Game 60, Mariners at Nationals

LHP Jamie Moyer v RHP John Patterson. 4:05, KSTW-11.

Looks like Ibanez in left and Winn in center again. I’d have looked at a NL road trip as a chance to give all three LF/CFers (Ibanez, Winn, and Reed) some time off, but that’s me.

    This supports my view expressed some time ago about the value of a good bullpen – i.e. a bullpen not made up of “organizational flotsam”.

    The bullpen’s ERA is still in the 3’s. The rotation’s sucked for most of the season so far, far worse than the bullpen- if we’re going to start ditching “flotsam”, start there. Or on the putrid bench that we have (Willie and Greg, I’m looking at you). I don’t exactly think going “OH NOES THE BULLPEN SUXX0RS WAIVE PUTZ” is really called for, considering that had we converted on a couple of offensive opportunities, this game goes our way. Yeah, we had a bad game yesterday. This happens.

    “Little setback for Spiezio: Backup infielder Scott Spiezio, who is on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma, suffered a mild groin injury and didn’t play in Friday night’s game. “He was held out more as a precaution and he should be okay,” Hargrove said. Spiezio is hitting .346 (9-for-26) in the seven games he has played.”

    In other words, they won’t let him near Safeco any time soon…

    I’m surprised they let that first bit go in, as it could be seen to imply something about Spiezio’s groin. Usually they’re pretty dilligent about catching that kind of thing.

    And just to clarify, that .346 by Spiezio is more likely a reflection of other teams’ desire for us to become confident in him than a reflection of any talent he might have
