This weekend in M’s land

Three game series in Chicago.
- Return of Doyle.
- The White Sox have been way, way better than the M’s over this season. This could be a drubbing.
- Pineiro pitches today.
- While in Chicago, young King Felix gets to hang around with Freddy Garcia, which should make M’s fans wince
- Sunday’s pitcher could be anyone, Jeff Harris possibly, but also this new kid they just now signed from Mexico, Roano Torres Franklero, a 6’3″ righthander, 32 years old, no background information available but a flyball guy, supposedly pitches to contact, can be a little homer-prone. Supposedly has a big, fake-looking moustache and signed a two-week contract.
- Every day brings us closer to the return of the young man from Spiro. I thought he’d get tossed overboard with his drug suspension, but with Campillo’s injury they’ll keep him. They don’t have a choice — there’s no one left in the organization they can pull up without bad things following. I still think they’ll non-tender him at season’s end.
