Game 6, Athletics at Mariners

LHP Zito v LHP Moyer, 6:05. FSN for TV.

Divsion rivals face off for the division lead! It’s crazy!

Interestingly, Felix Day drew pretty well, much better than previous games compared to past seasons. One of the things we’ve seen over the last two years is the M’s have still been able to sell the weekend and summer games even as the others have taken a nose-dive. If the team doesn’t do well and we still see those dates hold up, it’s a sign there’s a ~1.8m floor to attendence in Seattle that’ll erode, if at all, slowly.

    Hey Gomez, look at the bright side, you saw some great baseball! To bad it wasn’t played by the home team but Blanton pitched a GREAT game and Zito wasn’t far behind.

    RE #117 – Sammy:
    The Boss Button is a field on the video player that you can click on when the boss enters your office/cubicle. The broadcast immediately changes to something resembling a kiss-your-boss’ ass letter. I thought that’s pretty cool, as I actually use MLB.TV in the office. Not that my boss needs ass-kissing, I don’t think he cares what I do as long as I get my work in.

    196 – re: Lou big fan of Willie…

    Didn’t Willie only play for about ten minutes for Lou?

    I don’t have any problem with managers being fans of Willie… I have a problem with them horribly misusing him.

    Re: Willie hate out of control…

    No one hates Willie. At least no one I know. But there is nothing in the world wrong with hating to see him play 500 innings a year.

    Through absolutely no fault of his own, he is the most obvious example of clueless management and fan base.

    There is at least a reason for everybody else run out there to play, even those not hitting… some have been young, some have been defensive wizards, some have been expirements that ended, whatever.

    Willie’s only added value is that he can play many positions in a pinch. If you play him 500 innings that advantage is gone completely and he is next to useless.

    I know this has been talked about 7,000 times, but anytime I hear someone say the willie hate is out of control I feel compelled to say it again.

    Bloomquist was first called up in Sept of 2002, he played in 12 games and Lou started him in 8 of those.

    change of topic; the Herald tells us what Dan Rohn is filling his time with while he waits to move up…
