Game 13, Mariners at Angels

DMZ · April 18, 2005 at 6:07 pm · Filed Under Game Threads 

Aaron Sele v Paul Byrd (what, really… yup). 7:05, FSN for TV.

Mariners and Angels are both 6-6.

As I type this, the Rainiers are playing the last game of their homestand against Fresno. Listen to it now on the net or at KHHO 850 radio and enjoy the fine play by play of Mike Curto. If you want, you can keep listening as the Mariners game comes on, and enjoy two broadcasts, rather than be annoyed at the audio of the M’s .

Look for today’s ready-made commentary from the press notes, in order of probability:
– Sele was with the Angels after he was with the Mariners. Stats, so forth.
– Boone and the 1,000th RBI (who’s around him)
– Mariners hitting much better with runners in scoring position compared to last year
– Ichiro and the multi-hit games (after Ichiro gets one hit)
– Don Baylor’s return
– Alan Schwarz’s article on teams drafting has the Mariners producing the 4th-highest number of current players in the majors

Please, no wagering

    I’ve looked through the game logs for this game multiple times to clarify that what I’m about to say is true. From the boxscore, you can see that the Mariner hitters failed to draw a single walk against Byrd/Donnelly. From what I’ve seen from my notes and the logs, the Mariner didn’t even get to a single three-ball count in the game. I have no idea how often this happens, but I’m thinking it can’t be too often.

    Scott Spezio is Brutal….

    Randy Winn is going to KILL this team all season–you cannot put together a team where you know your outfield is going to end the season with less than 20HR’s…

    You can have winn or reed but not both…since the upside on JR is infinitly better ditch winn package him with franklin or boone and make something happen,…act now before the standings get away from us..

    I remember posting in spring training about how Sele’s stamina is gone…last night a classic example, he gets to the 4th inning and just absolutely hits the wall. If Sele has a future here it should be in long relief…Dave’s right, our defense is really making our crap pitching staff look good right now.

    I thought the MLB.TV issue was just me. They’ve misspelled British Columbia on the address verification screen, so I figured that was what was preventing me from verifying my location (no self-respecting credit card company would agree that I’m in Brtish Columbia).

    (Sorry, attempted joke didn’t work: I was imagining Valle referring to him as “Doily.”)
