Game 88, Orioles at Mariners
Thank heavens, the game’s back on and — wait. RHP Daniel Cabrera v RHP Sele? Oooooohhhh.
Congratulations in advance to Rafael Palmeiro on some milestone hit. Boooooooooooooooo!
Bloomquist starts at short. So here’s a question– say you’re Mike Hargrove, and you believe in the hot hand, which is why you’ve been playing Bloomquist every day. How long of a break before you’d assume the hot hand was cold again? Would you try it? And how long does he have to be cold before you go back to not using him again?
And also, where’s Doyle? Fricking play him or let him get his hacks in at Tacoma.
On an unrelated note, Hargrove’s quote in the MLB.com (no link because of their stupid auto-play video clips) —
“I think a five-day break for the All-Star Game would be great. That way you could go home. This way, you spend two days traveling.” — Hargrove on the three-day All-Star break.
Please note how many players have kids in April. So something’s getting done. That’s all I’m going to say.
