    PMC: don’t know what to tell you. I asked around and did a ton of research before I found someone I was comfortable with.

    I had Dr. Lin.

    It may have been just a weak tapper, but WFB ran it out real gritty-like.

    Miggy Olivo – Sent to AAA and replaced by a 42 year old fossil and a AA minor leaguer. Thats gotta hurt.

    And he was almost replaced by the Laziest Man In Baseball.

    203 – maybe he’ll start catching every pitch now instead of the ones he likes.

    They started singing the Star-Spangled Banner at ballgames before it was even the National Anthem. It was sung before games before WWI, but didn’t become officialy the anthem until 1931.

    Right after 9/11 the M’s were playing America The Beautiful, the Ray Charles version. I wish they could have stuck with that.

    Wow, Borders framed that pitch a huge amount, and still got the call.

  8. c-clamp on May 30th, 2005 9:55 pm

    AlmostEveryday Eddie’s looking to be traded to a contendah.

    W00T! 3 straight now!

  10. Noel on May 30th, 2005 9:57 pm

    Hey, Jamie pitched well enough for a win. That’s a good sign.

  11. G-Man on May 30th, 2005 9:58 pm

    That’s it!

    Exactly one month after the first time he tried for the franchise record victory, Jamie Moyer gets it. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

  12. Jeremy on May 30th, 2005 9:59 pm

    Three in a row.

    Unfortunately, Ryan Franklin is pitching tomorrow.

  13. Noel on May 30th, 2005 10:01 pm

    Hey, Sele improved, Jamie improved, now it’s Ryan’s turn to start pitching well. Of course, he also has to get run support… ah heck.

    Unfortunately, that’s a game I’m going to.

    I actively avoided attending his starts unless I really wanted to see the opposing team — I’d dump the tickets at cost or below to anyone I could find. And it wasn’t so much that he was that awful, but after a couple of years I couldn’t take watching him pitch any more.

    The problem with that strategy is you can only find so many people willing to buy your tickets if you burn them by selling stubs for bad games repeatedly.

    Oakland pulls it out in the 11th. Lou’s head explodes.

    Out of sync as ever here…

    Re.142 – Buhner was a random treat in the color man spot – often inane and dull, but you could tell that Rizzs was watching like a hawk for him to say something inappropriate. I especially loved it when he refered to Ichiro! as “Itchy-balls”.

  17. dw on May 30th, 2005 10:08 pm

    DMZ, we’re there tomorrow. Sadly, we’ve only seen two starting pitchers this year — Moyer and Franklin — thanks to the wonders of the M’s ticket packages.

  18. Noel on May 30th, 2005 10:09 pm

    Whoa, Moyer is 131-70 in Seattle. That’s .652! For his career, he’s 197-147, .573. Not too bad.

  19. Noel on May 30th, 2005 10:10 pm

    Randy Johnson, though, is .657 for his career.

  20. Russ on May 30th, 2005 10:23 pm

    Lou’s head asploded reads better.

    Thatched roof cottages better watch out.

    The “Insert Whatever Company Here” Question of the night last night:

    Who led the Blue Jays in HRs in 1977?

    I yelled out “Pat Borders!”.

    I thought I had a pretty good shot at it.
