely cautious? I hope it’s the latter, and I don’t mind if he is the DH all year. I just want him to see him healthy for a full season.

    Cool Papa,

    That’s a great question, and I share both your curiosity and concern for Snelling. Personally, I think they are just being cautious. They did this last year, too. Also, with Strong in center (everything you need in a centerfielder, except an arm), and the organization keen on making Choo into a leftfielder, there isn’t a whole lot of room for him elsewhere right now. I say, let him DH until the weather is warmer and he has been healthy for longer than a couple consecutive weeks.

    Hypothetically, they could put him in right. Nunez is there now, he’s pretty bad.

    I was at the first game – Tacoma’s manager (Rohn?) was ejected, did he have to sit out the 2nd game also?

    Finally saw Choo(ey). He’s smaller than I had pictured him.

    Wiki’s blast was nice, he made great contact to the same part of the field in his previous at bat.

    Managers ejected for the first game of a double-header are only out for that game. Many managers have gotten tossed from both games.

    Of course, PCL rules may differ on this, but I’d be shocked if that weren’t true for them.

    DMZ (#5):

    Yeah, I know they have Nunez in RF most of the time. Aren’t they also working Delluchi in out there, too (as well as CF, like yesterday’s 1st game, when Strong isn’t in the line-up)? I’m not saying that “Doyle” isn’t higher in the pecking order for OF playing time than Nunez and Delucchi, only that there are 5 OFs who should get decent time, and right now it seems to me to make sense to let “Doyle” DH for a while, until he is more fully healed and the weather gets a bit warmer. Agree, or disagree?
