HACKING MASS is back! This is always a great time: you try and pick the worst players in baseball this coming season based on a combination of awfulness and playing time.
From the Mariners this year we don’t have a lot of candidates. Reed/Lopez if you don’t believe in them, Beltre if you’re in the anti-Beltre camp. Meche as a pitcher if you don’t think he’ll get yanked from the rotation at some point, though even as bad as he is, he’s not bad enough to win the game for you.
Betancourt’s an interesting choice: we like to look at the chance he’ll develop offensively, but if he doesn’t, they’ll still run him out there every day because he’s so good with the glove. He could be the worst-hitting shortstop and not worry about his job.
And if you’re going to win, you’re going to have to make some choices everyone else isn’t.
