Game 142, Orioles at Mariners

In many households, men are taking their place on the sofa and spending hours upon hours watching the National….Football….League.

Forget that. Felix is on the hill. Happy Felix Day, everyone.

    And….that’s the bench. I hope someone gets ejected.

    Grover is a lazy %&%. 1) He clearly doesn’t seem to know much about players in his org that have played for the M’s. 2) He doesn’t seem to care to know about them until he sees them — he has said so himself. What a terrible manager. Today’s case in point: Santiago. His hitting is no better than Yubet but he replaces him anyway. Ah, what’s the point… nevermind

    C’mon c’mon!

    Beltre is as clutch as Spiezio in the 9th.

    Throws up hands.

    Why do I expect more form this team when they clearly have demonstrated since day 1 of the season that they are below mediocrity. I wonder if the teams supermediocrity has started to affect Felix. Players will tell you that when your team is going bad you try to do more — too much.

    156, I think just “throw up”

    158-that is a better discription.

    “Mute works…Man is it painfull to listen to them.

    Well, there’s no question about that. I’ve tried the mute button, and it’s a dandy.

    Adrian Beltre = Jim Presley

    Who are the hacks that pose “questions” to the manager after the game?
    They recycle the same cliches (statements, not q’s) we have heard from lazy managers over the years and invariably inspire more slightly different cliches.

    lauren, token chick said:”My layperson’s interpretation would be yeah, a small strike zone, and too much trying to get the corners.”

    interesting to hear after I got home that Froemming apparently was in a snit because the game started 5 minutes late and he wanted to know why. Apparently Hargrove’s answer that the ceremony ran long wasn’t good enough, and Froemming actually asked for an official explanation from the booth. He also was yapping at Price as he & Felix walked in from the bullpen before the game, and Bryan talked back, and the two of them kept the conversation up during the 1st inning. The general consensus from Huytler & Blowers was that Froemming’s zone during the first 2 innings was smaller than the restof the game.

    We ended up with a visiting niece today & so had bought three tickets instead of using our regular seats– we ended up by chance down in scout-land, and it was interesting to hear their vocalizations on some of the closer calls 🙂

    according to Price Froeeming was bitching at him about the late start, as though somehow it was his fault?! Price said it in a more diplomatic fashion, of course.

    Sonics blew it

    Huh? Sonics overachieved BIG TIME last year.

    C’mon, man, dish!

    I don’t see Presley on that list. Then again you’re kind of a troll so eh.

    That’s actually a pretty impressive list of comps.

    The game started late, because they had a ceremony commemorating 9/11, with emergency workers, a color guard, and the singing of God Bless America. I found it pretty moving. If Froemming has a problem with that… I’m at a loss for words.

    Was at the game. Felix did not look good. Unfortunately for me, that is the second time I have seen him pitch personally. He has lost both of them.

    I meant that litereally– it was grunts & exhalations & sounds of disbelief… and the general opinion was that the pitch Ichiro! complained about was a little outside…

    7 innings
    29 batters

    Not a great outing
