Game 27, Angels at Mariners

DMZ · May 3, 2005 at 6:24 pm · Filed Under Game Threads 

RHP Lackey v RHP Meche, 7:05. KSTW-11. Listed some places as FSN, but they swapped it to KSTW, what with the Sonics game on FSN… hmm.

Continuing their consecutive-game streaks: Ichiro! Beltre Boone Ibanez Winn. Boy, Hargrove rides his regulars, doesn’t he?

Meche v Lackey… Hoooooboy. Boone continues to wait on his 1,000th career RBI.

    We all must feel better now!

    Correction: the tying run is ON DECK!

    Woman in red, on cellphone, waving at camera, behind Ichiro: she must be killed, too.

    So much for that.

    Between Ichiro’s strikeout, and that horrific beeping, I want to claw my eardrums out.

    Jeeesh. I didn’t like the team not playing well and losing two over the weekend. But playing really badly and losing, that hurts even worse.

    3K for Ichiro tonight…maybe he is hurt (from The Catch)?

    112mil well spent…Seattle is where professional athletes go to die…

    Drayer just passed along that the tentative match-ups for Boston were posted in the clubhouse– Sele/Clement, Moyer/Gonzales, Pineiro/either Halama or Wade Miller….

    #158– FWIW, for Sexson… the last 7 days:
    7 6 0 0 2 3 9 7 .286 .500 .571 1.071

    #159. um. ok, using the correct part of the bifocals, I see that it would be Moyer/Clement, Pineiro/Gonzalez and Franklin vs Halama or Miller. Given Franklin’s luck, it will probably be the return of Wade Miller to the Majors…

    Regarding Beltre, wasn’t 2004 his only season out of the past four where he didn’t have to rehabilitate from surgery? And didn’t he have surgery on his ankle this past offseason?

    He may yet climb out from a month’s abyss of struggles but those moonshot odds aside, maybe he’ll really turn it on starting in 2006 after a good healthy offseason. By then Felix may be ready, more astute free agents may be added and the team will be viable contenders. Hopefully, if Beltre’s year is disastrous, the negativity won’t bury him.

    His minor league numbers, his early success and his incredible performance last year just can’t add up to a fluke, can they?

    Wow, Thornton… Paul’s faith must be a powerful salve.

    Okay, yeah… I’ll admit to having smiled a bit when I saw his boxscore line for the evening. 🙂

    I owe you guys on the USSM crew some thanks, though. If you had done a bullpen roundtable before opening day, I was all set to have posted more or less the same view of Thornton then, which would have made me look like a world-class idiot five innings into Game 2.

    (No, I’m not going to push my luck with a Dobbs or Bloomquist essay. For one thing, I don’t think the magic works if I don’t actually believe what I’m writing….)

    Beltre’s defense has been wonderful to watch. I’ll jump on the “wait until after May” wagon for him too.

    At least Meche made the Angels earn their way to first base tonight. Musta been rough on them after getting 7 free trips there yesterday.

    #30 … the reason why Beltre didnt swing at that pitch last year was because of the bonespurs in his ankle, the pain wouldnt allow him to lunge for those outside pitches. Before last season it was an easy pitch to call when Beltre had 2 strikes (can you guess which pitch?, I knew you could!). I hope for the M’s sake that its just him trying too hard, but being a life long Dodger fan, This Beltre looks alot like the one who Dodger fans would be pulling their hair out over the past 5 years. As I said in a previous post, he could make Cirillo & Speizio contracts look like bargains

    # 144 – The kid and his family were kicked out of the game.

    Hey, in my MVP Baseball season Beltre hit about .250 with 11 HR at the end of May and by the All Star game he is now hitting .298 with 24 HR…..

    What, I am just saying! 😉
