Game 67, Mariners at Athletics

Pineiro v Haren. 7:05, FSN. Nothing weird about the lineup, really.

The M’s have a chance today and tomorrow, when they’re up against the shockingly ineffective Esteban Loaiza, with Washburn pitching for the M’s. Oakland’s been almost as bad against lefties as the Mariners.

Everett option watch: about ~200 plate appearances before the option vests for next year.

    #65– I actually think Reed was worse on his miscue than Ibanez tonight. Center fielders shouldn’t run backwards on balls that drop at their feet.

    The lowlight reel from this game would almost be as long as the game.

    Choo with a two-run shot! Tacoma up 4-3 in the nightcap.

    Beavis Bocachica ties it with a blast off Baek!

    #97 You know, when I tell people I HATE the Oakland A’s people look at me like I’m out of my mind. The reason I hate the A’s is, for one, when I first started watching the M’s the A’s were one of best teams in our division (the Stewart, Eckersly, McGwire days). Since then the M’s for some reason just play like total ASS when they go to Oakland, leaving every shred of fundamental baseball ability and good luck at home for the trip. Even in 2001 it was in Oakland that the M’s lost three in a row AND a series for first time all year.

    I freakin’ HATE the A’s.

    Hey, maybe we’ll be able to get a win in this series yet — tomorrow’s scheduled starter, Esteban Loaiza was reportedly arrested for driving his Ferrari 120 MPH early Wednesday while drunk. Can he possibly start after that and even if he starts, can he possibly be effective? (I know it’s against the Mariners, but hmmmmm….). This article was just posted at the Oakland Tribune web site…

    Back in the day there were guys who went out on the field drunk, and still won. I’m not sure the M’s could be a talented team no matter how drunk or hung over they were. Tomorrow’s game is the best shot the M’s have in this series, but not because of anything Loaiza may have done. Loaiza is the weakest pitcher in this series, and the A’s have trouble with lefties like Washburn.

    Has Grover been fired yet?

    Pentland on working with Beltre in Thursday’s times. The boil-down: there’s no hope.

    No mention that in the first game of the Rainiers doubleheader last night, Doyle actually played in the field instead of just DH-ing. It was only the 2nd time since he’s been back. The first time, he played 5 innings in right. Last night it was 7 innings (complete game of doubleheader) in center.

    And then he sat out the 2nd game, even though he also sat out Tues afternoon…..

    Well, I think this series is telling us right where the M’s are. Better than the wors teams in the league, not as good as the better teams. From a rough estimate, I see them as a 70-75 win team. The Everett option could be a nasty problem for next year. Bavasi should be called on the carpet if he allows that option to vest.

    #109: The M’s actually tend to play worse in Oakland than usual. They are probably a little better than they’ve looked the last two games.

    Anyone see who the new manager is in Everett? Do managers at that level coach third?
